What is Gaming?

Gaming is the act of playing video games.

Well that was my definition as a kid.

Once upon a time Gaming was something only a number of finite people did . It was a fun hobby only for geekiest of geeks.

But nowadays all sort of people game. And by “Sort” meaning everybody. But the question is what type of gamer are you?.

As the title above said there are several types of gamers around and here are 10 I’ve spotted

10.  Casual

temple-run-android-google-play

They are gamers who don’t have any favorite type of game because they haven’t played one, watch video game contents on YouTube or Twitch and believe playing shooter games would make you violent.

They have high scores in games like Temple Run, Candy Crush, Angry Birds. Well basically they press One or Two buttons.

 

9. Hardcore

Theses are gamers they would prefer to build their own desktop rig that is perfectly designed to handle the latest games.  For them gaming is all and be all. Console gaming isn’t enough.

8. Story obsessive

 

These gamers play games just for amazing storyline presentation. They don’t get crazy about what platform they game is on. Most of this gamers play RPG or JRPG in particular every moments counts, no detail should be missed and no skip on the cut scenes. Gaming is like a movie to them.

7. Online Only

vlcsnap-2016-08-27-17h59m59s391

Gamers that are always online busy trashing some guy or gal in an Overwatch game. For them old school gaming (no internet) is out dated. Gamers of this type are attached to MMOs and WARGAMEs.

I belong here.

 

6. All about the Graphics (Graphics Obsessive)

 

All they care about is how beautiful the game and how well detailed it is visually. These sort of gamers can have a PC or Console and wait till a group of friends show up before they next turn on their system.

They tend to buy the last games and cool accessories out in market or do a pre-order just because they need to, most don’t play games and well You know the REST.

 

5. Solo

In contrast to the online gamers these type of gamer is an old-fashioned type of person. Playing a game where the Internet is not required. Solo or solitary gamers dislike playing with others, they however prefer gaming of a Playstation 1 console to a Playstation 4, or take up a Nintendo 64 handheld game and They believe gaming show be a solo thing.

4. THE Completionist

 

The ultimate nerds gaming they take gaming to the extreme ever if the game is boring they make sure the finish the game to completion. Unlocking every level, getting a completion of 100% and unlocking every trophy available in the game.

However this type of gamers playing every mission and side quests mission till the game has non-left. To felt complete is to goto every inch of the game even when the game has multiple endings they make such they see every ending even if it means playing the game all over again.

3. ?????????

Really didn’t know what title to give this gamers.

This gamers all they do is whin, whin and whin, give all sort of complains here and there about why they didn’t win a round of Injustice 2 going on and on and on.

Gamers of the categories all you have to do is just allow them win.

2. Retro Gamers

Of all gamers they ancient of gamers. This gamers believe everything went wrong when gaming was introduced to new technology from cartridges to CD. You could have the PS3, PS4 and the Bluray, HD whatever these gamers don’t care at all.

Games like Sonic, Super Mario, Tank, Contra are believed to be the best games ever. Consoles such as Sega Mega Drive and Polystation.

1. Indie

Artistic game are of this categories. This gamers play games that aren’t mainstream yet and even when they become mainstream gamers play these games all over again.

Most Indie title games are small and very innovative. And mostly Indie games are titled indie because of poor quality and poor finances.

Other gaming governing bodies like Pan European Game Information (PEGI), Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB), UK gambling commission do not consider loot boxes as gambling.

10 BAD Gaming Habits

game-over

Some of these are quite a few of them that we gamers still might be guilty of doing.

Without further ado here we will be reading and counting down ten gaming habits that you and I should stop doing.

10. Playing Too Many Games At Once

Yes, we all have that habit of wanting to play a different game every once in a while maybe after trial and trial to get pass a stage or level in an adventure game you’re already playing.

But in truth all we need doing is just get single game and play it to the core and when tired you take a break or go take a walk.

9. Crusing

At some point we tend to cruse while gaming, now some form of crusing is maybe okay to a point but when you go abit to far you have to take a quick look at yourself at make some correction.

Most gaming tournament don’t tolerate the act of cursing while some can tolerate it to an extent. But in truth we all tend to loss it once in awhile when things do go our way.

8. Slouching

e40ze

Yep, we all do this in different situations even when not gaming.

Now, a little bit of slouching is all bad but a prolonged session of slouching can affect your spine long term leaving you in an impossible state of trying to stretching.

So remember stop prolonged slouching.

7. Increased sound volume

Blah, We all do this no arguement, all the time when we get this new shining looking headset or when we are just in the mood.

We all can find that sweet spot between a quiet & loud sound and adjust the volume.

6. Irresistilbly Restarting

Admit it we all tend to want to restart a game just because you want to a thing perfect stunt.

But what if we keeping restracting and restracting we would never reach that boss or next area we are to go.

And back when gaming was developing most games didn’t have checkpoints to help the user continue from a saved point

5. Droping/Throwing Controllers

I know for one know that I’ve never thrown a controller say across the room before but dropping a controller was always accidental.

Now the real talk is dropping or throwing a controller is all just an unnecessary thing to do because controllers are all just expensive this days especially the elite controllers.

After throwing a controller and being calm after a while all the regret start to flow.

4. Thinking You’re the Best

For whatever the reason is you simply can only be the best at moment in time, but going into a game thinking you’re the best is just SHALLOW.

3. Battle of the Systems/platform

Don’t go around trashing talking to your friends or gamers around that the system they playing on is not cool, it only makes you look like a douchebag.

Some people do prefer to play on a different console or system for resaons known to them. Others prefer the PC, others the XBOX, others Playstation etc.

2. Getting Hostile

Trashing talk is healthy in a competitive environment but you have to know what lines not to cross when’re you doing it.

You don’t want to be to cancerous in situations and not want to made an example in the process.

1. It’s just a Game

Don’t Forget THAT.

 

 

 

Gamer Problems: Then and Now

Gaming as I know was JUST fun.

But now gaming is just too competitive but still fun.

Everyday, every week and every month  a new title is released.

Less than 30 fps games used to be s**t but now 60 fps and above is the new S**T.

Gaming isn’t fun or competitive for some people but a LUXURY.

Game play used to be the thing now everyone is just after graphics, ultra high, high and others.

Well that’s that.

Below are some very less well-known things about gaming that non-gamers and veteran gamers would agree with me.

THEN: All we wish is for someone to tell or show us what to do.                                      NOW: Stop telling me what to do such as PRESS & HOLD (what ever button?)

THEN: Reach the next Save point and pray for a miracle.                                                            NOW: Autosave, you got that get use to it.

THEN: Sit on couch and wait for your own turn to play.                                                              NOW: You’re doing the waiting.

THEN: Why isn’t the story a bit longer?                                                                                      NOW: Side missions, Character missions. Go get this go get that and so on.

THEN: Send hours trying to get an item.                                                                                        NOW: Get your credit card and buy it. No time wasted.

THEN: Risk Death By Obesity.                                                                                                            NOW: Risk Death by environmental interactive games.

Well That’s that.

Till Next time. Happy Weekend.
