The house doesn’t speak English, but it speaks another language. If you strain your ear, you can catch the hint of some exotic accent. You see, the fish darts around his tank, the fridge hums gently, and the console makes a whirring noise as it spins a disc. The console’s bright lights also command attention.
Yet, I make the most audible sound amidst this cacophony. This is the sound of clanking thumbsticks, of a person who is battling through a difficult video game. Before long, though, my left eye gets heavy and starts to close while the right eyes the left and follows suit. Then I stop moving. The console keeps running.
Do you ever start falling asleep while playing video games? How would you describe that experience?
