** Spoilers for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

About 10 years ago, before I was into Supernatural and going to cons, and when I hadn’t touched a camera since high school, I was isolated at home. I was going to uni to finish my degree, but what should have taken three years took me seven. I had lost touch with all my friends. I was, and still am, chronically, medically depressed. 

I had a PS3 and an XBox360, and I was a pretty hardcore gamer. Uncharted, Assassin’s Creed, and Bioshock were all my jam. They still are my jam. But Uncharted was always my favourite. I got a Platinum (got every trophy) on Uncharted 1, 2, and 3. When Uncharted 2 came out with a multiplayer, I levelled up to over 40, and almost did the same in Uncharted 3. For me though, Uncharted was about the characters. I fell in love with Nate, I wanted to be Elena, and I wanted a best friend like Sully. 

Then SPN came along, and with it conventions. I picked up a camera again. Suddenly the world opened up and I was traveling to other countries by myself, making friends all over the world, capturing it all with my camera. When the PS4 console came out, I didn’t have the money to buy it. I was working, but everything was going to travel and photography equipment and cons. I was sad, because Uncharted 4 was going to be one of the first games to come out and I knew it was the last in the series. I was slightly freaking out that it was called “A Thief’s End”, thinking that they might kill off Nate, or Elena, or Sully. I watched while other people got the game, and my friend Schmelke got it and told me it was really good. I didn’t tell him why I was asking him so much. I was happy with where I was, I didn’t regret that I didn’t have the money to spend right then. I still don’t; photography is my world now. 

Fast forward to this year. This is the longest I will be going without going to a convention. I could feel myself backsliding slightly, so I thought, “Okay. You deserve it. Save up and buy a PS4.” So I did. I bought Uncharted 4, and in between work and editing photos I started playing it. 

I just finished the story last night. I sat there when the black credits scene came over, suddenly the room getting dark and I cried. I knew I would be sad; I even joked that I would cry. But I didn’t realise I actually would. I cried so much. 

(These screenshots were all taken in-game while I was playing - PS4 has a share feature, that lets you take screencaps. It was kind of like doing photography during the game, so win-win for me!) 

I don’t really know why I’m writing this, I think it’s to try to make sense of it myself. I’m not one of those people who thinks you need to apologise for loving something, or feeling passionate about something. I think it was because it felt like these characters that had come into my life when I was so vulnerable were getting their happy ending, and for me that felt like hope. It felt cathartic, like saying goodbye not only to these characters but to a part of myself that was still there deep inside me. It’s hard to say goodbye though. Really hard. To say I got a look at what it will feel like for many people when SPN ends isn’t a stretch. 

I keep coming back to that feeling of hope though. The girl in me that was so lost was still there, but she was winning more than she was losing. In the game and in life. 

P.S. “en garde, dickhead” has to be one of my favourite lines of anything ever. 

My dad bought me a PS4 as a moving out present since the ps3 was staying at the house when i left.  originally he was planning on giving me the ps3 and buying a ps4 for himself and it was really generous of him to give it to me instead but i don’t have any games for the ps4 and they’re like, $30 or $40 each, and it can’t play my ps3 games, so i can’t play any games without spending way more money, and i’m too afraid to ask for a ps3 for christmas because he’ll probably get offended.  Right now it’s just a $400 streaming device and i don’t know what to do.  He keeps asking me if I’ve played any games on it yet but I can’t justify spending that much money on something frivolous that i won’t even have time to use that much.  i’m trying to find a second hand ps3 on ebay so i can actually play some of the games i have and i feel bad even spending $50 or $60 on it.  i’ve been trying to decide what to do about it for like 3 months now

Confession: Real talk though? I bought the Origins Edition for both PC & PS4 solely to get the Slipstream skin for Tracer. I couldn't help myself, it looks so badass! The aviator shades, the scarf, it all just screams “badass," and Lena rocks that look so well, unf. I just had to have it! Now, if I could just play her well (lol XP).
