The Role Games play in Life

Games have always played an important role in my life, though I have felt their purpose change as I develop. They used to be a diversion. As a child, I threw myself into epic console role-playing games, committing dozens of hours, and wishing that somehow, somewhere there could be one that would never end. As a teen, I played games as escapist fantasy, obsessing over tables and charts for table top role playing games, bringing my friends together after school to make up stories about Vampires and Werewolves on the streets of our own town. Now, as an adult entering the great “middle age,” games are more important to me than they have ever been before. They’re no longer diversions, but creations. An opportunity to give back to a culture that has given me so much to grow up with.
