Why Video Games Matter

IGN:

A while back I was chatting with an acquaintance when my job came up. I mentioned that I worked in the video game business, writing about and reviewing games. They asked all the standard questions (“So you just play games all day?”), but then they asked me something that caught me off guard:

“Why do you like games so much? What is it about them that is so attractive to you?" ( Geometry Wars, Advance Wars, Culture, Industry, Super Mario Sunshine, Super Monkey Ball, The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker)

games aren't just a hobby, they're a way of life. trust me i have fun in life, with my friends, at work etc. but there are a lot feelings and sensations that i can only get from playing games. it's just the joy that I get from some of my favorite videogames that has me saying often: "now this is living".
