So as much as my husband and I pride ourselves on being a big ol’ bunch of geeky geeks, we have been living without a working video game console for, oh, about two or three years now.
We actually have every video game system under the sun in our home – Xboxes, Playstations, Gamecubes, handheld consoles, etc. etc… but they’re all broken. I’m not even joking. You have to look at the pile of dead consoles to really grasp how strange this all really is. It’s like a couple of years ago technology just decided it hated us, and then one after another some evil spirit of gaming decided to go all ape-shit on our house and hex our entertainment boxes.
Anyway, all of that is to say, we bought a brand new PS4 for our household a few weeks ago, so we are a gaming family once again! Well, kind of.. so far it’s just my hubby playing here and there after work. I’ve been too busy with upcoming baby plans and new goats to allow myself to obsess over a new video game… so I’m just saving up all the raw fan girl passion for the new Kingdom Hearts game.
This blog post was inspired from my watching my husband play through Dragon Age. I was just floored by the new graphics and all the details in the characters costumes and features, and I found myself kind of ruing the fact that the lead character is just so, well, plain. I started thinking, they just don’t make video game guys like they used to.
Don’t get me wrong, I am actually quite thrilled with the new trend of utilizing the newer video game graphic technology to create realistic looking characters with scars, flaws and very human features. I’d actually rather my children grow up with characters that are more human and realistic, physically speaking. But there’s just some nostalgic 15 year old part of me that misses the flawless pretty boys and impossibly perfect badass men.
Before you start thinking I’m some shallow boy crazy housewife, I should probably point out that my husband helped me to compile this list. Which is kind of awesome or disturbing, depending on how you look at it. 😉
