Gaming Lifestyle: You’re a Gamer? – The Cursed Checkpoint #122

As far as video games have come, gamers still find themselves on the defensive about their hobby. Brandon, Justin, and Cole discuss how they explain gaming to non-gamers and discover truths and opinions about why they are asked those questions.

The Cursed Checkpoint is a topical video game podcast focused on discussions and interviews about a single video game, genre, news headline, or industry story. It features a rotating cast of up to 3 members of the Horrible Night writing staff and/or video game industry professionals.

You're a Gamer?

Episode Background

What starts as a conversation on how to explain video games to non-gamers turns into a deeper discussion on understanding where the questions come from, why they’re asked, and how to achieve balance in life and video games. Brandon, Justin, and Cole debate on how to respond when anyone questions why you play. Topics covered range from baby boomers, books, art, movies, and children.

This checkpoint is for anyone who plays video games and isn’t understood by family members or peers who don’t play video games, and parents of gamers can learn a little bit about why their children may be interested in games and how to relate at least on some level.
