Press Start

“Wow. That looks cool.” My Dad said, giving the TV screen a half glance. I was four years old, living with my Dad in our blue and white trailer. If I wasn’t there, I was at my grandma’s. Either place I visited, I played video games.

At home, it was the Super Nintendo, at my Grandma’s, it was the Sega Genesis. At the time, I was playing an arcade port of a small, now cult classic, game called Primal Rage. Both my Dad and I could appreciate a game where you play as dinosaurs that beat the shit out of each other.

Since then, I’ve continued to play video games almost daily. Though my Dad never really played video games, he still seems to admire them, and he helps my little brother build his game collection via internet deals and yard sales.

Games are a part of my life, and instead of getting over them and moving onto more productive things, I’ve decided it was time I start validating my lifestyle and do the trendy thing by writing a blog. As you might have noticed, the page is currently under development, and is pretty bleak. I’ll try to do something about it. Until then, stay tuned.

And who knows? It could rock. Could suck ass.

Coming up I’ll be blogging about my deaths adventures in the world of Dark Souls, as well as a Personal Bests post, which chronicles my favorite games in various categories.
