The recent posts regarding family and friend's illnesses and deaths, got me to remembering something. When I got the news that my father had died (not a surprise at least, he'd been just hanging on for a few months) - I was playing a video game. Metallicorphan and I were duo'ing in Final Fantasy XI when my phone rang... I will never forget exactly what I was doing or where I was in the game. Even months later, I'd get that tug on the heartstrings when I was crossing the bridge near where we were when I heard the news.
I'll also never forget someone who was very important to me during that period - someone I'd never met in real life. Someone who was so supportive and sensitive (oh, yeah, he was, sorry if I'm ruining his reputation on GT!) If you've ever read the Metal and Myto show here, you know of whom I speak.
Thank you, Metal, from the bottom of my heart!
thats alright Mighty-O(and i dont think i have a rep on here,LOL),i certainly remember that night..when you went,because you were the gal to goto,i kept getting messages ingame 'wheres myto'(felt like thousands of people wanted to know where you were at that time),everyone in our linkshell was concerned
i dont think i have had any really bad news while playing a game....unfortunately it prolly will happen though at somepoint,i play that much,if i am not in work or asleep,then i am on a videogame
