Videogames are a special kind of experience. They can be artistic, social. They can be aggravating and toxic.
Between videogames, TV shows, movies, music, and books, videogames are easily the most impactful pop culture medium in my life, for combining many of the best elements of all the others.
The first videogame I ever played was likely a Pac-Man rip-off when I was around 4 years old, on the family computer.
The game I've spent the most hours on by far is DotA 2, which I can also partially thank for my move to the USA.
The most impactful games on my thinking are Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077.
These days I'm playing indie games, notably auto shooters.
