The best games are like the best books. You can get lost in their immersive worlds for hours without looking up. The characters are so vivid and the narrative is so surprising, twisty, and well thought out that you’re left inspired, fulfilled, and rapt. When it’s over, you think to yourself, “That was the ride of a lifetime. Also, have I eaten today?” And yes, I’m talking about the experience of playing the 1996 Tomb Raider game. The well-rendered graphics are easy to lose yourself in!
No wonder there is a rabid and ever-expanding community of gamers eager to discuss, debate, and share their hot takes on the games we’re all playing. The internet is rife with discourse, and the best memes are borne of discourse. So enjoy this treasure trove of the best gaming memes of the week, as you take off your headphones and lay down the controller.
