Scenario: You are in stage 8 of Fireshark. You haven't died, and you have max powerups with the red whip weapon. You have 11 lives you know about, but only started counting recently. Suddenly, from nowhere a crazy fucking shot from directly in front of you hits you and you die.
Now you have the three shooter, it is practically the end of the game and there is no way you are going to make it.
When this happened to me today, I was like 'fuck it' and turned the game off and left. If I was younger I am sure I would have used every single one of those lives 'trying to beat Fireshark'.
Has anyone else lost the 'spirit' of things or is it just me? I absolutely can't play anything with a plot anymore, it's just too much work. I tried to play Out Of This World and didn't even make it through the intro. There's all this crazy stuff going on around me, I can't concentrate.
