Prinny: Can I Really be the Hero? – Ain’t No Picnic

October 15, 2009

You gotta be nuts to play through Prinny: Can I Really be the Hero?. Well, nuts or an exceptionally gifted mutant, someone like that kid from X-Men 2 who can change channels by blinking. Prinny is only for masochistic sadists. It is one of the most difficult, infuriating games I’ve had the sometimes-pleasure to suffer through. Before Prinny, I never said aloud, while playing, “I don’t like this game.” Yet I continued to play, out of some misguided sense of pride, like if I quit I would dishonor my family or the game would furrow its Prinny brows and sneer at me.
