“Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation” one of those limited editions that only had 10 levels. Yeah it exist, I still own it in fact. I remember sitting down with him, as I always did, to watch him play his video game. I remember thinking it looked pretty neat. The more I watched him, the more I wanted to play it. A while later he brought home the first original Tomb Raider game. I always loved watching Dad play video games. So I sat and watched him play it, some thing about the game just struck me. I fell in love with the game from that point on. I started playing it myself and I was super excited when my dad brought home Tomb Raider 3 and Chronicles. Course there were parts in the game that got to be too hard for me, so I would run to my dad and be like: “Can you help me get past this part?” He then told me after a several hundred times, “If you can’t do it yourself then stop playing the game.” Haha, Dad got tired of playing the game for me. So that’s when I spent just about every moment on the computer playing these games in order to beat them. And finally I did, I beat the first one, TR3, the 10 level demo version of TR4 and chronicles. I was ready for more, course it took me several years to obtain the others in the series but when I did the wait was well worth it. I have beaten Tomb Raider’s 1-8 including Anniversary. I have yet to obtain the new 2013 Tomb Raider Reboot, as I do not have an operating system that can handle it. But I watched it on youtube and I have to say holy… It looks awesome. I am so excited about the new one “Rise of the Tomb Raider” … That’s a story for another time. My point is, I use to have a misconception of these video games. I perceived them incorrectly by barely even a glance. Now I am so obsessed, I own Tomb Raider’s 1-8, Anniversary TR1 gold, TR2, Gold, and TR3 gold. I even try to imitate Lara by wearing similar outfits, growing my hair out like her, I have the Angel of Darkness sunglasses, even just bought me a backpack at Target the other day just because it reminded me of Lara. The game I once thought was stupid is now my biggest obsession. Same went for Lord of the rings; when I saw the trailers I thought “Only nerds and geeks are going to see that. Lonely nerdy boys and girls who can’t get laid will go see it.” … Yeah that was horrible I know, but I was only joking … Sort of … I sat down one day and watched tv with my dad … Yeah I’m seeing a pattern here, it’s always dad’s fault I get into shit. hehe I’m a daddy’s girl, I do and like the same stuff he does. Anyways, he was watching the second movie “The two towers” yet again, a familiar pattern arose, I found myself falling in love. I even fell in love with the Blonde elf known as Legolas. Ahh Orlando Bloom! You are wonderful! I then had to see more! I bought all 3 movies and from then on … Guess what? … Yup I was obsessed. Yet when I found out it was actually a book, I was reluctant to read it. I thought “I’ve already seen the movie, I don’t need to read the book.” Cut to a few years later, I now have the books (Lord of the Rings, The hobbit, The Simarillion, and The return of the Shadow), I have the Battle for middle-earth games 1 and 2, I even play Lord of the Rings online. I created my own Elven character with a long family history. (I’ll post that later for y’all) And I even am learning to speak elvish. I am fluent in the written elvish script called Tengwar. Heck my current website theme is Tolkien/Elvish based. Haha! So it just goes to show you can not judge a book by it’s cover alone! The two things I use to think were stupid are now my greatest obsessions of all time. Guess that makes me one of those nerds/geeks that can’t get laid. HAHA!]]>
