It Happened To Me: I Can’t Stop Playing This Frickin’ Video Game

Yes, I’m aware I’m super late to the Overwatch party.

I. Can’t. Stop. You guys. Please send help.

It all started when I went on vacation a couple weeks ago. My boyfriend brought his laptop with him and he was playing a game while I was getting ready. I wanted to see what he was doing and he let me play for a bit.

Big mistake. Huge. I was hooked.

We’d be out, looking at the beautiful scenery in Lake Tahoe, and a little voice in the back of my mind would say “we should totally go back to the room to play more Overwatch.” As time progressed I got a little better, which isn’t saying much because, in ~gamer terms~, I still suck major ass at it, but it’s so fun that I honestly don’t care what my skill level is.

As luck would have it, it turns out that there’s currently a 50% sale for the game, so as soon as I got home I bought it (luckily enough, my sister is really into video games so thanks to her we have a super snazzy gaming desktop).

I swear to you guys this isn’t an ad. I would love for Blizzard to pay me to promote their shit. Pay me in Loot Boxes! I don’t even care! I just wanted to let y’all know that I’m not dead, I’m just super heavy into this video game.

I know I won’t be able to play as much when work starts again on January 2nd, but for now, I’m going back to the game. Don’t look at me. I’m disgusting. But also send me loot boxes. My ID is Goose#13380. What? Who said that? Where am I?
