...for a device that would erase a specific part of your memory, so you could play your favorite games again for the "first" time.  This could also be used for movies and books etc.  Kind of like what I think Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is about (though I haven't seen it).

I suppose I'd pay a hundred or two for such a device so I can be marveled by Planescape: Torment (how fitting!) and Starflight 2 all over again.  And to erase memories of spoilers I've read on this net we call Inter.

It would be cheaper and safer to simply enjoy other games, but too few of them are as good.  So whether it takes a special device or a good, hard punch in the face, sign me up.

Oh there's been something like that on the market for ages... just head downtown in your local urban center... look for a shady guy on a street corner and ask him for a quarter.

Viola!  You won't ever remember what you played the night before, let alone a few years ago. slywink

I'd pay at least a few hundred, more if I could afford it. Could forget about "The Ex" once and for all, too.  :wink:

I wouldn't want to do it. If the only thing it erased was my memory of playing a favorite game then it would go something like this:

"Yes, I'd like you to erase the memory of me playing Planetfall. That was a great game and I'd like to enjoy it again!"

Several hours later. "Hey, what's this planetfall icon on my computer? Lets try it out."

"HOLY CRAP! Its all text! OMG! Who the hell plays this!??! Who's the joker that put this on my computer?!"

No thanks. I'd rather keep the memories in their current blissful hazy state smile.

Uhm, that would be bad. It means you've unlearned the lesson that she taught you. (never share a bed with anyone crazier than you are).
