Let’s talk about games.
What games do you like to play?
There are several games that I enjoy playing, and one of them that comes to my mind is chess, I recently enjoy playing chess with my friends because it is exciting. Yesterday I played a two-hour match with my friend John. When I feel energetic I also like a good game of football.
How often do you play a game?
Well, usually I play games a couple of times a week because I like to be up to date with the latest trends in games, recently I’ve been playing Call of Duty 4 and I hope it’s worth every penny that I paid.
Who do you most enjoy playing games with?
Uh, I usually enjoy playing games with my friends as well as my elder brother, because with my brother it’s a chance to spend quality time together and learn new skills from him. Like yesterday we played a good cricket match, I played in the evening time and he showed me a new way to bat.
