I remember my parents gifting me a PlayStation 2 for my 20th birthday. No games. I was living on my own, in a city where I knew virtually no-one, and I was very lonely. I bought Final Fantasy X and, of course, loved it. But I did not have a memory card at the time, and so I would leave it on all day and all night, and excessively grind out levels to ensure that I would never, ever be killed by an enemy or a boss, and wouldn’t have to start over again.
