Video Games

I live in New York City.  Having resided there since I was four, I don’t experience the same rush that someone visiting  for the first time might encounter.  Therefore, instead of exploring the greatest city in the world, (Suck it Washington D.C.) I spend my time in front of my television, playing virtual games.  Now, you might ask: “Julian, why is it so important to partake in such trash when you could be enjoying fantastic experiences right in your own backyard?”  My answer is: “I live in New York City and we have no backyards.  Where did you argument just go?  Out the window.”  No, in all seriousness, I play video games because I like the different places and things that I can see.  Sure, I could visit a bookstore or sit in a park in real life, but in my video games, I can become a cowboy, go into space or play baseball in the pros.  That’s, like, really cool.  I won’t ever actually do any of those things, (But I saw you dressed up as a cowboy last night. Shut up.  That was  supposed to be a secret.) but in my games I can.  What I personally don’t understand is why everyone has to hate on those that play video games.  I mean, it’s not my fault if you don’t have the swag to beat me in Call of Duty.  Sure I spent three and a half weeks practicing, but its not like you didn’t have the opportunity to do so as well.  In the end, video games are awesome and if you don’t play them, you have no life.  (Are you sure?  I think its the other way around.)  Now, if you’ll excuse me I have to leave my apartment.  (Really?!  For the first time in two months?)  I have to go to Gamestop to pick up my new game.  (Of course.  For a few seconds, I had a shred of hope.)

This blog is informal to say the least. It's almost like an online journal, filled with stories that I find funny, interesting things/links and anything else that comes to my mind. Enjoy.
