Ok, before you guys are getting perverted thoughts, the title is NOT what it looks like. I'm just gonna tell you what influence the PW games had on me.
For starters, the Phoenix Wright games are games where you're a lawyer.You need to find contradictions in other people's testimonies, find out who committed the murder in every case (every single case is a murder case, for some reason), and prove your client not guilty. There are a lot of inside jokes, funny moments, weird witnesses, and of course, lots and lots of courtroom drama.
Well, I'm kind of addicted. Very addicted. Like, wow. It's my #1 fandom and it'll always be.
So there are a few things the games did to me:
1. I notice EVERYTHING
No, seriously. It's not even fun anymore. Every time I read a book, watch a movie, play a game, and it lacks a little bit of continuity, I sense it. Why? My brain searches for contradictions. Automaticaly. I'm not even kidding.
And because I see those contraditions in the story, I don't like it as much. I have the urge to send a letter to the maker, and say what's wrong with it.
2. It made me start shipping.
I never wrote fanfics or shipped anything in particular before the PW games. It all started with Narumayo. Aka, Phoenix/Maya.
Aaaand it went downhill from there.
I even ship people who're in games/programs/books/movies, when I'm not even in that fandom! I became a massive shipper from this game.
3. I know I'm not going to become a lawyer
I learned that lawyer's have a pretty though job. How much times has Phoenix been assaulted? And how many times did the girl closest to him (not headcanon, he said so himself), been in danger because of Phoenix being in contact with horrible criminals? And most of all, he's kind of broke. Lawyers don't get paid that much, apparently. :/
Well, that's it. I'm sorry for grammatical mistakes, but remember, I'm from the Netherlands.
Thank you for reading!
