    “your existence is a problem for me and my religion”

    There’s something to be said for a game that can bring you back and genuinely give the feel of your youth. How often is it in a game you actually feel the desire to talk with your mom or dad on the phone and get uplifting praise? Yeah in Gold/Silver/Crystal there was a need to […] More
