Although it is hard to believe, I have been a gamer for over 25 years. Starting on the Commodore 64 in the early 90s, moving onto a Windows 95 machine, first console experience with the first Playstation, and all the way through the modern consoles, mobile phones to desktop gaming.

It has been quite a ride and one of the games that has really stuck with me was Counter-Strike, which originally came out in 2000. Although the modern incarnation of that game is still being played, I still have very fond memories of playing the game with my buddies in LAN gaming bars.

And today, a random ad on Facebook reminded just how old I am to know the game so well. I saw the following ad for a mobile shooter:

I have downloaded the Pixel Gun 3D game but haven’t really had time to play around with it. Maybe I will enjoy it, maybe I won’t; however, I absolutely love the fact that they used my love for the original Counter-Strike and the fact that I am a father now. Although I expect this is really targeted at kids whose parents played the original Counter-Strike, I don’t really care. I just loved this ad ❤

And the next thing I need to do next is download Counter-Strike and play a game or two 🙂 Anybody want to play a game?
