My name is Dave, and I love playing video games. Here, for your reading pleasure, are all the video game related t-shirts I have worn so far:
I know wearing these certainly doesn’t help me in the “dork” category, but video games have been a part of my life since before I was 10 (read: a long time!).
Even though this shirt suggests that the arrival of Nintendo marked the downfall of the arcade, I still remember enjoying arcade games at the same time I was playing Nintendo. As a youth, summer trips to Hampton Beach meant hours and hours playing in all the arcades. Okay, so I did the same thing this summer, too. The difference was then the games we played were all “new” and we had to wait for them to be released on Nintendo; this year we were playing mostly retro games like Tapper, Pac-Man, and Kung Fu. I’m not sure if I should admit it, but the excitement walking into each arcade was pretty much the same as it was over 20 years ago.
Today, there was more video game excitement for me as I attempted to tackle another level of Harry Potter Lego with my “Little Brother”. We finished off the huge snake in year 2, and will be starting our 3rd year at Lego Hogwart’s next week. Looking forward to that, and more video game hockey with Carl tomorrow…
