Well, Hits and Misses is proud to have a multi-faceted personality on board. To tell about this blogger, she is creative in her posts and argues well with everyone to make her point clear. May be its the nature of her profession! As her blog's About Me says, she is an A Lawyer(Oh yes, she is!), an avid reader and a learning blogger (Already she is a well renowned writer who is adored by everyone.. If you don't believe me ask Guria of MM.). A wonderful friend of mine. The Lawyer and The blogger is none other than Neha Thakkar Silam of Neha's Blog. Infact, she wrote this article a month back. But I misplaced the article and found it minutes back on my writer. Sorry Girl! Oh yeah, I forgot about her name. Neha was re-christened as Nehatrix and some call her Neha-full-of-trix. Now off to the article..
Well, all you hopeful souls, I am not going to give you the name of sites from where you can download various games for free; nor I am going to talk about only Farmville here! But I am going to write about my experiences with these games and gamers.
Virtual game plays a role of “other woman” in my life guys! Yeah I am not exaggerating here at all; for my husband is hooked to it more than anything or anyone else (read ‘me’) around him. He has a huge collection of different racing games and cricket. And I wonder; what’s there in it that people forget everything when the joystick or the mouse is there in their hands. And those few dedicated gamers – their bodies take left and right turn with the car they are controlling. And shit follows way too often; that too orally!
And there goes Cricket – Cricket 2004, 2005, 2008, Ashes, Brian Lara and such; with various tournaments, T20, test matches, customized player option, cheering crowd, commentary by Tony Graig, and again those oral shits! Those who are reading me for the first time; here is a news for you – strange but true; I am a jinx for our Indian Cricket team. Whenever I have seen any match played by India, India has lost! It is true people. I have tried a lot to watch it thinking it is just a coincidence and India has lost each time! Hey don’t get up from your seat and leave to hunt for me; for I have long back stopped watching our matches live! Why I mentioned it here – well my power works in case of virtual games too. Whenever my dear husband is playing cricket on PC and I enter the room or I look at the monitor, his team loses the wicket or the opposite team hits a four or six; or his team drops the catch! Now a days he seldom plays cricket in front of me; but NFS is still going strong.
Then there is Farmville these days! There are other games too, but none as popular as Farmville. People beg friends to send them trees, pigs, goats, decorations and such other things. The status messages beg too; so does the phone calls. Even blogs are full of Farmville posts. Don’t believe me? Well Contact Kaddu and Shilpa. They have forbidden me from commenting on their posts on Farmville as I don’t play that game anymore! Sigh, these games are taking away my right of freedom of speech!
I simply dislike these games as you tend to run behind them; they make you an addict; you even ignore your better half on holidays! Don’t you all girls think that the cricket and racing games should be banned? And don’t you all guys think that Farmville should be banned? Rest of you who play both; well do I need to say what is to be banned?
Oh one thing I forgot to mention. It’s me who has gifted all those game CDs and DVDs as gifts to my husband!
