A great form of Entertainment for us students is in my opinion video and computer games. This is because it’s something that keeps us away from spending money. We can just buy a game for £30 and then hopefully enjoy it for 6 months or so.
You will not spend any money while you play it and of course when you are at home playing a game it’s hard to spend money in General.
If we compare it to hanging out downtown with some friends then usually your cash will start to flow away in all kinds of directions. You decide to take a coffee and then maybe you get some snacks with that. You go to the cinema and might end up buying even more snacks and things.
The downside however with computer games as your entertainment is that you can get a bit lonely. Its not good if you sit at home every weekend alone and just play. This will of course affect your social skills in the end.
A great way to get around this problem is to play the games with your friends. This will make it more social and hopefully more fun as well. When I say play with your friends I mean that you should play in the same room. Not just online in the same game in different locations.
When you play in the same room on the couch for example you can argue about some school problems at the same time as you play and hopefully find some good inspiring things to talk about. Sometimes the best solutions to problems pop up in the head when we are actually not trying to solve them and I think entertainment like video games are a perfect way to bring those ideas out.
