Videogame Junkie...

I've been bad.... In the last 2 weeks I have bought 3 video games.... My name is Mike and I am a video game-aholic.

I am currently playing Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Double Agent, Gears of War, and Call of Duty 3. Three very different evolutions of the first shooter I ever played, Castle Wolfenstein 3d.

Splinter Cell is more of a third person (you see your character) stealth game where stealth is the way to go. In fact on many levels you don't even fire a gun( the horror!).

Call of Duty 3 is a pure FPS game, run and gun. All you see infront of you is the tip of your gun and the Germans. It is based around WW2 and the re-taking of Paris. Very intense action!

Gears of War is basically Doom on crack, steroids, and maybe a bit of caffeine. Probably the most amazing looking game I have seen. Creatures coming at you from all angles. Pretty gory, I actually turned it down because I am not big on that kind thing. Also, not a good game to play right before bed as nightmares would probably follow.

...And by the way, before any of you throw a guilt trip towards me saying, "I wish I had the time to play video games...", realize that this replaces TV time. All I sit and watch regularly is The Office and Lost.
