Last time I wrote a personal piece it rambled into me getting older and bitterer, not only that I also moaned about the lack of time gaming. This time, I will be addressing the same bloody matters, this time you have been warned.
Time is a precious commodity that we should never waste; our precious little time we get to ourselves should be spent doing things we love. Many of us will have that special someone who loves to spend all the time that you physically can with you; it is also a bonus if they are a gamer themselves. Though we don’t always play the same genres, games or even platforms as each other; you both have an understanding that there is a release in gaming.
Games such as Minecraft show an excellent joint adventure where players can work together or simply share a playing space for a couple. There is nothing wrong with spending time in a virtual world with your real life other half, the opposite true as well; people who meet their significant other online are a modern day fairy tale (assuming it lasts).
I am not saying to use online gaming as a shady and weird form of online dating, I would just rather people were honest about the enjoyment when sitting down to venture out into a game world.
I understand this is all a bit rambling, but I just wanted to type something that was not just another announcement article of some sort.
I have enjoyed venturing out onto Sea of Thieves a lot, I do mean A LOT. This game is not the bland and boring concept that people have accused it of being; the game is more a long term concept of a living breathing world. I enjoy this because I know I have friends who will drop whatever game they are playing to join the crew and head out into the world. I regularly enjoy the adventure myself, Lewy and the viewers on his channel who join in the escapades.
The sailing mechanics in this game work exceptionally well, with the game making the studio once proud after the dark days of the Kinect developments. The scope of their vision for this game have made them once again a respected body within the industry and shows us that gradually releasing content is a good way to create longevity for a title rather than a massive content dump at the beginning and the player base dying off quickly after.
I suppose the point of this article was really to make sure you are correctly allocating your “you time” to what makes you happy. The world is a god awful place; there is no need to get dragged down into it more often than you have to. Fill your gaming space with people who you enjoy playing with; make sure your online community is a friendly and positive one. These are experience that you will be more likely to enjoy and share on a regular basis.
Thanks for reading my ramblings and I will be sure to get in touch with people who have opinions of their own on these matters.
