People Played More In Person Games
Some people still love to indulge in board game nights. But before our modern entertainment outlets, people were needing to pass the time with more basic entertainment. You needed to call your friends, meet up with them in person, and then put a board game in front of you. If you wanted to play multiplayer games, you had to gather all of your friends together and make a night out of it. There was no easy access to the internet or the ability to click a button and sit in front of your friends, or strangers, and play a game (The Gamer).
