Grown Up Gaming: Balancing Your Time
A large amount of today’s console gamers are people who have grown up playing games, often starting their gaming career from anywhere between the Atari to the current generation. But as games mature with us the notion of cutting gaming out of our lives and dismiss it as a childish hobby seems less necessary. It’s recreation, or it’s storytelling, or it’s aggression therapy, and these are all things adults can use.
The grown up gamer requires a special balance between responsibilities and game time. For some people it’s staying up later to get in a few hours a night until they finish a game. For others it’s sticking to portable gaming on their bus/train commute. For me it’s a mixture of both, oftentimes even playing a handheld console while catching up on TV (which can overload your brain, so be careful).
