Why Do I Play Video Games?

Starting a job at a video game company made me view games in a different way. It made me think about what I did like about games in general. I realized I really love games where I can interact with a lot of things and hear what different characters have to say. It’s things like these where you can really feel the game was made with love. I immediately thought of Hades, the amount of dialogue and hidden interactions in that game is insane! The world really felt alive.

It made me think too at how video games are also like storybooks in another medium. We, as humans, love stories. Our lives revolve around stories. It teaches us things, or shapes our way of life. It really has been awhile since a game has affected me that way!
