It is disgusting that as I grow older, I get more and more intruiged by all the fancy gaming consoles.
I used to have the classic Nintendo console that had game cartridges (complete with very pixelated graphics and cheesey beeping “music”) and then the SEGA Saturn. But other than playing Street Fighter and Sonic endlessly until I got blisters on both my thumbs, I didn’t really care much for it.
I was also never interested in handheld consoles. I mean, on large TV the graphics already like shit, are you sure you want a tiny black/white screen just because it’s portable??
Now technology has advanced by leaps and bounds, and all these fancy gaming gadgets are getting oh-so-tempting. I had literally kicked up a storm just to get my DS Lite, and sad to say, it’s really my best friend at times.
But now as my tummy threatens to grow into gargantuan proportions, I am forced to neglect my DS Lite because I am somehow unable to play on it properly unless I lie down on my tummy. If I play sitting up, I sure die within 15 minutes. Which is super frustrating, if you can emphatise.
So… now I gian the Wii. Yes, I am much slower at picking up the hype when it comes to gaming. But truth be told, I’d much rather NOT pick up on the hype at all.
Gian-ing is a very lousy feeling, but my 26th birthday is coming wor!
