Short thoughts on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and why I love video games

Pacmansmashbroswiiu3dsmiiversewebpostthtehhgwgwgwYesterday is a perfect example of why I still play and love video games. There were twelve different people at my house coming and going over the course of nine hours covering more than a 20 year difference in ages between the youngest and oldest and representing multiple races, political leanings, belief systems, income levels, genders, and sexual orientations who were all able to have a great time laughing, shouting at each other, and playing a game together.

I will, for the rest of my life, enjoy games when they provide a shared experience, create lasting friendships, and bring people together who may have never otherwise even known each other.
