With the beginning of the spring semester comes the renewed fervor of students to do well in school. Students make resolutions to get better grades, to study more, and to not fall asleep in class. Personally, my resolution is to stop playing certain videogames during boring lectures.
“But, Smimming!” you say, “Videogames!” And for the most part, I agree with you. However, there is one genre of videogames that I have sworn to never play again during school: psychological horror games, such as Doki Doki Literature Club.


For those of you who are unfamiliar with Doki Doki Literature Club, it’s a psychological horror game that I got free on Steam, which is why I started playing it during class. Although the game itself warned me of the content, I was skeptical. After all, I enjoy some horror TV shows, and honestly…could a game featuring cute anime girls really be that bad?

Yes. The answer is yes.

The first part of the game isn’t so bad. It has all the essential ingredients of a good dating sim: cute girls, cute poems, and just the right amount of romantic drama.

In fact, during my first play through, I didn’t even understand what the horror hype was. This game wasn’t even remotely disturbi—

Ummm…wat? Okay, I must have done something wrong, uhmmm…

Ha, nice try game. I saved before I made my choice. Now all I need to do is reload my saved game from the main menu and…


Wut.

Ummmmmmmmmmm…

So, it turns out that the second play through of the game is very different from the first, even if you had a saved game.

Sayori is gone and the other characters are kinda…uhmm…how do I put it…

…disturbing. Terrifying. Let me just say that I was not ready for this stuff to happen. And need I remind you, I was playing this in class. There was no way I could yell out, “OH SWEET JEEBUS!!!” whenever something like this suddenly appeared on my screen:

However, even though my hair was standing on end, I had to keep going…I had to find out what on earth was happening with my game.

(I think I broke it)

After spending a ridiculously long amount of time with Yuri’s corpse, I finally reached the end of the game, where I got stuck with Monika. Just Monika.

Just self-aware Monika.

At this point, I couldn’t figure out how to make Monika go away, so I quit the game, but she was still there, so I burned my hard drive, but she was still there, haunting me in my dreams just Monika just Monika just Monika just Monika just Monika

J U S T M O N I K A

Anyways, that’s why I’ve decided not to play psychological horror games at school anymore.
