It’s on pre-order…
A lot of people don’t understand my love for video games. They don’t get why I drop $60 on a disk that I’ll probably only play once. They don’t get why or how I can sit in my bed or at my computer for hours without eating, sleeping, or going out for social interaction. They don’t understand why I love games with 8-bit graphics and super hard puzzles and offensive online players that talk shit and call you horrible names when you line that reticle up just right and blast one straight through their skulls and their egos.
I guess we had lunch together because he knows that once he cracks open that Dead Space 2 and pops it in his PS3 I won’t hear from him for like 3 days…lol. Love that guy.
Dead Space 2 drops today! Go run out and get your copy, but please tell your girlfriend/boyfriend/friends/family/significant other where you’ll be over the next few days and why you won’t be answering their phone calls.
…when the first thing you get after receiving your refund check is to pre-order Halo Reach.
Penn and Teller tell it like it really is. Video games don’t promote violence in average teenagers. And a kid shoots a gun…
I was reading a blog entry today from this awesome blog I recently discovered called Old Grandma Hardcore which is a collection of videos, rants, and experiences shared with the awesome “Grandma”. I was reading an entry from back in March when I read something that was directly quoted from Grandma and I’ve got to say that it’s the smartest thing I have ever heard about these people who insist that gaming is bad.
They think video games are for kids. And if video games are only for kids, then they should be made for kids. And if video games are made for kids, they shouldn’t have any violence or vulgarity. So, if video games contain violence or vulgarity, they’re bad. Because of kids.
I have to say that I completely agree and it’s the simplest explanation of what’s really going on in the minds of these people that say video games are too violent for children. They don’t get the fact that video games are not just for kids anymore…honestly they never really were just for children! The average gamer is around 32 or so if I’m remembering my stats correctly and I’d have to say that I’m pretty sure they’re old enough to decide what’s too violent for themselves and what’s not.
This ongoing battle on the morals of gaming can go on forever unless the critics pick up a game and seriously play it. Politicians, judges, the freakin’ President all need to sit down and play Halo and follow the story, play Final Fantasy and follow the story, play anything and just see why gamers love their games.
Anywho…check out the blog. I’m going to end this rant early because I can already feel another one coming on.
