Thoughts on hobby gaming
Gaming is not taking what you’re given, but instead demanding something more interesting. Gaming is not an escape; it’s a way to comment on our experiences. Gaming is cerebral, it’s tactical, but it’s also emotional. Gaming is killing the monsters and getting the treasure, but then, so is real life, right? Gaming is stepping outside yourself to understand other points of view, and knowing yourself better when you get back. Gaming is alchemy, and it’s something I’ll always do.
