The above is just a small moment competitive games, and serves as a very large reason why I love the genre so much. Smash bros used to be my game of choice, but nowadays I've traded my gamecube controller for a keyboard and mouse and scratch my competitive itch by playing League of Legends.
When not sitting in front of a screen my favorite passtime has to be hanging out with friends at a food joint. Anytime someone launches into an anecdote I can't help but lean forward, ears perked up, eager to let my brain become enraptured with the story at hand. I'm a sucker for personal tales but my interest is always piqued whenever talk of the latest Justice League or Naruto chapter gets brought up.
On nights when I stop working too late, or I simply lack the social energy to hang out with people (everyone has to recharge every now and again) I tend to curl up, roll over to youtube, launch a playlist of old favorites, close my eyes, and just see where the music takes me.
