Your first love affair began casually, at the introduction of a friend or a random encounter from a gift card and a used game sale. You played the game, initially admiring it for its beauty and later becoming completely enamored with it and its finer details. Everything about it spoke to you; the story, the gameplay, the visuals…you simply couldn’t get enough of it.
Soon, you were absorbing additional fiction, attempting to squeeze every bit of canon from the universe in order to get your fix. You gained an encyclopedic knowledge of the franchise, debated its hypotheticals and nitpicked discussions with other fans, ran a fan site, and maybe even put up the money to buy limited edition statues. It's possible that there's also a tattooed portrait of a character on your forearm. Like a first love (hopefully without the heartbreak), your devotion to the game may eventually fade, but the connection you felt to it will always be with you in some small way...especially if you did get that tattoo.
