How Many Games Did You Play Before You Realised That Gaming Was ‘For You’?
Whenever we try something new we are not always lucky enough to master it from the get-go. We might not understand what the thing is about, or how to do it, at that point in time.
However, with persistence we often overcome the learning curve hurdle. And that can be the case with games, too.

For example, as a PC gamer a hurdle may be that of using the keyboard and mouse simultaneously for the outcome wanted. Perhaps controlling movement and sight is a little difficult at first, and this can lead to some frustrations–especially when one dies before the crosshair is even on the enemy.
Console gaming has a similar hurdle, and that is using the remote control. Trying to finesse one’s thumbs to work with the remote in character-movement-harmony can be quite tricky. I would say that it is more tricky than PC gaming.
The above is only two surface-level hurdles one faces when starting to game. There are many more, and that means that there are many reasons as to why someone might think that gaming is just ‘not for them’. And that leads me to my question: how many games did you play, or try, before you realised: ‘Damn, gaming is for me’.
