The Zen of Video Games - Thanks

Aaron from Leviathyn.com finds a post online about having to deal with people who hate gaming, and realizes he's grateful for a lot of things gaming has done for him. (Culture, Mass Effect, Resident Evil 6, Super Mario Bros. 3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim)

Playing a game on hard and having to overcome an extreme challenge is very zenlike to me. I almost get a high from the rage I am experiencing. I remember that I raged so hard playing god of war 3 that I got a little dizzy and had to sit down. I was so furious. It was awesome. I did break some shit and threw my controller though. I normally can contain myself but sometimes if I am really emersed I lose control.

The only problem I have had from non gamers is the girls I date. My family also dont get it but they dont say anything to me about it. Why the fuck did it repost my edits as a new post
