I got into games after I got a PS1 along with Rayman for christmas when I was six, and that is when my love of gaming started. I hadn't played any games prior to that. Unfortunately about a month later my family fell on really hard times and we had to live out of a hotel for a few weeks after that. The only thing that got me through that time was my PS1, of course I had to play it on a crappy hotel television but it was still the most fun I was getting out of that situation, gaming was my escape from all the bad things that were happening After my family got back on its feet my bond with gaming was stronger. I love gaming and always will
I dont want to seem like a sob story and trust me I hate them as much as you do but it was my depression. I have always loved the fact that you can just log in for a few hours and leave all the stress and s**t behind you Plus I love them so you know
I grew up with board games, ping pong, and all that outside stuff, but there were also Pin Ball machines, and those were so cool and got cooler and cooler as time went by. Then these things called Video Games came out and they were so cool, then companies made it so you could play that stuff in your house on your TV.
