I'm having an unexpectedly emotional reaction to playing Beat Saber. It's an amazing game in its own right, but it took me a while to figure out why it's affected me in such a positive way.

I used to play percussion instruments professionally and have had to slow way down at a pretty young age (41) due to arthritis. This game makes me feel like I'm performing again without the traumatic impact to my hands. I've had moments playing that game where I almost broke down crying.
