If for some reason you’ve been running low on reasons to play video games, Thursday is National Video Games Day.

Folks are turning to social media to express their appreciation for their favorite games, past and present. 

A 2018 study from Electronic Entertainment Design and Research found that 67% of Americans play video games. Many on Twitter were quick to remind that video game appreciation is a constant state for many gamers out there. 

And for those keeping close tabs at home, if it feels as if we were just celebrating video games on social media, that’s because National Video Game Day (note the crucial lack of an “s” on “game”) wass July 8.
