Discussionist: Push it to the limit

Video games, for many, are a simple, singular escape from the pressures of everyday life. Yet for others, video games are their ‘thing’ – a hobby they dedicate themselves to in the name of self-improvement. They play video games soley to compete.

Why do you play?

Do video games scratch your competitive or completionist itch? Are you willing to spend hundreds of hours obtaining that much coveted weapon or unlocking an equally coveted ‘Kill everything, and then some’ achievement?

Alternatively, do you have a passion for a particular game that you would like to share with the Gematsu community?
