The gist of the love for video games is quite simple. A video game takes you into a different world just like reading a Harry Potter book does. You may not be swooshing around on a broomstick but there are games out there that can make that possible for you if need be.
Playing good video games and succeeding at it gives one a huge sense of accomplishment. For example, imagine playing Gears of War on the most difficult level and winning! That’s the kind of stuff we’re talking about here.
Let’s not disregard the fact that any type of gamer, casual or hardcore, will tell you that gaming is a wonderful escape. Yes, it is a wonderful escape. In gameplay, you can be whoever you want to be. You can be as powerful as you wish to be. You can be ideally who you are but cooler. The only difference is that you’re in a different realm or era with way cooler stuff to do. You can forget about your 9-5 job for a bit and fight off pirates to get your hands on that treasure box.
Embrace the world of video games for what it is. Fascinating, fun, creative, challenging, and wonderful!
