Well hello, you. Would you stay a while and listen? Because as someone who’d grown up with video games, I feel that I have an interesting article for you today. I used to think that mindlessly hacking away at fake monsters was a waste of time. But now I see the purpose of all those […]

Some of my earliest memories are of watching my older siblings play Donkey Kong on our SNES or my brother and I pulling our hair out trying to figure out the puzzles in Goof Troop. And don’t even get me started on the Game Boy – Pokémon was my life (when I could steal the game away from my sister, that is)!

I’m not a “gamer” by any stretch of the imagination, but I do enjoy booting up No Man’s Sky a couple times a week or chucking turtle shells at my family members in Mario Kart. So when I came across this blog post – by one of my favourite bloggers, I may add – I knew it would be good.

Stuart Danker has a knack for making unique connections that you never would have thought of, and this post of his is no exception. Habits in gameplay related to habits in life? Who knew! And, even better, his posts are always interesting and fun to read. You don’t even realise how much you’ve read until you suddenly reach the last word.

Do yourself a favour and put aside a minute or two to read it today. It’s full of fun, great points about life, and, of course, video games.

Happy reading!
