Holy fuck. I have been up a long time. I swear, every time I've had to take someone to the airport since starting here, I've had to get up at the witching hour to take someone to the airport. This time, I've been up since three. In just a few hours, it'll be my birthday. So for this edition, I'm gonna chat with you guys about birthdays and games.
Many moons ago I woke up as a young lad to unwrap a large box. Within that box was a Super Nintendo bundles with Yoshi's Island. Needless to say, I was the most hype little kid since that one child in the YouTube video where he goes ape shit over an N64.
Since then, many of the birthday requests of my youth were game oriented. I received such gems such as Croc 2 for the Playstation to one of the worst games of all time ever: Superman 64. I remember playing Spiderman on the Gamecube with my new Wavebird controller. That thing is still pretty great, in my opinion.
Since I was so young when I started gaming, birthdays and Christmas were the main times where I received a new game or two. I would wait in anticipation for weeks to play games like Banjo Twooie (or however the hell you spell that) and Timesplitters 2. They were always a special time where I received many games that still play today.
Now I'm in my 20's and preparing to go to grad school and won't be receiving any games. Though I'll always have those nice memories of being a kid unwrapping some cool new games.
Though I do have a new laptop on the way so I can finally play Civ V.
