Growing up I was raised on console games. There was a computer in our house from when I was 11 years old (22 years ago yikes), but there wasn’t much in the way of games for computers back then. For years I was a into playing video games, but only on a console. Then Star Wars Galaxies came out and I was in love with this idea of playing online with other people! At first online gaming was a little clunky for me at first it definitely took some adjustment to using a keyboard to play games. I burned myself out a bit on Galaxies and tried out beta’s of Lineage 2 and World of Warcraft, but ultimately was just done gaming in general for a little while.
Once my son was born in 2008 I really started gaming again and let me tell you I frustrated my boyfriend a lot with how I game. I tend to get super frustrated when I die in a game and as a result frustrating him (sorry hun). We played WoW together for a few years and then I stopped playing (taking another break) and then he started Minecraft which I had no interest in. The survival game where when you die you start over from scratch. That seemed like a big fat no for me. Then we started watching Yogscast (which we love these guys) I started to find myself wanting to play. Minecraft took some getting used to, but I got past my frustration with dying (because you have to) and now I love it!
We’ve dabbled a bit in Tekkit and I hope to get into it more once I start streaming. I even came back to playing WoW. Right now I am on break from WoW because of $$$ and the fact I need a new computer. But I’m definitely an adventure gamer. 1st person shooter games are ok, but they don’t thrill me too much. I need creativity and freedom. What kind of gamer are you guys? What do you prefer console or PC?
