Officially. I'm not one for video games. I hate hate hate with a passion 'call of duty' and any other stupid war mongering game where you run around and shoot things. That's lame. I am very particular about the games I like, and I am very particular about the ways I play them.
For instance, when I started playing Guitar Hero, I played for 18 consecutive hours and thought i'd have to go to hospital to have my claw hand operated on. And I have been known to play old school Sonic and Super Mario Bros for hours on end.
I have found my new video game crack.
It's probably considered the lamest game in the universe.
Bejeweled is the game, and its like taking video game heroin.
Last night I thought i'd get a quick half an hour in before bed, then I look at the clock and its almost 3am!!!!!!! where the hell did 3 hours go?? Did I fall into a time portal or something? I don't understand.
The game is so simple its ridiculous. Move blocks around and line up 3 colours. Plus it makes a satisfying chinging sound when you get a row. Much like a cash-register when you make an impulse buy. Yet it's dangerous. You can't just put the game on for a quick go, you'll end up glued to the couch whilst hours disappear around you, till unbeknownst to you - the sun is rising.
And that's how I plan to spend the rest of my days.
