I think we can all agree that there are many different types of gamers these days. To most people, gaming is seen as a form of entertainment and a past time hobby. I wanted to take the time to tell you what gaming means to me.
As funny as it sounds, my whole life has revolved around gaming. I grew up watching my cousins play games and when I was finally old enough I picked up the controller and played myself. I remember playing the days when I played Secret of Mana, Breath of Fire, Wild Arms…I was a big RPG fan if you couldn’t tell :). During that age video games fascinated me because when you played a RPG you were fully immersed in the story and they were great stories! Might I mention that my favorite game of all time is Final Fantasy 7 and it inspired me to want to write.
I was a big fan of RPGs until I games began to really push towards multiplayer. My friend and I went to LAN places almost every day to play Counterstrike and Diablo 2. This was really when I started to become fascinated with computers.
I want to say that it was gaming that really encouraged me into working with computers and it opened a new world to me! I always wanted a bigger and better build for gaming and it became this fun art where my friends would all compare their rigs and help each other build.
Through gaming, I’ve met a lot great people, scrimmed with awesome clans, attended fantastic conventions and got introduced to several new things. Now I get to share that love and passion for gaming and pcs with NZXT, and I can confidently say that gaming has brought me down this path and I’m very happy to be where I am today.
So to all who think gaming is just a mindless hobby, what say you fellow gamers?! How has gaming changed your life?
