I've had my ups and downs. My share of dumbass remarks. Made my mistakes. I admit, I always lay in bed at night, thinking about things I should have done, or should have said. Sometimes my emotions completely brake through. But that's why I'm here. That's why I'm a gamer.
When I'm sucked into a game, I'm mostly sucked into the game for it's story, and it's gameplay. Wonderful graphics are definitely a huge plus. But they aren't the reason I'm I gamer. When I've had what feels to be a horrible day, when I get into my room, lay back on my chair, and I turn on my console, or my Laptop, and when I startup a game. My bad day is just pushed aside, as I'm sucked into a beautiful universe, filled with story. Whether that story is reached through the adventures of a theoretical physicist crawling his way to freedom through the vents of a underground research facility armed with a crowbar, or of a super soldier clad in green power armor, armed with luck, against multiple challenges and foes.
