When I was growing up, I didn’t have a lot of girlfriends. My brother and I are only two years apart, and I found myself always wanting to tag along with him and his friends instead of with my Girl Scout troop. My big bro was really into video games so, wanting to be as cool as him, I was also really big into video games.
I would go running into the basement while he and his friends played something on our PlayStation and demand to be included. I wasn’t very good at first, but I slowly became a seriously good gamer. I loved it and eventually started saving up to buy my own games and would fight with my bro over who got the console first.
Even now, I love video games. I think they’re really fun and wish I had more time to play! I was never a fan of war games or ones that involved a lot of gore, but I could work my way around more than Mario Party. Games these days are getting more and more creative, and there is a game out there for everyone.
Check out these new games I think you’ll totally love.
