Conquering virtual mountains: How video games got me through 2020
I’ve always loved disappearing into fictional worlds, being drawn in by my imagination with books or completely absorbed in the visuals of a film. But, this year, I discovered how to actually take part in a story - through games.
I’d never been much of a gamer or, at least, not compared to a lot of people.
Yes, I had a Nintendo DS as a kid and I’d still occasionally crack out my Nintendo Wii for a Mario Kart party. But over the last five years? I’ve probably only played four games all the way through.
