G is for Gaming

Gaming – I am a gamer, I am very proud of the fact that I am a gamer, start talking about Elders Scrolls and I will not shut up, I even did a post a while back on my favorite game Skyrim..

I have been gaming since I was 11, the first game I ever played was The Sims, back in my friends house we set up a home and a little family and I was hooked, I had asked about game bits for Christmas and I got a Playstation, not the lot with the numbers after it, this was the massive box of a thing that had an external hard drive to keep all your saves on it, I had two games, The Rugrats – Search for Reptar and The X Files game, I played… mainly The Rugrats one almost daily until I got bored but I couldn’t afford any new games and I couldn’t convince anyone to get me any for Christmas.. so I stopped.

When I got my job in Sainsburys, I suddenly could afford things, I got a DS for Christmas and started buying DS games and obviously buying The Sims 2 for my PC, which in my honest opinion is the best Sims game to date! I also saved up and brought an XBOX 360, roughly around the time I started to date Mr S (or Daddy Cat heh) so I could play games with him, with my sparkly new XBOX, I also got this wonderful fun game called Left 4 Dead, I highly recommend you give it a go as its so much fun with four people..

I started to really love gaming again, and then in 2011 when this wonderful RPG called Skyrim came out (number 5 in a long history of Elder Scrolls games) I was lost in this whole new world.. I wont bore you much about it but it was incredible..


I now spend my evenings on my XBOX One, I say mine even if Mr S paid for it, but hes often on his PC so its totally mine, playing games and having fun with some friends.. its my way of unwinding after my day with three demonic children..

Call gaming a waste of time if you will but for me its a time well spent.. exploring worlds and going on kill streaks..


A nice break from the real world and its insanity..

Until next time

Mummy Cat.

    I loved that Rugrats game on my ps1 when I was younger haha! My partner games a lot and I do a bit. I love the Sims! The 2nd one is so good! I’m yet the play the 4th one though. Skyrim is such a beautiful game isn’t It?! I love reading about other people’s hobbies and seeing what people play and stuff if they game etc. So fascinating xx

    Ive always been into gaming too. Haven’t had time for it recently and can’t afford the newest Xbox but I really want to get into it again! I loved the Sims too and Skyrim is also my fav 😀 I played world of Warcraft for years (total nerd) I love BioShock, gears of war etc but not tried Left 4 Dead so that’s definitely on my list xx

    The Sims was my favourite growing up but I can’t play it now as I get so sucked into it! My partner writes about gaming on his blog too xx

    If something makes you happy, then it is most definitely not a waste of time!

    Ugh YES! I am a huge gamer 😀 I could talk about games for ages :’) Skyrim was such an amazing game.. We’ve been bringing back the memories of Crash Bandicoot recently with the new redo that’s come out this year! We started out on the sims too and Sims 2 was definitely the best out of the lot. I literally bought the Nintendo Switch just to play the new Zelda – Breath of the wild, and when I finished it I sold it! Kinda bummed I did sell it in case any more games I want come out on it but we’ll see… Anyway, I’ll shut up now!! :’)
