Game the System

Marc Bell

Here at Game the System, we have a passion for the people that play. We want to explore what that means, and why it’s important.

Why do we play games? What does it mean to us? Have they made an impact on decisions in life - relationships, careers?

There are many ways to look at games - their development, release, and comparisons with their contemporaries. Here at Game the System, we feel the story only starts here. It’s now the players who build on this creation and make it a full experience. One that can capture the imagination and change lives for thousands of individuals.

Let's talk about that and share why we play.
