Wolf’s Wicked Words: Preferred Gaming Districts
Like a fly, buzzing incoherently around in circles inside a white-walled room, desperately trying to find the path to his preferred patch of land; so do we all prefer our little stretch of peace and tranquillity. It goes without saying that the ordinary housefly would prefer much different circumstances than the Average Joe on the street. Same goes to the Average Joe on the street compared to the Farmer. And the same to the Farmer compared to the Passionate Gamer.
Whenever it comes to reading, watching movies, playing games and just about everything my day consists of, I prefer to be in a specific state of mind or more importantly; the circumstances should be ideal. I have no idea how people can read, and more importantly enjoy the book when there is a constant clamouring of voices combined with a neighbour grinding every piece of square-tubing known to man. This may sound like me bitching about people going about their lives, but it’s rather amazement. I’m astounded if you can read and enjoy the article or book to the fullest when the next door cat is in heat.

The same can be said about writing. Any form to elaborate or express one’s self; to me personally, requires either dead silence or music without any lyrics whatsoever. Painters and other artists would also like to have their creative expanse to be ideal to them.
Gaming may be looked at the same way. I have an ideal way to go about my gaming and so do you. Some people prefer the complete immersion with no one distracting them. It’s just you and the game. I think this may be the case with me. I’m very picky about playing games online, unless it’s multiplayer. I love me some co-op with the online oaks, but I find it very hard to enjoy a game when it’s a story focused experience or single player at that, while someone is talking in my ear. Again, not complaining, it’s just the way I prefer my gaming.
The person who inspired this topic feels rather different towards it; compared to me. He prefers to be online while he’s gaming and takes frequent breaks every now and then. This results in not being / feeling disconnected from the world.
Another development that piqued my interest was when I looked at different genres. The more I began to think about it, the more I realized that most multiplayer games tended to bring a more chatty vibe to the gamers. (Co-op. Not competitive multiplayer. Competitive games tend to bring out the worst in some gamers. We’re rather lucky not to have the ability to throw objects very far with precision. More and more people would have broken bottles lodged into their craniums due to competitive / online gaming.)
Rhythm games make for some great memories at social gatherings. (Even if I’m so not good at it.) Sports games are also known to add something extra to a party.
Enlighten us, what are your favourite gaming surroundings and the overall mood you long for when playing games?
Since last week, every other game was forced to a back-seat position to make way for the oh, so great; Borderlands 2. Seriously, I’m totally bonkers about it. I haven’t played nearly as much as I wanted to, but I’ll get Handsome Jack sooner rather than later.
I’d like to take this moment and salute Gearbox Software for a truly magnificent experience so far, and what makes me even more excited is that a very reliable source told me that I haven’t even scratched the surface. Apparently, I haven’t seen anything yet. If you’re able to do so, go get this game; it’s got my recommendation without any doubt whatsoever.
