There's so many positive aspects to gaming outside of the fact that it's just really fun. Its; challenging, thought-provoking, emotional, intense, complicated, complex and it sharpens your mind. It also great for training hand-eye coordination which is why many surgeons are gamers.
Gaming most certainly is not just a pastime like watching a movie or reading a book, it's much more involved and takes much more creativity and intelligence. It's a truly great way to spend a little bit of time each day.
I also think the war between console gamers aad PC gamers needs to end. We must unite and join forces if we are to win this battle. Game on Gamers, game on.
