These days, there are so many great games being released across a multitude of platforms, that it seems nearly impossible to stay up to date on what’s currently popular. Unless, of course, you put your video gaming priorities above all other forms of entertainment.
Sure, there are a lot of great movies to see and Netflix shows to binge-watch, but nothing quite engages a participant like an amazing video game. After all, a movie will keep playing even when you’re not watching it. But a video game requires you to be engaged if the story is ever going to advance further -- which is no doubt why video gaming is quickly becoming the highest-grossing form of entertainment around the world.
The downside of this is that being a gamer isn’t exactly cheap. Consoles alone are hundreds of dollars, and the average video game costs about 60 bucks. So ironically, just when you’re old enough to have the extra money to indulge in gaming, you’ll probably find your life overflowing with adult responsibilities.
So whether you’ve been gaming since at-home consoles were first released or you're new to the gaming world, let’s find out how refined your tastes are by hypothetically passing or playing on these popular titles.
