18 related anecdote no.19

I was once browsing the computer games section of Blockbuster trying to find a PS2 game.


This is something I no longer do as I do not play computer games anymore (the last time I bought and played a computer game was in 2006).  This is all because the last game (it shall remain unnamed) destroyed my life.  The epiphany occurred when I awoke from a trance early one morning.  I was surprised to discover that I was sitting cross-legged on the end of my bed, in my boxers, covered in sweat, tears staining my cheeks, a PS2 controller in my hand and the television on in front of me with the game in question on the screen.  It was half 5 in the morning.  I had been playing it non-stop for about 12 hours and had lost almost half my bodyweight in sweat.

“Should probably stop playing computer games now.” I thought, and that was that.


Anyway, back to what I was trying to say.  I was browsing the computer games, and I came across one called Shadow of Rome – I had never heard of it, but it was an 18 so I bought it.

I played it twice and then never picked it up again.  Now and again I’ll glance at it whilst browsing my 18s but that’s about it.


Only I don’t.
