Evenings these days

Ever since my roomie got his laptop our daily evenings are packed with action. As soon as I reach home from the office, somebody would have already started it. In the initial days racing on the F1 track along with the likes of Michael Schumacher, Kimi Raikonnen, and Alonso gripped us. Even if you are not able to keep your car going on the track at high speeds, you can generate some entertainment by running into opponents cars and making them flying into pieces. And after winning three straight championships, the last one with the Minardi, we gave up.

Then came the Age of Kings and Age of Conquerors and since then everybody has become an emperor. The fever gripped so much for the few days that our rooms changed into town center, puja-room into monastery, objects in the rooms intounits, music system and television into siege weapons, entering into anothers room was invading others territory.

Somewhere deep down in our mind lays a feeling to win, a feeling to prove your point. So what if you can not race in the real world, the games give you that freedom to prove, some satisfaction by bashing up others. The evenings could not get better than this.
