Being an avid gamer since that wonderous Xmas morning when I received my Atari 2600, I have never been so addicted to a game as I currently am with
Halo. Well there was that time in college with the first Zelda
I've always been an RPG, puzzle, & racing game kinda girl and never tried a FPS. I'd heard so much talk about COD I borrowed it from my cousin.
After 10 minutes, I had a terrible headache and my review of the game was "Meh." An xbox friend convinced me to try Halo and I did like the sound of
a Sci-Fi aspect so I gave it a try. That was three weeks ago and I'm already a Commander Grade 3 LOL!! I still totally suck but I can not stop
playing this game.
In addition I've bought a T-Shirt, the soundtrack (it rocks!), strategy guide, a novel, console skin, signed up for Bungie Pro, and purchased a Lego
figurine set. Considering spending a rediculous amount of $45 for a flaming helmet - as if I need another target on my head.
I have no idea what has made me so addicted to this game. I didn't even play FallOut this much. Maybe it's the daily challenges or how in depth game
is with making videos, pictures and the countless variations of gameplay available. Honestly, for me, it's also how absolutely terrible I am at this
game and I love a good challenge.
All I know is the dishes are stacking up, my hair is sticking straight up and the family knows to refer to me as 'Noble 6' to get my attention. I
run around the house saying "Mythic ON" I'm female & an ancient relic at that (hence the Atari reference) and apparently this is unusual
in the FPS realm. This type of addiction is exactly why I never started playing WoW.
Summer is coming and I'm sure this addiction will pass. I don't need an intervention, I can stop whenever I want. Maybe. What game captured
your attention and dug it's electronic claws into your brain?
