You should say:

What it is

And why you enjoy playing it

ANSWER

(What it is)

Since I was young, I have loved playing games on computers and mobile phones. I think playing games is a great way to relieve stress and it also helps sharpen some important skills. Today, I would like to talk about a game called Super Mario which has not only been my favorite game but also youngsters’ throughout their childhood.

(What it is like and how you play it)

Super Mario is a video game released in 1965 by Nintendo systems. It had a really simple and reusable concept that drove fans wild. The game is set within the Mushroom Kingdom with the main character being Mario and sometimes accompanied by his brother Luigi. Mario’s main objective is to rescue Princess Peach who has been kidnapped by Bowser but sadly Peach is always “in another castle”.

(And why you enjoy playing it)

I was first introduced to Super Mario Bros. when my cousin brought his new Nintendo to a sleepover. My father and I were immediately hooked. I didn’t know at the time that video games were teaching me more than how to rescue princesses from evil dragon turtles. The lesson of a video game is that failure is not the end of the road. Failure is merely the first step on a journey toward success. 

Failure is the freedom to engage with the new ideas and strategies that ultimately lead to success. Besides, I find Mario and the many characters in the game to be simple yet quite compelling. The same can be said for the stories in the games as well. The gameplay is usually quite refined. I also enjoy the very colorful look and feel of the games.
