Man, I remember the first time I saw myself in a video game. Actually, maybe I don’t remember exactly when. I know it was a Madden game, but I can’t remember what year it was. Was it ‘05? ‘06? Shoot, I don’t remember. I’m certain it was Madden, though.
I’m not a Madden player -- I’m not a big gamer -- I just don’t do video games that much. But I did play it that one time earlier in my career just to see myself in the game. And MAN was I geeked! Never had I previously thought I’d be in a video game, but there I was on the screen, controlling my character’s every move with my fingers. It was definitely a cool thing to see.
A lot of my friends come up to me and say... "Hey, man! I’m playing you on Madden!" That’s always cool to hear. And my Brother, he’ll holler at me when each new Madden is released to update me on how the game has adjusted my ratings, rankings, etc. Hopefully, those numbers are a lot higher now than they were my rookie year - HA!
By now, most of you probably already have the new Madden 11 - right? If you do, good. If not, go get it. The reason I ask is because I'm launching a pretty sweet contest titled "Chris Harris' Hit-Stick'em with The Hitman Contest." Winners will receive items such as autographed game case inserts, football gloves or cleats.
