Might try to play Final Fantasy XV this year despite not being a fan of the series (I’ve only played two of them). Prompto’s photography really made that game stand out to me. I loved seeing the photos people would share, and I’ve always liked taking photos in games.

Halo 3’s Theater mode actually made me fall in love with photography. I used to go in after a fun match and fly around the action, taking dramatic shots and filming Warthog chase scenes. Ended up figuring out a lot about the basics of composition thanks to that.
