What day? You don't say —It's National Video Games Day

12 September 2018 by Jana SchmidJana Schmid


It sure seems these days there is a national day for everything. And a quick Google search confirms it.

Did you know there are over 1,500 national days?

I, myself am genetically predisposed to celebrate EVERYTHING! Half-birthdays — bring it. Puppy birthday cakes — but of course! National donut day — duh! Cinco de Mayo — naturally! Leap Year — what have I got to lose? Life anniversaries — sure why not.  You get the gist.

So when it popped up in my social media planning that there is a National Video Games Day, I couldn’t resist. Especially with all the work we recently have done for Proton and Steam Play.

Did you know there is not only a National Video Games Day (observed September 12), but there its cousin, National Video Game Day (observed July 8)?

Anywhoo, back to the point. Where was I? Oh yes. When I realized that the National Video Games Day was approaching I couldn’t stop myself from asking my colleagues to take a break from hacking Wine, testing CrossOver 18 and supporting our customers to take a silly 10 question (anonymous) quiz on their gaming habits. 

The results are in.
