PC Games As A Distraction?

Blog Post created by jonescarp.aka.dale.Jan_2007 on Feb 28, 2018

      I got my first computer when Windows 95 came out. I had been using a word processor for bids and contracts along with a fax machine.  Remember those things? 

      I loved playing Tomb Raider and Diablo.  My wife always knew where to find my daughter and myself after I got that computer.. I remember having so much fun. Thing is, I was so involved, I didn't want to go outside and smoke.

Lots of dopamine. LOTS

 

      Then I just had to build a computer from scratch. It had everything plus 5 hard drives. I had it set up to edit video because two harddrives splitting the work can do it much faster.Then I built one for my daughter. A computer is just a bunch of parts that click into the motherboard. The fun is choosing the parts you want. There are 2 brands of processors and they each had to use a motherboard with a matching pin socket. I liked to upgrade from what I could buy ready made so building computers from scratch became another hobby.

 

      I don't know, maybe the first person shooter games where all you're doing is holding a gun and shooting might be a little much while you're trying to quit smoking.

 

Ever play them?

Any favorites?

 

I still have a dumb phone. (for a reason.)
