Why Video Games are underrated, how they can change your life, and world building. PODCAST #15



There are varying levels to creating and storytelling, but few can be as immersive as diving into a world created for you and taking control of the environment. Video games are still somewhat trying to shed the stigma of being for kids, even though it is one of the highest forms of creation that human beings make, on many forefronts.  We discuss our love for the games that  changed our lives as kids, and then how games have been able to affect and change our lives into adulthood.  You don’t have to care about video games to resonate with this conversation. Thanks for listening— Jordan Garland (host of Spooky Hourz Podcast).
