Moments that made me question gaming.

   0
I think itís safe to say everyone here loves games. I for one love them with a passion, there is not a day that goes by without me at least thinking about games. But thatís not to say that loving them has always been easy, there have been times when I just had to sit back and evaluate this hobby of ours and see if it was worth continuing down this path. These are the moments that almost made me quit gaming, some of them were confusing, some of them were embarrassing, and some of them scarred me for life. Of course gaming came out on top in the end, but like a skier who broke their leg in an accident, I found it hard to take the plunge and push myself down the mountain again. Once I did I remembered why I love games but those moments still stuck with me. These are the moments that made me question gaming.

Resident Evil: The first zombie.

This was the first time in my life I questioned games, up until this point it had been nothing but kid friendly plumbers and blue hedgehogs. I was going to sleep over at my friendís house and we had decided to rent out a game, after hearing my brothers friends raving about Resident Evil we thought weíd give it a shot. We played trough the game, unaware of the horrible dialogue we were hearing, and all was well..... until we got to the first zombie. That thing scared the hell out of us. We just looked at each other and turned the console off, and we took the game out of ps1 just to be sure it wouldnít get us in our sleep (because in our young minds that made sense).


WHAT IS HAPPENING!?!?

And thatís about it. When a skier breaks his leg he may find it hard to take the plunge and push himself down the mountain again but once he does he remembers why he loved it in the first place. Thankfully none of these moments were enough to make me stop for good and I couldnít be happier that I kept gaming for many reasons (including destructiod).

P.S. Iíve noticed that a lot of my recent blogs have included Resident Evil, Final Fantasy or Metal Gear. Please bear with me as Iím fairly sure this is just a coincidence and they just happened to fit into the topics I chose...... either that or Iím a one trick horse and everything I write will go down because all I ever do is talk about the same games.

About Handyone of us since 1:44 PM on 09.14.2009

Welcome to the blog.... you must be bored. anyway im Handy, I'm a student in Ireland and I'm here to talk about whatever may come into my mind....so not much then.

Lets see... Iíve been playing games pretty much my whole life, since my Commodore back in the day to my ps3 now Iíve been hooked. Actually come to think of it I canít remember a time I wasnít playing games. Canít say I have a favourite genre, I like to try a bit of everything, though I will go to town on a good RPG. Iíll have something to fill in this space as soon as my life becomes interesting.

^^^ Seriously, I wrote that like four years ago and still nothing interesting has happened.



Like everyone else on Destructoid Iím at a loss on what to fill this space with so I guess Iíll just catalogue my greatest hits, if you can call a loose collection of lists and borderline pornographic fanart ďgreatest hitsĒ.
