In which I reveal how deeply shallow I am. Wait. What?
Awhile back I wrote about guilty pleasures and mentioned how much I enjoyed the TV series, Buffy and the Vampire Slayer.
Shocking though it may seem, I have other guilty pleasures. Playing video games, for example. Now in this day and age, playing video games is not exactly unusual, even for someone, uh, my age. (I’m somewhere between middle-aged and ancient.) Yet not long ago I bought a game and had the store clerk look at me and say, “Is this a gift for someone?” When I replied that no, the game was for me, I could see a hint of surprise, which I interpreted to mean, “Really? Dude! Aren’t you a little old for Saints Row the Third?”
I don’t actually mind being my age and playing these games. A few years back when I was playing World of Warcraft, I ran into players who were in their 30s, 40s, 50s and even older.
The “guilty” part, I guess, is how much time I can spend playing the damn things. If I get sucked in I can play for hours. And hours.
Do you have any guilty pleasures you’re bold enough to share?
What are some of your favorite games?
P.S. Please don’t judge me. At least not too much.
