So, today I pulled out my old Playstation and plugged it into my old 9 year old TV set and turned it on. It worked! (surprisingly). I put Spyro the Dragon in and started playing.
Suddenly, all the sounds and the environment turned me into a little child. Playing through the game, there were parts which I didn't remember but the parts that I did, I felt like I was a child again.
I played it for an easy couple of hours until one memory of where I was in the game suddenly hit me. This was the last level. The part I was stuck on and couldn't get past as a child. I remember failing the same part of the game over and over.
As I was chasing Gnorc (last boss) through the map, I turned a corner and saw him standing on a platform by himself. I just couldn't do it. I couldn't finish the game which created my childhood.
I turned off and packed away the Playstation. Maybe one day I'll finish it, but not today. I just think it's better if I left it incomplete.
