Oh video games, how I miss thee. I’m going on about a week now with no video gaming of any kind to speak of. This is partly from just being busy with regular old life things, but also because my wife and I went to Florida over the weekend for a nice break with some old friends. While the trip was awesome, I didn’t get to play any video games, so that was just a bit bogus.
So, now that I’m going through my withdrawals and the hallucinations are starting to settle in, I’ve been reminding myself how awesome it is to “go into the light” so to speak, and play video games until it’s completely unhealthy to do so. That’s right, I’m craving a mega gaming binge. Really, while I’ve had a few binges in recent months, it’s been a long time since I’ve been truly obsessed with a game. I think the last one for me was sadly, Halo Wars. I played the game every single night for months without stopping. The funny thing is, it wasn’t even that good of a game.
So what about you guys? With Red Dead Redemption, 3D Dot Game Heroes, Alan Wake and Super Mario Galaxy 2 dropping on us this week, it seems like the time is ripe for more gaming obsessions to begin anew. What was your last or most recent one? Go!
Also, I leave you all with a gchat conversation Mitch and I had about Red Dead Redemption today. After the jump.
Mitch: I have a riddle for you
Mitch: what is red, dead, and in my glove compartment?
Eddy: : (
Eddy: a person?
Eddy: dont say

Eddy: : (
Eddy: mama nooooo
Mitch: that is so sad
Eddy: IM SORRY MA-MA

Mitch: I NEVER MENT TO MAKE YOU CRY
Eddy: I NEVER MEANT TO MAKE YOU CRY
Mitch: BUT TONIGHT
Eddy: BUT TONIGHT
Eddy: IM CLEANING OUT MY GLOVE BOX
Mitch: IM CLEANING OUT MAH CLOSET
Yes, this is how intelligent we are.
