I'm not for sure if love is the most accurate word to describe what gaming is to me. It's been in my life for as long as I could remember and it's such a huge part of who I am. Sometimes it's tough being yourself or I should say dealing with life and all it throws at you. Playing as a character in a video game can sometimes help you work through those challenges and make you stronger because of it! When I'm doing something really tough I always say to myself "Be strong like Lara!" and as silly as it sounds her story and journey in Rise of the Tomb Raider really motivates me!
