Why does gaming matter?
For decades, video games have provided an escape into never-before-imagined worlds and landscapes, where players could immerse themselves in a story of their choosing. While that remains true, gaming has leveled up in so many ways.
esports and battle royale competitions draw millions of viewers hoping to catch a glimpse of excellence, celebrating the achievement of perseverance and strategy. Communities are built around a common experience of victory, defeat, and squadding up to improve together.
Gaming is also a challenge – and not just a test of skill. Games challenge viewpoints, perspectives, long-held beliefs and preconceived notions. The world of video games is a near-perfect example of how technology and art intersect to allow creators, writers, engineers and programmers to create something beautiful.
