I've known this guy since 3rd grade! You know the kind of friend where you don't call to see what's going on that night because no matter what you'll be the first to call IF something comes up. The guy that was with me when I tell new friends of all the crazy stories from growing up or when we were young adults (college years).
I have been in touch with him on and off for a few years but he had no car and lived in the city. He comes back home and it's been awesome. Telling our stories to others and catching up. When we were kids all we did was play Street fighter, mortal combat and eventually Quake 3 on PC. I mean if I ever had a friend that loved any and all gaming it should be him. He pops over and has absolutely no interest in my machine. Not even "i'll play a ball" just out of curiosity. Just a lecture about how the new Gears of war is about to come out (it's out now). Instead of coming over, having a few beers and playing some pinball he'd rather me buy an X-box that I don't have knowing a new system is coming for this coming Christmas. The best part is his argument is that we can both be home and play. I love shooters. I had a long quake 3 addiction. I mean like wake up at 5 am to pee and deciding to play till 10 am type of addiction. WHY CAN'T MY FRIEND PLAY PINBALL!
I even told him to come where I play in my league because they have all the old fighting arcade games he would go broke using when we were kids. Nah, he wanted to know if they have x-box or ps3. I don't expect him to LOVE pinball and be obsessed in an instant. It just doesn't make any sense that he has absolutely no interest in even ONE PLUNGE!
