I like our PS4. I mostly use it to watch movies. Same with my family. We have a few games for it that I have played from time to time. My wife is killer at “Dig Dug” classic. But I don’t game like I once did. That is now for a younger generation. Mostly my son. So I guess the PS4 is more his than anyone else’s. Just don’t let him know.
My 12 year old son plays the game “Fortnite” on the PS4. I’m okay with this. It’s a poplar game and he wants to keep up with his friends at school. Nothing worse than being the “NOOB” at any game. He is pretty good at it… I think. I have also allowed him to play “Call of Duty” and a few others of the same style. He knows that I’ll sit and watch him play. We finally bought him a headset so that I don’t hear him anymore when I’m not in the room.
Last night I dropped him off at a birthday party sleepover. The boys there were already playing Fortnite. My son marched in and smack talk was in full swing. The plan was for some gaming overnight and then in the morning off to try some paintball!
I’m excited for my son to try paintball for the first time. Nothing like the thrill of trying not to get shot by a marble sized pellet that explodes. I think he’s in for a world of hurt by the end of it. I was about his age when I first tried paintball. Come to think of it- that was the only time I tried paintball. Because I sucked.
We shall see how my son fares. Maybe he will be better at it than I was. My strategy was to use all my paintballs quickly and just keep firing. In first person shooter video games- I tend to “run’n’gun”. Not a good plan. I also do that in all of my nerf wars and water gun fights. I’m the target practice by the end it seems.
I can’t wait to hear about my son’s adventures. Hopefully he has a blast and doesn’t just get blasted away like his old man did.
