Most of us have probably heard of the term “football widow”. You know, the wife who has to play second-fiddle to her husband’s passion for spectator sports, which he usually watches on TV in the season that they are active.I wonder what the term would be the mother who kept losing her computer to her son, due to his passion for computer gaming? My personal experience in computer gaming comes from a slightly different angle than that of the gamer. Whenever we shopped in Wal-Mart, he would play the latest games in the electronics department while I shopped, so he was up on the latest games and knew whether he wanted to own any of them.
When my son was home and before he finally got a computer that could hold up under the stress of gaming, he used mine whenever I wasn’t sitting in front of it, to either play his latest game, or to shop online for his newest passion.
His favorite games were mainly AE Sports titles, such as Madden, College football, Need for Speed and Red Alert.It was due to one of his games that I learned about Wake Forest.
He now owns two computers. One for gaming and the other for other things not related to gaming.
His current favorites have gone to different name brands. They are:
EA Sports-Medal of Honor.
Activision-Call to Duty 2 and 4, world at War,Transformers 2,Guitar Hero,
Midway-(Playstation 3)-Mortal Combat vs DC Universe
Blitz Games Studio-(Playstation 3)Blitz the legend
UBI-Rainbow six Vegas 2
His top favorite two are Call to Duty 2 and Call to Duty 4 because they have the best graphics of any of the games he has been playing, excellent game play,and the best to play online. His second place choice would be Mortal Combat vs DC Universe. The playability and graphics are similar to the Call to Duty games, although not quite as good as his first choices.
The rest of his choices, Medal of Honor, Transformers 2, Guitar Hero, Blitz the Legend and Rainbow six Vegas 2 all have the same excellent game play. He won’t own anything that doesn’t. However, their graphics aren’t quite as good as his top choices.
Also, knowing my son, he has always chosen games that have several consistent criteria; They must be intelligent games, which require a great deal of thinking. They will require a lot of concentration and a development of quick reflexes. He also prefers anything that has a mid to high level of action which helps develop one’s dexterity along with the formerly mentioned quick reflexes and keeps his interest engaged and active.
If my son has recommended these games, then they are well worth the money and the time. Unless of course your tastes are not so much into combat or quick action.
