I’m Not A Player, I Just Play A Lot

fifa12Lately, I’ve been obsessed with FIFA ’12, a soccer game on the PS3. Honestly, there’s a little part of me that feels like I should keep this to myself because I’m not a gamer. I sure as heck don’t want to come across as one, because I love the outdoors. I’m not fond of wearing headsets, chatting with gamers online about the latest World of Warcraft, sitting in a dark room with cheese puffs in a bowl next to me. But man, FIFA soccer is really fun. I haven’t played a soccer video game since college with my roommate Mike LaFavre. We played, gosh it must’ve been FIFA ’99 which seems like forever ago. I’m sure he’d still destroy me because Mike was good on Playstation soccer, and even better in real life.

What continues to amaze me are the graphics and the life-like look/actions of the players. It’s remarkable how realistic it all is. Games have come a long way since the days of Mario Brothers and Duck Hunt (pictured below), that’s for sure. Ah, well, I’ll just chalk this up to having fun in the winter/spring till the sun comes back to play.
