Work Makes Gaming Feel Like…Well…Work

One of the problems with writing about gaming for a living is that gaming then becomes a job.
Hello? Mr. Obvious, it’s Amy. How are you?
Maybe it’s just me but for as long as I can remember, if I did something without being asked {whether that be cleaning my room or playing a video game} then I always got more enjoyment out of it than if I was asked/told to do the same task.

My mom doesn’t do technology and I highly doubt she would “get” why I would rather go to E3 than spend a weekend reminiscing about mistakes I made 20 years ago.
