Whether you are a keen gamer yourself or you know one in your life, the chances are that you will have seen just how important these games can be to people. Escaping everyday life is a must – especially given the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic is still ongoing, contrary to many opinions!

There is absolutely no harm in losing yourself in a few games here and there. Let’s take a look at a few reasons why gaming might be just what you need to relax from time to time!

Immerse yourself in a new world 

Nowadays, to truly take part in video games, you have to do more than just play it on your TV screen. People invest small fortunes in sound-canceling headphones, gaming chairs, and even their own gaming rooms with ambient lighting, quality speakers, and more. All of this does more than just make the gaming experience more comfortable – it also allows you to feel more a part of the world you’re playing in!

As strange as this may sound, imagine yourself in a cinema: the lights are off, and it’s just you with the surround sound, comfortable chair, and big screen with colors that fill the room. Pretty soon, you’ll find yourself entirely in the world you’re watching and will remain there until the lights come back on. That is one of the key reasons why films have long been seen as a form of escapism, and today’s games seem to be providing the exact same thing!

That said, even online gaming can be immersive depending on how much you’re enjoying it! Playing online real slots, for example, can be a diverse, involving pursuit for many people.

It’s socializing in a whole new way

One of the great things about the interactive gaming of today is that you can meet and form relationships with people from all over the globe. Whether you are on the same team or are pitted as enemies, you get to know each other pretty quickly!

In fact, many people claim to have made friends and have even started romantic relationships from gaming.

Online gaming forums are another way of meeting like-minded people and getting to know each other virtually.

So, no matter where you may live or how people see you, you can meet and befriend people from all over without even having to leave the comfort of your own home.

You don’t have to play to get involved!

The act of watching others play has also become a form of escapism. The popular streaming platform Twitch has exploded globally, giving both professional and amateur gamers the opportunity to play their favorite games while directly conversing with their fans from all over the world.

Some of these channels have tens of millions of followers – there’s just something so exciting about watching others play games!


Gaming has long been criticized for its potentially addictive influence and potential for cutting people off from the society around them. This is nonsense though!

The truth is that gaming has come a long way and, now more than ever, can be a welcome distraction. Why not give it a try?

Carter is self-described as thirty-three-and-a-half years old and his thirty-three-and-a-half years birthday is always on March 3. Carter characteristically avoids pronouns, referring to himself in the third person (e.g. "Carter has a question" rather than, "I have a question"). One day [in 1984], Carter, raised himself up and from that day forward we could all read what Carter writes.
