Many people (especially my family members before) at times why I play video games a lot. In many ways, it is seen as not a great influence on my life and all. However, I beg to differ:
I play games mainly as an escape from the reality of things. It’s a stress reliever aside from Bible and prayer (I mean, the latter two are infinite in any situation). Also, gaming helps building strategic, multitasking, logic-building, making faster (and wiser) decisions and even maintain a healthy (friendly) personality. I did not realize all of this until I notice how quick I react to situations and my thoughts race to a decision. Also, I can layout details and plans better in my head now.
It’s just a thought I have as I see many articles debating on the influence on gaming over the years. Also, upon reading articles and watching videos of theories and concept, it’s interesting (but not surprising) to how developers make games inspired on events that happen in every day life. From stereotypes to politics, gaming is a major reflection of the world around us. It shows how we view the world, other people and ourselves. Just a thought lol.
I’m fine. It’s a just a moment where I almost walked into something at the wrong time (metaphorically with family). It’s not too serious, but I avoided trouble that might’ve occurred. I’m good though. Just expressing it here as a relief mechanic lol.
