For some of us, the screenshot button that most games feature is essentially a way to save embarrassing or inflammatory conversations for later laughter or blackmail. But for other players, it's the window into a game and it will be worn down to a nub before too long. Whatever your program of choice, some players bring out their inner photographer in-game, producing galleries of images rendered with astonishing care and attention to detail.
Of course, screenshots are a great way to get a sense for the look of the game, and having a large collection of them is certainly an advantage when you're writing for a site that uses a lot of different shots as header images
. Much like any other part of the game, some players love it and some players kind of ignore it. So where do you fall? Do you absolutely adore capturing screenshots? Or is it something that just happens occasionally, sometimes accompanied by looking back and wishing you'd gotten a picture?
