Do You Know I Am A Gamer

Do you know that I am a gamer. I am registered as an official Xbox GamerChix. My gamer tag is Missess M. Look me up if you are also a gamer. I started early playing video games down at the Campground where I grew up in the summers. They had a gameroom with a pool table,pinball machines and a few arcade games. If you were ever wondering where I was it wasn't hard to figure it out and find me. Thats where I was all the time. Spending tons of quarters chasing the high score. Pinball was mostly my game and I would play the same game for hours with people surrounding me and cheering me on. It was a great feeling to be good at something and love it too. I got pretty good at pool and would lots of times beat a few of the best players. I played arcade games like Tron, PacMan,Tempest,Donkey Kong and Tetris. There were more but I could go on forever listing them. I had a boyfriend in the 8th grade that could play the same PacMan game for hours and hours. I do remember also when we got our very first video game called PONG. It was much like TV Tennis where you just bounced the ball back and forth with on screen paddles. It seems silly right now to play a game like that but that was all there was to play at home until the day Atari was introduced. Got that too and had hours and hours of fun. I even played the most hated game ET The Extra Terrestrial. It was such a flop the rest of the games were actually buried in the middle of no where. I also went with the Nintendo and upgraded all the Nintendo systems when they came out. I also bought a Sega Genesis. Had to play Sonic the Hedgehog. He was up there with Mario. Pinball was still my favorite game at heart but now I was getting to play games without having to put a quarter in everytime I died. Now a days it's a dollar. I moved on to the PlayStation and the games were just getting better and better. The graphics were so unreal. But then along came the XBOX and I will admit it didn't catch my interest at first. I wasn't interested in the types of games they featured. But the next thing was the XBOX 360 and it still took me awhile to get with it. Being a gamer was a big surprise to many guys. When I met my husband for the first time he was intrigued by my game play. And also the fact the I loved NFL FootBall. One day while playing a game with him he said to me I am going to marry you someday just because you play games with me. We had such a great time together and when we were stuck in the house snowed in we never minded cause we had lots to do together. Now I am a hardcore XBOX 360 fan and the first game I played on there was a first person shooter called Rainbow Six Vegas. It was so much fun because you get to play with others from all over the World. And how mad they would get when they were beaten down by a girl. I made so many friends. XBOX 360 is like a social media platform. You make friends,compare profiles,chat and leave messages to others. We all make a date to get on and play and hang out with each other all night. There are people of many age groups on the XBOX and what really gets people is I am a 43 year old Mom. My sons friends say to me get out. You play XBOX too no way. I say well I was a gamer before my son was ever thought of and because of me and my husband being gamers he picked it up before he was 1. He played Nintendo Game Cube and Playstation 2 mostly but before he was 2 he was playing Viva Pinata on the XBOX. He was really good at it too. Soon he was playing Halo games. Really good at them too and now he is 13 and is still a hardcore gamer. In 2008 we opened a store in Philadelphia Pa called CheckPoint. It was a Cyber Cafe that was geared for XBOX gaming by the hour. Tournaments and Birthday Parties. It was a big hit and we were having lots of fun. Doing something we loved to do and getting paid to do it. It was the greatest thing ever. We were signing up memberships left and right and even had some people that would sit all day and play. The Birthday Parties were a big hit and they were cheaper than any party place around. Then came the recession and took with it our American Dream. Parents weren't giving their children money for entertainment anymore. We opened our store with a loan from the bank and had lots of bills to pay to keep the store going. Soon more money was going out than was coming in and then it was soon gone and so were we. I went through severe depression and I hated the XBOX for awhile. But I realized it wasn't the XBOX that got us in trouble so I went back to playing it. After all we had lots of games to play now. We have over 500 games to play. It seems like I don't find much time to play because of my busy life. But I always try to get a game or to in before I go to bed. My son and my husband play all the time. It helps them bond better to have something in common. Helping each other beat that next boss level. It also helps me bond well with my family having something in common to talk about. Hearing my husbands friends say to him your wife plays XBOX with you no way. Your so lucky your wife plays XBOX my wife wants to break the XBOX over my head. Most of my friends are husbands and wives that play XBOX right along with us. It's so great to surround yourself with like minded people. The newest features added to the XBOX have attracted alot more people to the system. The first feature is called Kinect. Nintendo WII had this concept first. Except with Nintendo WII you need to use a controller that wound up through the screens of many televisions. These concepts make you the controller of the game. You use your body to make all the moves. XBOX has some fun games that even help you lose weight when you play them. XBOX has also become an entertainment platform for movies and TV. They even teamed up with YouTube and Hulu allowing you to view these videos from your XBOX. Even my cable company got in and lets you view their on demand programs. What I love most about the XBOX is it has a gamer score. Every gamer profile has there own unique gamer score acheived by playing the games and unlocking them when you do something the game wants you to. My husbands score is pretty impressive around 120 thousand. Mine is around 30 thousand and my sons is half of my husbands. It's fun to play when you know you have something to acheive. Thanks for reading my Blog and now you know a little more about me. If your a gamer too look me up and request to be my friend. Battlefield and Portal 2 are just a few of my favorite games I am playing now. Missess M
