How Disney’s Dreamlight Valley made me feel like a kid again

Every time I play a new video game, I try to capture the feeling I had when I played it when I was younger. That feeling when you’re staring at a screen and nothing else around you matters.

After years of trying to get that magic back, I finally found it when I picked it up Disney’s Dreamlight Valley (opens in a new tab).

Growing up, I was an only child who lived with a single parent who worked full time which made me feel very lonely. I often sought solace in the media surrounding me, and since it was the 1990s, that media had something to do with Disney. At that time, Disney was everywhere, from the cartoons I watched on Saturday mornings to the clothes I wore, the movies I watched at the theater, and the video games I played.

One of my earliest gaming memories is playing Capcom’s Aladdin for SNES (opens in a new tab). The movie the game is based on was the first movie I ever saw in the cinema. I was obsessed until the Genie backpack I proudly took to school every day.
