So here's the thing with me about first person shooters. It’s really a strong love, hate relationship. I love to win, hate to lose, hate when I lag, love when I crush, etc, etc. The problem is that I love the games probably more than I should… I’m so addicted to these type of games that sometimes they make me go clinically insane. I remember my first time I 1v5’d a team in Gears Of War 3, I have never screamed that loud in my life, I was so impressed with myself, my team was like OMG, you just pulled off a miracle, and I knew it was a miracle. Sadly, the next game I got crushed, and had like no kills. Funny how that works huh? Every time I pick up my controller, I wonder how this day will go, or how the game will run. I hope it doesn’t go to crap, or my internet decides to fail, multiple things go through my head, but defiantly the most important part for me is about having fun. I have a story to tell you about having fun, which actually happened last week. I was playing some Xbox, and getting ready to write this article, and I was thinking to myself, am I having fun, or am I just wasting my time? Of course when you have great games you are having fun, enjoying yourself. Some people like to play FPS to relax, some people play to go hardcore, depending on how you’re play style is.
I’m a mixture of both, depending on how I want to play, if I want to relax, I’ll lean back in my chair, without a care in a world, I’ll say to myself when I die “meh” . When I play serious, I’m leaned into my monitor, sweating, hands prepared for whatever comes at me, and when I lose, I want to smash a wall, or something to that extent. I was over at my buddies, and we were having a discussion on what we should play, Halo 4, Black ops 2, Battlefield 3, or whatever. I personally enjoy Black Ops 2 now, I find it a really fun game, some of my friends dislike it, but I enjoy it actually. My friends really dislikes it, and he’s a Halo lover, now, don’t get my wrong I enjoy both games, but when it comes down to it, I want to enjoy my time when I game, I don’t want to get aggravated or get to the point where I want to throw my box into the floor, and just forget about it. No, no that’s not me. I want to ENJOY myself. I hope you all enjoy yourselves too when you game. Back in the day I used to play a lot of CS:S (Counter Strike: Source). That game I could never get mad at, I enjoyed that game as much as one could. I played Surf, Jail, Deathmatch ETC. I still casually log on to the game when I want to play it, I probably will never play a better FPS than that. It’s old school, and I have met some of my best friends on there.
Well, I should really get back to the point of these articles, I am really enjoying the games I am playing, and talking to you all about. Battlefield 3 is going really well and I’ve gotten into sniping again. Best of all I love getting those head shots (Who wouldn’t right?). I play Black ops 2 here and there. But it's really getting on me, I don’t find it a camping game, well, on some maps there is a lot of camping. But I’m more of a in your face, I will shoot you point blank and waste a whole clip on you sort of guy. That’s mainly my play style in Black Ops 2, Halo 4, and other games, Battlefield 3 is definitely a different situation. I’m more the type of guy camping, laying in the back, waiting for someone to snipe. It really depends on the map as well!
I’m playing through some other games, that I will probably do a play through with. I’m thinking about Far Cry 3, or something else. I’m not sure yet. As a heads up in the future, I will be writing a lot of articles when Crysis 3 comes out, that game I am SUPER stoked for. I loved Crysis 1 and 2. I am definitely looking forward to that, and Gears Of War: Judgment. I will posting on them when new information is released, and things like that. As for myself, I’m going to continue to game for you all, and tell you all about how I lose, and win. I really hope you enjoyed this article, I will be back next week with more nonsense, rants, and reviews. Cheers!
