I love this game.
Screenshots from NIGHTMARE EYES | Night In The Woods Part 2! :D
Okay I know we’re only like two hours into this game so far but…
I LOVE THIS FUCKING GAME HOLY SHIT! xD
The characters, the setting, the writing, the art style, the humor and pretty much everything in this game is so fucking good!
I think my favorite character in this game is Mae with Gregg being a close 2nd. We find out a lot more about Mae and how she feels about herself and being back in her old town after dropping out of college and trying to be with her friends again. But a lot of things have changed in her town and I think she doesn’t feel like she has at all. Maybe I love this game and Mae so much because I kind of relate to them in my own life especially in the most recent years. I mean I haven’t gotten drunk at a party or anything like that but I do relate to those feelings of change while you’re transitioning between being a teenager and young adult and when you’re having those feelings while you don’t know exactly what you want for your life or what to do with it. Due my anxiety and just the environment I’m in right now I’ve had a harder time moving forward in my life then most people my age do. While some of my friends are in college or have jobs and hell even one of my friends has a child now too, I just haven’t really done as much with my life these last few years because whenever I think of the future my brain just freezes and I just don’t know what do with my life. I mean I’m almost 22 I think I still have time to find that out but I still feel like I’m not doing as much as I could. But that’s the thing about me I know that I’m not like every person my age just because of how my brain works I’m not like everyone else and I’m okay with that. Plus every person experiences certain transitions in their lives all differently. I understand all that but it doesn’t make feel better about where I am with my life. I constantly feel like the world is moving forward while I’m still stuck in 2013 and I can’t make it stop and wait up for me to catch up. Don’t get me wrong I’m a lot farther then where I was thanks to Seán helping me be more positive in these last almost two years at this point in time. But I’m still not exactly where I want to be and I wish that I was. There’s so many things about my life that I wish I could change but I can’t because it’s out of my control and as sad as that is for me I need to remind myself that I’m still moving forward whether I realize that or not. This game makes me feel kind of relieved because I do relate how Mae is feeling in certain ways and it makes me feel a lot less alone with feelings that have been weighing me down since I graduated high school in 2013. I need to stop being so hard on myself, not only in general but also when it comes to life decisions and my future especially.
I love watching Seán play this game too. Honestly this has been my favorite thing he’s been uploading lately because I’m so in love with this game and I just love the feel of watching him play this. It’s nice experiencing games like this with him for the first time. I love the voices he gives the characters in this game and hearing his thoughts when he plays games that have these kind of nice and relaxing feeling settings to them. He has and shares a lot of interesting and insightful thoughts when he plays games like this. ^_^
Something that kind of bothered me though was when in this video he was talking about Gregg’s personality and how his personality is a lot like that. Loud, optimistic and energetic. He worries about his loud side to his personality annoying people in real life because it’s the kind of personality in people that being around it either exhausts you or gives you energy. So he said he has to look at situation and think about if people are in the mood for Seán or aka his loud side to his personality. Even saying in the video “Okay, people aren’t in the mood for SEÁN right now.” I understand why he said this and I’m not saying it’s a bad thing at all and I don’t think that he has to or needs to be loud all the time because it’s true that his loud personality doesn’t mesh well with every person and there’s so much more to him besides that too. But to me him saying that kind of bothered me because I don’t like the idea of him feeling like he can’t be a part of who he is in a certain situation. His loud side of his personality is still a part of who he is and I don’t think any person should feel like they have to hide a big part of who they are in the fear of annoying certain people. I mean don’t get me wrong there’s no way you’re going to be 100% yourself in front of every person you come across and there’s parts of who we are that are not appropriate for certain situations and we all need to judge when and when not to show certain parts of who we are. We all have stuff about ourselves that we don’t show in front of people and that’s not a bad thing. But maybe this just bothered me personally not only because I do sincerely and genuinely like all of the sides that I’ve seen of Seán’s personality and who is as a person I respect him. But also because I feel like most of the time I have to hide who I genuinely am in front of the people I’m around on a daily basis and feel like I have to justify myself a lot in front of them too. I feel like I wear a mask in front of them all the time showing only a small part of who I am and honestly I don’t think anyone should feel like that. People should be proud to be who they are and not be ashamed to show that. Hopefully that makes sense, I’m not sure if it did or not.. But I wanted to be honest about how I felt about that part of the video. For me I’d like to think that a lot of the time I’d be in a mood for “SEÁN ”. :) But then again that’s just me personally. I’m not sure he’d be in a mood for “VANNESSA” though. xD
I’m adoring this series so far and I seriously can’t wait for the next video! :D
