A lot of people claim games, movies, books are escapism. That couldn’t be further from the truth for me. Every movie, book and especially game I’ve enjoyed has helped me see the world through different eyes and made my life and my outlook on life better, more inclusive, more thoughtful and considerate. I will chase after any game that is deep and rich and I’ll savour it and I’ll identify with the characters and any life changing moments happening in the story, I usually apply them to my own life and see how it matches up. It’s not escapism for me, it’s enrichment. It’s adding color and different lines of thought and helping me be better.
