A Return to Gaming Through an Unusual Path (For Me That Is...)

Posted by chibiodgiek18 (7 posts) -

So I noticed lately that I hadn't been gaming as much as I would like, and I couldn't figure out why. I would come home from work, ready to start up my 360 or DSi for some much needed game time, and then I would just end up looking at the screen for a few minutes, turning it off, and getting on the computer or something. So while at my aunts yesterday I decided to borrow Gears of War 1. Let me describe my history with the game:

As a younger gamer I played gears when it was first released and for some reson hated it. I talked it down at school and just had a general disinterest in the craze. Later, when Gears 2 was released, my uncle invited me over to play together. We spent awhile messing around on Xbox live and playing The Horde, when I realized that Gears 2 was pretty fun with a friend, maybe I just didn't give it a chance.

So back to the real story, I DID give it a chance, and I ended up playing until 3am last night and I've been playing a couple hours this morning too! I love it and I don't know if I was too young to appreciate it at first or if my tastes in gaming have changed as I grew older. But anyways, I'm about to get back in there and play some more. Now if only this gaming enlightenment can happen on my DSi as well. :]
