We all have our reasons for gaming. Some play to escape the drudgery of an otherwise stressful day. Others might play because they want to enjoy the game as a work of art. Many do it just for the fun of it. But for me, I was raised on it for more than most of my living days. Video games have always been a huge influence in my life. Whether they’re aware of it or not, there are also many people in my life who served to further my interest with electronic gaming. Reason number one goes directly to my Grandfather. I couldn’t tell you when my Grandpa was born or what his childhood was really like because him and I never discussed it. If there is one thing I will always remember about him (he passed away this week), it’s that he got things done no matter what it took and he encouraged the same quality in me.
