As someone who grew up gaming as well, I wholeheartedly agree! Gaming is a reprieve for me, especially when I’m dealing with something difficult or need a change in perspective. Playing a game like Zelda: Breath of the Wild or Hollow Knight calms me down and allows me to postpone my emotions until a later time when I’m in a better mindset. Or, if I’m at a road block, it opens my mind up by letting me become a character in a mythical world, which really gets the creative juices flowing.

Very good thoughts!
