WHY DO WE PLAY
VIDEO GAMES
“Because it’s fun” is too obvious an answer, though it’s an answer which none would disagree. Is it to simply get away from the humdrum of life? A brief distraction from reality into worlds of pixels and high scores.

We may explore made-up worlds to escape but along the way, we learn a little bit more about ourselves.

We embrace the struggle and when we fail, we pick ourselves back up and give it another go. This is true no matter who or how high up the level you are. We are together in this grind.

The games we play are more than mere amusement. It is a form of meditation. It is how we cross over from who we are to who we can be. We play to level-up in life; and we will never stop playing.
