there was a solid 10 year gap between me touching video games, from my last year of college through the start of Covid. The last video game I regularly consumed was Rock Band in college. Still pretty sure I would still absolutely crush Chad Smith's drum line from 'Dani California' in that game. On expert no less! With 1/2 a bottle of $10 vodka coursing through my veins no less!
Fast forward to the year 2020 and I feel like Brooks from The Shawshank Redemption. "The whole world upped and grew up on me." I had NO CLUE gaming became as popular as it did and that it was the multi-billion dollar machine that it currently is. I mean I feel like it was just yesterday that I was running around Hyrule playing songs on an Ocarina in attempts to summon my horse. Now I'm connected to people all over the world getting massacred in Verdansk because Smitty is a dogshit teammate and even worse general.
It's become a sort of addiction and something I'm glad I got involved with. Sure, I could have used that time to get in shape and teach myself guitar like I planned, but this is a way better use of my time. Just sit around on my couch, shit talk Smitty for his awful leadership skills and place 43rd in Warzone for like 4-5 hours a night. It's the best.
And now we're introducing zombies to the Verdansk mix? And Jig Saw? YES PLEASE. Call of Duty just got a WHOLE lot better. Can't wait to waste my time on this for the next however many years. This is going to be absolutely biblical.
