This week's topic: Game 

I actually have a rotating set, but this one really marked the turning point of gaming for me. It made me realize games could tell a story and not just be a puzzle to figure out*. I started playing it the summer after 5th grade (1995).

It has an epic storyline and deep characters. 
It was the first game I played where the female characters were strong and who actually drove the story forward.

I own several versions of this game. Not all of them, but more than necessary. 

I even made my own knitting chart for my "favorite things" scarf. 
(link goes to the original idea/pattern, not my own.)

*I also like the traditional platformers. I just wasn't aware that games could also do something else.


  1. I've never been much of a video games person. My husband and daughter play them, but not me.

  2. I definitely heard some great stuff about the Final Fantasy games. I've never played them though. Doing video games myself feels way to stressfull. LOL! But I love watching other people play.
    Thanks for signing up and sharing your favorite!

  3. I haven't played the Final Fantasy games. Great scarf!
