Big Topic: The Euphoria We Get from Gaming
Video games are a fun, fulfilling, and sometimes (thanks to streaming and content creation), a new career option. It doesn’t really matter if you’ve been a lifelong gamer having played games for a few decades or if you just casually turn on a set-top box or a mobile app to pass the time, video games can be a tremendous outlet for fun and entertainment.
Big Topic: Why Don’t We Finish Our Games?
As gamers, we all have a point of pride when we roll the final credits on a game and finish it. Some of us play games for entertainment, while others play just to pass the time. Gamers enjoy the hobby of playing video games in many different ways but there’s one thing practically every gamer has in common with one another — we all have games that we have not finished.
