It wasn't so much the game, but the combination of resident evil code Veronica and my eldest cousin. I had a dreamcast and when my cousin found out, he went and rented out code Veronica. He called me and my other two cousins over and told us we aren't allowed to leave until we have completed the game. This was pre YouTube, smartphones and tablets. My cousin had printed out the entire walk through at his university and made us complete the whole game. We were pretty much locked in his room for the weekend with threats of being beaten up if we don't. The combination of a crazy older cousin brother along with choice veronica made for some special memories.
Whoever said life to be like a box of chocolates clearly didn't know what he was talking about.
Life is more like a game of bumper cars. At every turn there is a possibility you will get screwed.
