    Why Do You Play Videogames?

    This doesn't just have to be about PS3, any console/platform will do.

    I started gaming when I was young and as I grew older, I found gaming to be a release from the mundane tasks of everyday. In a videogame you have limitless possibilities, you could be one person one day then something entirely different the next.

    Of course life gets more interesting as you get older, but you never lose that passion for gaming.

    So, I ask you, why game?

    Since I can remember, I've enjoyed gaming...not really sure exactly why, but it's just something that's fun for me to do. I just enjoy gaming and it's relaxing and fun

    I started at a very early age, I had the first Sonic and the MegaDrive. I'm 21 now and I was probably playing as soon as I could grab the controller with my hands. It's just a different, better world, another dimension. I still feel the same way and I know I always will

    It's load & loads of fun. Escape from reality is nice when you can't afford a vacation. When else can I kill someone/something w/o question?

    I've played video games since I was a kid (Atari 2600) and I've got teenage children, so gaming is what we do to relax in the down time in our busy schedules.

    To pass the time while I wait for my expiration date.

    They can have great stories or mechanics that evoke far more emotion then a book or film ever has for me.

    I've always enjoyed video games but my interest rose in high school when it was something I could do while bedridden from football injuries. Anime too.

    Getting to be immersed into another world that these developers can create is unlike anything else in the world. Also trophies add a great feeling of accomplishment

    Like a lot of other people I play games because it has always been an escape for me, a chance to step into another world that is more entertaining than ours, or funnier, or scarier (depending on what type of game you're playing). I've been gaming since I was five years old, I started on a GameBoy color, which I still have to this day. Then on Christmas of '96 I got my first ever console which was the original Playstation, I played that thing everyday for about two weeks. Until my family hit some real hard financial times, my parents, little brother and I were living out of a hotel for almost a month - it was horrible. Except for one thing, my Playstation kept me and my little bro entertained even though we were playing on a crappy little hotel television, it made us almost forget our surroundings and just focus on the funny little images coming off the screen. Then when we got back on our feet and moved into our own apartment, my life became all about games. I seen just what power that form of entertainment can have, the places it can take you and the stories it can tell you. I hold this medium above all else because it has gotten me through dark times and has given me some of the greatest experiences and stories ever.

    I've been gaming now for as long as I can remember and I appreciate it even more now because after a long day at work, I come home and spend time with the family and then when I have chance, it's just great to game. It's relaxing, fun (dependant on game of course) and it just makes me forget about stuff for a while.

    Just for fun and a bit for relaxing. If I really want to relax, I'd rather watch a movie, watch (Anime)series or read a mag/book though.
    Started around my 5th with gaming because of my dad who had/bought most computers/consoles from Amiga Commodore, Snes, Lynx and so on. Was mostly just helping him out in the beginning.
