I think I was an intense gamer as a child. When I had free time, I loved my Gameboy, Nintendo and Super Nintendo. My fingers got really sore from hours of playing Street Fighter 2.
If I was at my godparents’ house, I’ll admit to being fidgety while my godfather watched a documentary or NFL game. (Please, just a few levels of Super Mario Bros 3. I have a Game Genie, so it’ll be quick.)
I was a tad annoyed with assignments in high school that required me to watch—or listen to—a news program, as the material would be discussed the following day in class.
Today, I don’t want a gaming system. I love podcasts, documentaries, and long form articles/posts. Crazy.
