Reasoning for Why I Play Games

Check out my reasons for gaming. What are yours?

Games can be an important part of someone’s life. I don’t know how many but I am sure many gamers can relate to being asked why they play games. Non-gamers don’t understand why gamers like to devote some, if not all, of their free time to games of fiction, either on video, tabletop, or both. So I figured I would answer that question for me.

Why Do I Play Video Games?

As an adult, life can be hard. There are so many things to stress and worry over that can clearly drive a woman to her brink. For me, video games are a way to escape reality for a while. I can temporarily forget the pressures of life outside the game and focus on just letting loose and enjoying myself. Without a way to release my tension, I feel like I’m just going to go crazy and that is never a good thing. So video games are a way for me to de-stress so I can carry on with my day-to-day life and not loose my cool.

Why Do I Play Table Top Games?

My reasoning for playing table top games is different from playing video games. Video games can be solo, but table top games have to include at least one or two other people. Money can be tight in today’s economy, so having things fun things to do at home is always nice. Playing table top games with friends is a great way for me to socialize with people who share my interests and just relax.

Why do you play games? Are you de-stressing or just having fun? I would love to know other views from gamers on why they play games.
