So, when this semester first started, and I looked through the Creative Writing course outline, I couldn't believe what I saw: Video Games as an area of study? Huh.
To be honest, I don't think I've actually ever played a video game from start to finish. And what I remember from high school was going over to my friend's house with a group of people only to be bored out of my mind when the guys of the group would just sit in front of a TV playing a stupid game the whole time.
I never understood the appeal.
Then I thought, one of my favourite things is to read a novel. I mean, I can read for hours on end. I just love the experience of getting to the conclusion. Just how different is that from seeing a video game through to the end?
So, just because I don't spend my time playing video games, I do spend time absorbed in a book. I guess we all have our guilty little pleasures that take us away from our every day lives.
