Patrick Shields for SG: "Playing video games is the best hobby there is. Sure, that’s my opinion, but I’m certainly not alone. Video games have grown from humble beginnings to become the most profitable of all entertainment ventures. That’s not bad for something that used to be considered a kid’s toy or a novelty demo. But why do so many of us play them? What is it about video games that makes me believe that playing them is the best hobby of all?"
