Even though I'm working as usual, it's still really nice to be out at the beach. I get to see family while I'm here, which makes the trip quite worth it. I also get to sneak in some time at the pool and in the ocean. Doesn't get much better than that! I hope you guys are all having a wonderful week as well, no matter where you are or what you're doing. See you in a few, short hours!
As many of you may know, I am currently on a family vacation in North Carolina. I've been taking this same vacation for just about 20 years now. My Mom's side of the family all gets together and rents a house at the shore for a week. Yes, we actually all get along well enough to live together for 7 days...and have a blast doing so!
I'm also very lucky to have a bunch of gamers in my family. My cousins are all into video games, boys and girls alike. Before we head out for the big trip, we each figure out who's going to bring what systems and games. We spend our days swimming and kicking back on the beach, but at night we play some games. Of course, being the Nintendo guy, I'm more than happy to bring along my Wii.
This time around I'm getting the pleasure of watching my cousin's kids tackle The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. My one cousin's kid just started playing it today. Seeing the game from the start yet again brought back a rush of fantastic memories. I can't wait to see him experience all the amazing stuff that's waiting ahead.
As I watch, I try to decide if I like playing the game more myself or watching someone play through. When I have a game that I truly love, it makes me so happy to see another person experience that fun. Of course, The Legend of Zelda series ranks high up in my list of must-play games, so watching this Skyward Sword playthrough makes me absolutely giddy.
Do you enjoy watching others play games? Do you want them to play games you enjoy, or are you open to watching any games? Would you rather watch than play? Leave a comment and let us know.
