This is a topic that got brought up on the podcast but they never really dove into it. Lots of people have something they got very attached to earlier in their life in a way that was formative. Kingdom Hearts is an obvious big recent example, where a lot of people are personally attached to that world even if that was originally at a different point in their life.
Do you have something like that? Something that meant a lot to you when you were younger, and still might now. Even if you maybe think it’s silly or cringey now, you can’t deny how it was important.
The Worlds Ends With You is a different Square Teen RPG where it’s an emo protagonist who learns about the power and value of connecting with other people. In some ways it came right after when it was most relevant to me, when I was already trying to not distance myself from people and actually be sociable. But TWEWY was a very good affirming game that spoke to thoughts I was already having about why I wanted to be more social and what I was missing out on. It also helped a lot that it was a rare game where I connected with the characters too and cared about what happened to them in the weird Square friendship melodrama that played out.
