Its 01:12 in the morning and I'm bored , so I'm writing this as a question to anybody and everybody , even though like 2 people will read this.

The other day I was sitting on the couch of my living room playing Cave Story on wii and my dad walked in and said " Why do you even like gaming"
I paused for about 10 seconds then said "It's fun and I dont have to be around people".
He stared at me for what felt like an eternity then left.

I felt my answer was wrong though, I spent many an hour infront of a tv with a couple of other friends playing Perfect Dark , Goldeneye and mario kart when I played it on a regular basis. It's not that I don't have to be social it's that It's an escape from people . You dont have to listen to people going on about how they just broke up with there girlfriend or there grandads having catarac surgery also I dont have to cater to other people , the food and the drink is all mine and if you're asking" has he allways been this socially retarded" , yes actually since I was about 9 , I wasnt the cool kid who'd go out and play football ( I cant play sports for the life of me ) or go out and drink with the big boys.I would stay in my house and play through Ocarina of Time for the fifteenth time .

So now it goes out to you , why do you game , or you could just tell me that I've spelt something wrong or tell me that I'm an angry bastard .
