Broken Tradition

Back in 2009, my mom started a tradition and I’m not 100% sure why it was started but she was trying to find me something for Christmas and I just told her to get Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for me because I had never played a Call of Duty game before…I hadn’t just gotten an Xbox 360 and it was hyped up and there wasn’t much else I wanted.

I know what you are thinking- “MW2 came out in November of 2009” and that is correct- as an only child of a single mother, I was pretty spoiled and that didn’t really change as I grew up…I was 31 at the time.

I always got my Christmas present in November because I’m not patient and she would eventually give in- it started when I was a kid and last all the way up until last year...

Why Gaming?

There are several answers to that question.

I’ve focused 2018 on being overall happier and that has included things like losing 127 lbs, learning how to weight lift, writing more and getting more into gaming. I’ve had a gaming system pretty much since the original NES and I’ve always loved playing video games but I’ve also always been really bad at it but that didn’t matter as much as it seems to matter these days and I’m not a fan of it.

I would also consider myself to be an old timer but I don’t want to stop learning new technology like new websites coming up, streaming, making videos, etc. Like it or not, there is room in gaming for us older folks and there is room in gaming for us folks that really suck at it but enjoy it.

Gaming should be for everyone and I think we have...

Xbox, Playstation…or Switch – Which is better?

South Park had an amazing episode back in 2013 that discussed this issue perfectly but I still keep seeing all of the BS on the net about which is better…and why.

It doesn’t really matter which is best- let’s be honest. I can go into detail about the power behind each console and the reasons you should and shouldn’t go with one or the other but that is pointless.

We can all agree that the Switch comes in 3rd but even that isn’t a given because it all depends on the gamer and what they are into (and with the new Nintendo Online giving us old timers the games we loved, it may be headed towards the top!)

I grew up with NES and moved on to Super NES and then Nintendo 64 before I moved on to Playstation 1 and then Playstation 2...

I’m Bad At Games

I’ve been on Twitch for a while now because I like watching Boogie2988 and a small handful of others but I’ve always enjoyed watching Twitch streams on YouTube- I’ve learned a lot about Fortnite, Overwatch and other games and I love watching Pew Dew Pie do play through’s of games. Last night though, I decided to become a Twitcher (without the meth).

I updated my Twitch channel a bit and played around with the broadcasting options on my Xbox One. I haven’t built up the courage yet to throw on the mic or camera but I think I will eventually get there because there are tons of folks at there that can show you how to become better at games but there are only a select few who can show you just how good you already are….by showing you how bad I can be.

I do understand that I must hav...

Never Grow Up

Here is a fact- I am the single worst Call of Duty player to ever pick up a controller but that hasn’t changed my love for the game. (honestly, I suck at most games.)

The first COD game I ever played was Modern Warfare 2 and I loved it…not sure why I picked it up to begin with, could have been the hype that pushed me to try it out; however, I have ALL COD games that came out after that point.

Each year my mom would ask me what I wanted for Christmas (yes, I was in my 30s at the time!) and since the new one always comes out in November it basically become a tradition that mom would get the newest one or me as my present or just give me the cash to buy it (or reimburse me if I had already gotten it.)

It would never fail that I would hear the same words…...
