Perhaps the biggest question anyone can ask themselves is why do they game? And not the obvious answer of because I like games, but why did you even pick up a controller in the first place?
Ever since I was a kid I remember loving video games. My parents never played them but they owned an old Nintendo Entertainment System, so when I was about 4 or 5 I began obsessively playing Super Mario Bros 3 every day after school. It began with curiosity but the real reason stems from in my opinion the fact that I was pretty lonely. I didn't have many friends since I was a new kid and my parents both worked all the time so I was just an only child with a NES and a Gameboy at home.
Pretty soon after that I found myself owning an original Playstation which introduced me to games such as Crash Bandicoot and Spyro. After that, I guess the rest is history. My parents are around now and I've got friends and I'm not lonely anymore but video games are still a part of my life.
So why do you play games?
