My Geek Confessions

Gamerwife posted a geek confessions post and it’s catching like wildfire! I’ve loved reading other peoples (and learning I’m not alone in some of mine!) so here are my biggest geek confessions.

lotr

I know, I know, they should just revoke my geek license right now. To be honest, I have zero good reasons for not reading these. I OWN THEM for pete’s sake. I’ve just never actually read them! I read The Hobbit when I was twelve, but never as an adult. In high school I adored the movies when they came out (still do), but I’ve just never gotten around to reading the actual books.

blade runner

Blade Runner is one of those movies that I just feel like everyone BUT me has seen, especially in the geek community. When I was younger, I was really never that in to sci-fi. I was always a fantasy girl. As a late teen I started falling for sci-fi a little bit thanks to shows like Farscape. But I never got around to seeing this, and still haven’t,

elderscrolls

Oh, the Elder Scrolls games. I should like them. They are considered by many to be the cream of the crop for realistic fantasy RPGs. And yet, I just can’t get into them. It makes no sense, even to me. I tried really hard to love Morrowind, and I just didn’t. So I didn’t bother with either Oblivion or Skyrm. I enjoy watching them (I watched the hubs play both Oblivion and Skyrim and that was super fun!) but playing them myself just isn’t my cup of tea.

walking dead

Yet another show I absolutely should love. I love pretty much zombie anything. I love horror. Gore doesn’t bother me. But I found this show to be stupid from the first five minutes. I couldn’t get over how he magically survived in that hospital despite the fact that everyone else got eaten/dead. Or that in so many cases people make the worst decisions ever. Everyone told me, ‘Just get to Season 2, it’s so much better!’. So I kept watching. And for me, it never improved.

    Hehe I don’t like the walking dead either… My husband loves it though. I’m just not that into zombies. The only zombie movie that has ever caught my attention was Scooby Doo on Zombie Island. Haha

    Totally not into The Walking Dead, but my husband and all my friends are. I’ve never seen bladerunner and didn’t know it was a thing. >_< loved seeing your geeky confessions

    I don’t like The Walking Dead either! I watched the first few episodes on Netflix, and I just don’t see what’s so awesome about it. The Elder Scrolls are a big deal around here…the only time I have ever stood in line at midnight (in the cold!) to buy a game was for Skyrim. It was like a holiday at our house. 😉 Grace has been kickin’ it old school lately and playing Oblivion again….I don’t think she’ll ever know or appreciate the fun of Morrowind on the PC.

    I don’t think you should feel any shame from anything in your list, by the way. No nerd has done *all* of the nerdy things! 🙂

      Thanks! Nah, definitely no shame here. You’re definitely right; I feel not everyone can be a nerd about ALL THE THINGS. . .that’d just be too much!! I think the only thing I feel the slightest bit of shame for is still not yet reading the Lord of the Rings trilogy. . .there’s just no excuse when I have the books sitting right on my bookshelf haha!

    Yeah, we tried with Walking Dead but it just never really grabbed me. And don’t feel bad about Lord of the Rings. I never read them either. 😉

    I’ve never read LOTR either! I’ve read the Hobbit a few times, and I love all the movies, but I’ve never managed to get past the first book every time I try. I just can’t get myself to commit.

  6. Fiona says:

    Love your confessions, I’ve never read LOTR and stopped halfway through The Hobbit – I love the films but the books are daunting. I played Oblivion and Skyrim before Morrowind and they are miles better (I don’t really get Morrowind but I appreciate its existence)

    A friend of the family loaned The Hobbit to me in middle school. Couldn’t get past the first chapter. Wasn’t until this last year that I finally read it. I’ve got a complete set of the books, and started my way through LotR… but I’m really struggling with Two Towers… Eventually I’ll hunker down with it and finish it all… but, not just yet.
