Pick Up The Controller and Sieze Your Destiny: Why Do You Play?

Within a cartridge or a disk is something vastly greater than the sum of its parts. Entire worlds, people and emotions lie asleep underneath the power button, waiting for us to wake them up.

Escapism is part of it for me, its nice to just forget about the world for maybe a few hours and enjoy a good game, similar to a good film or a book.

For me it is the feeling of being there and accomplishing something, weather its a platinum trophy or just finishing a game through. With the story its again similar to films and books, we often relate to characters, believe that we could really be some sort of hero or badass that take no shit, it can be as simple as just wanting to drive fast on a track with realistic physics or going off road during an earthquake. Sometimes its just that push of life we want but cannot realistically have like fighting off an alien invasion

Finally of course - Games are just awesome

for me was aways about the exploration of a new world, with different laws and different culture...

this is why i love so much games like terraria, minecraft and other sandbox games, the feeling of finding something new and using it to create something new will aways make my eyes shine...

aside from that, epic battles and epic story...
