I have been and always will be a gamer. My love for games started in Kindergarten for our computer class. It was a really simple class. They didn’t teach us anything fancy. We were taught how to log-in and we could choose to do anything on the Macintosh desktop in front of us. Of course, anything meant choosing from simple math, memorization exercises, card matching and the like. Everything we did on the computer was basic but it was all educational. That was my favorite class back then.
I don’t remember when we got a Nintendo Entertainment System, but I was mesmerized by it. In our neighborhood, we would go biking a lot and one time, there was a garage sale. They were selling games for the NES. I got so excited because games were pricey and I probably only had Super Mario Bros (my ultimate favorite BTW). I ended up getting Pacman, Q*bert, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
My love for games went on from the Nintendo 64, Gameboy, GBC, Game Cube, and the Xbox. Hindi naman halata na Nintendo talaga gusto ko ano?! :p I also had my fair share of PC and online games. Of course, we all fell into the trap of SIMS! Two online games that I will never forget: Neopets and… Ragnarok. Yes, it is true. I think I was more hard core when it came to Neopets though because you could do so much. Ragnarok was just something that I liked to play with my brother, sometimes with friends. I wasn’t too open about me playing Ragnarok in high school because I felt like a noob next to my classmates that were so hard core with their gaming.
Last week, my friend Fonzy invited me to go on his podcast to play some games. Since everyone has been raving about WoW, Dota and LoL, I decided to give it a go. Fonzy insisted what we try Dota 2. So I was like, yeah, okay… I got this. I didn’t see WHY people were so addicted but I wanted to see what the fuss was all about.
Fonzy and Nigel were the spectators while co-noob Enrique aka #1 T.Swift fan and I were playing on the same team. I had played a test game before the show started just to get a feel of the game but Enrique had the surprise of his life when he was told that he was gonna play! Hahaha! I didn’t want to be on the same lane with him because we both might have died right then and there. I am very proud to say that I wasn’t first blood! Hahaha! You’ll find out in the video of our stream who got that award of shame haha!
Our team was doing pretty well when someone-who-must-not-be-named-and-is-banned-from-playing-with-us decided that he had to eat DINNER! I mean, who eats dinner when you have video games?! FORGET THAT. Alas he decided to stay BUT ENDED UP LEAVING US IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GAME. Hence, the frustrated Megan:
I am proud to say though, that even if we didn’t win, AT LEAST I WASN’T FIRST BLOOD. Hahaha! I also realized that I have a special skill. I can get people to BEG for me to kill them on the game.
“I’m here. Kill me.”
“It would be an honor”
Those were the words that were typed right on my screen. Good job, young ones. Good job.
It’s a good thing that I’m caught up in a whole lot of things. Or else I would’ve been caught up in the Dota craze as well. Thank you Fonzy and the rest of the team for guesting me on the show. I can’t wait to play some zombie game next time to hear and see Fonzy scream like a girl. Teehee.
