Sometimes... I'm just not in the mood. I don't know. I just don't have the patience or the time or the whatever. And attempting to play Super Ghouls N Ghosts - this was one of those times.
I don't think I ever played this one before. It's different than the Genesis GnG game right? I mean, I've played the original Ghosts N Goblins plenty. And I kind of love that one but I also hate it hard.
Anyway, Super Ghouls N Ghosts is part of the Switch Online library of SNES games, so I have it for "free." I figured October would be a good time to play that one. Eh. Not so much.
Maybe I'm turning into a curmudgeon in my old age. But this isn't fun for me. It's just masochistic. Don't get me wrong - it looks great. And it sounds great. But it's not great to control Arthur in this game. His jumps are weird. And to be honest, these super challenging retro platformers just kind of annoy me nowadays.
Most nights - when I can find time for gaming - I need to relax. I don't want to be infuriated by difficulty! That's just not fun for me right now. It's just not. So I'll be forthcoming: I straight rage-quitted this game as soon as I got a GAME OVER. Which didn't take long, friends. I'm sorry. I'm just not hardcore.
