Like many other kids growing up in a technologically-developing era, I spent a chunk of my youth (6th grade to middle school) playing video games. I probably played Half Life and its many Mods the most, which included Counter-Strike (especially hacking in it, don’t hate). Once Half Life phased out a bit, I remember getting into the Battlefield series with 1942. However, my gaming was on a steady decline through high school, and once I started college, my interest in the subject nearly flat lined. I would pick up a few games to try now and then, but it was hard to really get into them. I found that I would get bored very easily.
Although I may have lost touch with gaming, it was still a pastime so I figured I’d play homage to it in the form of Battlefield 3. This is literally the first game I’ve personally purchased (with money) since Battlefield 2 in 2005. We’ll see how it goes, if this game’s experience is anything like it was with its predecessor, it will be interesting enough. I really hope I don’t end up dropping this game after an hour like I do with so many others (I paid $50 for a digital copy, when did games get so expensive?!)… I’m also curious if my 3 year old refurbished Gateway will even run it.
Anyway, if anybody out there is reading this and also pre-ordered Battlefield 3, add me on Origin! My username is Termignoni (Akrapovic was taken)

Oh yeah, and if you’ve preloaded the game like me with the files sitting on your computer, waiting to be unlocked on the 25th… you can try VPN’ing to a Korean server and unlock the game a day early.
