About
Me? Me equals someone who has been playing since I was a kid. I grew up with Sonic and Mario as my best friends. Though they didn't really get along at the time but they were my tireless companions. Growing up there were lots of things changing for the better and worse but gaming was always the constant, never fading or failing me. There were a lot of things that I learned from gaming and lots of things I lost but after everything I would not be the same person without it. Gaming has touched me in such a way that I hope to touch people in the same way... I mean, er with my words... touching people with my words. Gaming has made a giant contribution to my life and made me who I am as a person and I hope to repay it with my words... or my mouth if it's into that.

I just starting using my PS2 again. I was planning to play Xenosaga in order to do a review of the game someone requested of me. Though setting it up and watching the start-up with the little floating lights making circles made me feel nostalgic. I wondered if I would feel this way about the Xbox 360 or the Wii five or six years later. Will I have the same kind of feeling I have for this PS2 as I do to the newer consoles? I have no clue. I could possibly answer that in five to six years but where does the nostalgia for these things come from? Is it the games we play, the people we play with, the experience we have or is it because we were young and this was our first chance at this kind of medium? Is that why its memorable?

For me I've always been playing. It's just something that I've always done. I've never known a life without gaming. It's as much a part of me as my lungs and heart. So I've never really had a chance to understand what it would be like without it. It's always been there. You know never really appreciate something till its gone. Hypothetically speaking what what you say if games were banned tomorrow? How would you feel and what would that do to your everyday life?


If you can't see your life without these objects then why do we have love for these objects? Why are they so important to most of us? Do we still see ourselves playing these games way into our 60's?
