I always feel nervous about making a new thread, I donít know why but I guess itís because I put high expectations on my self, and just want to look cool like all other forum posters. (Donít even know why I have that thought).
But anyway, I think this time I will relax and just go with the flow.
So what I want to do is what the thread name suggests, I want to thank you all in here for being Monkey Island fans.
I donít have any friends who is as big a Monkey Island fan as I have just become. I have gotten 3 people to play ToMI, they enjoyed it but they are not as excited about it as I am, but then again maybe I am just an over excited person, but there is not really anything wrong with that
I must admit though that my fan status only started just recently (As I have just joined the forum this year).
I saw my brother play Curse of Monkey Island many years ago when I was about 10 or so, and later I watched him play Escape from Monkey Island when I was 13. But that was it, and I just slowly forgot about it. Then just recently I was bored and wanted to do something, so I watched some Letís Plays on Youtube, and the Monkey Island series just happened to pop in to my mind, I watched them all from 1 to 4. After that I saw Tales and I watched it quite far and I thought it was very funny, and then my Boyfriend suggested I should buy it if I liked it so much, so I did.
After that I was instantly hooked, and I never regret buying it. Childhood memories came back, and I started to become a real fan, and started to regret that I have missed out on something so great as this all these years.
I only have ToMI so far, but in the near future I will buy SoMI:SE and when it comes out this summer, LR:SE.
I bought the Deluxe Edition of ToMI so I am waiting for the DVD and all the extra goodies, and I bought the Voodoo Cards. And when the finances allows I will buy a T-Shirt, the Mug and all the Buttons. And if anything extra comes out, I will buy that as well.
So yeah, in a short time I have become a huge fan, and just wanted someone to talk to about it, who feel the same way I do.
And this forum gives me exactly that, friendly Monkey Island Fans. Itís so great to have a place to share thoughts and excitement, when the real world donít offer you those opportunities. So nice to know you are not alone
Oh and here at the end of my post I want to thank Wolfstar27, after just about 40 posts and you want to be my friend.
Just means that my achievement for coolness on a forum (Donít know why that is important to me) is going somewhere, I have never had forum friends before, I feel so giddy
Ok I will stop my rant now before I embarrass my self, but again thank you people for being Monkey Island fans
