Linking up once more with Geek Fitness and his #FitGeekFriday linkup!
Today's topic is "Let The Games Begin!"
My gaming history started back when my dad brought home a shiny new Atari 2600 in 1982. I spent many, many hours playing games like Centipede, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, Breakout, Space Invaders and Combat.

Eventually my gaming progressed to being obsessed with the Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Mario Bros., Burger Time. My absolute most favorite game ever of this era was Bubble Bobble though.
I didn't really get back into gaming that much until I had my daughter. Around the age of 3 for her, my then husband and I got a Sega Genesis. And with it a few games that Devyn would like (mainly Toy Story... she was obsessed with playing that game!) so Dev and I spent a lot of time playing a few video games. Around this time of course, ex and I were about to become exes for realsies so I didn't really start playing anything again until I met and started dating Chris.
Chris and I met in August of 2000. By Christmas he was basically kinda sorta living with me. As a Christmas gift for us he bought a Playstation 2. He literally stalked the poor mail man until the moment it arrived. I knew at that moment (and among other things) that I had met the man I was meant to be with. Oh the gaming that we did! Anything and everything. Gauntlet, Devil May Cry, Final Fantasy, Grand Theft Auto, etc.. Oh and Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds. Not long after we bought Devyn a gamecube. She was and still is obsessed with Pikman! After the PS2 and GameCube, we briefly got an XBox but that didn't last too long. We are Playstation people through and through!

And now that brings us to present day.
We only have a PS3 and a PS4 now. Our poor little laptop won't hold any computer games either. Since the dawn of streaming content, our game time has worn down to just a few hours on the weekends. Chris and I do play a good bit of Minecraft and Diablo III together. Solo lately, Chris tends to go with Destiny and I usually like to play DragonAge: Inquisition.
We also find time to play board games and role playing from time to time such as Munckin or pen and paper Dungeons and Dragons.
But.. what's different now versus how it all was before. Yes, I do still play, but my first priority isn't the game itself but make sure that I am taken care of first before the playstation is even turned on. I get my workout done or I don't play. Simple as that!
Are you a gamer? What do you play?
