So i’ve got my self a nice little cold, stuffed nose, cough, disoriented. I don’t get sick often but when I do I am completely out of it. I get hit hard. Getting hit so quick with this sickness i started to remember the last time i got sick.
Last time I got this sick was last summer while I was sick I decided to play Hotline Miami. For those who are e unaware of Hotline Miami, it is a top down twin stick shooter. You play as an unknown character who receives cryptic phone calls and you go on a murder spree. Not exactly moral I agree but its the mystery behind the subtle story that compels the player forward. In addition to a heavy 80’s color pallet and a completely disorienting and primal soundtrack rounds out a unique experience. (see the attached video)
Well my story involves me playing this game, under the influence of heavy hitting cold medicine. Combine my complete disorientation with the dissonant music and the fluctuating, border line seizure inducing color changes, I was absolutely out of it. The sounds amplified my confusion, leading me to file this under an experience i like to talk about, but not one i would like to repeat, that being said, Hotline Miami is a very unique game that i recommend,just play it under a proper state of mind.
WARNING GAME IS RATED M for 17 and Up quite graphic
