It can be difficult being a gamer, especially one who is excited to talk about them with other people. To many people in the world gaming is still something kids do, a time waster, a killing simulator, addictive, unhealthy (probably true) but regardless we keep playing.
So why do you play? What drives you to put so many hours into something virtual and pay for the privilege? Achievements that none will know you for. Is there something actually wrong with us, or do we see in games that which others cannot? Do you ever feel lucky to have had certain experiences in games and feel bad that others may not have had?
On the metaphysical side of things, I tend to believe that nothing is real, life is a dream and my characters are alive. I have had dreams of me talking to characters I have created/played in a couple different games. Intense conversations with a consciousness/likeness that I invented. In a weird way it's like being god.
I also believe in good competition. MMO Gaming is in my opinion one of the most fascinating, frustrating, rewarding, beautiful and intense ways to do so. But many would call that crazy and then watch a baseball game or a boxing match as if that is something completely different. I would actually probably receive a much better reception at calling myself a pro chess player.
Are you a private or open gamer? Do you keep your gaming experiences to yourself? I tend to, but I wish I could share them with more people than an internet forum sometimes..
