Why I Enjoy Gaming

by - Monday, December 24, 2018

There are a lot of things in life that I enjoy, like makeup, fashion, and other girly things, but there's nothing I enjoy more than gaming. I've been out of commission for a few months, and it really sucks not being able to play because I need a job to get a gaming laptop. Despite that, here are some reasons why I enjoy gaming

It doesn't cost anything 
Sure I could enjoy buying the newest palette or that new dress, but those cost money. Gaming doesn't cost anything, except for the equipment and the one-time purchase of games.

It's an escape from real life
There are many ways to escape real life, such as YouTube videos, blogging, taking photos, and reading, but I find that gaming is more effective for allowing me to escape real life because it's a visual representation of that world.

It improves your brain skills
There are apps that improve your thinking, but some games, such as Portal, do the same thing. I enjoy Portal because it's challenging (more than iPhone apps that I end up deleting in a day or even a few hours anyway) and there are fun little easter eggs in the game as well.

It's another way to make friends
I primarily use Steam, and I discovered a forum that is purely dedicated to making friends. I love that, because I am very introverted, so it's really hard for me to make friends because I don't like small talk, and I don't really trust other people to keep a friendship in person.

Some games never get old, no matter how many times you play them
This applies especially to games like Skyrim and Left 4 Dead. Skyrim is a game that always feels fresh no matter how many games I start, and Left 4 Dead is an excellent game where I can think of new ways to beat the game instead of rushing like I usually do.
