I've played video games most of my life and looking back I definitely went through some stages.
My earliest memory of gaming was when I was maybe five or six years old. My older brother bought an Atari. I think I was more fascinated with it because I idolized my brother and he was making the tv do things on command. I didn't understand the games he played so it was lost on me.
For years I've searched for the thing that I'd be great at. I'm sure millions have done the same and come to similar results. It's been ingrained in me through media, society, teachers, and parents that we all have a purpose. I suppose... But what is that purpose? I've never had any aspirations to become a professional anything. So I'm not exactly shocked at where I am in life.
