Ad­ven­ture time

Games Master - - Contents -

I just wanted to re­spond to the Take Aim ar­ti­cle in is­sue 318 [“Stop mak­ing char­ac­ters ex­tra­or­di­nary. Just once, let me be av­er­age” by David Meik­le­ham]. “You know what I can re­late to? Be­ing in­signif­i­cant. Not be­ing spe­cial. Strug­gling with the grind of daily ex­is­tence,” he wrote.

I’ve been dis­abled for over 14 years now. I can’t do a lot of things I used to en­joy and my so­cial life is nonex­is­tent. I know how it feels to be in­signif­i­cant all too well, but for an hour or so a day, I es­cape. I am spe­cial, I’m a hero go­ing on epic ad­ven­tures in amaz­ing worlds. This is due to the won­der of games and my life is so much brighter be­cause of them! So if you’ll ex­cuse me I’m off to save the world again!! Sue Mus­kett, email Thanks for writ­ing in Sue! Es­capism means dif­fer­ent things to dif­fer­ent peo­ple, and we cer­tainly didn’t mean to in­val­i­date any­one’s gam­ing ex­pe­ri­ences with that Take Aim. Dave was just ar­gu­ing for more va­ri­ety, so that both you and he can have the games you each en­joy!
