I am a gamer, always have been and always will be. From the first time I saw a video game I was in love. The lights, sounds, and actions are all exciting and addicting.
Before we continue, I am an old school gamer. In order to play when I was a kid you had to go to an arcade. Kids today have it easy with the gaming systems and online game play. Nothing will ever beat standing next to your friends and trash talking while waiting your turn to play.
My games of choice are shooter, fighter, and driving based. Though like all others of my generation I had a love/hate relationship with Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man.
Then I saw this little beauty and I was in love all over again. This is Hogan’s Alley and the gun was chained to the game. Controllers are wireless now but these, ah these were fun.
The shooter game evolved over the years. I found a new love, called Area 51, which proved very difficult to beat. But I fed it a lot of quarters in the attempt.
Then the shooter game changed for me when I saw this one.
Silent Scope is my new all time favorite. I will own one.
Now I have a Playstation 2 and 3 and working on 4. They all will be in use and are connected to my TV right now. My current addiction is Godfather The Don’s Edition for the PS3. In addition to that I play an online MMORPG game on which I met my wife. Perhaps you’ve heard of it.
Many of my friends play as do my wife and I and I have made many new amazing friends I hope to meet in real life one day.
I say gaming reduces stress among many other things. What say you?
