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.
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 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,
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.
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.
