facade pwnage


Ok, so I was bored one night and decided to show Facade to one of my suitemates who I thought might get a kick out of it. Well I was right -- she was instantly fascinated by the game and completely sucked into it. While watching her play it was so interesting to see how differently she approached the game than how I had played it. The kicker? She easily got Trip and Grace to make up and stay together, a feat I wasn't sure was really even possible. And she enjoyed it! Then it occurred to me that this friend of mine was about to go to grad school to learn how to be a therapist, and I wasn't so surprised that Facade was a fun and relatively easy challenge for her. We talked about the game for awhile and came to the conclusion that it would actually make a good test for aspiring counselors and therapists! Considering I got thrown out both times I attempted Facade, maybe a career in counseling is not the thing for me... ;)

That was what I thought about it after analyzing the situation and the manner in which it is supposed to be played. I mean, what other type of a person, other than a soon-to-be therapist, psychologist, or even someone who is humane, could possibly make that happen?

"Let's just say I was testing the bounds of reality. I was curious to see what would happen. That's all it was: just curiosity." -Jim Morrison, 1969.

Heh. That makes me want to try it out on some of my friends who are majoring in psychology/ planning to become therapists...
let them see if they should change career paths before it's too late!
