Adrenaline is contagious, and if we add to that the fact that nowadays we can play with anyone, regardless of where in the world they are connecting from, then we can say that this is one of the best times to be a gamer. It isn't true? And for the same reason, we also deserved to live our moment.

Let's learn a little more about World Gamer Day, and along the way, it left you some recommendations and one or another promotion that you can't miss.
Are you ready? Go for it.
Where did World Gamer Day come from?
As I told you at the beginning, many yesterdays ago, when mothers sent us for milk and we spent money on slot machines, video games were considered just entertainment. Nobody took the activity too seriously and, in fact, we were judged a lot for “wasting time in front of the TV screen.” The good thing is that as time went on, people not only started to get more and more interested in gaming, but they also discovered that the activity not only attracted other people, but that you could also make some money from it.
Of course, the pioneers in this whole thing won't let us lie. The first years were complicated and the profits received were minuscule, compared to what any streamer achieves today. Fortunately, for us, legends like El Rubius, Pewdiepie and other gamers did not give up, and so 2008 arrived. The year that decided everything.
It was the middle of that year, when the magazines PC Manía, PlayManía and Hobby Consolas realized that the community was growing at an impressive speed and, therefore, they came up with THE idea: Why not implement a commemorative day for the gamers?
The rest, as they say, is history.
More than 13 years have passed since World Gamer Day was founded, and as you can see, we continue to celebrate August 29 in style, with increasingly realistic graphics and adventures that would blow the minds of the first console manufacturers. .
As you can see, the day did not arise by chance, nor is it a coincidence that we are about to experience another hilarious gamer's day. However, then there is no shortage of those who do not know what to do to celebrate the day.
