X is probably the toughest letter in the alphabet for the A to Z challenge. There just aren't that many X words that make a good topic. Fortunately, I can fall back on my childhood and bring up that old video game, Xevious.
I must have been about 5 when my parents bought me an Atari 7800, a very primitive video game system. One of the half dozen games I got with it was Xevious, which sucked up many happy hours. I actually preferred Galaga, but Xevious was fine for a change of pace.
Over the years, I've played various old video games, though the ancient Atari games haven't really piqued my interest. I can honestly say I grew out of them, and to be fair I haven't really played any games for months. Video games are losing their allure, as I find my time shrinking with different projects and responsibilities. Maybe, someday, I'll feel the urge to pick up a controller again, but for now I'll leave that to my kids, who still have some time to waste.
