followed by some games i played a lot of this past year and little minirants about them LOL
I really dislike reading s**t online about what a real girl who likes video games...HAS TO BE! I think it's because females have too many opportunities to talk s**t to one another these days so we're all openly shaming one another and given so many outlets to criticize...not to mention people set themselves up for it. Maybe no one would harass you on tumblr if you'd get your face the ******** off tumblr.
But anywho, I usually dislike the entire "I play video games" conversation. I'm first to admit--I really don't know much about video games the way a lot of true enthusiasts do. I don't prowl the internet for the newest trailers and gameplay, subscribe to the magazines, or any of that s**t. It doesn't really say anything against my love of video games, but just something about me. I'm not an obsessive kind of person when it comes to interests--I have many and don't find that knowing every detail about something will magnify my affections. I could walk by most of my favorite musicians on the [******** street and never know. I don't have to look at their face to love their music. But I digress...
I don't like feeling bad about liking Call of Duty either. There. I said it. I LIKE CALL OF DUTY. I LIKE IT. A LOT. I like first person shooters. I have been playing them since I was a kid. I follow other popular FPS like Halo and Battlefield too so when I say I'm going to kill an hour with some CoD--don't judge me.
There's just so much judgement in the gaming community I feel. Oh, so I like popular FPS--I MUST NOT PLAY ANY OTHER GAMES! It's like, I get that some people don't care for them. I have a friend who literally had a second bedroom to keep his game collection in when we were kids. Now he's considered a "retro gamer" and he doesn't care for most current generation games unless they're RPG's or action/puzzle or on handhelds. But he doesn't judge me much for playing CoD because if I asked him to play Goldeneye on N64 he'd be down like THAT! I get that the internet opens up this boundless forum of anonymous egotism and we can just say whatever we want, but a**umptions, man.
End weird rant. Sorry, I'm high.
favorite games i've played the past year
these aren't like overall favorites
just games i've found myself playing a lot of in 2012 and into 2013
fallout 3 (i have seen my dad die like at least a dozen times and it always sucks)
fallout new vegas (i don't care what people say-- i like how much rep counts. MAKE REAL CHOICES, FOOLS! AND SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES! quest failed...quest failed...quest failed...hahahahaha)
call of duty black ops II (bam wam, thank you mam aka score streaks aka A.G.R., Stealth Chopper, Warthog...later, yo. p.s. didn't have to watch someone play the game to figure out that beautiful combo. I R SMART.)
i am alive (omg why isn't this game like a real length game because i loved it. one time i had like 6 bullets and i was ******** king of the world.)
dishonored (um, let me play this game forever because i'm going to turn into a rat and run away and climb some s**t all crazy and be stealthy as ********, YO!)
skyrim (i literally can't play this game anymore because that's how much i played it. someday. someday. someday. every time i try to go back i get overwhelmed by how much s**t i have to do.)
halo 4 (wtf, how was that plotline like actually not horrible. i am impressed by the lack of horribleness alone! p.s. thanks for bringing swat back so quickly. whee!)
mirror's edge (i play this game every year ever because it's ******** amazing and everyone should start buying it at like 15 EFFING DOLLARS so then maybe DICE will be like oH HEY I REMEMBER YOU. i am also BOSS at this game.)
limbo (i actually haven't beaten this game yet because I REFUSE to look up how to get past this one level. i am being stupidly stubborn, but this game is such a gorgeous side scroller omg)
from dust (what can i say...i like being god...and some of those later levels are ROUGH! burn all my people alive why don't you world...)
minecraft (on xbox LE SIGH. this game is dangerous for me because i could build things all day.)
portal 2 (um, this game is effing hilarious. AND THE TWO PLAYER IS AWESOME!!!!)
bioshock (because everyone should replay bioshock at least once a year and especially when you're so excited for the next installment that you could PEE YOURSELF)
bayonetta (the gameplay in this make devil may cry look choppy. PLUS, IT'S LIKE WATCHING A SHITTY ANIME THAT YOU LOVE!)
saints row the third (um, because it's the funnier version of GTA. I'm going to smack you with a huge purple d***o to DEATH if you disagree)
