REALITY IS BROKEN
For Most Of Us guys today, Gaming has taken over complete chunks of our Lives.
Be it Radical Socializing or an Escape to a more tolerable Universe or a Stress Buster or For the single Dominating reason of avoiding studying/homework.
There is a Myriad of games out there for Every Insatiable appetite for Destruction,Construction,Racing, Hording,etc etc.
The Fast Gaining Multiplayer culture has given rise to Two of the Most Well known Titles in recent Gaming History::
These Two Low Graphic Games are seen running on nearly every laptop in the Hostel and in Gaming Parlors with gangs of kids shrieking,bellowing and COMPLETELY Losing their head over .
Be whatever it may, there’s an ever increasing influence on our daily lives…so much so, We’re not sure which is real anymore..
However, All through our lives we’ve been dismissed,condemned and told off with ‘You’re wasting time’ or ‘That is Completely Useless’.
That, coming from a whole generation of folks blowing up frogs or endlessly playing stuff like board games or some shit… In truth, it’s just the emotional baggage of being condemned in their own time which they associate with the constant need to Restrain our free will now…So IGNORE ALL THAT.
There are People on our side of course and that’s Not just the game developer dudes or the nice folks at Landmark who don’t have a clue if your configuration would support the game or not.
At this point, I have to quote a certain Superwoman, Jane McGonial who is Incredibly Beautiful , Confident and she’s on a mission…To convince the world that Playing Games IS The Single Most Productive way to Spend Our Time.
I know what you’re thinking, But This is NO JOKE…She really is Serious about this mission and If you’ve read This far and not Googled her picture already, Here is her website: http://janemcgonigal.com/
DO watch that 20 minute lecture she gives in TED talks…FYI, that speech was ranked #16 best speech in TED…Who came #17 ?..The Guy who’s OS you run.
For those who find the lecture Too tedious(Not possible after 1.30) , Here’s an Excerpt from her speech as to Exactly How we’re influenced by Games :-
Just to say, There’s No Friggin Reason for Us to Stop Gaming further but instead, We have FOUR Concrete Reasons for us to continue !..And that’s not even getting into the abstract line between improved Hand-Eye Coordination and a prolonged finger sore.
And So, In the spirit of having Nothin Better To Do ,
GAME OOOON BROTHERS !!!!!!!!!!!
