A dark quite room, locked away from the world. Empty pizza boxes thrown across the floor, a shirt, your shirt covered in grease stains and remnants of crushed potato chips. Endless amounts of caffeine, as you pull an a marathon…for video game playing.
This is what many people imagine when they hear you’re an avid gamer. Someone who only communicates in gaming terms, someone incapable of understanding real life issues; someone who couldn’t possibly handle interacting with other people unless it requires a headset and kill streak. This is far from the truth. In fact gamers are more capable of navigating through life than the average non-gamer, for video games provide these essential building blocks.
