A little late.

Well I love games, as this is obvious. I prolly spend more then I should on games at that. You know its just hard not to want to go into a video game store. Its even harder to walk out without a game, or two... or three. And yet, there is a shelf with games on it, half of which I have not even played. Because they were games my boyfriend had bought before we got together, and I was already into other games I owned.

Anyways, my boyfriend had bought me Lost Planet not to long ago. I kept forgeting the game existed and I wanted to play it. So I played it a few days ago. Played it for about 2 hours and got bored of it. I felt bad, I was really interested in this game. Maybe soon enough I will go back to it, but I guess I wasn't in the mood for a linear shooter.

So I decided just to try to play the games off the shelf in alphabetical order. Bioshock is the first unplayed game on the shelf. I know, you are thinking, "what kind of gamer I am, wtf is wrong with me?'". I'm not sure, but I think a part of me avoided the game cause its my boyfriend's, ex-girlfriend's game... And it didn't seem to interesting to me at the time.

Nonetheless, I plan on playing this game to the end. I have already played it for a couple hours today, and I really enjoyed what there was... It reminds me of Metroid Prime just a bit. Upgrades to get plasma powers shooting out of your arm, and running around in a large map. But thats really it though. I hope my Bioshocking goes well. When I done Brutal Legend is next in line... But Mario Galaxy 2 comes out soon... And Red Dead Redemption. Well untill then, I guess I'll be playing catchup on good games I've missed.

How'd I get into gaming. Go figure I was only three years old. It was past the NES era and even the SNES had been out for sometime now. But my family was poor and I knew little about anything games. I was only freakin' three years old afterall.

My dad could finally afford an NES so he bought one from a pawn shop one day. He got SUper MArio Bros. 1 ,2 and 3, Duck Hunt, the first Lolo, and Kirby's Adventure. My dad wanted to play SMB3 first, so he showed my brother how to do it. I was blown away watching my dad teach my brother how to play. All I could say after that was gimme, gimme, gimme, I want a turn. I will never forget how amazing SMB3 seemed to me. So I played and played. After that I went on to our other games and beat those ones up too.

I started out with an NES, but thats not where it stopped. My dad later bought an SNES. By then me and my two brothers were heavy into games and begged our mother to buy us an N64. I will never forget how awesome Super MArio 64 was and the Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. After that we begged my mother for a gamecube. By now I was playing video games the most and could beat my brothers hands down at anything.

I got a job. I started to buy my own games and systems from there. My brothers had fallen out of the video game scene and I was the kid no one wanted to play video games with. I bought myself a Wii and soon after an XBox360, future plans are with a PS3 as well. On top of th I haved owned every Nintendo portable system... besides a Virtual Boy.

I don't do online multiplayer, nor do I play games for Multiplayer. I play them for the one player experiences. But if you wanted to come to my house and play some Left4Dead, I wouldn't turn you down. I just much prefer the face to face method of playing multiplayer. I ain't a competitive person so your gamer score doesn't mean a dime to me.

But here is my gamer tag widget anyways, cause I think its really cute!
