Why do we play Video Games?

Why do we play video games? And are they are good influence in our lives? It’s probably a question which has been asked many times before, but it is one I have often thought about myself. Everyone has their own reasons why they enjoy playing video games, hence the wide variety of different genres and types of games on offer. But there a few things every gamer has in common when it comes to this question.

No one asks why we watch TV or movies. Or stare at paintings, etc.

A very well made game can surpass even the best of those other forms of entertainment. Personally, the only other form of entertainment that I haven't replaced with gaming, is reading books, experimenting with cooking, and listening to music.

Edit: Also, LOL at the lasy in the background of the picture above who's jealous of the guy playing his game. Guys, find a girl who can enjoy gaming too, or else forget it. You can't have someone getting jealous of your hobbies. Trust me, if it wasn't games, she'd be jealous of your friends, your goals, your TV watching time, your fascination wit sports, family members your close to, etc. Find someone who like what you like to. Don't blame the hobby, blame the insecure hater who can't find their own interests (instead of hating on the hobbies that YOU happen to like).

I read an article once that said we play games because it helps us fulful maslows pyramid of needs. Apparently they make us feel accomolished and self actualized and such which makes sense with how passionate some people are about leaderboards and gamerscores... I just play for fun though personally
