I'm an XBOX fan, I have since I first got my hands on Gears of War, before that I had a Playstation, SNES and Master System, All great consoles with great games but nothing has captivated me like the 360, Games like Zelda, San Andreas have all taken up large chunks of time but Games like Gears of War, Call of Duty, Red Dead Redemption and more have become more,
A time machine if you will, relationship testing worlds, where another 10 minutes becomes a string of 4am's and a concerned missus,
A world where you take the game everywhere, dreaming of sawing Aliens in half as you talk to your boss, Worrying but I've always been able to break from the cycle, continue life without the need to check around corners, entering the toilet or throwing grenades in my sleep.
Both the missus and I have just watched the trailer for the new Simcity, "That looks good" "I could play that" I was also reminiscing to Simcity 3000 and the Days it took from me,
I've got a feeling this game could be a next step up, where I'll end up with delusions of grandeur, thinking I'm the Mayor of Nottingham, Prime Minister or king of the world.
Addiction to gaming is fine, just so long as you remind yourself there's still a world out there, A wife too love, A Job to go too, Bills too pay, Pets that attention and a Bike too Ride (Yep, thats my Life!),
Simcity 5 looks dangerous to me but sod it!
