Why is it that the controller became my best friend,
Taking hours of my life away without an end,
Picking up a control stick never made me sick
I found out that gaming is what made my heart tick….

I, like many others, am a gamer. There is a distinct difference between me and my friends because of one aspect: Gaming is my necessity.

I need the controller because of how it makes me feel. It establishes me as a competitor in the world where people spend their entire lives, hours and hours of practice. I prove that yes, you can live a life and still be a good gamer at the same time. As a kid, it made me not feel alone since I was an only child. To this day, I immerse myself in it for competition. Sure, there are many out there better, but most of them I overcame with an extra hour or two for dedication.
