For those of you who were never little sisters, let me enlighten you. There are some awesome things about being a little sister. For instance, sometimes you get to hang out with your siblings older friends. Sometimes you get to use their cool stuff, like video games and consoles. And sometimes, you get tips and tricks while playing and while watching your sibling play video games to make you a better gamer during your formative childhood.
Let’s not skim over one of the worst parts about being a younger sibling though. Sometimes you never get playing time in, because you are a lower form of human life by being a younger sibling. And sometimes, when you do get to play and you’re halfway through an amazing game, your big brother finishes it before you and sells it so he can buy a new game for himself.
The list of games I’ve started and finished throughout my life is pathetically short. Why? Because in my younger days, I was a pretty slow (read: bad) gamer, and exactly what I described would happen. By getting more playing time, being faster and better at gaming, and having the prerogative to do whatever he wanted with his games, my brother would finish and sell them and more often than not, I’d come home from school one day to try and finish a game only to find it replaced with a new game.
I can thank my brother for teaching me his ways, introducing me to a wide variety of awesome games, and in general on a non-gaming note, being an awesome brother. I started this site in 2012 as a project to finally finish those classics I never got a chance to finish at my snail pace. I think I might have played half of one game before this site morphed into a general dumping ground of my video game and video game-related thoughts. I enjoy writing, I enjoy video games, and now this is my thought palace for both of those things.
Thanks a million for stopping by! If you prefer more frequent, shorter blogging, check out my Twitter handle. If you prefer watching video games, check out my Twitch channel. If you want to talk to me, there are about a million ways to do so, just peep the “Play with me!” widget on the site homepage. Thanks again!
