i'm good!

It's never too late to have a happy childhood...

So, Brandon's been playing Uru for quite some time. Even before the release, he was playing in the beta test. Having seen hours and hours of it, I was really interested. Not only is the game amazingly pretty, it also looked like a lot of fun to play. I like puzzle games, and this seemed to be my cup of tea. I wanted to play too. Sometimes, when he went to the bathroom or something, I snuck over to the computer to play a little bit.

Thing is, I never played any of the earlier Myst games. We didn't have a computer back in the day that I was allowed to play any games on, and besides, I wasn't really aware of computer games at the time. Hell, I didn't even have a Nintendo or Atari as a child, and when I went to my friend's houses, I just watched them play. I enjoyed watching all these different games, but I never got into playing them.

Yesterday, Brandon bought me the newly released DVD edition of the first three Myst games, so that I could play them and then, eventually, work up to playing Uru. And really, I'm having a blast with it.

I may be a little behind the times, but I'm all about not caring about time. As soon as I get out of work, back to playing!
