Playing video games is one of the most fun things to do to pass the time. They are a wonderful distraction from the real world and can help us to escape the tough days at work, get us through sick days and provide us with the chance to just be somewhere else for a little while. When you play a video game you can be in a totally different world, you can be a star sports player, a vampire hunter, a Wild West slayer or even a space alien trying to defeat your enemies.
There are really few other things that can transport you to so many other places in the press of a button or the swipe of a controller than a video game. Whether you are someone using a console or a PC gamer with a water cooled sixteen core monster or even someone who games on the go, you will know the feeling of being totally immersed in a game. The only thing more amazing than being able to play these games would be the ability to play them for a job. Imagine if your commute was just to your couch or your local gaming cafe. Consider being a professional FIFA player or even someone whose work consists of slaying dragons and gunning down their rivals on Call of Duty.
