Whenever I’m back home in Connecticut at my parent’s house, I immediately regress back into ridiculousness. I can no longer do simple tasks without whining about them first. I can’t seem to cook or clean for myself. It’s weird. To complement my overall laziness, I also stare at the television for an incredible amount of time. To break up that routine a little, at night, I watch my brother play video games since I have absolutely no interest in participating myself. (Because I only like to win at things, including life, gaming makes this a little harder for me to do. Basically, I suck.)
Recently when I was home for my dad’s birthday, I watched my brother play about five hours of Final Fantasy 8. I’m dead serious. I don’t actually like watching him play, but I literally have nothing else to do, so I just sit there as he talks to himself about his “game plan” and works his way up each level.
Despite how I feel about video games, watching video games, and not playing video games, I respect their millions of fans simply for the fact that they entertain me when I bored. As a gift to you, the gamer, I present you with free extended audiobook excerpts from the season’s most popular fantasy audiobooks including A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin (season 2 of the HBO hit premiered on April 1), Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Outcast by Aaron Allston (The final audiobook in the series Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse went on sale March 13), and Double Dexter by Jeff Lindsay. You can download them here.
Now entertain me!
