    Two hours here…two hours there… A metric ton of time down the black hole. Where does it go? Who knows. Not into anything productive, that’s for sure. If you’re a professional gamer - it's time to stop. Video games are madly expensive. Consoles, controllers, games, accessories… all of that stuff adds up in the long run. What if you were able to use that money to buy life changing books or even fashion dolls or make-up instead? What would your life look like a year from now? Five years from now? Or even ten years from now? Just like being the child of parents who are always fighting, being in a bad environment, or spending time with the wrong people, changes you from the inside. So do video games have a bad effect on you. By being exposed to what a developer once created to get children (and people of all ages) addicted, you’re letting the characters and the world of the game take control of how you perceive reality. The more you fall in love with playing video games, the more you forget about anything else going on. What’s worst, you put off doing important things, skip events and special moments with friends and family, miss deadlines, breaking up with your wife and children and even procrastinate on your most biggest goals in life. You’re not going to build a great friendship or romantic relationship with someone through a console. You only do that through real life interactions. You can definitely meet people and talk to them over the web, but face to face is a whole different kettle of fish. And you know what, playing video games is extremely bad for your mental health. The most common symptoms are not sleeping well, be it not being able to fall asleep once in bed, having nightmares, waking up in the middle of the night, being groggy in the morning, or all of these. Playing video games ruins your peace of mind and you just can’t sleep. As a result, because your mind and body don’t get the rest they need, you’re exhausted the next day. You can’t focus well or make better decisions. That affects your work performance - which may lead to losing your job. If you’re a student, it’s a surefire way to fail your tests as you just can’t remember anything anymore and are too distracted and tired. There’s more to this, though. A study shows that this addiction can lead to actual mental health problems. When talking about young people, it interferes with their development, too. That’s the effect of playing video games. It’s your job to open your eyes and realize how this hobby is preventing you from spending your time in a better way. Once you get a taste of what’s out there, sitting down and playing video games becomes incredibly boring and unnecessary. You’ll be so used to your new life that you see you’ll have no use for it. Then, you end up selling it or giving it away - creating more room for other hobbies. So if you find yourself playing a lot of games… I’d ask you to take a hard look at your life and see if you’re using it in an attempt to compensate for some lack. If you find it hard to cut your time down, just start with cutting it by 24 hours a day. Reduce it by another 24 hours the next day, next week and even next month. Then see if you can go a year without it at all. It’s worth trying.

    Your sentiments on Risk of Rain 2 are what games should be, honestly. Games today have become this perpetually dangling carrot on a never-ending treadmill of monetization and time commitments... Much of AAA gaming has lost that appeal of just sitting back having fun for a little while.

For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30 [KJV]) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13 [KJV]) I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. (Luke 13:5 [KJV]) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23 [KJV])

    HZD is incredibly overrated. It's just another forgettable, cookie cutter open-world game. You get the boring rehashed Assassin's Creed and FarCry even if nobody cares about them anymore. They don't even shake up the formula or do anything interesting. This Ubisoft open wold rpg is the dinosaur of gaming. Sadly it refuses to die. HZD is the same shit just with different setting.

    Without criticism, nothing would evolve. I mean Assassin's Creed never would have gotten it together following the unrelenting community following Syndicate, and even then, still deserves criticism because as much of an empty and underwhelming abyss those games can be, in some parts they pack some some of the best content gaming has to offer and should be criticized to include more of that and less dumb trailing missions or monotonous dialogue sequences or vast map design for the sake of being large. As dumb as it is, without a sense of criticism, we would be left with Madden franchise BS year after year. Is it so bad that when you love something, you only want better for it?

    Wow, finally someone gives Wastelands series some praise which deserves much more. I still remember the time in Wastelands 2 when one of my character was wearing a dog collar for stat bonus, when I entered the ranger base, the ranger leader asked me "Ranger, What are you wearing there?". Still amazed by the amount of detail in those games.

    'DOOM: ETERNAL' was straight up robbed...In my opinion, it's easily the best FPS that we've seen in the last decade. The gameplay is refined to a point that is rare in the current gaming landscape. They took the basics of 'DOOM 2016' and pushed them into overdrive..such a great game. And I've gotta say, I was pleasantly surprised with 'Immortals: Fenyx Rising'. I couldn't believe that it was a Ubisoft Game. It's easily the BEST Open-world Game they've put out in the last couple of years..

    Honestly Horizon Zero dawn for me took the cake when i saw a battle between a water crab that put up a Shield and a Spinosaur or a t-rex looking Flame spitter and he looked like a charizard using flamethrower on this crab... I felt like i was watching a Pokemon battle in this game and that's when i stopped for a moment... And just watched. It was such an amazing spectacle that i was awstruck. the only issue i had with the game was that the shaders never downloaded so the loading screen took like 10+ minutes so i never finished it.. but i will once i find a fix for the shaders redownloading everytime. You say battling these monsters are magic, well i felt like watching 2 huge monsters battling it out was magical as well.. It was breath taking. But i am not sitting 10+ minutes in a loading screen, its even worse then GTA ONLINE and that's a huge weakness for me.

    The only thing that would keep me from putting FFVII Remake Part 1 on the same spot as Wasteland 3 and Ghost of Tsushima, is that it's only Part 1 of a whole game (1/3 or 1/4 of the main story depending on the changes they will make).

  • Aoyai baba
    Aoyai baba2 miesięcy temu

    Dude you sounded like you were TRYING real hard to like HZD. That game is a Ubisoft TEXT BOOK! (even though Ubisoft didn't make it) It's like someone studied at Ubisoft University, graduated, then proceed to make an EXACT COPY of Ubisoft open world game like making a can of beer after learning how to brew up beer. It's just the same beer as any other beer, nothing special, only the can looks different because there are some cool mech designs on it. It's the game that only has the surface, but if you lift that surface up the underneath is a total broken mess just like all Ubisoft craps before it. I know the feeling it's the way I feel when I play Ghost Recon Wildlands. When you load it up and just wandering around it feels awesome, really giving you that vibe of being military spec-op hiding in the jungle, steal kill people with silencer, drone scouting, sync shot and all that...then you get into a gunfight and instantly got pulled back to reality of how trash the game's design and mechanic is. These games are nice when they're presented on the stall to get you to buy it, but it crumbles down instantly when you try to put it to work.

    I gotta be honest , didn't agree with quite a few of these , BUT you're presentation is really on point and professional and doesn't feel "dry" like you're just reading from a piece of paper. Also though I HATE tactical combat your piece on wastelands 3 really made me consider getting it (rpg aspect seems really interesting). And I know I'll be getting a lot of hate , but for me goty would be cyberpunk , completed 3 times (one time doing ALL the side quests) and now waiting for a dlc to do a 4th and possibly 5th run lol
