Life begins with a rise of the sound that is heard during the midnight and which is extinguished in the light.
One part of my life, apart from writing and traveling (whenever I have the money to do so, of course, is gaming). That basically means playing games at a laptop or at an internet cafe, and that means spending quite a good amount of money and time thinking about the latest games and stuff.
Here is basically the history of some of the games and/or series that I have played in my freaking life:
1. Warcraft III and all the fun maps that come with it
A lot of happy moments come when the word “Warcraft” comes to mind. To start with, there are maps such as Legion TD and Castle Fight, and there are also maps such as DotA, LOD, and others…Then there are the usual maps, the ones that are being used in the ladder, and yeah, I can play Undead only proficiently, and even that, with a very bad micro gaming strategy.
Well, then, there are also some very good things that come with playing Warcraft. It is really fun playing all sorts of fun maps, and even though some of the stats aren’t recorded, the games are just fun and exciting to play!
It’s dead by now. However, the time I spent with it was really fun.
Rest in peace.
Was fun. My hands are too slow for this kind of shit though. I am afraid that I can’t keep up. I’ll be honest with this.
3. DOTA 2
Well, DOTA 2 is basically one of the hottest games in the world right now, and the thing is that it is extremely competitive and everyone really wants to play this game and whatnot. Of course, it is a bit fun, but seriously speaking, many people are really trying hard, and many people would blame you for each mistake that you have done (I escape the blame game pretty much easily, though).
The only reason that I played this game was that there are friends who have played this game and that I wanted to play with my friends (they learned to appreciate the other games pretty soon enough, though).
I’m out of DOTA 2 for now. I am waiting for mods, and I am waiting for new modes to play!
See you much later.
4. Command and Conquer (all games)
Another painful proof that RTS is not for the likes of me. Well, the campaigns were really nice though!
This series was one of which I have played when I was a freaking child, and it was really nice to be honest. The maps were great, the tanks were great, and everything was just amazing! Basically something that I learned to play overtime, and something that I extremely enjoyed due to the objective-style nature of the game.
Bad thing is that I only got to play this thing with my friends rarely, and Philippines’ crap internet made sure that I never, ever had the chance to play it online with hordes of gamers from around the globe.
That was a nice game.
A nice game.
I am hoping to play it again!
6. Age of Empires
What the freaking hell is this game anyway?
7. Call of Duty Series
This is basically the best amongst that I have played, not just for its single player campaigns, but most especially for its multiplayer aspect as well! Playing with players from Europe and elsewhere made sure that while my skills were honed, my fun was also loaded to the max! I played all sorts of Call of Duty maps and mods and games and yeah it was one hell of a ride!
This was the only series where I was almost addicted. In my first year here at Turkey, I used to play 6 hours of COD a day, for a total of 30 hours a week, and every minute that I spent was really worth it!
I’ll admit that my hands were strained to the limit.
But it was okay.
I am really waiting to play this game again…and again…and again!
Pretty much Counter-Strike as it is. Well, I’m happy enough with the games that I have played, even though some were just bad.
I guess that’s my attempt at “meta” writing or whatever it is.
Hope you enjoyed reading!
