I’ve always wondered what the hype was with L4Ds, CODs, DOTAs and whatnot that most guys (note that I said MOST guys, not ALL guys.. in case some of you non-gamers get offended. =B ) spend almost 90% of their time in CCs, playing games till early the next morning.
Ok, this may not be the best example, but ok, so I was glued to Ghost Online at one point. But it never really ‘took over my life’. (G.O didn’t do it; the internet did. x] )
So I told Edward that one of these days, I wanted to try L4D2, which he and his gang are currently very much into, to see what the hype was all about. He agreed, though I warned him that he had to have patience, because my knowledge was 0. Nada. NIL.
So tonight, after dinner, he took me to the CC to teach me how to play.
As expected, I was a complete newbie, and ended up shooting my ‘team mates’ more than I shot the zombies. =_= Horrible aiming FTW. xD
But I kinda got the hang of the controls later on, though I still shot my team mates occasionally. xD
It was an OK game. Not VERY nice, but not VERY sucky either. I think I wouldn’t mind as much if the graphics weren’t so.. 3D-ish. It gave me kind of a headache after a while, turning here, turning there, getting lost from turning so much, dying after falling from the first floor because I couldn’t see where I was going, etc. LOL. But it felt nice shooting those fuckers.
Whoops, I just cussed. x]
So yeah, I guess I fail as a Gamer. xp
