On the twelfth day of Blogmas

We have come to the end of our gaming singing that AmbiGaming came up with for this 12 days of Blogmas event. Thank you so much Athena for coming up with this and for giving me such fantastic prompts to work with.

Anyway, we should see what the last present under the tree is.

12 days of Blogmas!

On the 1st day of Christmas, the gamers said to me: What are 12 favorite gaming memories?

On the 2nd day of Christmas, the gamers said to me: Tell us 11 games you love!

On the 3rd day of Christmas, the gamers said to me: What are 10 reasons you’d play a game?

On the 4th day of Christmas, the gamers said to me: Give us 9 games on your to-play list.

On the 5th day of Christmas, the gamers said to me: Eight characters you love!

On the 6th day of Christmas, the gamers said to me: Share seven of your favorite posts.

Games can show us stories in far flung galaxies or in foreign countries or in different time periods.

Games provide an escape from the mundane activities of being an adult, like paying bills, or the stresses of general life or just a place to go to when you feel overwhelmed.

Games can provide comfort, new friends in the real world or the virtual one whether these are the characters on screen or people somewhere else.

Games can teach us about the past, let us explore places we will never see and create worlds that can inspire us.

Games give us something that brings us into them and allows us to be people we imagine as well as travel, save the world or create our own.

This sense of wonder, connection and creation that I can’t fully describe is the best reason to play games. They are something different to every person and that is pretty amazing.

So that feeling, for me, is the best reason to play games because it can be the same and yet different for every person. Always remember to enjoy yourself.
