Weebthusiast EP05 – Mental Health and Why We Play Video Games (Especially during quarantine)

Leave a comment

 

Hi Hi!

 

Well, it surely has been a while since I last posted a video on here. I haven’t stopped uploading, though; I’ve been posting videos on my other channel #sorryasianparents. But I still haven’t forgotten about this baby. Many of us Weebthusiasts have been busy with other projects, but we try to get together as much as possible and make some new content. 

 

In this episode, Justice and I welcome our new friend Emilio on the show. It’s a new year, but everything still feels about the same. Since we are entering another stay-at-home order and have a new face, we decided to talk about how playing video games affects our mental health. We touch on what games we are currently playing, the community we have formed, and the positives vs. negatives from partaking in this digital pastime. We go on a few tangents, but we can’t help it. We’re just a bunch of excited gamers who are eager to share a piece of our minds. 

 

If you’re also playing video games during this trying time, let us know! We would like to hear what games you’re playing and how you feel about video games.

Graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in English: Creative Writing. So far, this degree has helped me become a decent bartender and a professional online troll. Currently living in SoCal and trying to chase my dream of becoming a comedian since I quit both of my jobs right before the Rona hit. Great timing on my part. Sigh, story of my life.
