When I am not obsessing about NASCAR, crocheting like a mad woman, trying to be the world’s best aunt, or reading…sometimes I will game. I have a desktop, a playstation 2 (that I have exactly 3 games for – soon to be 4), and a nintendo ds (in pink). I have gamed on all of them and I tend to prefer my nintendo ds…because I do love the portability factor. I totally suck at the playstation. The games I have? Nascar08 (I SUCK BIGTIME AT THIS GAME), FLATOUT2 (which I play the demolition derby on mostly and I love that…and am OK at that), and a recently purchased copy of NASCAR09 that I haven’t played because frankly? I am afraid of it…granted it didn’t stop me from buying it- but I am intimidated.
I have been eying GUITAR HERO for awhile now. I just couldn’t justify the guitar controller…the bundle was expensive and I worried that I would suck at it and hate it and just waste a bunch of money on something I didn’t like/want/need. Then a wonderful thing happened. They released GuitarHero On Tour for the Nintendo DS…the game isn’t even that pricey and it comes with an add-on appliance. Ohh this was exciting. I still hemmed and hawed about it. I looked at a couple of stores, but they sold out of it nearly as quickly as they got it in. Then I finally found it and bought it right there on the spot. How did I live without this game? I fell in love with it nearly right away. Its quick to learn yet still challenging.
A lifetime ago I got into the Sims. I loved the Sims (I am talking the original Sims). Sometimes? I would tear down houses just to rebuild new ones. Anyway, I would play it sometimes so much that I would “dream” in Sims. Meaning that the people in my dreams? Would have diamonds over their head to indicate their moods. It was really bizarre.
Last night? I dreamed in Guitar Hero. I could hear music and as I did- little blue, yellow, red and green disc shaped things were streaming towards me. It was even worse than when I dreamed in Sims.
As a side note…I am best at playing “All The Small Things” and can sometimes get 99% accuracy. My worst song? Nirvana’s “Breed.”
