So being a longtime lurker here are dtoid, I pretty came to PAX not knowing a single one of you very nice people. At first, when I did introduce myself to someone, I ended up just asking the same standard questions that I'd ask anybody for the first time. Being that this was a gaming community, I decided that this was unacceptable. I should have a more relevant gaming related icebreaker to get the conversation started. It actually worked out pretty well, and definitely resulted in more memorable conversations with my fellow community members.
So, I've decided to pose this question here, so that everyone would have a chance to answer:
As a gamer, what are you ashamed of? You answer could be liking a game that is generally considered crappy, or even neglecting a game that the community thinks highly of. Or perhaps, you secretly play Farmville in your spare time.......
To get you started, I'll admit my faux pas.
I own both Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, and have not played either of them......
I have a feeling that it's not going to be any good, but I'm probably going anyways.
It's being held at the Direct Energy Centre in T.O. if you didn't already know.
Anyone else from the Dtoid army going this weekend?
I actually spend more time reading about video games than I do playing them.
It's kinda weird. When I see a game that looks really good, I'll get excited and run out and buy/preorder it. For some of the older games I may have missed, I'll even scour the area looking for it, and if that's going nowhere, I'll try to get it online.
After I pick it up, I'll rush home like an impatient 10 year old, and then..........play for 5 min, and then forget about it.
So many lost titles....
Devil May Cry 3
Zelda: Wind Waker
Super Paper Mario
Elder Scrolls: Oblivion (in my defense, I did play for 50 hours)
Metroid Prime 2 (I should finish it before Metroid Prime 3 is released.)
and many others that time have just forgotten.
Maybe one day, I'll get back to my senses and start playing games again... Till that day, I'll read from the sidelines.
