Couch Podtatoes Episode 53: Gaming as a Coping Mechanism


Eri came up with this week’s idea and we discuss the idea of using gaming as a coping mechanism. It’s more of a philosophical topic and we definitely aren’t pulling out any hard facts, but it was interesting nonetheless. Of course we also talk about what we’ve been playing before sharing our personal anecdotes about how we escape into virtual worlds when life gets rough. There’s also some important TGEN related news that I announce towards the beginning of the show, but it’s not exactly new news. Just wanted to put it out there again for those who may have missed it. That’s about all I have to say on the matter, so check it out!
