Games are designed to be fun. No matter what other motivations you have when you sit down and play a game, the number one motivator is always going to be having fun. Of course, while fun might be the primary motivator, there are some other reasons to boot up a game as well. Maybe you just want to kill time. Perhaps you are looking to be told an interesting story. Maybe you want to see a world you would otherwise never experience.
Do you have something on which you want to get the opinion of others? Polling members of a community can be really helpful for figuring out what the right choice is.

Thankfully, the aptly named iPhone app Currency has all the conversions you need in one place.
In the United States, there was a time not long ago when everyone with an iPhone had unlimited data. It was actually a requirement with AT&T. If you wanted to walk into an AT&T store and walk out with an iPhone, you had no choice. Now, most cellular carriers in the US are not even offering unlimited data, and for those grandfathered in, the carriers are even working on ways to remove the unlimited data you already have.
I think at this point, all gamers have accepted that playing and buying video games is an expensive hobby. Between the cost of games, consoles, and accessories, it’s easy for a gamer to drop a large portion of their income on gaming.

The subject doesn’t always have to be in the background, but in my opinion, the “soon” memes that zoom are by far the funniest.
Having a front and rear camera on your phone is a great thing. It allows you to take photos of yourself and use video chat to keep up with your friends. A cool use that I personally never thought of was recording from the rear camera and then overlaying content from the front on top […]
