Video Games

March 10, 2010

I love video games. My all time favorite video game is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. If that were the only game left on Earth, I think I would be completely content because it’s just that amazing. I remember when I first got my N64. It was the game that my sisters and I played together. Margaret would play the actual game (it was her game, after all), Allison would read all the narrations (The Narrator), and I would tell Margie were to go (The Navigator) and play some of the side quests (like getting the bigger quiver and planting magic beans to get heart pieces). The first time we ran through the game, my sister just couldn’t beat the boss of the Shadow Temple, Bongo Bongo. It was so frustrating for her. She tried a gazillion times, but she kept dying (I felt sorry for those poor fairies she used). She ended up putting the game down and didn’t pick it back up for about a month. Allison and I finally got her to play it again, and (to our pleasant surprise) she beat it on her first try (no fairies were sacrificed this time either). It was a magical moment. Feeling empowered once more we finally finished the game. I love playing Zelda with my sisters.

I think what I like most about video games are the story lines. I am completely content watching someone else play the game as long as I don’t miss out on any of the action. Recently, my friend Sam beat my newest game (on my brand new Xbox, thank you very much) Batman: Arkham Asylum. I have added it to my Awesome Game List. It’s so cool! All of the Batman bad guys are mentioned (you even fight some of them) as you try to rescue Arkham from the maniacal grip of the Joker. Now I really want to read the Arkham Asylum comic.

Confession: I play World of Warcraft. I love it. I can’t get enough of it. Isn’t that how it is for everyone? As of this very moment, I am a level 60 Night Elf Hunter with a Snow Leopard named Scooter (refer to the picture below).

I started playing in late August 2009, and I’ve been trapped ever since. My friend Knowles “recruited” me, so when we played together, we got triple experience for the first three months. It was so much fun. I love playing with him, because he knows so much more about the game than I do. Plus it’s not as much fun to play when you don’t have anyone to talk to. He has a Human Priest (level 61 right now), and we used to quest and run dungeons together. My current goal is to reach level 80 before Cataclysm comes out (the expansion set to come out in November). I think I have a pretty good chance of making my quota. My friend always makes fun of me for playing it, but I don’t care. It doesn’t consume my life, and it doesn’t come between me and studying for exams. I have complete control over how much I play it. Don’t you worry.
