"I love games,and games love me back.when I set down and play,say,some Final Fantasy,I know that I am receiving a distilled form of love that leaves no form of hangover or STD.what's an earthly charm compared to that of a pixelated sorceress mage who will battle the forces of evil that is consuming this very earth!what could be more rewarding than spending 18 hours a day,leveling up,so that you can get a mithril knife with steal ability?!How can anyone know the joy I felt when I defeated the final boss in the fantasy which was not final,but the penultimate one to the final,which might not be final after all?
I might not be much to look at in real life,but online,I'm a level 44 paladin/warrior/fighter with +8 charisma and +12 strength! Can real life ,with all its complexities and partisanship and man's inhumanity to man,ever equal the lush scenic beauty of a game? Hunter S Thombson once said:He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.Unfortunately,he never had the pleasure of playing games during his prime.It is a privilage to be in an era where I can exchange the misery of the mundane,a life so monotonous that every moment feels like a deja vu,for a virtual world that's genuinely more compelling.And for that privilege given to me by the console market, I say God bless videogames."
the senior writer(editor)of OPM ME:Sriram Sharma

I agree with him completely,also I see games as a refuge from reality ,when I'm angry with someone,instead of bursting into him,I head for games where my anger vanishes gradually,also videogames let me do things I can't do in reality,for example I have a tendency of breaking any kind of glass(my mom hates this),and I know that if I let loose of this little(tendency)I'll be in big trouble,but there are games where I can enjoy the sweet sound of breaking glass without getting into trouble (not to mention the other things like shooting,riding,flying,do illegal stuff and not to be arrested,,just doing extraordinary things and cool moves makes my heart rejoice).plus,I experience new things in videogames,,just seeing new worlds and to be able to be there,doing whatever you want with a lot of stories that connot be forgotten is enough for me...

yes..God bless videogames

Well, I think that video games can be a form of escapism should be a no brainer by now.

I love to travel. I've been to about a dozen countries on three continents. I love experiencing new cultures and the sheer sense of adventure I get from it all. Sadly, that is very expensive and time consuming. So in between my trips, I indulge in video game worlds achieving a similar (though incomplete) level of escapism and exploration.

Life sucks - we all know this. Video games can be a form of escapism from this fact. Video games nowadays can be a lot more than just escapism, such as a genuinely great narrative easily on par with many novels out there. Not all by any stretch of the imagination, but some certainly are.

aww life doesn't suck! You just need to see the positive instead of the negative ^_^ I think life is great...
But i do still agree that a game is a form of escapisme and a way to experience things you wouldn't in regular life.


But mostly... games help me procrastinate

Games are not an escape for me. I like working, I like day to day life. I have a real appreciation for little and simple things in life, even the mundane. Nor are they a means for me to vent anger. I almost never get angry and when I do I work out the problem with whoever made me angry.

I play games because I love excelling. I love being good at things and to be acknowledged that I am good at something. I am best with my hands. I actually carve, build things, game, practice martial arts, play the flute, (wanna learn piano), and play basketball. I am good with my hands, thats why I play games.

Oh and I love strategy

I don't like game but my bro really like it. I wonder why...
I only spend just little time to play game and It's feel so boring. :P
I think manga is more atractive than game. That's my opinion.
