Hey guys, Alex here. Uh, I have not played
a video game in well over a decade. I don’t know why, really. . . I guess I just figured
my time would be better spent taking improv classes. . . I got a Journalism degree, I
developed a web series that is currently in purgatory, and I just built up my brand (which
I guess could be characterized as me just failing at, uh, prototyping, uh, The New Face
of Millennial Narcissism). And, uh, yeah I’m just a pseudo intellectual who failed to find
a foothold in the culture at large, so I figured, uh, now would be a good time to try. . . this.
. . the video ga. . . the video game stuff. You know? I probably missed the bus, but I
might as well try. The only thing I can lose is time, and I’ve already done that so. . . yeah,
let’s do this. I’m going to start out small and build myself up to more sophisticated
games. I’m going to do “Snake.” It’s something I remember playing on the school bus back
in middle school, on my phone. And uh, yeah, so enjoy. I’m gonna start with. . . I’m gonna
start with slug I think. If this isn’t engaging please feel free to read this piece by, uh,
Sheila Eugenio, on the 8 cognitive benefits of gaming. I already feel better. . . I feel.
. . Alright, so the score is 354. I’m going to enter my name here. I’ll just go Alex.
Alright, so Ihave a ways to go, but, uh, let’s try again. I’m gonna try two hands. I . . . I
already feel myself getting a little quicker . . . here. Alright, uh. 694. Cool, so if
you enjoyed my first installment, uh, please subscribe to my twitch account. I’ll be posting
videos on there and we can gauge my improvement. Um, my avatar is Shia LaBeouf’s face, but
my face is kind of . . . it’s a growth on his face; it’s obscuring his, uh, right eyeball.
So. . . uh yeah, subscribe to that and, uh, I’ll see you next time.
