Video Games – The Perfect Escape?

Video Games – The Perfect Escape?

Why oh why did you say yes to that last shandy? The kebab seemed like a good idea but your mouth now resembles the inner lining of Phil Jupiter’s underpants. And to top it all off, you’re stuck in a lava-filled dungeon and some b*****d has kidnapped your princess. Where did your life go so horribly wrong?

I’ve got news for you, it’s much, much worse. It’s not that you’re hungover playing Super Mario Brothers, it’s that you spend your life “working” at a computer located in a sterile office surrounded by drones. Your only escape?

There’s a magazine on my desk right now emblazoned with the word “hero”, if only. And whilst escapism is almost at its absolute peak (barring virtual reality), it started way back in the 80s and had as much of an impact then as it does now.

Spirit’s Seasons, A Series – Football, Episode I

 THE  PANTHER  VS   COYOTES

THE FIRST GAME of postseason play pitted the Panthers against the Coyotes. The Bobcats had the advantage of playing the winner of that contest. Billy’s team was the first to start at the 20 yard-line. In the first snap, Buddy found Blue in the end zone and just like that the score was 6-0. For the point-after-attempt Browder faked a pass and handed the ball to Red Boyd. The defense was not fooled by the fake. The Coyotes had large, strong, savvy, defensive linemen, and they met Red at the line of scrimmage and brought him down
