Can we romanticize video games the way we do
Like you hear all these things about how you can curl
up with a book on a rainy day and drink tea and
smother yourself in blankets but anytime you hear
things about video games it's always about how
you're wasting your life away yelling into a headset
as you play Call of Duty in a basement?
Imagine bundling yourself up on the couch, the
sound of rain hitting the roof, and putting on Fable
for a few hours. Or getting home after a long day of
work. You make yourself a cup of cocoa, put on
fuzzy pjs, and play Viva Pifiata for hours not giving a
second thought to the outside world. Semester just
got out? Throw on some Fallout and just take a night
to breathe and enjoy.
You aren't wasting your life away, you're enjoying it.
Games can be just as much an escape as books,
except you get to be part of the story.
