Chilling out

I love games.

They're complete escapism for me. Probably not good for the planet in that they're serving to distract me from the shit until I eventually die. But they're fun.

I'm playing Gears Of War 2 right now and I'm loving it. I enjoy violent games. BOOM! There goes a head. Bzzzzzzzz! Take my chainsaw, bitch. And so on. They relieve stress, provide an outlet for that daily anger and yet are free from any actual harm and, to a large extent, morality. That's a good thing.

I wonder what my life would be like if I didn't have an outlet for that anger?

Would I be more productive?

Or would I have gone postal a long time ago?

I'm venting my anger on Call of Duty 5. Very satisfying! I think we all need a punchbag once in a while (or every day!)

AMEN, BROTHA!!!

I tell myself is catharsis.

I've tried to play Horde as a single player on Hardcore, but I just can't get beyond the 5th wave.

Fallout 3 looks awesome too. Although I'm not yet sure if the >$US100 collector's edition will be worth it.
