I am having an issue implementing react routes

Hello all. Pardon me but it’s my first time here and I already made a post about this on Codecademy. I’m currently going to a front end engineer cert and I am working on an open ended project related to creating your own reactjs app with createReactApp, npm, so on and so forth. Anyway, I am gonna go ahead and copy and paste my thread I made on Codecademy because I think I summed up the problem pretty well there:

Hello everyone. I was doing one of the open ended projects in the Front End Engineer course syllabus related to creating your own react app from scratch and posting it to github and netlify. I like these open ended projects because they allow a great deal of creative freedom. Anyway, I am so very close to creating my very first website now. It is called the VideoGame Museum. It’s just a somewhat simple top 10 list of my favorite video games with each video game having their own page with a little mini review and some info on where to buy the games if people wanna try them out.

I’ve also been continuing my studies while working on the project and learned about React Router and all of its various components. Anyway, I am running into an issue now where I’ve imported all the individual pages (each named after the respective video game with the .js file extension name) and wrapped the main App return () section with <BrowserRouter> ...</BrowserRouter>

The intended functionality of this is to make photos of the various video games clickable and have them take you to the page I wrote up for each video game (all with their own JS functions, which I imported to App.js).

I hope I’ve made myself clear enough. Please let me know if you need me to explain further. Anyways, continuing on…

So I want to make each game image clickable and have the click send me to each game’s respective .js function and right now they are not. Can you all take a look at my code and let me know why believe these Links are not rendering the intended functions?

I’ve imported all the necessary React functions to App.js, index.js, and the .js files for each game page that I created. I feel so close to getting the intended result I’ve been trying to reach for this past week or so, but needing a bit more guidance.

Here’s the code:

        <h1>Welcome to Elias L. Turner's VideoGame Museum</h1>
         My name is Elias, and I have been a gamer since I was 5 years old.
<br /><br />
My first video game console was the Nintendo Game Boy Color. It was a see through purple system and the first couple of games I got with the system included Kirby Tilt n Tumble, Megaman Xtreme, and Formula 1. It really helped me pass the time in my childhood, considering that I was homeschooled and had a lot of free time on my hands despite my parents' best efforts.
        <br />
        <br />

    I made this website as a tribute to some of my favorite games that I've played in my 28 years on this bizarre planet. You will notice that most of the games are not super new or high-tech--This is because I don't place undue emphasis on graphics and gimmicks unlike a lot of modern gamers. I also don't have much time to play modern games these days considering that I work two jobs, so I can't comment on some of the great games that I'm sure have been released recently. All I know is that this list of games are some that were the most influential to me in my upbringing (being babysat by my video game consoles).

Below is a list of my top 10 favorite videogames of all time. I hope you enjoy checking out this top 10 countdown. <br /> <br /> Thank you and have a lovely day.

Here is a photo of what my website looks like (from the top of the homepage). It still needs some finishing touches but I want those images to load their own js functions that I imported into the app.js file when I click on them (photo attached to my post)my react app created with createReactApp
