Ever happen to you?

Posted: December 15, 2010 in ALL ABOUT ME

So…….I have been playing video games my whole fucking life.  I am 30 years old.  We people in our 30’s live in a very unique generation because of video games.  I cannot for the life of me see my father when he was 30 years old playing ANYTHING remotely close to a video game.  Even if my dad grew up in a time when there were the video games that we have today.

But then again, I guess if he grew up at a young age with video games as a form of entertainment, then he would be just fucking like me.

He played “kick the can”………….KICK THE FUCKING CAN.  At the respective age as when my father was playing kick the can, I was most likely playing the original Nintendo.  Anytime I died in any game, I would blame someone in the room for the cause of my accidental death.  If someone was talking; and I died in the game, then I would  yell at that person.  I would let them know that becuase they were talking, it lead to my untimely death in the video game.

I guess I got so pissed off when I died, because there would always be at least three people in the room.  This meant if I died, I had to give the controller to the next person who was waiting to play.  We always shared in my household.  I fucking hated sharing, but nonetheless followed the rules.  The only way I could release my frustrations with having to take turns playing video games, was yelling at someone when I died.

Have you ever played through an entire video game over the course of a few weeks while you were drunk around 90 percent of the time that you played it?  I have……….I remember being drunk most of the time when I played Halo 2.  I don’t remember too much about the plot of that game.  I do remember being entertained by most of the levels at the time; but upon completing each level, I did not store any of it in my long term memory storage facility.  I also remember being consciously aware of my drunkenness during my sessions of playing through it. Don’t judge, but I was 24 and drinking large quantities of hard liquor every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.  Summers were worse.  I guess I was just bored.

I bet I could play Halo 2 all over again and feel like its a game that I never played before.

Imagine reading an entire book only during times of inebriation…….. Seriously, you should consider doing this, and I am not even fucking around.

Find a book that seems decent.  Read one page any time you are intoxicated.  Bookmark it.  Read the next page the next time you are drunk.  Never reread a previous page.  Over the course of a few years or decades you will complete this book.   Then read through it like a regular book when you are not drunk.  This might be the ultimate experiment.  Any takers? No?  OK, I am going to do it then……might take me a while though.  I don’t drink as much these days.  But maybe if I win the lottery I would take up drinking again.  This would result in a faster completed experiment.

 

This is what Andrew Michaels is doing now……..

P.S.    Glee seems to be all the rage these days.  I bet that my site will get more traffic now that I mentioned it.  I will never watch Glee. But if it gets me traffic I will take it.  Are there any shirtless or naked pictures of Glee male cast members?  I know that makes me sound gay (I am not), but it will bring even more traffic to my site, and I will take that as well.

    I can just picture you as a kid screaming at your brothers when you died. He he! Some things never change! Did you ever jump in real life when your character was supposed to jump? That’s how my dad plays video games (and he’s from a younger generation than kick the can). But yeah, he plays Wii with my younger sister. I can’t picture him continuing to play into old age though. But Tim probably will… Sorry I just don’t get the video game obsession with guys!

  2. I have been known to duck from time to time in real life, but jumping? That’s pretty fucking intense.

    And I just don’t get how you don’t get the video game obsession with guys…….

    On the flipside……..I don’t get the obsession with shoes, jewelry, purses, and other boring things. You show me some really nice jewelry and I would be like “WOW…………that’s nice”.
    (But I have no idea, I just know it’s what women like to hear)
