Did we choose gaming or did gaming choose us?
For one reason or another we all have taken our rightful place in the brotherhood and or sisterhood of elites. We all picked up the gamepad and promised not put it down until our mission was complete.
Your mission depended on the game that you were playing and the role that you were assigned. If you were playing a shooting game, you were assigned to kill the opposing team, or simply to cooperate with your team members to make sure a specific task was handled. If you were playing an adventure game, you were tasked with making it through to the end of the level to make the story progress. Finally, as a combatant in a fighting game you promised to do your best by finishing your rival.
We are all connected to one another with a membership that is free and guarantees you will make a friend or two along the way. Stuck on a level? Ask a fellow gamer. Want to know how a game is before you take the leap in purchasing it? Ask a fellow gamer.
There’s something about getting immersed in an interactive story that’s rewarding. Escaping reality for whatever reason will do you good. Some have even taken their declaration even further by pledging that they are gamer’s for life.
This means they are down for the cause and in it to win it. One benefit of being a part of this is that you can make friendships that could last a lifetime.
Sure I exaggerated a bit here but you get my point. It’s all in fun.
What are your thoughts on gaming?
Do you feel that it’s not that serious?
Have you became friends with the people you play online with in real life? Did you take the gamer’s declaration?
