    I learned my lessons about avoiding categorising things and now seek to do it at every available opportunity. I may even get to the point where every issue can be rendered as a binary division but that will take some more unlearning.

    First up in the mending the errors of my ways and looking around GBAtemp the errors of a few others is to find yourself in a category somehow describing your position on computer games and for that the term most fitting seems to be softcore gamer.

    Definition of the term- most modern languages are almost infinitely flexible and being a softcore gamer places you on the path to being a true gamer (although much like the lesser concept of enlightenment it is something to be strived for rather than something most or even many are realistically expected to be able to attain) hence you are righteous and the words will bear it out assuming your use of language does not fail you (a common occurrence and regrettable but being common it is not unexpected).

    There may be other paths to true gamerdom but it is the contention that softcore is the least likely to see distractions arise therefore other paths are to be pitied and any souls struggling along another may be helped or subject to the purifying flames should time be lacking.

    Pending the creation of a mantra I shall instead cast aside the title of Techromancer (although certainly not the skills) and assume softcore gamer in its stead.

    Gotta love FAST's posts.

    I'm waiting for the True Gamer's mantra, so that I can repeat it when a game makes me rage :yay:

    Find not rage on your quest to the credits, but solace as your character willingly dies in your place.
