Playing For Real!

W-W-WOW! W-W-WOW! W-W-WOW!

While journeying through cyberspace at the controls of my flying laptop, something unexpected suddenly popped-on in front of me. Monstrously huge, I had no clue what it really was and worked the controller feverishly, swerving left, right, over and under but could not avoid smashing into that colossal thing. Within a nanosecond, I found myself locked in darkness except for a net-like blanket of blindingly bright pixilated light that encircled me as the completely out of control laptop accelerated before tumbling end-over-end into what I would soon discover, turned out to be: One-Big-Videogame!

BOOMP! BWAMP! WHAP! BWAMP!

Hey, wait! Stop here! Please, I don’t want you to misunderstand. You must know the truth. What you’re reading isn’t fiction. I know because it happened to me. And what’s more, it’s still happening.

And it could happen to you. We’re talking about experiencing with all your mighty know-how, practice, skill and knowledge one video game that is so intensely bizarre it can only be described as being totally insane, quite realistically out of this world although within reason as you go beyond anything and anywhere you’ve ever been. When you take on this game, you’re playing for real because here you go thru portals into big-time, challenging, unknown dimensions.

But you don’t need to take my word for it. You have to make up your own mind. I’ll make it simple. I’m just here to make friends. However, I’m also here to tell you, show you, how absolutely very important you are. It’s no joke. Maybe you know, maybe not, but the simple truth is: Planet Earth is in a humongous heap of trouble. Evil roams everywhere as bullies plot to destroy then ultimately rule the Internet, communication, yes, the entire digital universe. IMHO, there’s only one class of individuals who can best help the world.

True Gamers Unite! That’s right. True Gamers can save the planet. I’m talking about all those who know without even a shred of doubt the difference between what is real and that which is make-believe.
