Since Wii has been released, the BF has wanted to buy one. I really thought we would get one this Christmas because he bought one for his cousins, but we didn't end up buying one after all.
He still has his PS2 that is hooked up to the non-HD TV in the bedroom. Every now and then, he will rent a video game and play it nonstop for two weeks straight. He loses interest and then stops playing.
Well, he found some new Tiger Woods game and has been playing it for the last week. It's a pretty funny sight because I'm sitting in bed reading and he's playing along as Tiger Woods. (I do have a picture and some funny video clips, but he won't let me post them because he's not wearing a shirt. I'll have to catch him when he's not looking again. It's priceless commentary!)
Anyway, you can change your player to look like you and he's convinced it does.
BF: Allison, Don't you think he looks like me? (pointing to the TV screen)
Me: Looking away from my book, "Um, no not really."
BF: Flabbergasted by my reaction, "WHATTTT?"
Me: "BF, it's an avatar. It doesn't really look like you."
BF: "But I gave him a hat and his hair kinda looks like mine."
Me: Amusing him for the last time, "Nope. Sorry. I still don't see the resemblance."
The other night he won the tournament and bought his avatar new Converse shoes and an outfit. He said he wanted to wake me up to celebrate his faux winnings. I'm glad he didn't because I would've killed the kid. Waking up your girlfriend because you won a PS2 tournament? Not worthy of a wake up.
The BF also does this bob and weave dance when he's playing, especially if the music comes up. He even makes up words to the songs sometimes. Like if I ask him a question, he'll sing his answer along with the music.
My next task is to catch him on tape with a shirt on. Although the video may be littered with a few F-bombs because when his avatar misses a put, you better believe there are F-bombs flying all over the place.
Who knew a video game could do all that?
