Your eyes hurt, you know they do. That all-nighter playing games online can really wear you down. I recently had the dishonor/embarassment/shame of staying up way too late with Phantasy Star Universe
and realized that I really need to find more things to do that don't involve the devil-box. Like playing Monopoly, or Risk, or hell, why not that card game about the history of video games
? This was discovered as I sought Christmas gifts for myself, and you know, it seems pretty neat. Perhaps I'm just an old video game salt. I did grow up with the industry, even though some people are ignorant enough to say I just
play RPG's (entirely not true! What a mean thing to say, Ross. I'm not even going to qualify that slander with proof indicating otherwise). Apparently, the card game goes with the Top Trump theme of playing -- not sure what that is, but it's probably where a higher number/card trumps/beats a lower card. Just a guess. Anywho, check it out. It goes way back to the Colecovision, beyond, and right up to today with the Wii, PS3, and 360. A nice, cheap gift for that roommate who loves games as much as you!
