Good vs Evil, but which side is which……

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 19, 2010 by chachisays

Our entire lives we have been spoon fed stories on how things are and how certain events went down. Which in all honesty is probably how they did go down.  This I can accept, but there is some things that we have only been given one side of the story too.

Please join me as we step into The Chachi Zone:

Imagine, if you will, a popular story. A princess taken from her castle by an evil villain with henchmen galore to stand in the way.  The villain out to take that which doesn’t belong to him and conquer the kingdom. The only people that can save this princess and defeat the evil tyrant is……. a couple of plumbers.  Brothers no less. One even has the Same First and Last name. They rescue the princess more times than one would believe.

Now, take that well known popular story, and flip it.

We only know one side of the story. the side of which was given to us.  We don’t know what’s on the other side of that coin.  What if I were to tell you that not only in this story but countless other popular stories were filled with oppression and tyranny. Ah, hold on baby birds I’ll feed you. ( that line was not so gently stolen from Daniel Tosh )

Now picture this. A kingdom, Mushroom Kingdom to be exact. Run with maliciousness and greed. A kingdom run by an evil bitch of a princess. One that is not so helpless as she may seem, but one hell bent on conquering all that she can. When one day, the peons decide that they have had enough. they will no longer be punished for what is not a crime. One of them Rises up to lead, to organize, to fight back.  Well, of course the royal family is not going to let this happen. So they hire two “plumbers” to flush and wash away the rebellion. Not so plain cut now is it.

The same story can be applied to Hyrule as well. All we know is that one side says the other took the triforce. Its hearsay.

Chachi Says:  Who knows what really happened in Mushroom, Hyrule or even the mazes of Pacman, he could’ve been stealing from the ghost.  and they just protecting whats theirs.  Who knows.

A public letter of apology….

I did some thinking. (Right, that’s where the burning smell came from.)

I’ve played video games for a very long time.

it varies what i play, and for how long i play.

i’ve done a lot of damage to a lot of “bad” guys over the years, some more than others but in one particular game, one “bad” guy has paid the price more so then others.

So here, for all the world to see i offer my deepest apologies to……..

Blinky.

Blinky,

I’m sorry, for everything. In my defense though, you are the first one out of the box, and the one that seems to know where i always am. However it still isnt fair that you paid more than the others. This doesnt mean that it’ll stop just that i will make an effort to attack your friends first from here on in.

I also want you to know that i am aware that we are both doing what we are supposed to do, so i dont take it personally when you out smart me. And i hope that you dont either.

Sincerly,

Chachi

Tomorrow we discuss the good guy bad guy point of view as it applies to video games.

Pffft, fate…..

Wow, so its uh been a long time hasnt it…..

well as I’ve said before and I’m sure i’ll say it again, if i dont have anything real to say im not  going put it up here. I dont want to waste your time, and mine alike.

People always say that you’ll know where and what you’re supposed be going and doing as long as you’re looking for the signs.  Also that life will show you the signs and be sure to point you in the right direction…. just as long as you are paying attention.

I’ve begun to notice that sometimes if you dont pay attention to these signs life will smack you in the face with them until you pay attention….

But it doesnt always mean its the right path.

I personally am not sure about this whole fate thing. I find it hard to believe that our entire paths have already been laid out for us. That our choices have already been made and we are going through predetermined motions…..

I mean seriously?   fate knows that what im gonna have for lunch in two days? i seriously doubt it.

Now both thankfully and regretfully, there is not evidence to support nor deny either side of this argument.

Chachi Says: When it comes down to it the decision is ultimately yours for the choosing. Life can smack me in the face with as many signs as it wants but if i dont want that path….. my ass isnt going down it.  Whats your thoughts?
