Aaamaazing: How I Learn To Be a Better Man

Though lovers be lost love shall not.
- Dylan Thomas

Braid is a game I struggled to finish - I�m simply bad at puzzle games of any kind, but the aspect of the game that truly affected me was the story. I�m not going to rant on the ambiguous nature of the game, but more about the literal words used in the game.

Before you enter each world there are a number of books; these books contain a little paragraph that tells you the story. This little piece of writing is what affected me emotional, not the game itself, but the words in the game.

As you progress through each world. The paragraph in the books get longer and complicated, but starts to reveal your character. These paragraphs can almost be a short story into itself, and like Franz Kafka�s amazing short story �Twelve Sons� � I can relate to it to on a grand scale. Our protagonist, Tim, is me.

Braid is the only game to make me feel this emotion. It�s the only game that had me pause for a moment and think about my life. It�s the only piece of art that told me I wasn�t alone - everything will work out... it's the only thing I can truly relate to.

A Small Thank You

I started a blog at this very site to let some of my feelings out. In some way Destructoid was therapy for me. I write about everything from my mother, past relationships, financial situations, friends, hipsters, school, etc. This is done not for sympathy, but as a way to expresses myself. My financial situation is a mess and I have no idea how I�m going to make a living, but writing and reading some of the response from great users have bought a wealth of positiveness to my life; It really doesn�t have to be anything big, but a simple comment of appreciation is enough to fill my heart with joy. It�s strange writing this, but joining this community has been the best thing I've ever done, well, second best thing; getting laid is pretty cool. What I�m trying to say here is thank you. Thank you for this awesome community. Thank you for reading. Thank you for commenting. Thank you for being awesome.

A big thanks goes to falsenipple for the header!
