I remember I used to have time to play games.

A recurring theme in this podcast is the notion that, both myself and the people I interact with are Hard-Casual Gamers.

I am apart of the Millennials, which anyone born between 1977 and 2000. Although, there is no a universal agreement on this definition. Millennials in the US total more than 80 million.

In the past we would have been considered extremely dedicated gamers, sacrificing long hours to Playstation or Nintendo gods without a second thought. We didn’t have a lot of money but we had time.

Now that we have a full load of adult responsibilities we look for opportunities to unwind and decompress but with an ever growing surplus of games in our Steam accounts, it seems like a task that will never be completed.

We want to play, but what do we choose based on our limited time?

How do you find time to play games?
