The rainy season has begun yet again! Time for warm cups of coffee and indoor activities (just use your imagination). Some prefer to immerse themselves in books, watch movies, or play a great game, from wild, graphic video games to the quiet board games of antiquity. ''Tis the season for gaming. Pick your poison. These folks have.

What is your all-time favorite game? Lunar. It''s a medieval role-playing video game.
Are there benefits to playing a video game? They do a lot for the imagination as a way for someone to become inspired. Some people read books, etc. It is just another medium of expression.
Do we live in a fake simulation as seen in The Matrix?/B> No. I actually think people are too creative to be that oppressed.

What''syour favorite game? Chrono-Trigger, a rough RPG (Role-Playing Game).
What is up with all the RPGs? They''re a better value. Finishing one takes a long time.

What is the importance of any game? The social interaction involved.
What is your favorite? Abalone, not to be confused with the mollusk, an old abstract strategy game.
Do we live in a fake Matrix of a world? Absolutely. It goes into slow motion bullet time whenever I step into a line at Starbucks.
