I met one of my best friends trough videogames. One time I was at a birthday party of a friend of my ex and I saw him on his phone reading 1up.com. We started getting into a huge conversation about EGM, OPM and all the big gaming magazines at the time. He was the only person I ever met who was into gaming journalism and just video games in general as I.
Now we've been friends for over 3 years and we even do a gaming podcast with another one of my friends who I met later and we hit off by talking about obscure JRPGs. Good times.
I usually get my music through digital download, mainly because I don't feel a lot of artists release good "albums" but are more focused on that one hit that will make them rich. On the occasion I do like a whole album the physical media of choice is vinyl for me.
