5.0 out of 5 stars It fills a void in my life!, February 1, 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Xbox LIVE 12 Month Gold Starter Kit (Video Game)
When I realized there was an empty spot in my life left by the death of my husband and kids in a boating accident, I contemplated what could fill it. Drugs? Alcohol? A pet?

Oddly enough, hours of pointless game play with strangers was just what I needed. Hearing some moronic 14 year old yelling obscenities at how poorly I play MW3 so reminded me of my son that I can't get enough. I've found myself making dumb mistakes just so I get yelled at. Do I have a problem? Maybe I need some professional help.

The starter kit does exactly what it says. It gets you online so you can be friended by obnoxious children with nothing better to do but build up experience on video games. Like that will be a good bullet point on a future resume!

The headphones are very basic. I'd suggest getting some nice Turtle Beach ones. The little keypad makes trying to guess some old password you once picked for some WindowsLive account years ago easier but no less frustrating. In the end, using a new email address is much quicker.

But all in all, this is a good purchase. It won't bring back your dead family, but it does give you something to do with all the free time their deaths has given you.
