Grown men and their games.
Ahem ahem, I don't mean those kind of games, I was referring to computer games. As an adolescent, I have had more than my share of computer games and enjoyed every bit of it. But now I am 26 and still am an avid gamer. I was looking up freudian theories to see the cause of this dysfunction for I am told that , 'only kids play computer games'... so I was more than happy to read the news of American G.I's playing with their consoles when away from the battlefield.
An adult gamer is one who has dedicated endless hours to gaming as a teenager and through his college years. However, the adult gamer now has grown-up responsibilities, from employment to family obligations to keeping an active social life - IDGE, Publisher of Gamestar Magazine
I started playing my first game on the Atari, then migrated to the Commodore 64, then a NES system and the rest is history. Over the years I have played a lot of games and I would like to outline my all time top ten games.
- 1. Neverwinter Nights
- 2. Syndicate
- 3. Warcraft III
- 4. Sam and max hit the road.
- 5. Age of empires series
- 6. Need for speed Underground / Porsche Unleashed
- 7. Flashback
- 8. Call of Duty
- 9. Day of the tentacles
- 10. Mortal Kombat series
It is however ironic that most of us adult gamers can now stop drooling over the latest gaming gadgets and games and can actually buy them but alas we can't spare time from work to actually play the damn thing to our heart's content ... sigh!! That's life I guess.
