Ramblings of a Normal Guy: Video Games and the idiots who (don’t) play them.

Welcome to another addition of ramblings of a normal guy. This is my special column, where I go off on wild rants complaining about the things that happen and effect my (and ours) every day life. Because of the excessive amounts of stupidity that will be featured, a large amount of inappropriate language will most likely be used. Also expect a large helping of calling out and "I don't give a crap". Rated M for mature, and read at  your own risk.  

Ah video games. 

From your humble begins as paper and pencil (well games started there, video came later), how great have you become over the years. From 2bits to Blueray, from big ass cartridges to tiny disks, how many hours have I spent with thee? In a time when many tv’s were black and white and 6 channels, I can still remember a time being amazed at Tanks and playing it without end. I remember how my super awesome Atari could, and did, hold my attention for hours on end, much to the private relief of my parents. Flying over digitized cities, trying to save some bimbo from a monkey, even the annoying cabbage patch kids gave me hours of joy. Oh and btw, back in my day Mario was a bad guy, just saying… As time pasted, my love of games only grew, as did the systems we played them on.
