Ice Breaker – Video Game Day!


Most weeks on The Stretched Blog, I ask an ice breaker question on Fridays. The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community. I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments. While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

Today is Video Game Day!  Today’s Ice Breaker question is inspired by this special holiday.

Question:  What is your favorite video game?

My Answer:  I remember playing Pong.  I remember playing games on systems like Atari 2600, Commodore 64, ColecoVision, Intellivision, and Nintendo.  I played games like Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, River Raid, Spy Hunter, Carnival, and Test Drive.  I also remember playing arcade games at the mall.  I played games like Turbo, Dragon’s Lair, and Centipede.  Now, I’m hooked on games like Clash of Clans, Words with Friends, and Boom Beach.

If I had to play a video game over and over again for days and days, I’d probably go with NBA Jam.  When I was in college at Grove City College, my roommate and I could often be found outside the Geedunk feeding quarters into the NBA Jam machine on our way to beating all the NBA duals.  I might be a millionaire today if I has simply invested the money spent on this game instead of “wasting” it on hours of virtual basketball.  Instead, I have phrases from the game like “Boom Chackalacka” and “He’s On Fire” that reverberate in my head from time to time.  Oh well!
