Oh what a sweet thread...
Klonoa is a lot to me. Klonoa 2, especially.
It's a game that I can go back and play over and over and over, and no matter how depressed, angry, or upset I am, it always pulls me back into this inescapable bliss and it never fails to make me happy again. And that's something I need quite often.
I think it is to my teen years what Zelda was to my childhood years, which is incredibly special in a way I can't really express. I will literally never get tired of talking about it, it's world, it's characters, etc, and I can't every stay angry when I think about it.
It also gave me the characters that I hold so dear now. My whole life now revolves around these characters and the stories I'm trying to tell with them, but they used to just be dumb Klonoa fan characters. They're all grown up now and have nothing to do with the series anymore (something I'm glad of), but they still wouldn't exist without it and I'm not ashamed to admit the game inspired me that much.
I owe a lot to Klonoa and it has a lot of sentimental value to me.
