The Experience Is What You Make It
I’ve been known to be positive over a lot of games that other people just downright hated. It’s not that I’m positive over every game I play, however. Hell, I’ve played so many that there has to be a sizable amount that I just absolutely hate. And there is. But I am admittedly a bit more lenient towards a lot of games. I do see their faults, quite clearly, but I choose to ignore them in favour of the overall experience. I would rather look at the big picture rather than go down to a smaller scale and analyse things there. I don’t think it makes me a worse gamer. On the contrary, in fact. It’s obvious that because I look at games in a more positive light that I get a lot more quality experiences out of my gaming. But I also understand that the experience is what you make it.
I’ve attacked people that were a little too critical over games I liked because I felt like they didn’t see the bigger picture and rather focused too much on the finer details. I’ve stopped thinking that now because I realised that I won’t change their opinion of a game and they will certainly not change mine. We both got our own experiences out of the game and they are our own. I absolutely loved the new DmC, but someone else might think it was average or boring. So be it, I say. I played the game, I loved it. You played the game, you didn’t like it. We can coexist in this world without going at each other’s throats.

There hasn’t been a game made where every gamer was in equal agreement. There will always be someone that will say they didn’t like the game. Sometimes they just do it for attention, but you can spot that pretty quickly when you see that they hardly ever played the game. There will be people that played a game all the way through and still didn’t like it. Those people I can respect. Like I said, the experience is what you make it and if you didn’t like it, that was your experience. Simple as that.
I truly wish that more people can see this. Just because I said I liked Assassin’s Creed 3, you should not come at me with your facts and your opinion for why it sucked so much that kugelblitz might get self-concious. Nothing you can say will rid me of my experience. Sure, I might have seen the faults that the game has and would most likely agree with some of the points being made, but I still had a good time. You will never see me type out “Yeah, I enjoyed the game before, but in light of this recent evidence you have given me, I have decided that it was one of the worst games I have ever played in my life.” That will never happen.
The reverse can be said as well. If someone says that they didn’t like BioShock Infinite, which I thoroughly enjoyed, I should not go up to them and spew all my opinions out for why it’s the best game ever and their opinion is obviously wrong. They didn’t like the game because of their own reasons and I will never get them to change their mind, no matter how hard I try.
We humans like to contend with each other’s mindset. We want to be right and people that don’t see it that way are obviously wrong. How do you think World War 2 started? But if we just learned to accept each other’s opinions and move on with our lives then things can be so much better. You have your experience and that is something you own. It’s yours. Nobody can steal it or take it away from you.
