I am 36, with a 3 years old son, I cant wait to play games with him
but that will be complicated if he ask me
"dad, why you play as a girl in this game?"
LOL--my kids already ask me that...as does my wife.
I am 40 and am getting so nostalgic reading all of these posts--so many good memories. I grew up with all of this stuff as well and plan on continuing 'til the grave.
GTA is one of the few games that I have enjoyed online though. I get so fed up with the misogynistic and racist garbage that is constantly being spouted by punk-ass kids that have no idea what they are even saying. It can be such a buzzkill that I usually hang with my (small) crew in invite only sessions but it is very satisfying when I go open session and run into other gamers that understand how this stuff should be done--namely, play the game (even be a complete maniac if you want--it's kind of the point) but be respectful to other gamers. The rampant douchebaggery gets stale pretty quick (spawnkilling, overuse of tanks against players, personal insults).
I am on the east coast and play a few times a week. PSN name is also havok024. Hope to run into some of you all around Los Santos.
