If it is a lunatic we'll name it after you.



  Today I'd like to talk about the concept of home towns.

  In videogames, I mean. In comparison to other places, they're usually donned in greenery and nature. And the music is all slow and peaceful.

  Let's take Masara Town / Pallet Town for example.

  Why are they portrayed like that. What the hell. Did anyone grow up in such nice places? I didn't.

  It was the UK. Grungy and covered in crime, or whatever. But if I were to put it into a videogame sorta' perspective, it'd be sorta' like Masara Town.

  Nostalgia for something that never existed. Travel does weird things to my head.

  The thought of moving on drives me nuts.
