Okay, ever since I was about 8 years old I have loved video games. I had this friend who was an only child (You know the kind) who literally had every single video game console and just about any game that she wanted. Plus all of the stuffed animals of the characters from the video games. She also had a million Barbies and a crazy dysfunctional family.
Anyways, I remember going to her house and watching her play video games (she would never let me play) and she was really good at them. Watching the graphics and the ability to be another person for the hour or so that you played, I fell in love.
So, there are a lot of things in life that I love to do, but I will just never be good at them. For example, bowling. I could bowl for hours and bowl a straight 90 each game.
Video games really fall under this category. I love video games and I most definitely fallen into playing all night, but I might just have bad hand eye coordination?
There is this game that a lot of people seem to play. I think it runs a long the lines of WOW seeing as most of the people who play WOW play this game as well. I have never played WOW.
Anyways, my ex boyfriend wanted me to play with him and so now I have it downloaded on my computer. Once every 3 weeks I will turn it on and play it when I am very bored. There just aren’t that many computer games that I feel like getting into.
Which apparently “computer” games are not the same as “video” games. SORRY!
Anyways, there are two big things that really make this game a difficult one to master. One is that this game is not like other games in which whatever player you work with, it will be about the same. In other games, like fighting games or Left 4 Dead, each character has different skills, but the game play is generally about the same no matter which character you choose.
This game anytime you choose a new character, you pretty much have to learn the whole game all over again using this character. You can’t go to the same routes, have the same items and you have new skills. Basically every part of the game is different because you changed characters.
But don’t worry, they only have about 60 different characters to choose from.
The second reason, which I feel is the real reason why I want to kill myself when I play this game, is that you play on a 5 person team. You can play with strangers or create your own team with your friends. You can play against other strangers or robots.
So I play a beginner level against robots with strangers. Which is basically saying you play “Super Easy” level.
Anyways, when it comes to games like this where it’s such a freaking nerdy thing to be playing them, it makes me feel kind of sexy. That may seem weird, but a lot of girls do not support guys to play video games, so the fact that I play them myself I like to imagine that it’s super hot. Just give me this one guys.
The reality of this though is that just playing the game isn’t enough. The fact that I am not good at it is really bothersome for guys and they like to tell me.
Let me elaborate, I get called stupid more times in one video game session (that game or any other) than I have in my entire life. I’ve gotten cussed out more times in that game than in my entire Customer Service career. In fact, I get more insults in one game than I did in my entire high school career. And I was bullied.
Really guys? Are you serious?
I find it slightly embarrassing that the fact that I can’t play video games very well my “entire life is worthless” or that I am “the stupidest person alive”. Which I have gotten in one of those games, except I cleaned up the language.
That’s not ridiculous.
Part of me just wants to yell at them “I’M A GIRL! DID YOU REALLY EXPECT ME TO BE GOOD AT THIS?!” But then there is always that one really nerdy girl who is super good at video games and I can’t elaborate on that girl anymore than that without looking like a jerk. A certain image of that nerdy girl pops in my head. I’m sorry.
This is really just a late night rant on my blog about the fact that people are really mean to me in a video game, but at the end of the day I am a semi attractive girl and I am not a 14-year-old boy with acne who won’t lose his v-card for another 10 years.
Who really won that game? PFF!
