hit a slump in a certain aspect of life. The number of friends I have with 3DS's
has more than doubled over the holiday,
and naturally, being the one who had owned their 3DS the longest, I thought
this would at least give me some sway in recommendations. It doesn't.
the five friends I have who have a 3DS, 4 of them have been playing Pokémon X/Y
nonstop (three of them just got it, and one of them has been pulled back in.)
Recently I tried approaching one of them in hopes of convincing him to play
some of my favorite 3DS titles. This is pretty much how the conversation went:
"Hey *inset name here* how are you liking your 3DS so far??"
"I love it! I wish I had gotten one sooner, I LOVE Pokémon!"
"That's good, that's good. I can see you've made a lot of progress in it
actually. So, what are you planning on playing afterwards?"
"Fire Emblem: Awakening?"
"Really? That's great! That was one of the games I was going to try to get you
"So, you want to recommend some games to me?"
"Yeah! There are quite a few awesome video games that I've played on the 3DS
that I want to try to get more of us to play."
"Okay, then I think you should know that I don't want to play and JRPG's."
conversation pretty much stopped there. I knew that Fire Emblem Awakening is a
prime example of a JRPG, and so I Pokémon for that matter, but I knew pointing
it out to him would do no good.
can you say to someone who is so utterly against something that they even look
over some of the most glaring of details? What can you say to a friend who has
similar interests, but not really? What can I say, so that I'm no longer alone?
