So when I ended up in front of a PS3 with a microphone in hand this weekend, a feeling of dread swept over me. And as the opening strains of It Only Takes A Minute began, I braced myself for several minutes of gut-wrenching embarrassment.
Yet to my surprise, it was actually fun. Sure my singing was as bad as I knew it was - possibly even worse - and my dogs doubtless cursed evolution for giving them a hearing range far beyond that of a human being, but truth be told I enjoyed it.
Well, at least until the playback where the true horror of my out-of-tune singing was rammed home.
So now I've confessed to my own games of shame, anyone else dare to name the games they like but would rather keep quiet about?
