Lunchtime Poll: Video Game Inspiration

Has a video game ever inspired you?

Recently, I went on a hike (Diamond Head, Oahu, specifically). The trail isn’t very long, about 760 feet. But it’s nearly all straight up – very steep trails and stairs.

I practiced for months on the treadmill, walking for miles on the steepest incline. But I’m just not really meant for hiking, at least not going straight up.

I had to take a lot of breaks. Other people easily jogged past me. People who passed me on their way up passed me on their way down.

Finally, I took a deep breath, blasted Florence + The Machine on my iPod and pretended I was Marian Hawke hiking up Sundermount, to meet Asha’bellanar (Dragon Age 2).

Has a video game ever inspired you? Maybe not so literally – maybe to create a piece of art, right a story, or maybe to get through a tough situation?
