Today at our house this happened…
It is a disaster of epic and absolute proportions. I have lost my entire game of Dance Central and I had been playing that for literally hours. I had unlocked most of the locked tracks and was playing on ‘hard’ mode. I will now have to start from beginners and no songs again. I have lost my entire saved game of Lego Lord of the Rings. I have also lost the entire back catalogue of Guitar Hero 2, 3 and World Tour. It’s tragedy times one bazillion and mental breakdown is imminent. All day we have been remembering games we have lost. On top of the ones listed above here are some more…
The kids saved games of Minecraft
450 out of 500 orbs on Crackdown
Hubby was up to the last level in Halo4 and now has to play the whole thing again to find out what happens to Cortana (please no spoilers, I will kill you!)
The damn lion in Viva Pinata. That took me frigging months to get into my garden. GONE!
The saved game on Civilization Revolution where the boys had tanks playing on deity difficulty and were invading other cities for a domination victory, where they were the first to get tanks
Millions of lego coins in our Lego games – Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, Star Wars and Batman – I had finished the lot. I had even unlocked LegoLand on the Star Wars game! I was about six levels in on LOTR.
Harry Potter on Kinect – we were up to the last level. All gone
Hubby’s custom character in Fifa
Zillions of hours of Skylanders with ALL the Skylanders characters upgraded….
Anyway you get the general idea. Our whole gaming existence is gone. It’s all gone.
I took to Facebook to complain about the growing gamer crisis and on my wall I got condolences, however on Hubby’s post we got slammed for our obsession with first world problems, which was actually pretty funny. I posted the above meme to Facebook for the haters.
Hubby pointed out that it could be worse. At least we don’t play any of those long games like Skyrim, Mass Effect or Fallout. I don’t know. I’m just not seeing an upside to this. If anyone is looking for me over the coming months I will be wearing my fingers and dance moves to dust trying to get my games back.
Have you ever lost anything that at first seemed inconsequential but turned out to be a really big deal?
