The Sims: My Journey
In 1991, a fire raged across Oakland, California, destroying many homes in its path, and one such home belonged to a computer game developer named Will Wright. While constructing and decorating his new house, Wright was inspired to make a dollhouse simulator where a group of simulated people, named Sims, would walk through and evaluate the players' build. Eventually, the Sims themselves became the focus of the game and the eponymous series would go on to become a multi-billion dollar franchise over the course of many generations. In particular, the series may have very well changed my own life as it is.

To role-play or not to role-play: that is the question
Role playing is a widespread practise among the world of gaming (and not only within the video games industry), whose goal is to enhance and improve the bond between the player and the character who is being impersonated. Table top RPG games appeared for the first time on the market in 1974 with Dungeons & Dragons and have become quite popular nowadays, with examples such as the above mentioned D&D, World of Darkness, 7th Sea or Star Trek Adventures, to start with. When the whole concept of gaming went through its digital evolution, we can all imagine the possibilities that this implied: the chance to actually see a character and the world around it did nothing more than amplify the whole connection between player/playable character. With the never ending evolution of video gaming and the whole innovation of the story telling in games narrated through the eyes of a character (both in first person and third), this kind of connection grew stronger and stronger, and the chances to play games that allow the player to actually choose the actions of a character are several. Games such as Detroit: Become Human, Until Dawn, The Witcher Saga, Cyberpunk 2077 or The Elder Scrolls Series give the player the freedom to determine the actions they take (some more than others), actions that in most cases have a strong impact on the story itself.
