Playtime? Gametime.

Do you play in your daily life? What says “playtime” to you?

Do you play in your daily life? What says “playtime” to you?

The reality of this question is: yes, but in several different ways.

For me, playtime is a time I enjoy whether by:

  • Playing a video game
  • Watching a show or film
  • the other kind of playtime

To say I don’t do all three daily is a lie. I make it a habit to do two of them daily, and the other comes naturally.

As a creator, you need to allow yourself time to relax, and if you require escapism as I do, you might need to play a video game or two.

I must admit, though, I don’t game as I used to as a kid. But then again, I didn’t play as a kid anyways. I was a creator even back then, so I’m trying to heal my inner child by giving myself childish things. Although, it didn’t work out as intended.

I schedule my game time, the other two happen when they happen.

Gameplay is on a schedule, so I can entirely immerse myself without worrying about something else I’m supposed to be doing.

I can watch a show or film while working, given it’s not the best experience sometimes, and other times, I will entirely forget what I’m doing and realise I’ve been watching Doctor Who for six hours without getting any work done.

So, the answer is yes – Playtime is in my everyday life. Given that it’s on a schedule, which is very adult of me, but it’s there. I’m even planning on doing a jigsaw puzzle… 

We’ll see how that goes… Probably something like this:
