    I can't play my favorite game anymore.

    My favorite game is "Life is Strange", and I truly believe it's one of the masterpieces of the past decade. Something about it...it moves me. That's besides the point.

    I was in love with an INFJ. I'm sure I still am. We stopped talking. We talked about this game once. Talked about the choices we made. Talked about our favorite characters.

    I can't even hear the opening soundtrack without all of the emotions flooding back. All the pain of someone I lost. All the pain of never talking to them again.

    I don't know why it's specifically this game. Maybe because there was already so much emotion I assigned to this game based on how impactful it was on me, that this little bit just sends it all back immediately into my heart. I just...want to play it so bad, but I can't sink 15 hours into this game when I think about her the whole time...

    Sorry, just needed to vent.

    Sorry about that. I had a similar situation with my last ex, we started reading a book series (Wheel of Time) together and I actually really enjoyed. Now it just reminds me too much of when we were dating.
    And yeah, Life is Strange was a fantastic game.

    I can't listen to the Decemberists for a similar reason.

    Well as an ENFP, your Si is inferior so I would assume that eventually in life when you get really stressed you're going to replay that game. Perhaps with rosey eyes.

    My favorite is Final Fantasy X. There's a mix of emotion throughout the entire game so it's not really attached to anything specific, unlike Life is Strange where it's pretty... deep and dark. You have the opening cinematic which is layered with inspiration and adventure:



    You have the menu screen which is layered with relaxation and "home"



    You have the sadness of days met with tension from your enemies



    You have conflict of relationship with his father



    And much more.

    Point is, there's more than just the pain. Don't let Life is Strange fool you into making pain seem bigger than any sort of redemption.

    I'm an ESFP. Se Dom. I really want to play the game so bad but I start it up and the menu music about brings me to tears every single fucking time. I can't fucking handle it.

    I've actually never played any Final Fantasy...

    An ESFP, huh? You would probably like Final Fantasy X-2 then (lol). It's probably more your style. I never played much of it as the main character from FFX wasn't in it.

    That sucks to hear man, and I'm sorry to hear what happened with you and this girl. Is there a chance you'd be able to play the game again once you've gotten over her and moved on? I know these sorts of things feel like they'll get you down forever but it always turns out that they don't, you've got a lot of life ahead of you, at some point in that future is a point where you won't be upset about her anymore. I'm sure when that day comes you'll be playing LiS as if nothing ever happened. No-one deserves to have their favourite vidya taken away.

    I've heard good things about LiS but I've never gotten round to properly playing it. I'll have to do that someday. I love time travel stories and I especially love emotionally intense stories.

    Play it. It's the best game I've ever played and I truly believe it's a masterpiece.

    I don't know if I'll ever forget her enough to play it.

    It's not so much a matter of forgetting her, more getting over her. It'll happen man, even if it doesn't feel like you will, it'll happen. Don't you worry.
