My name is BoneyCork. That's not my real name. My real name is Dan, but that doesn't make a very good username so I changed it. Unlike those of you that don't live in China, I live in China. I get paid to teach children English even though I don't really know it myself, then use that money to buy video games. If I have the time, I play them too.
I got into gaming when my parents first bought me a Commodore 64. I don't fondly remember my childhood gaming days, because I had no idea what I was doing and usually bought stuff baxed on the box art. You'll be surprised how many shitty games had great box art...very few. I was just the loser who ended up buying them.
When you're lying in bed feeling sick, nothing beats a nice passve video game to raise your spirits. It's traditional for me to bust out Pokemon and carry on from one of my various savegames. It's simple, yet addictive, and time passes much more quickly. I was thinking about playing Littlebigplanet, but the psp version was pretty meh and the big TV for the PS3 started giving me a headache.
Any other games people recommend for when you feel like shit?
