I just wanted to pick your brains on why do people love gaming and what got them into it mine is kinda silly... but when i was a kid i had a really expansive imagination where i put myself in the shoes of the character in the movie and act it out or i would miss the movie while daydreaming on how i would do it instead lol. so when i discovered games i lost my **** it's like living a separate life of your own or living in the world and watching the story unfold and controlling the outcome it's pretty awesome if i do say so myself gaming just gives me an excuse to leave boring normal live and be a badass space ninja cat thing that can do all sorts of cool stuff you know stuff like that

I been gaming since I was 5. For me its all for fun and entertainment to help pass time, release stress and keep me happy.

I still remember the days when there wasn't Google and when you were stuck on a game, spending hours figuring it out, speaking to friends and looking at game guides / magazines to find a solution to complete it. Nowadays people just Google it or look up a tutorial on YouTube. Same can be said for Co-op mode, back in the day you have to do Split screen with up to 2-4 players, actually going and/or inviting your friends over to play one game together and having a laugh, now its all done online and theres just too many immature people swear and misbehaving.

I always loved gaming as it offers a chance to try, and do something new, also as a miniature escape from my life.
wise words from the lips of a gamer!

I've been gaming for a very long time since the 80's. Gaming now for me is to relax and kick back after work as I work long shifts on days and nights. To just start a game up and playthrough it is relaxing and the friends you make and play co op games is a good way to chill as well.

It’s definitely a sort of escape for me, from my life especially when it gets stressful. Where I can bond with these imaginary characters in vast worlds for hours. Not to mention it’s hella fun

Mostly when I get done with training, I like to unwind and play some games, however I also use gaming as a way to help relax my nerves whenever I get nervous for something important like a karate tournament.

I always have and always will be a gamer until the end, it's an escape from this harsh reality, it helps keep me mellow and to me, it's more than just a hobby, it's one if the things that make me happy.
