Gaming: How it started for me

SO! AS MOST OF YOU KNOW I AM ADDICTED TO GAMES, IF YOU DIDN’T KNOW YOU DO NOW!

BASICALLY FOR MOST OF MY LIFE I HAVE BEEN PLAYING VIDEO GAMES, I GREW UP ON CONSOLES SUCH AS THE NINTENDO NES , NINTENDO 64, PLAY STATION 1 AND PLAY STATION 2.

ALTHOUGH THESE ARE NOT THE OLDEST CONSOLES IN THE 8 GENERATIONS OF GAMES I CAN NOT HELP WHAT MY PARENTS DECIDED TO RAISE ME ON. AFTER ALL I AM ONLY A 90’S BABY. ALTHOUGH I WILL ADMIT THE 3RD TO 5TH GENERATIONS STAND TO BE MY FAVOURITE TO THIS DAY, EVEN IF THE XBOX 360 IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE CONSOLES AND IT IS PART OF GENERATION 7.

I WILL ADMIT I AM NOT AS SERIOUS AS A GAMER AS I WOULD LIKE MYSELF TO BE. I DON’T KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT GAMES AND I DO NOT ACT LIKE I DO EITHER, BUT I PLAN ON STUDYING THE HISTORY OF GAMING AND THE INDUSTRY IN GREAT DETAIL AND HOPEFULLY ONE DAY WILL BE ABLE TO CALL MYSELF “AN EXPERT”.

BEFORE I GO INTO DETAIL ABOUT MYSELF AND GAMES AND WHERE IT STARTED I JUST WANTED TO BRING UP THIS TOPIC THAT IS STUCK IN MY HEAD.

AS A FEMALE GAMER I FIND I ATTRACT THE WRONG KIND OF ATTENTION IN ONLINE GAMES MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE. NOW I PERSONALLY HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH PEOPLE WHO TRASH TALK OVER XBOX LIVE AND CALL ME NAMES, IT HAS NO EFFECT ON ME WHAT SO EVER , WHAT I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IS GAMERS WHO THINK ONCE IT’S OKAY TO BEAT DOWN ON MY SKILLS BECAUSE I AM A GIRL BEFORE THEY HAVE EVEN STARTED A GAME WITH OR AGAINST ME (ALTHOUGH 70% OF THE TIME GUYS ARE SORRY FOR IT) I AM A DECENT GAMER, NOT THE BEST AND NO WHERE NEAR THE WORST. I PLAY WELL, I PLAY TACTICALLY/STRATEGICALLY  IN GAMES WHERE IT IS NEEDED AND MOST OF ALL I HAVE FUN WHILE PLAYING GAMES, WHICH IS THE MAIN THING!

ONE MORE THING ABOUT FEMALE GAMERS, I DISLIKE 90% OF THEM AND YES I DO KNOW I AM ONE BUT I MAINLY DISLIKE THEM BECAUSE I HAVE ONLY MET A FEW GIRL GAMERS WHO DON’T USE GAMING AS AN EXCUSE TO FLIRT WITH GUYS OR GET ATTENTION. ANY FEMALE GAMER IN MY FRIENDS LISTS ARE ONLY THERE BECAUSE THEY ARE RESPECTABLE PEOPLE AND DECENT GAMERS AND NOT WANNABES.

OKAY ENOUGH ABOUT THAT. I GOT SIDE TRACKED I APOLOGIES.

SO WHEN I WAS EXTREMELY YOUNG I CAN’T EVEN REMEMBER WHAT AGE I WAS I STARTED PLAYING VIDEO GAMES WITH MY DAD. DAD HAD THE NES AND PS1 AND HE THOUGHT ME HOW TO PLAY SUPER MARIO AND IT WAS ONE THE GREATEST PARTS OF MY CHILDHOOD.

BEFORE AND AFTER MY PARENTS SPLIT MY DAD USED TO RENT GAMES ALMOST EVERY WEEK FOR US TO PLAY TOGETHER.
AND AS I GOT OLDER AND MY BROTHER STARTED TO PLAY GAMES MY DAD STARTED BUYING GAMES, AND CONSOLES AND ACCESSORIES FOR US. I REMEMBER LOOKING FORWARD TO MY BIRTHDAY AND MY BROTHERS, AS MINE WAS FIRST MY DAD WOULD BUT SOMETHING BIG, LIKE A PS2 OR A GAMEBOY OR GAMEBOY COLOUR AND A GAME OR 2 , THEN A MONTH LATER FOR MY BROTHERS BIRTHDAY HE WOULD BUY US MORE GAMES AND CHARGER PACKS OR ANYTHING ELSE THAT WAS BIG FOR GAMES AT THE TIME.

THEY WERE THE FEW BIRTHDAY’S I LOVED, AS SOME YEAR’S I SEEMED TO BE SO ANTI-BIRTHDAYS I WOULD ALWAYS GET UPSET ( I STILL DO NOT KNOW WHY)

SO NOW YOU KNOW WHERE GAMING HAS STARTED FOR ME, AND ITS ALL THANKS TO MY PARENTS I FEEL I SHOULD END THIS PIECE AND CARRY ONE A SHORT SERIES OF BLOGS ON MYSELF AND GAMING.

THANKS FOR READING.
(Yes i posted this on my new Tumblr also I will most likely be sharing it on both from now on)
