There are only a few games that I get hooked on, but when I do you can forget seeing or communicating with me until the game has been completed.
I was recently introduced to Skylanders Giants.

What took me so long to find this game?!
And yes, I recognize that this put me in league with a host of 10 year old boys. I'm okay with that.
Admittedly, this isn't one that I would have just picked up off of the shelf myself - the whole portal thing and having to have actual figurines to go along with the game... I would not have thought it to be my cup of tea. Well, I was wrong. I tried it recently at a friend's house and I have been obsessed ever since.
I've been playing on their game, but I'm going to have to break down and just go get one of my own. I want to play it always (or at least while the kids are napping, and after they go to bed). Not only do I want to play it always, but I also want to get my own figures because I want to be able to level my characters up myself. Sharing them kind of takes the fun out of it, at least for a geek like me because part of the fun of playing a game is getting all of the upgrades, extras and hidden things. I need to be able to upgrade them on my own.
I haven't caved to getting it yet, but I don't know that I will last the weekend without picking it up.
In other news... when did it get to be Friday?!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
