Taken Over By A Computer Game :: English Literature Essays
Taken Over By A Computer Game One day I went to the computer shop and I bought a new computer game. The box in which was the computer game was, looked very nice and I couldnÃ¢â¬â¢t resist to buy it. Next day my parents were leaving to France and I was aloneÃ¢â¬ ¦ Ok not exactly alone, the baby-sitter that looked after me when I was little came to our house to look after me for 1 week. She was young and she wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t a really baby-sitter because she cared more about her hair and nails than about me. Later when it was dark she went out with her friends. The next day when I woke up the baby-sitter wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t in the house. I didnÃ¢â¬â¢t know what to do. I wanted to call my parents but I thought and realized that if I call them and tell them that there is no one to look after me they would get worried and maybe I will ruin their trip. I tried not to worry but I couldnÃ¢â¬â¢t. Then I sat down and I thought for a momentÃ¢â¬ ¦ Nothing could happen to me if I donÃ¢â¬â¢t open to anybody and if I stay home. After I watched my favorite TV show I went to play the computer game I bought yesterday. First I installed the game and then I started playing. It was a simulation game where you are supposed to drive a space ship and safely get back to earth. The first level of the game was very easy. I destroyed all the asteroids that were coming towards me but I couldnÃ¢â¬â¢t communicate with the station because a small asteroid hit right in the back of the ship where the communicable devices were. Now I couldnÃ¢â¬â¢t go back to the space station to re-fuel the space ship. On the next level something strange happened. The screen of the monitor started flickering and something white appeared before me. Suddenly I could see myself going about 500 kilometers per minute in some kind of a tunnel. It was a green and blue tunnel were I could smell something like burning plastic and I could hear a sound like grasshoppers singing. Suddenly I was standing in a place with many buttons around me, about 5 monitors and I could see asteroids through the big window in front of me. I was in the space ship.
