Sometimes life hits you hard. Maybe you had a bad day at work, your family is having a chrisis, you are going through a break up, or maybe stress is finally getting to you. I believe sometimes games can help us through hard times and help I know they have helped me keep my sanity. There are times when I've wanted to kill my boss or life is looking bleak so I've pulled out my old trusty game and used it as a crutch until things finally start to look up.
Say you had a bad day at work, and your boss or co-workers or clients or customers really have gotten to your nerves. I personally like to pop in a nice copy of Street Fighter or another great fighting game and kick some ass to relieve some stress or get out the anger of the day.
Other times I'm just plain tired, and I personally want to play a game and veg out after a long day, so I turn to a classic nostalgic game that I might have beaten a million and one times just to keep my mind busy and have some fun without having to concentrate too much.
Games have always personally helped me through hard times or just plain long days. In a way, they can be therapy and help us release our emotions, or they can bring us together with out friends as we take on some new call of duty map packs. Other times they are a nice bit of nostalgia to bring us back to our roots and remember how to have fun and think like kids again. Whether they are saving us from killing our bosses or occupying our minds they are always there to save us from life and either bring us together or give us the time alone we need.
