Currently, I am writing a research paper for university. I am currently looking at Gaming, its role in globalisation and its impact on everyday life.
Now, I get the fact that World of Warcraft, Starcraft, Starcraft II, Minecraft, Defence of The Ancients, League of Legends, Portal, Portal 2, Pokemon Video Games and the Trading Card Game counterpart, Yu-Gi-Oh! are all extremely popular and played by perhaps hundreds of thousands, possibly up to even millions, of people every day (Yes, I am aware that I did leave out several very popular games but I can't list them all here).
Now, why am I saying this you ask?
I want to hear your opinions on WHY you play certain games. If possible, address:
-What games do you play?
-Which game(s) do you play the most?
-What benefit do you get from playing these games?
-Why do you play them (wasting time is not an acceptable response)?
-How did you find that game to begin with?
-What made you keep playing it (in other words - why do you continue playing the game even after you finish the main story/plot/goal)?
