KS gets into your head...

Post by metalangel » Fri Jan 20, 2012 11:09 am

... and I'm not sure if it's in a bad way.

During the breaks when I had to work/eat/sleep, I was thinking about where I was in the current story.

I was just in the supermarket, standing in line, thinking about Shizune.

I can't think of the last time I played, read or watched anything that preoccupied me quite like this, where I was more interesting thinking about the goings-on in a pretend world than the real world.

The bad part is that it's distracting me from my real other half, and is giving me doubts and regrets and second thoughts about many aspects of my life. Maybe we need a KS Support Group?

These forums act like a support group, I've poured my heart out multiple times to be comforted and understood. Do NOT think that you alone with your current feelings. I keep mentally reinacting Hanako's route over and over and it's effecting my output at work, appeitite and well, more or less have fun (complete loss of interest in video games) not to mention the destruction of my healthy adolescent sex drive.

I got rid of those feelings, only the good feelings of this game stayed :)

I think that will happen too you too eventually!
Completed paths:
Hanako - Good ending
Shizune - Good ending
Emi - Good ending
Rin - Bad ending :$
Lilly - Bad and good ending

English isn't my first language, so I might make some mistakes when I write something ; )

I feel almost the same as TKOF, but with Lilly instead :D
But my "bad feels" are almost gone, most of the time I just smile and enjoy the memories KS gave to me.

There's nothing wrong about feeling the way you do, and I would like to claim that this is one of the most mature - level headed community I have ever heard of.
After playing Lilly's route I started eating pizza with a knife and a fork ^^ I'm such a gentleman.

I got bored.
Went to 4chan.
Bad decision.

The feels are kicking in again, and my head feels so painful. Goddamn it.

Any thoughts on coping with the seeds of doubt and regret it's planted/reawakened in me? I'm one of those people who hates themselves for stupid things they did as a teenager and every time the memory comes up I swear and grumble to myself.

That KS is all about those early relationships, that I screwed up IRL, it's not doing me a lot of favours.

It was the same for me with Lilly, it was really messing with my mind the first day after finishing her route. Nothing is bothering me now, but now I just smile at how pretty/beautiful she is (Kudos to the artist) and her good ending. :P

-I apologise if this gets a bit off topic-

Generally 4Chan is a bad decision.

The only worth while boards (for me atleast) are:
/a/ When you actually want to talk about things like KS though prone to spammers
/x/ I'm at the same time terrified and intrigued that the phenomonom that is "Slenderman" and is there is always a thread going there
/v/ Very rarely is it a good idea to go to /v/ other than to argue against a sea of implications but there are some moments that being it together as a family, the most recent is the 3-4 hours "we" spent watching the value of EA's stocks plumment.

I'm pretty sure one of the better studios could make 26 episodes out of the daydreams I had regarding a Hanako true route (solving every character's problem while pursuing her romantically).

I actually don't even mind.
"100%"
My final ranking: Hanako >>> Lilly > (Misha >) Shizune > Rin > Emi.

I know... Even when I wanted to just get through every ending, I stopped after Lilly's... I just couldn't let her go away forever, I wasn't able to. It hurt so much...

And then, when I thought I was able to go forward, I played for Emi. I broke again. Not only it hurt me that Lilly would go away forever, but also that Emi was going to keep all that pain for herself, without being able to rely on anyone...

Still, the one that hurt the most was Lilly's. You could say that I love her.

When I finished Emi's story I swore that might well be it, I wanted to leave it there, it was such a beautiful thing.

But I couldn't resist, and I went back two days later to 'do' Shizune.

Now I'm forcing myself to wait to do Rin because for one thing I fear overloading myself with the game and all the emotions it raises, and for another that I'm enjoying still being fresh and into Shizune and don't want to let the unique feeling pass quite yet.

I start Lilly route earlier today and finished shizune's two days ago.

I'm curious about the plot and characters, and i think a lot about the scenes, their meaning and so on. My semiotics teacher would be proud,

But i still cant relate with my fellow forum dwellers who are having trouble eating and sleeping, or daydreaming about Hanako/Lilly.
Don't just eat that hamburger, eat the HELL out of it!

well i get what you mean.Some people are more sensitive and get emotionaly trapped with thing that have good scripts music e.t.c.
The fact is that in KS the setting is already making you emotionally upset.And yes it gets into your head . The best solution i can offer is talk about it ,share it.
About the sexual drive loss.....oh god i look at girls and i am like <<Hm...they do look pretty but all that matters is whats inside them....>>
And eventually you see the emptiness of most people these days that makes you wish everyone had a bad story or a dissability so that they can be better beings.... :( :(
The world is a beatiful place but to enjoy it to its fullest you need to have a large heart, the strength to move on and forgive and people by your side, who you love and they love you too!-just me, the little fool ~~~<3

Yeah, this games has gotten to me. I findmyself to be comparing people I know or meet to charecters. Most of all, in the past few weeks I have been dealing with the nagging cough that is the legacy of a cold from the Holidays. As part of that, I have been drinkng alot of tea. On more than on occainsion, I have commented to myself "my tea consumption has reached Lily levels."
