Am I a gamer now?


For years I disliked playing games. Never before in my life I had a gaming console, and the last game I played from start to end was The Secret of Monkey Island. But a couple of years ago I decided to buy a PlayStation 4 and I’m extremely happy with that decision. The main reason was of course to start playing myself, but also to raise my kids in a house where gaming is “normal”.

Why did I wait so long?!

I don’t think I’m a hardcore gamer, not even close, but since I bought my PS4 I play at least one hour almost every night, as a way of cooling off my mind before going to bed. I find it very relaxing and entertaining. I mostly play solo games, the idea of working online with others doesn’t attract me, as I take this time as a me time and I don’t want to engage with others. I know that I’m missing lots of fun, or so I’ve been told, but I’m happy with this decision.

Over the course of the upcoming months I’ll try and leave some “reviews” on some of the games I played so far:

  • Horizon: Zero Dawn
  • God of War
  • Uncharted Saga
  • The WItcher 3
  • Detroit: Becoming Human
  • Mass Effect: Andromeda
  • Spider-Man
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider
  • The Last of Us
  • Dragon Age: Inquisition

I cannot finish this post without saying this: the very first game I played, Horizon: Zero Dawn, I fell in love with the character, the world, and the story behind it:
