A Guilty Pleasure

One of the long, lost, forgotten things I have happened upon while organizing have been my old computer games. I own several of the Sims games as well as the whole Myst Trilogy. I'm pretty sure they have more than just the 3 now though so I probably shouldn't call it a trilogy, oh well. My games were so old I had to download Quicktime 2 instead of 7 to get them to work lol. Like everything else, it's not Vista friendly. I hate Vista, but that's another rant for another day.

I resisted temptation until this weekend to play them again. Why did I have to resist you ask? Well one of my guilty pleasures is strategy games. I can get COMPLETELY absorbed in them. My world basically stops. Just ask my husband. I once played Diner Dash for 8 hours straight. Yeah. It's that bad.

It's really a trait I get from my dad. He refuses to even own any strategy games because he gets so absorbed. I remember when we were kids we would stay up all night with dad trying to beat the Nintendo Mario series. Dad just had to get the princess before we went to bed. It was so much fun. I still have my old Nintendo but I'm pretty sure that thing hasn't worked in a long, long time. Do you remember having to blow all the dust out of the games and hitting the thing to make the screen stop being shaky? Good times.

Anyways, I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to put them away soon in fear that I might become completely unproductive.

What are your guilty pleasures?


  1. Ok, admittedly, I do not play games of any kind unless you count Wii Fit. :) But Diner Dash...oh, I may have played that one time (and one time only) in realy life. LOL.

  2. The Legend of Zelda is my video game obsession. I love ALL of them. <3

  3. I've always wanted to try video games on computer... My mom-in-law has ton of games, CSI, etc. I think I should really try it - thanks for motivating me, Laura!


Comments make my day! Go ahead...get to typing. I want to hear from you.
