My reason is definitely escapism. To get away from mundane reality after work and do fantastical things that I can't do in reality.

For me, it is the engrossing experience that games offer up. Whether it's immersing myself in a world like The Witcher 3 or even playing a simple game like You Must Build A Boat, games offer such a rich interactive experience.
