Hobby Example and Homework Can you tell me about your hobby?
My hobby is playing video games. I started playing video games when I was a child. At first, I played at the arcade with my friends then I bought a home video game system. When I was a child the home video game systems were not very advanced but they were still fun. I still enjoy the classic video games like “Sonic the Hedgehog” but I also like some of the new video games. My favorite video game is DDR, because it combines music and exercise. I have a DDR pad for my system at home and I usually play three times a week.
