I was able to buy a PS3 for X-mas because I was given some unexpected cash. I really love that machine. I only own five games so far, but i’ve played a lot of them through Gamefly and rentals through the local video store. I am so bummed out that those are disappearing but that is another rant.
I currently have Portla 3, Reckoning, and Skyrim from Gamefly. I really love Portal 2, but i’ll probably return it soon because it makes me motion sick. I’m playing it on a 19 inch tv but still I feel like i’m going to vomit after about an hour or so. It takes a while for the sickness to go away. I’d like to beat it, but I can’t say it’s worth the misery.
I really like Reckoning and Skrim. I’ve always enjoyed RPGs, and I love how big and complicated these games are. I probably prefer Reckoning because it is easier. Trying to figure out what to do in Skyrim can be a bit tedious. I’m currently playing Reckoning as a pure warrior but I want to create a battle mage next. I like mixing magic and might.
I haven’t been up to date with games in a long time. My last console system was an NES. When I bought my iPod touch in 2009, I started buying game apps. Some of those were really fun, and it made the gaming bug bite me again. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to play new games because the controllers were so different, but I’ve managed. I’ll never be a gaming expert, but I do pretty well. I can beat some games. Some are beyond my ability. I’m fine with that.
Of course, I tend to get annoyed the the sexism of some of the gaming shit. The idea that I can’t enjoy games because I have a pussy amuses me. When people assume my console belongs to my boyfriend, I tend to get pissed. I know more men and boys play games, but for fucks sake, wake up. Just because something is male dominated doesn’t mean that women are not involved and interested. Gender stereotypes annoy me and I hate when they are thrown in my face in strange ways.
