I'm just going to lay it out there: the issue is time.
I wanted to say "as a woman".... but I don't know if that is unfair to my fellow ladies, but I feel like, as a woman, I am always putting myself and what I want to do on the back burner. For me that means I don't make the time to game. And oh how I miss it.
This is partially an apology blog for me not being around much...Lucky you, readers, you have Debbie totally keeping Game On alive. And she is an amazing gamer and blogger.
So time. I let everything else come between me and gaming. It is a priority, but it is low on the totem pole. Like right now my Xbox is living with a friend, but I have my Wii...in a box. I haven't even taken the time in the last 3 months now to set the poor thing up. I can hear its weeping now. I've all but given up on getting the DS back out of my daughter's sticky little hands. All I have left is the PC, and play it I do. Simple Facebook games (I'm looking at you, My Tribe), are what seem to get a lot of my "game time" these days, mostly because I can play them and put them back down in the span of 5 minutes. I also spend a fair amount of time WoW-ing, but I have promised you in the past that I wouldn't make this into another WoW blog. There are hundreds of them, and, while some are horrid, there are some good ones and I don't even want to get into that competition.
At any rate, I miss my Xbox. I miss playing. A pink controller just came out for the PS3 and I had a longing for some game time. I just hope you know that I'm not sitting here gaming and not telling you about it, or that I've given up all together.
So what keeps you from gaming? And what should I do!? Do I make it a priority above all else? My kids are old enough to feed themselves, right? ;-)
