Ideas for magic in video games 1
I've decided to begin writing out my ideas for somethings I wish there were in video games.
Today I'll begin with a little of my ideas for games involving the practice of magic.
Magic in games is unfortunately boring most of the time, scarcely different from using other types of weapons, and altogether too easy and unmysterious.
I want magic in a game to be mysterious and quite spooky.  The average player would have almost no ability to use it because they haven't taken the time to learn how, and it wouldn’t be at all obvious or easy to even get started.  Also because making mistakes would be dangerous, as the supernatural power of the character is so meagre that they would have to utilize other supernatural agents to achieve much, and such agents have minds of their own.
So, I haven’t worked out how one would start to practice magic, but here are some ideas for after the initial learning had been done:

no strawberries today.
i made my way through the rows of the fruit section.  a large row full of bananas, one with apples, then the peppers and carrots.  the whole bustling area was surrounded on both sides with the vegetables that occasionally get an overhead spray of water mist.
i was interested in strawberries today, and i could see stacks of clear plastic containers filled with red as i approached.  i found a box full of nice large sized berries.  as usual, i turned it over to check the bottom for spoilage.
it's a good thing i did, because this box had quite a lot of mush on the bottom, with a small amount of mould!  i checked another and found the same thing.  i soon discovered the whole lot was quite spoiled.
i winced, looking around for something else to get instead.  then i saw jared, the store manager, walking through some of the crowd.
"hey, jared!" he turned and looked about, eventually spotting me.
"fine day, mister bauer," he approached, smiling.
"it is," i loo
