Gaming

Gaming has been such a huge part of my life for a long time and something that I do want to feature and discuss on this blog. So here’s a look back into my gaming past and what I’m currently doing as well.

History

My first memory of playing a video game is from around the age of 3 or 4, playing on my sister’s Nintendo. I used to love playing Super Mario Bros 3, Zelda, and others and this is where it started I event sometimes played Mario and Tetris on her Game Boy. As I got older my family started buying me my own systems, and my first system that I personally owned was Sega Genesis and Sega Gamegear. Used to LOVE to play Sonic and Echo the Dolphin and still have both systems (and they will work!). After that the first Play Station came out and I remember begging my mom for it for Christmas, surprisingly I got it! Some of my favorites on the system were Tomb Raider and Crash Bandicoot.

When I was in 6th grade (about age 12) my mother bought us our first PC. I did a little bit of PC gaming back then, but it was mostly just basic games and nothing intense. I did sometimes play Tomb Raider and Sims though at a friend’s house. Eventually the xbox came out and I got that for Christmas, where I played the Buffy the Vampire Slayer game and continued my love for the Tomb Raider series and also got into Halo. When the Wii came out a friend gifted me one and I played that a lot, mostly with friends and I even got myself a Nintendo DS.

In 2007 I moved for college and a friend recommended a game called World of Warcraft on PC for me. That game really got me back into PC gaming. I’ve been playing WoW since then (off and on). I raided during several expansion in WoW, but currently I’m not raiding. A few years after the xbox 360 came out and I ended up purchasing one with Christmas money for myself and that’s when I got really into playing Call of Duty.

Once the xbox one came out I knew I had to get it! I played even more Tomb Raider and got into playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 which I even streamed on my Twitch channel. In 2016 the game Overwatch was released and I instantly fell in love with it. I got into playing the game competitively and even currently play on a team.  The heroes I mostly play are D. Va, Mercy, Reinhardt, Zenyatta, and others.

End of 2017 I decided to treat myself to a Nintendo Switch for a Christmas/birthday present to myself. Really loving it so far! When I’m not gaming on PC, I’m most likely playing a game on the Switch.

Currently Playing

The main game that I am currently playing is Overwatch, I even play on a team called Foxglove where I play mostly as a tank. When I’m not playing that I can be found play World of Warcraft, I main a Resto Druid named Veroicone and a Disc/Holy Priest named Sookei both are Alliance and located on the server Sargeras. I also have several toons still on the server Stormage and on Darkspear as well as some Horde toons on Ysera. I’m currently not raiding in WoW but hoping to maybe get back into it in the next expansion. I still sometimes play games on my xbox one and I’m currently enjoying Sims 4 and PUBG on PC, and playing lots of Zelda and Super Mario Odyssey on Nintendo Switch.
