Beyond The D-pad discusses the difficult question, why game?: "I recently had a question posed to me from a non gamer that on the surface appeared easy. But after some thought I found myself asking the same question. What was it might you ask, simple, Why do you play video games?
My first reaction was effortless, hey why don't you play games? But decided against that and after some thought said that gaming was a hobby of mine that I enjoy. After the conversation ended I felt good about my answer but still continued to ask, but why?"
