 @NintendoLegend  @Bigjoe91 Yeah, Bill Gates stole the concept from the Amish, simplified the rules, then turned it into a Star Wars spinoff, and the board game was based on that.

 

I'm pretty sure that's the story.

Hey, this is Jave from HG101, first-time caller.

The one game that came close to making me cry was The World Ends With You.

 

It's kind of a spoiler, so skip this paragraph if you haven't played it, but I was at the final boss and just getting my ass kicked over and over again because I couldn't figure out what I was supposed to do, and this rolled on until like 1 in the morning. So I was tired, frustrated, relieved, and a little baffled by the way the story was unfolding, and then, with all this stuff going through my head, they got the part in the ending sequence where they almost... but don't quite... reveal Shiki's real face for the first time, and for whatever reason, I came very close to losing it at that moment.

 

I have cried at movies, but it's usually the music that gets me. There's a scene during Star Wars episode 3 where the music slowly transitions to one of the motifs from the original film, and a wave of nostalgia always hits me at that exact moment. Likewise in the new Muppets movie when they sang Rainbow Connection.

 

Also, I think Passage is one of those games you need to have a bit of context before you start playing. I tried it on a vague recommendation and just found it to be utterly confounding, and I can't go back to it either.
