How Games Saved My Life

A new Tumblr about how video games turned things around in people’s lives, if just a little.

Like this one about Tale Spin for the Nintendo:

My parents should have gotten a divorce. Should have, but didn’t. They would incessantly fight, and often, in anger my mom would take my little sister and go to her mom’s house. My father would then try to chase her down, which left me home alone to fend for myself. I found extreme solace in Tale Spin. I would play it continuously until one of my parents decided to show back up at the house.
