Start writing a post

Video games have been relevant since the 80s but not until a decade ago, video games have taken a huge leap into becoming a lifestyle and job for people. From the start of the 2010s to 2019, games have evolved all the way to virtual reality. Games have become normality in peoples everyday life. Thousands of video games are released every year, but very few make a truly big impact on the gaming community. These are the ten video games that have had the biggest in sales and the biggest impact on the gaming world.

1. "Skyrim"

One of many masterpiece games Bethesda gaming company has made. Released in late 2011, the fifth installment in the Elder Scrolls Series, "Skyrim" was the best by far. The game was fluid, fun, and adventurous in every turn. The game ended up winning the game of the year.

2. "The Last Of Us"

"The Last Of Us" was a game that was released in 2013, and from personal experience, there wasn't a game that I gravitated emotionally more than the two main characters in the game. The game is set in a zombie-filled world trying to survive. This game will go down as one of the best.

3. "The Witcher 3"

Another role-playing game on this list, "The Witcher 3" is another game that won the video game of the year. Filled with fluid controls and gorgeous graphics, this game will go down as one of the best role-playing games of all time.

This game was filled with violence and gore but filled with a great story and smooth controls and great graphics. This was another game made by Bethesda. This game was a reboot from the 90s, but it was made great.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities.

As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.
