"Look... I have had enough of your stupid computer games!!! You spend 8 hours a day in this smokey cybercafe and no time with me!!! You are going to have to choose. Counter-strike or ME!!! You can't have both!!! SO PICK NOW!!"
When one of my ex-girlfriends asked me that before she became my ex, I knew that computer games had become a HUGE part of my life.
My answer to her was
And I went back to looking at my screen...
I'm going to write about My Favourite Computer Game of All time because there's this Samsung contest going on at Nuffnang and I am hoping that Samsung would allow me to win the 32" LCD TV so I could put it in our new KL office and buy a Wii with it!!!
But haih.. again because I am who I am.... I'm sure I'm not gonna win.
Though I'm gonna do it anyway because I like writing about computer games.
Now my favourite computer game of all time is......... wait for it... wait for it.... wait for it....
WHO REMEMBERS THIS CUTE LITTLE GAME?!?!?
How can you ever forget a game with two cute little baby dinosaurs shooting out bubbles from their mouth and baddies and popping them to kill the baddies!!!
I was in Primary school when I discovered Bubble Bobble, and it was the very first game that I was truly addicted to for the longest time.
I've played it so much that I can still even remember the music from the game.
Any of you remember?
It goes something like this
"Tuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh"... okay fine a bit hard to humm that song with words but you get the idea.
Now Bubble Bobble is not the first game I was ever addicted to, but the first time a computer game got me in trouble.
Because I was so addicted to it, I never studied or did any of my school homework so much that my mum had to ban me from computer games on weekdays.
Ish, not like banning computer games would make me study anyway, I would have had rather watched grass grow than do homework.
But one day after school, I came home to see my old computer on the table, all lonely without any lights on. And the Bubble Bobble game music hummed in my ears.. seriously.. it's like it was tempting me.
So I didn't care I just went to play anyway. I played until I lost track of time and the next thing I know, my mum had arrived home from work and was standing behind me watching me play.
She said in a very angry tone
And I sheepishly said
I mean how could I lie right?
Then the next thing I know, she brought out the cane and whooped my ass till Kingdom Come.... and when my dad came home she told my dad too.. who again whooped my ass till England Come!
At the end of the day, my ass was so pink from the caning it looked very much like a baboon's butt.
And that my dear friends, is the first time a computer game got me in trouble.
So after hearing that... choosing CS over a girl doesn't seem like such a big deal after all right?
Nah let me show you all how Bubble Bobble is like.
Watch this video!
This is the Nintendo or something version... yes Bubble Bobble I think started off as an arcade game then only later adapted to the computer or something.
