The Confessions of a Closet Gamer


Yes it is true, I am a closet gamer. I’m not saying that being a gamer is a bad thing. In fact it is a very good thing and I love this little hobby of mine! It’s just that it is something that a lot of people don’t know about me, and I think that is partially because of the nerdy, geeky stigma that a gamer chick gets. Also because it’s really seen as a hobby for guys generally.
 So yes I am a gamer, but my gamer tag is only limited to one game, and my game of choice is ‘The Sims 3’!
I’m ashamed to say that this particular game developed into quite an addiction for me! I could easily spend hours and hours playing this game. My addition even reached a point where I had a blog dedicated to the stories and lives of the Sims in my game!
I have slowly weened myself off this game as it had been taking up quite a large chunk of my spare time, however there is something very dangerous looming over the horizon…..
The launch of ‘The Sims 4’ in 2014!! 

I just know it is going to suck me in again! It is hard to explain the hold that ‘The Sims’ has on me. Maybe it is the fact that I can make pretty people, like virtual barbie dolls. Or maybe it is the intricate stories and drama I can create much like a sitcom, developed and controlled by me. Or maybe it’s the community and connections I had made in the Sims 3 community by sharing all of my fabulous Sims creations and stories with fellow Sims lovers. All of these things and more are the reasons why I love the Sims and have been an avid player of this game since it came out over 10 years ago!
So that is my confession! Are you a closet gamer? What is your game of choice?

I'm not a gamer. I stay right away from all that cause I know I'd get sucked in!

I'm not a gamer but I do like to play now and then 'The Sims' at the minute I got 'The Sims 2' but want to get 3.
The Sims 4, very interesting. I wonder what new stuff there's going to be in the game.

I'm a bit of a closet gamer as well! No one would ever know coming to my blog but I love a good video game (my favorites are Unreal Tournament and Little Big Planet). Recently we've been trying out different board and card games - some of the coolest ones can be found at comic book stores and we've been enjoying them.

I won't lie, I can be a gamer from time to time. I use to get so hooked on the hidden objects games that I wouldn't sleep until I beat a level. I might just have to play the Sims 4. :)

sims 4 is coming!?!?!

I have a bit of a confession - I never really liked sims 3. I was obsessed with sims 2 and it changed just too much for me :p You'll have to tell me what sims 4 is like! Lately I've been soooo obsessed with candy crush... :s
