King over my mind

That sounds familiar... although it conjures up feelings like anger, sadness and exasperation.Demandred20 said:
Ah, found it! Oh, it's the second one I own. Actraiser 2 is one of my biggest gaming shames. For whatever reason, all my experience playing games leaves me the moment I start playing it. I have never made it past the intro stage(Yes, seriously.).... I'm pretty sure I'm not exaggerating when I say I have given about 20-50 tries at it. I don't know what the hell it is, from what I remember the intro sequence doesn't introduce any game feature or control scheme that would cause such difficulty. I just can't seem to gauge jumps, fight properly to avoid damage or learn from previous mistakes. It's uncanny, no game has ever made me feel like such a useless tool as that game!
I have to say, it's rather frustrating whenever I hear there's an amazing game beyond that point. I used to be content with my fluke purchase of crappy side scrolling brawler/platformer[sub][sub]This is likely entirely wrong but as I said, I failed to get passed the intro section...[/sub][/sub] while doing my best to ignore people saying it's an underrated gem.
Sigh, time to fire it up again this weekend... I truly believe there's a great game in there, I just wish I could experience it one of these days.
