Modern Warfare & Me

I’ll be honest with you, nothing’s impressive about going 18-9. Sure, a 2.00 K:D is cool, but it’s not spectacular. Still, I often feel that the end result isn’t as great as the experience and journey getting there.¬†

Modern Warfare¬†and I go way back, being introduced to by my old housemate in college, but I really didn’t really get into it until Modern Warfare 2. It was a much more accessible and fluid, if not broken, game. My most memorable game was one on Rundown with my fellow co-workers from Apple. Unfortunately there’s no game footage, but I did take this picture with my crappy iPhone 3G afterwards because it was so amazing. I want to make it clear that I was in no way the best player on our team, but in the words of Bruce Lee “If I tell you I am good, I would be boasting. But if I tell you I’m no good, you know I’m lying.”

The game was very neck-and-neck. Kills went back and forth with no particular player dominating. I personally hated Ground War because it’s way too chaotic, spawning is awkward, and it’s far too easy to go negative. Still, our party was large and we had few options.

I thought we were going to lose and I’m pretty sure before I hit my memorable streak, I was 3-9 and hating my life. But with it winding down I unlocked a Predator Missile after killing 5 guys with my always trusty ACR. I killed 2 with that. Here comes my Attack Helicopter. Was the tide turning? 5 more kills from the Attack Helicopter. You hear that? The Pave-Low came in hot. The sky was filled with the sounds of gunfire and air crafts. Before I knew it: We won. The game winning kill? My Pave-Low. I was in disbelief, I received the “Transformer” title and the respect of my colleagues. Sure, anyone can go 18-9. But does everyone get shocked and amazed as I did? Probably not.

For fun, here’s another ridiculously silly game winning kill I got in Modern Warfare 3. I assure everyone: This was a total accident. I got the “Stickman” title for doing this.

I don’t know the first thing about getting a girlfriend. But I can assure you, if I had one, I wouldn’t lose her over doing something ridiculous, like Andy Murray who played video games. For 7 hours a day.

Murray, the No. 4 ranked player in the world, was dumped by his long-time girlfriend Kim Sears due, in part, to the fact that he spent up to seven hours a day playing video games.”

Kim Sears was a freaking catch too. I would see her at Andy’s tennis match and be like, wow, how did he land that gorgeous broad? Maybe he impressed her with his video gaming skills. But seriously, should he fondle breasts, or try to get all the achievements in Modern Warfare 2? Tough situation, huh? Well, now he has even more time to play pretend tennis on his Playstation 3.
