Latest Obsessh: Computer Games

Ugh. Not being consistent. Now tell me how am I going to be a writer? I can’t even write blogs.

I’m back again! Ever since I got back for the holidays I totally sweared off the internet and movies. Total time spent online for one week might as well be one hour. But I’m back! Because suddenly I’m missing the action in cyberspace =P

For the past one week or so, I’ve been obsessed about finding computer games to play. Something just triggered the gamer in me that’s been dormant for the longest time. And also I remember how engrossed I got with computer games when I was in school.

I guess the biggest misconception is that girls do not play games, or do not like games, or that all games are about shooting and killing. Well that’s totally bull because I LOVE playing games—first person shooter or not. And I know quite a few of my girl friends who are also game junkies.

The key to game playing is searching for a suitable game for you. Currently I’m playing the Sims3 which is, hands down the most girl-friendly game ever invented. I mean, once you play it, you’ll get totally hooked. I played the Sims and the Sims 2. But I think the latest sims is the best. My mom calls me crazy kid for spending the whole day playing that thing.

For those who are unfamiliar with the Sims, it’s a people simulator that lets you control people in the game. They live however you want them to live. The best part is that it’s an open ended game, which means that there are no particular storyline to the game. It is what you make it to be. In the game, you can make your sim person be gay, then adopt 3 children and become a politician. You might see a ghost, be a celebrity, or a chef. You can also control the people around your sim if controlling a family isn’t enough. You can design their homes, and buy things for their home. Make them work to support their family, or leave them in the streets and see how they fare.

I used to torture my sims, burn them or starve them to see what would happen. And like duh, they died. Screenshots below:

Another game I highly recommend is Batman Arkham Asylum. I know, what? Batman? I was really skeptical at first but decided to play anyway. Of course, my brother left the chair empty with the game on screen and sound blaring through the speakers, and I couldn’t resist. I was kinda amazed with the advances in graphics of the game. Maneuvering is smooth and the graphic is seamless. But of course, considering the last time I really played was in 2005. Crikey.

The next game on my imaginary games wish list is Dragon age: Origins. It’s an RPG genre game, and there’s magic involved in the storyline so it’s ganna be goood. Gamespot.com gave that game a 9.4 rating which is the highest rating of pc games.

That reminds me. All the games above are only pc games, and doesn’t include other game consoles. I used to play Final Fantasy on PS2 back in 2006, when it was Final Fantasy 12, and that was one of my favorite game ever. Final Fantasy 13 will be released soon but they decided to release it only for PS3. That’s a HUGE bummer but I’ll live. Next year I’m ganna get myself a PS3. We’ll see how it goes. Soo many things, soo little money!!
