Obsession Defined: The Donkey Kong Story

We’ve all heard the story a million times. Boy meets Girl. Boy and Girl fall in love. Monkey kidnaps Girl. Boy dodges barrels, fire, pies, and springs. Boy rescues Girl and maims Monkey.

Okay, maybe we haven’t heard that exact story a million times, but apparently Nintendo thought the story was worth telling. And, apparently, TG wholeheartedly agrees, because he is utterly obsessed with the original Donkey Kong arcade game.

He has spent countless hours playing the unlockable port in Donkey Kong 64. He has no patience for the rest of the atrocious ports out there on the other retro consoles. Yup. He’s a DK elitist.

Best part? He’s never actually played the actual arcade cabinet version.

So, tell me: What are your unexplainable addictions?


About Amanda

Amanda is a 20-something flailing gamer. While she loves MMORPGs, the company in them often triggers flare-ups of her social anxiety. Her all-time favorite games include Everquest Online Adventures, Eternal Sonata, the Animal Crossing series, Katamari Damacy, and Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure. She lives on junk food, and her favorite books are equally trashy. She doesn't believe in putting two spaces after a period, but she does strongly believe in the serial comma. Unfortunately, she has a penchant for starting sentences with "and" and "but;" hopefully you won't hold that, or her excessive use of semicolons, against her.
