    Obvious answer is probably boredom? but you may play them to socialise, meet new friends, release some stress, break away from reality and so on..

    They help distract me from my OCD and panic attacks. When I was at my worst with them, gaming was one of the only few escapes I had from the conditions and it gave me an outlet.

    I obviously mainly play them because I enjoy them as I play them when I am fine too but I can't deny how great games have been to me as a stress reliever.

    I just enjoy gaming.

    I've made many good friends through games. I've got to enjoy many interesting and different experiences through games. Sometimes it serves as an escape, sometimes it kills time.

    I am so happy that you can use games as an outlet to escape from your condition. I used to have OCD but its actually slowly started to fade away.
