New User Saying Hi


Post by GamerMom » Tue Jan 30, 2018 12:32 am


This is my first time hopping into discussing video games so I apologize in advance for any poor etiquette or ignorance.

I feel being a mother of 2 boys who live video games I needed to check out their hobby and I’m finding that I really enjoy it myself lol.

Look forward to meeting everyone here!

How interesting. My own ma played video games with me sometimes when I was a kid, but not for her own sake-----------more to spend time with me, right. She'd have been happier having a catch or taking me on a nature hike, but I was into video games and Legos, and she was willing to meet me halfway.

I see you have a Nintendo Switch---------------do you have any other video game systems? What kind of games do you like?

Welcome. Glad you like gaming, I'd imagine it's a kid's dream for their parents to be into video games. It's like Christmas all year long.

Hey what's up welcome to VGF!

My mom plays video games a lot so it's not that unusual to me. Her favorite games are the Marios, the Zeldas, Goldeneye, Left 4 Dead, and the Tony Hawk games.

What kind of games do you like, GamerMom?

o hai! Both my parents appreciate video games (my dad in particular...since he was in school for his PhD in the early '90s he had quite a few floppy discs full of old Mac games. My hobby is totally his fault haha) but don't really play themselves. Old eyes and all that.

Welcome. I'm not sure my parents have ever played video games, but nowadays the market is quite broad to where there is something for just about everybody.
Competition is a good thing. It's a chance to crush people.

Thanks for the warm welcomes everyone!

To answer some questions and to give some background. My dad and my older brother played video games (Nintendo and Super Nintendo) so that’s how I got into it. Then I would play a little with boyfriends and guys that were friends in college and such. Now I have sons who are into games and it’s been fun going back to it as well. Especially since I was able to get us the mini Nintendo and Super Nintendo the last couple of years!

My favorite games right now are Mario Odyssey and the new Zelda. My oldest has started playing Monster Hunter and another Crash Bandicoot!

To answer what has been my favorite gaming moment. I love watching my middle son play- he gets so antimated it’s amazing! For the moment I also partake in is when he and I beat Ganon in Breath of the Wild

That's awesome. Back when I was younger my Mom used to play me in Primal Rage for the Super Nintendo and she would actually kick my ass. But then I would always beat her in Mario Kart 64.

Hope you enjoy VGF.

Hey, welcome to the forum! I'm also loving Odyssey, Nintendo put out some really great games this last year. Always glad to see parents interacting with their kids in their hobbies! My dad and I still chat about video games and our recent purchases/games we've beaten.
