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.
