Serious Escape Gaming Lets You Be Who You Want to Be By Andy Marken Our daughter was disappointed when Game of Thrones came to a close – didn't like the way it ended and was disappointed there wasn't going to be a season nine. But according to Comic-Con previews, she does have Paramount's Terminator: Dark Fate and Netflix' The Witcher to look forward to late this year. Until then, she's back to being a sneaky, aggressive, give-no- quarter gamer. Actually, games are a major pastime for most folks, young or old, according to Pew Research. Their activity accounts for an estimated 25 percent of the streaming activity on the Internet--even though it's not as "glamorous" as watching OTT movies or binging on a TV series. Online, on-device game play is almost universal – young/old, male/female – regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, nationality. And even though guys like to brag about it, gals are as active and they're as good as, if not better than, their male counterparts. Like OTT viewing, a quarter of teens say they spend too much time playing on their screens. Sure, casual; card; puzzle and strategy games are fine for wasting time on their phones; but when you crave a little action, nothing beats a good console or computer role- playing action/adventure, battle royale or shoot-em-up. And when they have a real need to test their skills, nothing beats a solid MMO (massive multiplayer online) timewaster.
