Today’s question is: How has gaming changed you?
Oof. How hasn’t it?
I’m 49 years old. I started gaming 38 years ago, when I received a copy of TOP SECRET for my 11th birthday. Six months later, for Christmas, I received the Moldvay Basic D&D set… and from there, I was off to the races.
I gamed through high school, into college, and into my adult life. Gaming has changed me, in as much as nearly every friend I’ve made in the past 38 years has been through gaming… gaming became my career, as I began publish my own designs and do freelance work for other publishers, and that work led to other writing jobs, in comics, fiction, etc. I even met my wife via the Kansas University Gamers And Roleplayers club (KUGAR).
So yeah, you could say that gaming has changed me. It’s literally influenced every part of my life, from relationships to work, and I cannot imagine what my life would have been like without it.
