Gaming is a huge industry. Between first person shooters, MMO’s, and dancing games, it seems like everyone is gaming in some way, shape, or form. As such, you may feel compelled to want to get in on the action. Before you go out and drop hundreds of dollars on a new console and a stash of games, you should try it out on a friend’s system to see if it suits you.
After all, there’s a distinct possibility that you’re just not a gamer. You may not hate it necessarily; heck, you might enjoy it when hanging out with friends, but you might not be as invested in the hobby as others are or maybe it just doesn’t hold your interest. As such, there’s no sense in pouring money into things that you are barely going to use. If you’d rather spend your time doing other things, than there is no reason to try to shoehorn video games in to the mix.
Gaming isn’t for everyone and that’s perfectly fine. Not everyone has to like video games. It’s a hobby that suits some people while leaving others cold. That’s just the way of things, nothing can be done about it.
