Hello everyone. First and foremost, I want to thank Eric Bailey editor and chief here at the Castle for believing in me and giving me a shot at writing for this fantastic site. I would also like to thank all of the great writers and content creators who contribute to “the budding flower” of 1 More Castle. You guys are the ones who inspired me to contribute myself with your quality content. I was sucked into this beautiful abyss and after many nights reading through all the amazing articles, I’m going to try my hand at contributing to this wonderful community.
In case you hadn’t read my header, I decided to call this column “The Completist.” There is a reason for this: I love to play through games, to completion. Whenever I start a new game, I have no intention of giving up until my fingers fall off or I see the credits roll. It can be tough, it can be frustrating and it can put undue strain on my marriage but most of all, it can be rewarding. In keeping with my strange compulsion, this column will be dedicated to what it takes to actually complete a game and the many ways that completing a game challenges the player. This isn’t going to be a walkthrough or FAQ sheet but more of a personal take on the challenge and excitement a complete journey through a video game can create. So without further adieu, I present to you my Completist take on “Flashback: The Quest for Identity.”
