Grandma Confronts An Old Nemesis
Grandma's next game is Fatal Frame 2: The Crimson Butterfly.
She told me all about the first game as we drove home, a game I had never played. The more she told me about it the more I was intrigued. She fired up the PS2, gently replaced Katamari Damacy and got started on Fatal Frame 2. It was a poor choice of timing however; Grandma wanted to make sausage and potatoes simultaneously, bouncing up and down after cutscenes to go turn the food in the kitchen.
This made our first reactions to the game unique. Here I was, completely creeped out and ready to take on some punk-ass ghosts; and Grandma's in her chair at the helm guiding a twin around a terrifying town when she'd suddenly scream out "MY POTATOES!" and run into the kitchen to make sure they were okay. Somewhat annoyed by this (hey, man! I was getting into this game just watching her!) I decided to turn up the surround sound a bit.
Big fucking mistake.
When she came back and continued playing; the first ghost encounter after one finds the Camera Obscura was perfectly timed.
Grandma jumped a fucking mile high; laughing and screaming at the same time like she was at an amusement park. Then as encounters would occur more often, she began jumping when the phone rang, or when one of the kids would come up behind her and ask her what game she was playing. What can I say, she just loves to be scared.
This game will definitely be enjoyed loud.
