ahaha, I wonder how old was him at the end. He just wanted to die!SunJian wrote:Mind as well share with you one of my most treasured memories of my video gaming years. And it's all about RTK7!
It all happened about 10 years ago. I had already played a game where I had unified the land as Pei Yuanshao so, with a friend of mine, we decided to play a two-player game (using the code) to give ourselves a challenge and see how the game would evolve. My friend chose to play as Cheng Bing (under Shi Xie, I think) and I decided to play Lu Yi (under Liu Yan). Liu Yan and Shi Xie didn't do much at first and eventually, my friend decided to leave Shi Xie and join with the Lius as well. When Liu Yan died, and we were startiing to become some pretty decent generals, having studied a lot and bought a few items, Liu Zhang became the new liege.
Liu Zhang sent us both away from the front lines doing nothing particular, whatever we offered to do. In the meantime, we were watching Liu Zhang slowly getting destroyed due to his poor management. We were sometimes sent to the frontlines, but then back away from them a month later!!! This was getting so frustrating! Liu Zhang eventually died, but I forgot how. Might have been captured and executed, but I'm not sure. He was replaced with his son, Liu Xun.
Liu Xun started off beautifully, taking off away from the front lines again, and leading a southern campaign by himself 2 months after the start of his reign. He was captured and immediately executed. The future was looking bleak for our kingdom at this point, and Pang Yi was chosen as the next ruler.
And WHAM!!! Immediately, Pang Yi sends us to the front lines, assigns soldiers, makes us drill our troops and starts launching military campaigns against our neighbours. What a success! He was doing EVERYTHING that my friend and I were thinking he should do. Literally. With Cheng Bing and Lu Yi being player-controlled characters, and lots of other talent still enlisted with him, Pang Yi kept it up, winning again and again against the forces of Wei and Wu until, eventually, only a handful cities remained to be conquered!
And then, the most terrible thing happened: Pang Yi passed away.
And we both said "No!". We reset the game back to a previous save point and kept saving the game every month, resetting every time he would die, all so that he could see with his own eyes the whole of the land unified under him. And so he DID!
What a thrilling game! Definitely one of my most cherished memories of my youth, and a fun story to tell for fans of the series.
