Home Alone Served With A Delicious Gaming Experience
From the perspective of the classic horror-movie villain:
“I’ve been observing this household for quite some time now. Sneaking around the back of house at dusk and positioning myself at the window where the most frequent conversations occur. All these plans and whispers coming through the curtains with plain silhouettes providing me with vital information of the perplexed inhabitants. Patience will be vital in my quest for riches and bloodshed. I saw the family wander off in their minivan to their luxurious Maldives. Despite the lack of pulsating hearts waiting to be pierced with my switchblade; I will welcome myself into this home away from home. As I climb through another window around the back they so cluelessly left open in the rush to avoid the traffic, I hear a muffled sound emitting from an adjacent room. I turn around the corner and someone hollered at me to stop exactly where I am standing. What is going on here? They all left and yet someone saw me in these charcoal shadows. I follow the muffling sounds. As I enter the aforementioned room, my eyes are treated to a young man who didn’t join the rest of the folk in their time of recreation. He’s staring at a screen excreting monstrous sounds. Nerve-wrecking, even by my standards. For once, I don’t know how to proceed.”

Following that rather lengthy introduction, I want to talk today about staying at home alone and playing games with no one around; doing as you please.
Two weekends ago I was able to play The Last Of Us with no one around and I could set the volume high, sneaking around Clickers with slightly soiled pants.
Despite having the luxury to have the whole house to myself, I really enjoyed playing through this great and tension-oozing game. The choice of game made it all the better.
In my opinion, the immersion was quadrupled due to my being alone. It was much easier to be in game than it would have been if the folks were around. You may immerse yourself in pretty much any game, but this heavily-detailed and believable world was the ideal one to become lost within.
All of this bantering brings me to my question to you, dear readers, have you ever found yourself within a gaming world with the entire house to yourself and noticing the mountainous change in your gaming experience?
I know I can.
