I’ve Become A Hardcore Gamer

 It’s cold and wet outside. There is a pandemic. So, in the spirit of trying to keep current and pass time I downloaded Assassin’s Creed Valhalla onto my computer.

As this is my second video game in a decade, I am entitled required to declare that I am a hardcore gamer.

I told this to my family who barely looked up from their devices.

What got the kid convinced that civilization was ending was when I told him I had read a review about the game in the New York Times.

Elsewhere I read that one could play the game in “Dad Mode” and not have the action be a non-stop gore fest. Whatever. Perhaps a gore fest could be cathartic.
