My Gaming Story [Also my first blog, YAY!]
// Submitted @ 6:29 PM on 06.02.2013
I probably started loving video games since I was 4. I remember one of my first games being a 3D Frogger game titled (Creatively) Frogger, Crash Bandicoot, A Rugrats game (Forgot the title), And Megaman Legends 2. First game I beat was actually a Blues Clues Game. Once the PS2 came out I played a lot of games. My Top 3 PS2 games had to be Ratchet & Clank, Sly Cooper, and Devil May Cry 1 and 3. I played games mainly because I didn't really have too many friends, considering, at the time, not many kids lived in my neighborhood and I was homeschooled. Also there was A lot of arguing in my household due to some tough times.
The first next-gen console was a Xbox 360, I was 14 at the time. I didn't get the 360 when it first came out, I got it around 2009. I wanted to get a PS3 but I decided that I'd rather have a 360 because my best friend had one. We'd played together for hours until a new kid, who was two years younger than me, moved two houses away from me, and lived on the same street. However, unlike my best friend, our friendship didn't last. The reason being is that he only came over because of my games. Unlike his other friends who actually told him "no" when it came to him playing video games I didn't. Mainly because he said things, that turned out not to be true, made me feel sorry him and I let him played anything he want. Of course, he only wanted to play Left 4 Dead 2. I later told him I was bored of only playing L4D2 and he stopped coming over. Took me awhile, but I realized why he always wanted to go back inside when we went outside, and why he was a bit annoyed at me a week after I said that. Now I'm a proud [HEAVY SARCASM] member of the glorious PC master race!
