Super Mario Bros is a good game because you get to save a princess.
Mario goes on a journey to save her. He jumps so much and picks up shiny coins. Jumping and collecting coins is fun. Jumping on bad guys is also fun.
Sometimes Mario jumps, falls and disappears. Where did he go? Do you know? I don’t. Tell me. Come on!
Then he comes back and everything is great. I get to play the game again.
It looks so good. There are flying turtles and mushrooms. I wonder if they taste good? Does Mario cook them?
You have to move forward to reach the end of the world. Fireballs burn. Run! Run! I hid in a pipe for a moment to escape them.
Then I found the princess because my big brother helped me. Mario loves her and saves her from a bad guy. Do they get married?
This game is fun if you like to jump.
P.S. Time for my nap.

Anyway, to write this post, I channeled my inner child. When that didn’t work, I traveled back in time with a certain device to write with my childhood self.
Nah, I tried to imagine how the ten-year old me would write a post about video games. You read the result, but I have no memory of how I wrote as a child. It’s a guess.
Have you ever tried to write like your childhood self? Did you ever write anything about video games as a child? Are you willing to share and embarrass — maybe — yourself?
