I’m the last person I would expect to be an avid video game enthusiast. Since I can remember, my favorite interests have been focused on activities like equestrianism and the tempestuous world of fashion. It wasn’t until my adult life that I was introduced to the worlds of MMOs and excitement of consoles. But over the years I have met and gamed with incredible people in perfectly made games. I have witnessed the friendships, sportsmanship, patience, determination, teamwork, challenge, and inspiration that come with gaming.
Because of these experiences I have written some quotes from my time playing and learning within the wonderful world of video games. Please enjoy! Also, I would love to support your favorite quotes as well! Leave them or your website in a comment below and I’ll tweet your favorites during quote week!
I’d take a video game night over a club night. More fun, more people, nicer conversations, perfect music, no fights, and my wallet stays full.
Video games are sports. There are teams, practices, and competitions.
Nothing ups your heartbeat and stretches your mind like a healthy PVP match.
TV teaches you that you’re not good enough & you’ll lose. Video games teach you that you’re epic & you’ll win.
An evening spent gaming is an evening worth heralding.
You’re watching TV. I’m playing a video game. At least my screen has real friends on the other side.
I’d rather be raiding.
To game on a PC or a Console? That is the question.
MMOS offer slow and steady successes over a long time. Consoles offer the quick & dirty.
Get in the game, or get off the keyboard.
Watching TV you’re still alone but gaming online you’re always among friends.
It is my belief that no one should ever be ribbed for playing video games. Video games offer great ingenuity, independence, and friend/family bonding. I hope these quotes help shift gaming into a new perspective. As a gamer you are a passionate individual who’s interested in what the majority of humanity is also interested in: team based activities, social interaction, healthy competition, creativity, art, and new technology… All these things are found in games. And everyone I know is very passionate about at least one of these.
There you have it. Gamers are normal people who have diverse interests in many things and you can never categorize them or put them in box.
