Retro Encounter 231 – Mental Health, Self-Care, and Gaming

Retro Encounter is a little more serious than usual this week, as five panelists discuss video games as escapism, video game characters with whom we identify, and specific emotional attachments to video games, in the context of mental health and self-care. It’s an episode full of personal stories and serious topics, and about how video games can be rewarding in ways other than simple fun.

This podcast is not intended to be medical or psychiatric advice, but you may find it illuminating all the same.

Featuring: Hilary Andreff, Lucy Gray, Alana Hagues, Jo Padilla, Zach Wilkerson
