My Mother, the Gamer

To this day, my Mom has logged over sixty hours of playtime with Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. It's kind of funny, because she used to talk about hating the traditional RPGs. (She did however play through The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, in fact finishing it before I did.) I know it's not totally traditional, but it's enough to make me laugh a bit. Sixty hours. For the record, I think that comes to over twice my playtime on that game. Unfortunately my Gamecube is having trouble right now, which is a bit of a shame because she's on the last boss--just that close to beating the whole game. It's not guaranteed to work or not to work, is the thing. In other game-related news, I did a bit of research and found out Tales of Symphonia is in the "Used" stage. Hopefully I'll be able to find it somewhere, and hopefully the Cube's not totally busted by that time. At the very least I hope my Mom can finish Paper Mario before that happens.
