So I told my friend who was with me in the bath… Now that I have your attention, no this post is not about an extremely awkward situation, sorry to disappoint. I’m actually referring to gaming with other people… online, I know, not exactly what you would expect to be reading about on Why Ed. But you know what? I don’t really give a shit. I was about maybe 5 years old when I started gaming, so yeah didn’t have much of a childhood. Even now there are few things I enjoy more than shooting the crap out of people with a trusty assault rifle (in a game you understand). My gaming skills is a little more advanced than my writing talent I assure you! I even joined a “clan” were called 5FdP (that’s five finger death punch to those wondering) and the feeling of camaraderie between a couple of guys, even though we haven’t met in person is strong.

(Just a side note: if I am found dead in a ditch somewhere within the next few days,

tell the police to investigate the members of my clan!)

Firstly, this bullshit that only; boring little nerds that have no life play video games, is well… bullshit! I’m not little! OK! Most of the guys and girls that play Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 are awesome people. There are exceptions though, some are little kids that find it hilarious that their shit stinks, and also feel the need to share that thought with everyone…

Secondly, have you ever tried to shoot straight after a bottle of Jager? My friend has, it was fucking hilarious to watch! That was until he puked up his dinner all over my controller… Yeah it wasn’t funny after that. The point is gaming is fucking awesome! Having a couple of buds over, getting wasted and then trying to play Dragon Force (on a little plastic guitar) is one of the best memories I have.

All thanks to the wonders of video games (and a fuck-load of alcohol).
