You don't play enough videogames

 Read this to find out why its important to make more leisure time, and see some unique things about videogames.

As you grow older and take on more responsibilities, there’s less time for leisure activities like playing videogames. But it’s vital you make time at least once in awhile...

 Not just for your own enjoyment, but for the sake of your friends who still feel nostalgic about the times you played together.   They still lie in awake at night thinking about slaughtering you in Super Smash Brothers, and they get teary eyed reminiscing about Goldeneye.

 Just because you have a job now doesn’t mean you can act better than everyone else and stop visiting your friend’s badass mancave. His parents are going away this weekend so you can play some PS3 on their big-screen TV. Plus, he has beer and chips.

Personally, I don’t have time for videogames between the daily international business deals and nightly rave/orgies.  But I know this guy who’s disappointed his friends aren’t gamers anymore. Whenever he gets a new game, he tries to convince his friends it’s worth checking out. He never has time to properly describe the game before they dismiss it, so he’s resorted to showing them the most unique or shocking thing the game has to offer. 

Here’s a small sample of the ways he’s tried to catch his friends’ attention and their narrow-minded responses.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater – “You can hide in a cardboard box.”
Friend: “Snake Eater? Sounds pretty gay.”

We Love Katamari – “You can roll up almost anything.” 
Friend: “This looks like a Japanese LSD hallucination.”

Portal – “You can fall forever if you shoot one in the floor and one in the ceiling.”
Friend: “I don't get it.”



Condemned 2 – “You can investigate crime scenes and punch people in the face.”
Friend: “Is that a doll attacking you with a metal lollypop?”


Indigo Prophecy – “You can make the characters so depressed they kill  themselves.”  
Friend: “Then do it. Now turn it off.

GTA IV – “You can have sex with prostitutes”
Friend:  “That’s pretty cool.”

Red Dead Redemption – “You can lasso old-timey prostitutes and kill them in slow motion.”
Friend:   “Can you have sex with them? No? That sucks.”

Take advantage of this wisdom and find some more leisure time in your own life.

Submit a one sentence description of the most unique thing about your favourite game, and I’ll forward them to this lonely gamer so he can try them out.
