    I played through that whole game due to my love of Reboot. The plot introduced a bunch of stuff, like the sister city, way before it was brought up in the show.

    Sad part is I don't think a game cube ever landed in the game. That would have been cool, going into another game.

    The Reboot video game caused me to lose Great Greed, one of my favorite RPGs, for the original Game Boy

    I was able to reacquire the same copy of the game sixteen years later

    How?

    Back in the wonderful days of middle school, we had a game-trading ring going on. You could either trade games for keeps or just borrowing, it all worked on the honor system. One game for one game, the console didn't matter

    So I let this kid borrow three games of mine, including Great Greed, and he let me borrow three of his games. When I'd finished with them, I brought them back to school and he brought back three as well, but Reboot was one of them, and that game was not mine. I reminded him that Great Greed was the third game I lent to him, and handed him back Reboot, but he said he'd talked to everyone and didn't know where this copy of Reboot came from and assumed it was mine, and then he said I could just go ahead and keep Reboot, and he'd hold onto Great Greed a little longer since he hadn't played it yet.

    Flash forward a few weeks, I'd played Reboot a bunch, never beat it. No one in the circle ever mentioned the game, I even brought it up to all of them. "Free game," I thought.

    And then one of my friends got Final Fantasy VII and it looked super cool and I wanted a copy, so I went to the flea market to do some trading to get a copy. Reboot was one of the games I traded. The next week I went back to school and the kid came up to me and was like "hey, Reboot was actually my brother's game, so if you can just bring that back" and I told him I didn't have it anymore. So he gave his own copy of Vigilante 8 to his brother and kept my copy of Great Greed.

    Flash to 2014 and I end up working with the kid's older sister. I mention this story to her and it turns out her husband had actually gotten a copy of Great Greed, from her brother. I bought it off of her husband for $10

    That's kinda how my brother traded away TMNT for the NES for Strider. The other kid then moved before he could trade back but TMNT was horrible so it was a slight step up.

    Let me tell you about Reboot.

    Back in 1994, not everyone had consoles, it was a dark time. So for people like me, who's options were to visit other people's houses for their console fix, this scratched the itch of video games that you couldn't play.

    I could also tell you the other story in 1994 where 11 year old Blake read in a magazine t something called the internet and I was so excited to use it, I saved up some money to use it at my local library, sat down in front of the computer for my allotted 30 minutes and couldn't figure it out and nearly cried that I wasted my four dollars.

    As I type this, my watch just told me I got an email.

    There was no trading games in my school, but I did buy Quest 64 from a kid once for a quarter.

    The kid also owed me a quarter so I got it right back at lunch.

    It's an RPG where everyone is named after food and food-related things. The princess is named Cupcake, her servant is named Microwave, dog is named Candy, etc.

    It's also fantasy-but-not-really

    Like there are kings and knights and wizards and stuff and all the trappings of a Dragon Quest/FF, but there are also weird anachronisms, like there's a quest where you have to go to this abandoned record factory to rescue this singer who's trapped in the building, and you're navigating across these giant moving turntables
