My name is Eric Epperson. I am 24 years old. I have a mortgage. I am a college graduate. I have kissed a girl. Yet, with all of these accomplishments under my belt, each proving that I am an adult, I still enjoy video games. It is an addiction that I can not shake. It is a stain so deep in my genetic make up that I can not rid myself of it. Since I was a young boy video games have been a part of my life. New games filled my stocking, my birthday wish list, and conversations. They say you grow out of most things. I used to have lines shaved in the side of my head. I had my ear pierced in high school. I once owned a Boys II Men CD. Yet through all of these changes, I still play video games. Maybe I enjoy the release. It sure is nice to be able to partake in a mindless activity while the wife watches some show on TV about fast-talking women . Maybe, just maybe, I play them because they take me back to my childhood. Whatever the case may be, we are 17 days away from the release of the Playstation 3. Game on.
