I had to arse myself to plan, or I would be sitting on the computer all day taking up my parent's house and breathing their air. I think they are getting sick of me sitting around doing nothing but talking all day, so they usually become less naggy if they see me going to and from college, so. It's worth it!
I went through a few years of video gaming less and less, mainly because I am a creature of habit, and all my life I stuck to the same video games over and over and didn't branch out to other companies or series. But now that most of the series I love are going down the drain (Tomb Raider, Spyro, Sonic the Hedgehog) I've decided to move on, and I am not looking back in the least.
I am going to check out Skyrim. I hear a lot of people talking about it, but I don't even know what that is. I always keep forgetting to check that out.
Having a good plan is a great thing. I'm still kind of wondering where I want to go in the long-term myself, but I can't be bothered to really plan.
I wish I could say I branched out in video games, but tbh I haven't even picked up that many new ones this year. Either I've been too broke, didn't have the system for the games I wanted to try (didn't have a next-gen system until like last month), or now that I do have a 360, I can't decide what I want to play. >_<
Lately I've been playing Skyrim on and off, and that's been interesting.
I'm glad for that. I am doing much better as well. Been schooling harder than before, mainly on languages. I finally figured out what I am doing, I had to change my mind a couple of times, but thankfully I have my ass firmly planted somewhere now.
Lately I have been obsessed with the game Haunting Ground. Found that I have moved away from Sonic and into the Horror/Survival stuff.
I really hated the control scheme. Sonic couldn't seem to stop running, and he couldn't go anywhere other than left, right, and in front of him. I hated that game. Absolutely abhor it.
That sounds like you had a nice childhood. I was rather lonely, but I like it now. I can handle loneliness a lot better now than I used to and that isn't always a bad thing.
Ironically, I was playing Castlevania Curse of Darkness today. xD And yeah... I know. My grandfather used to play all kinds of games that had kind of satanic stuff in them, suddenly he can't stand to hear the word '****'. It's weird. xD
I watched a bit of Sonic and the Secret Rings, it was okay. I want to say I tried it a bit but the control scheme was really weird.
Really? That's a shame. :( Growing up with the military, I guess I've always had kids my age around. Guess I was lucky.
I still find it weird when my stepdad mentions playing video games that aren't sports games. Like apparently he used to play Castlevania and Zelda and I was like "wait what?" because all I ever see him play are his sports games. :p
Have you played the semi-new Sonic games? Like Sonic and the Secret Rings and Sonic and the Black Knight? Those are the main two games I think of when I think of 3D games that don't allow you to go anywhere.
Actually most of them are elderly people or in their 30's. That's the sad thing, I have never really lived around anyone my age.
Yep. My grandfather played it and loved it. He was in his 50's or 60's when he played it. I was young, but he still played it and got me into it. He played Tomb Raider too... I liked that even better.
I can see that. I guess I just dislike WHAT they are doing. I'd rather be playing another kind of game. Something more dangerous and frightening.
