Social Exclusion: Video Games

Many love playing video games, especially fighter games where they can match wits and skills with other people.

I have had my years and times with games in general, from childhood to adulthood. I briefly came out of retirement against and with some guys at the coffeeshop. Some are deep into fighting games. And the good ones like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. Currently the main game they are playing is MK11 (wow have there been that many sequels?).

They could have overlooked me since I don’t play much anymore, I just talk and know the game. But no they extended an invite for me to dust off the cobwebs. I won’t lie, it was fun and it brought back a lot of memories. I plan on playing again and more often, just not like I once did.

It means a lot to include people, even when they may not be interested. Just leave the door open and don’t assume they wouldn’t want a part in it.

We need more people like these gamers. I like how genuine they are and want to give everyone a chance to play. It’s the opposite of many games and it’s a great thing.
