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.
***END OF INTERLUDE***
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.
YOU LIVE AND LEARN, NEIGHBOURINO, YOU LIVE AND LEARN.
Only I don’t.
