Why I Still Love Video Games at X Years Old

 I still play video games as a such-and-such-years-old adult. See what I did there with the age non-reveal? Seriously though, I am a grown woman, and I think video games are great. In fact, I'm starting to take pride in my effort to collect all the Sony gaming systems. I used to buy them and resell them after tinkering with them for only a short time. Now, I think I should start keeping them. Gaming is a part of me just like music creation is, and I love doing it. Thus, I'm accumulating little pieces of myself that I can leave behind when it comes time for me to depart from Earth. Whoever I choose to leave my collection to will know who I was and what I enjoyed doing the most in my spare time. 

I've been fooling with the PS3 this month. I like the PS3 because it has many of the games from movies I enjoyed during its era, like "Iron Man" and the "Spiderman" movies with Tobey Maguire

The first game I bought for the PS3 was Injustice: Gods Among Us. I freaking loved that game. I also got an arcade version of one of the Street Fighter games, which I thought was horrendous. Fighting games are my favorite genre, but I thought that game was way too corny. The super-cartoonish graphics just didn't do it for me. I didn't like the way any of the characters looked either. I'll never play it again. The good news is that I used the Injustice game for my butt-kicking therapy sessions instead. I had a blast pitting some of the most popular superheroes against each other and controlling the ones I wanted to use. 

Iron Man is my favorite superhero of all time. A lot of it has to do with the sexy superb way that Robert Downey, Jr. played him during his run. Therefore, the second game I ordered was the Iron Man game for PS3 that came out in 2008. 

Unfortunately, the Iron Man game disappointed me. I became frustrated with it within minutes. Why? Because it made me realize something about myself and video games. Video game playing is my escape from reality. When I play video games, I want to get right into the action. I want to fight or drive mopeds and cars or fly high up in the sky. I don't want to be burdened with tasks or assignments. Life already has too many tasks. Video games are my way of getting away from all that.

I hardly ever follow video game stories or complete tasks. I'm into games that allow me to roam freely and do whatever I want to do. That's why I love GTA: Vice City for the PS2 so much. I steal a pink scooter and ride around for hours while listening to 80s music. I still play that game from time to time. 

All I wanted to do with Iron Man was fly. Unfortunately, I have to break out of some camp and pass the first stage before the game lets me fly. Spiderman for PS4 is amazing in that aspect. I remember I spent about an hour swinging around the city one day. I guess I'd better look into more of the Spidey games.
