We all love games, whether you have been gaming all your life or just play casually. But why exactly do we like sitting in front of our computer or TV so much? Here are five good reasons why you love games!
1 – Escapism
One of the reasons we like to play so much, is that these virtual worlds offer a kind of escapism. We can leave the normal world behind us and be somebody we could never be in real life. Escapism is actually a wonderful thing and this might only get stronger with the coming of Virtual Reality.
2 – Accomplishment
It’s awesome to win in a game. Don’t you just love it when you finally kill that difficult boss in Bloodborne? Or when you destroy other players in your favourite shooter? It might be a meaningless accomplishment in the grand scheme of things but it feels damn good nonetheless.
3 – Relate
When you are playing a game with an incredible story, you will start to feel attached to the characters. After spending dozens of hours with them, you really understand their feelings and know what drives them. Think about games like Final Fantasy, Heavy Rain or Red Dead Redemption, characters from these games are not necessarily likeable, but you can relate to them.
4 – Wonder
Virtual worlds are sometimes dreamlike, filled with magic and wonder. Look at games like Trine or Ori & The Blind Forest. Games like that can be absolutely ridiculous but when the world, colors, and music fit together so perfectly you simply don’t want to leave.
5 – Loot
And if you are not the emotional type of player, there’s always the satisfaction of collecting stuff. You earn experience points, find new weapons and gear to make your character stronger. The power of loot is not to be underestimated. Everybody loves to open a chest and everybody loves loot. Yesss… admit it… you do too!
