Unwinding and Relaxing with a Video Game

Unwinding and Relaxing with a Video Game

I started playing video games at age 6. My first video game of my own was a GameBoy Color along with the "Blue" version of Pocket Monsters (or "Poke'Mon" for short). I also collect a lot of "Poke'Mon" games, too, like "Silver Version", "Gold Version", "Crystal Version", "Sapphire Version, and now my latest "Poke'Mon" game is its "Diamond Version", because I got it, along with my spanking new Nintendo DS Lite (I chose the black one because black always takes the fun out of being a helpless little girly girl that I used to be (actually, I'm a proud tomboy now). I also collect a lot of Gamecube games, from Mario to Sonic (actually, I have a lot of "Sonic the Hedgehog" games, with my favorite ones including "Sonic Riders" and "Shadow the Hedgehog"). So if I need to unwind and relax, playing video games are always a good choice for me.
