Breakout

We had Breakout on our Atari system, and I loved it. My dad and brother played Space Invaders a lot, and I didn't like it much. I can still remember the *sound* of Space Invaders, floating down the hallway to my room late at night. UGH. Later, we had Frogger, which was a lot of fun too.

And that's really been about it for me. I don't have much time for computer games...never did, having a strong preference to be outside running around instead of being inside at the TV. These days, I tend to prefer getting shit done. Overall, it's my habit to take care of chores/home/kids first and then relax or play games later. You can imagine how often that happens. So what I've got is a complete inability to be at all competitive when the family wants to do something on the Wii. (Go ahead and ask them about the time I tried to play Spyro. You know, the version for preschoolers. Once they get off the floor, it'll be a great story.)

Today, I'll sometimes play Bubble Popper on my phone if I'm standing in line or whatever, but that's about it. Fortunately, I can enjoy being really bad at a game played with family in good spirit. Except when it's Wii yoga, and then I will kick your ass.

I think I behave in a manner consistent with my self, whether I'm offline or online. The big difference is that LJ seldom requires me to be fulfilling any kind of role. I behave differently when I'm being Mom, differently when I'm be being Productive Worker, differently when I'm being Goofy Friend. But I don't think "different" means duplicitous. I seek to behave appropriately in whatever situation or association, and online associations are compartmentalized from real life in many cases.
