I Need a Game

Alright guys, it's game time! Or rather, the opposite of that, because I am between games right now and my fingers feel absolutely lost. They don't know what to do other than push joy sticks and mash buttons, and even now my keyboard is yowling in pain from over-mashing. If you've been following along, you know I just beat The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask with absolutely everything, because doing that makes Majora's Mask an easier pansy than King Dodongo or Queen Gohma. 

Easier than Paris Hilton.
So I now need something to play to occupy the time that I should spend updating this blog, writing novels, writing short stories, getting out of my parent's house, y'know, basically anything that would be actually constructive. I like to justify this by claiming that video games and anime and comics give me more material to write about, when in reality it's all just entertainment porn.

Anyways, I'm apparently entertainment horny, because I am seriously feeling the need to game, and this is a need I haven't felt very often since I finally finished off that beast known as puberty (although I guess hormones are still intent on being bitchy until I'm 25 or something ridiculous like that. Maybe after a decade, my acne will go away?) I've given Legend of Zelda II: the Adventure of Link a brief whirl earlier today, and I'd like to get into that at some point, but there's such a steep learning curve that I really can't at the moment. I mean, I haven't even figured out why sometimes my sword shoots lasers and why other times it doesn't, because my magic meter isn't changing at all.

I also pulled out Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat for the Nintendo GameCube, which I just bought on Friday, along with a host of other GCN games because GameStop's GCN and PS2 shelves are just absolutely amazing. Anyways, I don't have the drums, and while the game is fun enough with the standard controller, the controls weren't really thought out well enough for me to want to play it on a regular basis. It's more of a game I would pick up for five minutes, and shut off without saving. Which I think I may have accidentally done.

Sorry, bud.
So I'm just wondering: what games do you think I should play?
