I have a wondeful (to me at least) story that I would like to share.
Imagine, if you would, the following:
A cold December 07, 2008 evening in Big Lake MN. Our puppy is fast asleep over the living room vent, for which he has a strange affiliation. My wife is standing in the kitchen honing her culinary skills, i.e. making herself a sandwhich. I'm sitting in the living room on a late Sunday evening working on the last 3/4 of Suikoden V.
Sunday evenings are typically dull and dreary; an exercise in tedium and bordem as the impending work week looms on the horizon.
I'm at the part in the game where you have to rescue the baby dragons from the evil bad guys who wish to do them great harm. Upon leaving the cave in which the afformentioned baby dragons reside, I enter a battle with two of the assassins. Normally, this battle would have played out like countless others before it...which equates to George Prime running around the screen furiously killing all he can see. Then, from the kitchen, eleven of the most memorable words I've ever heard capture my attention.
"Either I just pee'd my pants, or my water just broke!" exclaimed my wife.
Fourteen hours later, our daughter Eliana was born.
My wife was due a week before. I was expecting it to happen at any moment. Fortunately, I had time to save the game before rushing off to the hospital.
Now, while this may not be the most exciting story to some, it is definitely memorable to me. So much so, in fact, that I doubt the memories of the evening will ever escape me.
With that said, do any of you have memorable stories involving video games?
