Why Do I Play Games?

Video games are a number of things to a number of people. There are as many reasons out there why people play video game as there are gamers. You can ask 10 people the question, “Why do you play video games?” and you’d get 10 different answers. Some people play them to escape the real world. Some people play them because it makes them feel like a hero. Some people play them because they enjoy shooting things, but don’t want to do that in real life. There’s no right or wrong answer to the question. Today I’m asking myself that very question. “Why do I play video games?”

Re: Why Do I Play Games?

For me it depends. I don't have much time to play video games so I'll crave for it. Sometimes I just want to kill some time.. and sometimes I like to feel the power of squishing my enemies.
