Everyone Wants to be a Hero: How Games are Shaping the World We Live In

Everyone Wants to be a Hero: How Games are Shaping the World We Live In

Video games are an attractive mix of fantasy, escapism, fun, and healthy competition. There’s a wide range of genres to choose from, so everyone can find something suitable for them. There’s flight simulators, arcade racing, puzzle games, adventures, platformers, shooters… you name it. But no matter which one you pick, they all have something in common, which is allowing you to play as the hero of the story.

On being a hero

There’s something attractive about being the star of your own show. The world bends to your rules and the others adapt to your needs (not the other way around like it mostly tends to be in the real world). The dynamics of the world dictate that not everyone can be a leader; in fact, most of the people are followers, not leaders. But the world of gaming acts as an escape from all of this, even if it’s just for a short while. In any case, it’s a great way to unwind after a long day at work.

Expensive gaming gear is no longer needed

In the past, being able to play video games meant investing a heavy load of money into getting a gaming computer or the latest gaming console. While there are still some gamers who stand behind the notion that there is no true gaming experience without the most expensive gaming paraphernalia like keyboards, headsets, and mice, none of it is needed to take part. If you don’t feel the need to play the latest games released, even a cheap computer or an older generation of gaming consoles will do just fine. Either that, or you can get a good smartphone (they are not that expensive either). Speaking of which…

Mobile gadgets and gaming on the go

Smart devices are not only relatively cheap, they also allow you to play video games irrespective of your current physical location. And mobile games are some of the finest games the world has to offer, it’s not just the traditional simple Tetris or Snake arcade-type games the old cellphones could run before the smartphone era. For example, you can be the hero in Final Fantasy 15, a game where strategy, fantasy, and HD graphics meet to create an impressive experience you can share with other players.

The competitive world of eSports

Through games like these, you can find out you’re the type of person who’s built for competition and competitive gaming in general. The world of eSports is getting bigger day by day, and through various online and offline tournaments, the players all around the world compete against each other to find out who is the best of them all. Be vary, however; being an eSports level player means long hours of dedication, studying the game, and sometimes, little sleep. In other words, it’s a great way to test yourself and see what you’re made of, but be prepared to sacrifice a large portion of your life to keep your gaming skills on par with the rest of the cast.

As you can see, gaming can be a form of relaxation, a way of learning something new (like how to pilot a plane), or even a means to test your skills against the other players. The fantastic new digital era is finally upon us, and it’s going to offer even more gaming possibilities in the future. Without a shred of doubt, gaming is shaping the world we live in. Are you ready to embrace it?
