Games

I have just played what is most probably my last game of Guitar Hero 3.  Certainly on Career Mode that is.  Because I have come to one major realisation, and it has been brewing in my mind for several years now.

I cannot play video games.

I try and try and try to play these things, and the same thing always happens.  Every single time.  I get to a point, then I can't get any further and I end up feeling frustrated with the whole thing.  

So today I am bringing an end to it.  I am flat out refusing and boycotting games like these.  Game with a very specific way of playing.  Games where you either win or lose, and there is no other outcome.  Why?  Because they're not made for people like me.  I simply cannot do it.  I lack the hand eye co-ordination to jump through these hoops.  And why should I PAY to be made to feel that I am not as good as someone else who has posted their video of them acing it in one go on YouTube?  

I had to have a "Guitar Battle" against Slash.  And I couldn't do it.  I tried really hard, but I just couldn't do it.  And to rub salt into the wound, I get booed for not being able to do it.  And after being booed 5 times in a row, I felt just about ready to cry.  So thank you publishers of Guitar Hero 3.  Thank you for making me feel as low as the bullies did at school.  

I was going to ask for Excite Truck and a Steering Wheel for my birthday...I don't think I will bother now.

Come on! Don't be like this... You don't have to win or lose, as long as you have fun with the game? Who cares if you get booed by a game... it's just a game...
