Video Game Villanelle

Do not dismiss the video game,
The delight it brings, the joy it inspires.
Truly, your life will be never be the same.

Though some might label it lame,
They underestimate how it sets the soul on fire.
Do not dismiss the video game.

Immersion is key to lighting that flame,
Making gameplay your sole desire.
Truly, your life will never be the same.

Whenever a good game called, I came,
Craving narrative experiences that never tire.
Do not dismiss the video game.

Explore vast open worlds that will never be tamed,
Live through experiences that will take you higher,
Truly, your life will never be the same.

So embrace a title without shame,
Especially when the world at large feels a little dire.
Do not dismiss the video game.
Truly, your life will never be the same.

  1. My whole family doesn’t get video games. My sister clings to the old ’80s notion that gamers are 12 year old boys who need to grow up. This is born out of ignorance. The sad thing is they’re missing out on such incredible experiences.

    1. Agreed. One only needs to play the StarCraft series to appreciate how right you are: but getting people to do such a thing when they believe that ‘gamers are 12-yo boys’ is a virtual impossibility.
