There's a reason we feel nostalgic for the videogames of our youth - they came to us in a time where we had virtually no responsibilities, tons of free time, and simply had way more energy. And a good portion of playing videogames when you're older is trying to recapture that feeling - entering another world and doing stuff that didn't benefit you at all in the real world, but was just FUN.

However, now we have to contend with being older, having more responsibilities, wayyy less free time, and generally being more exhausted than usual.

It's tough out there for an adult gamer.
