Why am I starting a game company?

Incidentally I have a ‘real job’, in the financial services industry which I am good at and do not hate.  But despite the safety and security of the day job it just does not keep me interested.  Something more creative is needed.  I crave something more.  What has so captivated my attention about game design?  Why do I make games?  For that matter, why does anyone?

There are so many things that it could be.  But lets strip away all the bullshit reasons, vanity, peer pressure, ‘cool’, why anyone does something.  Read Fuck Videogames.  What are you left with? Make good art.  Each of these pieces of advice are powerful alone.  But are especially so when combined.
