Okay, you can laugh at me for not knowing but I really didn’t know that age-restricted competition for video games actually exist. Not until my husband told me about a Counter-Strike competition for men 30 years above, that’s right — I didn’t know. LOL Apologies.
So Tim’s cousins and friends participated in the said event at Ground Zero, Xentro Mall, Antipolo last December 1st. I might have mentioned it a bit in my previous post. He would have participated but he’s way too young to enter.
The first few hours were so uneventful, I gobbled down a huge glass of iced coffee, and a couple glasses of Sangria much to Tim’s (slight) disappointment since he left his tab open. Haha! I’m not even sorry about it, he did tell me to just order what I want and that’s exactly what I did till the championship in the early evening.
Now, I wasn’t watching Tim’s friends and cousins play all day but during the championship, I got so curious that I joined Tim and his cousin’s wife and kids inside the glass game room. It was so intense and the trash-talking was so surreal it was more than entertaining–it was hilarious!
The match got so intense, that I asked Tim to go out of the game room for a while just to get some air. I know I’m not playing and I guess I’m so glad I wasn’t because I cannot handle that much pressure in a game. Haha! But difficult, intense, and long as it was, Tim’s cousins and friends brought home the bacon!
I played Counter-Strike a few times when I was younger, but thought it was too difficult and the first-person angle made me feel really dizzy so I never played it again. Kayo, anong games nilalaro ninyo lately?
