When my girlfriend Mandy shared this site with me, I immediately thought of this great picture of us from late 2008, snuggled up on the couch playing Chrono Trigger.
Thanks for the submit, oh nameless awesome person. You have a very big couch. =D
"Samuel Deats is an artist, animator, and director who’s worked on Darksiders 2, DC Universe Online, and both Epic Mickey games. He calls this piece, featuring, to name but a few, Marcus Phoenix, Samus Aran, and the female Barbarian of Diablo III, “Gamer Girl.”
When I’m gaming (console), I tend to not only be fully clothed as you mentioned, but also sporting a Snuggie :) My brother got both me and my sister ones for Christmas a couple years ago specifically for having our arms free to play games.
Nice! Snuggie totally the perfect solution. <3
My grandma is a little Italian lady who used to chain smoke like crazy. One day I gave her an old NES and Super Mario Bros., though we figured she probably wouldn’t even play it. Not only did she play it absurdly well, she became obsessed with it – so much so that she stopped smoking because she was too busy playing. After her heart surgery a few years later, her doctor said that had she continued smoking the damage to her heart would most likely have been irreparable. I’m proud to say that gaming saved my grandma’s life.

This is incredible! Turns out computer games are incredibly good at distracting the brain from all sorts of things, from cravings to panic and depression.
