Children & Video Games.




Last year (October to be exact) I did a poll on twitter asking my follows "Should parents refrain from letting their kids play over 18 games if they're under 18" now before people go on to me about how 18 is an adult and they can do as they please, I chose that age as I have followers from all around the world who live in countries with different laws when it comes to age. I had lots of different responses to this topic which I was hoping for, The overall amount of people in the poll said that parents should refrain from this, for me it's one of those questions that have more than one right answer, I'm not a parent but growing up my parents didn't mind us playing violent games, but to an extent and by that I mean games such as crash bandicoot, Spyro, street fighter, Pokemon stadium and tomb raider (which were the main games we played), my parents didn't mind as the games didn't have any effect on us and we weren't that impressionable so things like that wouldn't make us want to fight other people.

Throwback Thursday | Tomb Raider


James and I have been going through his collection of games, he has a big and mixed collection which are old and new, one of my friends had the great idea that now and then I can do a throwback Thursday a bit like the posts I do on Instagram except with games from James's collection so I decided I may as well give it a shot. I'm going to go with one of James's favourite games for the first throwback Thursday and one of the games I was too scared to play too much because of how bad I was. Tomb Raider was one of the main games I remember my older sister Stefi playing, she used to help me a lot if I played it because I was useless at it and spent most of my time locking the butler (Winston Smith) in the freezer and running around the house and grounds to try the obstacle course.

What Genre Games do I like?



Let's talk about different types of video games and which kind are my favourite to play, there are a huge variety of games when it comes to this, I'm not that great of a player and tend to stick to games that I know I can play without getting too frustrated but now and then I do like to push myself and see if I can try a game that I wouldn't normally play. I just want you all to keep in mind that not everyone will like the same genre but that doesn't make them any less of a player than you.


First up PvP Games


PvP stands for player vs player, it's where you and another player will fight against each other and kill each other online, games where you play against a computer controlled opponent won't be known as PvP, this will be  known as PVE (play vs equipment) I prefer to play PvP as I'm playing against real people and it feels a lot more competitive for me. One of my favourite games for this would have to be Destiny, I have been playing it since day one and I couldn't not play it seeing as it came with my PS4. within destiny there is a lot that you can do, I have exhausted a lot of the game and it can be repetitive but I do enjoy playing Crucible, my favourite game from the crucible options would have to be control, I love having to fight over players to capture a zone.

The Girl With All The Gifts.





It's been a while since I've seen a good serious zombie movie, I think the last one I watched was world war Z even when I first started watching it I didn't have high hopes for it but I was proven wrong. Last year I saw the trailer for the movie the girl with all the gifts, the title made it sound more like a fantasy movie and I do love fantasy but in was pleasantly surprised to find out it was, in fact, a thriller. The movie is based on a bunch of kids inside a testing facility, they don't have much of a life and spend most of it in a cell or strapped in wheelchairs, this does sound cruel but the reason behind it make sense. These children are special and could hold the cure for the human race who have been wiped out by some kind of zombie fungus, this fungus makes humans crave anything living (even cats and dogs)the fungus takes over the human body and turns them into a shell of themselves. The main character in this movie is called Melanie she is one of the children in the facility, unlike other humans who are affected by the fungus, Melanie isn't a shell of herself and acts like a normal human, in order for the children to be controlled and not turn into their zombie state the people not affected by the fungus wear a blocker which stops the smell of humans.
