Nostalgia at 12 cents a pop

So I was in a very Final Fantasy mood today. To really get into it, I made myself a packet of chicken ramen. This ties back to my college days, when I spent the majority of my free time eating ramen while playing FF IV.

What weird associations have you made and are any of them about cheap foodstuffs?

    I'm getting real attached to ramen, even though I can afford better I still eat it pretty often.

    Too much damn sodium though.

    EDIT: Also peanut butter, love that so much, I make triple decker PB Sandwiches with sooooo much PB.

    How far are you?

    I literally sunk 150 hours into the game, and now that it's been several months, I am ready to start playing it through again. I had way too much fun with it. I especially love the sound design. It's the best game I've ever played.

    Bagel Bites with my N64 days, I guess
    I mean, I guess it doesn't count that I haven't had a Bagel Bite since my N64 days.

    I mean, I have terrible memory, so nostalgia's just one of those things I don't really get to partake in.

    Sometimes I get those smells that remind me of something though.

    Oh God, I don't remember. I quit when I moved and never picked it back up.

    I think something just got blown up by an airship.

    FFXII also might be the prettiest game ever made.

    For christmas one year I got this huge tin of after coffee mints as that years "gag" gift. It had like, seriously, 5000 of the fucking things.

    So I used to eat them practically nonstop while playing Earth & Beyond. It took me like half a year to eat that tin mints. To this day I cannot eat one without thinking of killing Voltoi in the Antares Frontier.

    I quit FFXII about two-thirds of the way through. The story just couldn't keep me interested. I like more character-driven RPGs instead of overarching-plot-driven. The fact that there was really no motivation for five of the six characters just killed it for me. It got to a point where it was nothing but ''send your party from here to here, spend five minutes realizing you just missed something happening, and then send your party to over there, hot on the case''.

    Sure, it was a good story, definitely an interesting one, but not one really built for an eighty-hour-long RPG.

    Music association - thanks for reminding me, Leli. To this day whenever I listen to certain Rammstein songs like Adios, Engel, Spiel Mit Mir and Du Hast I think of Return to Castle Wolfenstein because I used to listen to this like 2 hour Rammstein playmix while playing that game online. I'll be sitting here chilling, when "Du Reicht So Gut" will come on randomly and I'll suddenly get flashbacks to flamethrowering bunkers full of enemy combatants, or using the timing and spacing of the gas grenade airstrikes to pull some real smartbomb type shit - like bombs landing on the lip of a bunker window, or going down a stairwell.
