What Happened To Board Games?
Seriously, what happened to them?
You see them in the toy shops or in some cases, bookstores when visiting your nearest and undisclosed shopping centre, but it’s been some time when someone affably chatted to me about them.

The video games we all love and adore have much more media coverage and advertisements if you’re a frequent visitor at your local boozer that also caters to the video game crowd, but I cannot even remember when was the last time I saw a humungous poster advertising the latest turn-based bestseller.
I’ve recently played Monopoly and while I’ve always been up for a good board game alongside some friends; I have honestly forgotten about them in recent years. Nothing negative about them, but video games stole my attention span completely in the hobbyist-sense.
At first I thought that it might be the fact that board games may be too slow a process for video game enthusiasts, but video games take even more time to complete. (If they even have an ending. Skyrim comes to mind.)
I remember that when I was much younger I couldn’t control myself when I knew good old board game time was on the horizon, but it’s as though I’ve grown out of that board game frenzy. I still enjoy them, but more so in my past maniacal stage.
The point I’m getting at and my question to you, dear folks, is if you think it’s possible for someone that’s very passionate about video games to eventually grow out of video games themselves?
I cannot see that happening to me, but hey, I thought the world was going to end last year.
