Nothing says relaxation better than breaking away from the stressful tasks of daily life and immersing yourself into a different world. One where you make the rules and see out your own decisions. One where you can feel like top dog. That’s why after a days work and trials I like to relax and start up my console and play some video games. My favorite type of video games are the ones that are like a second world, one where you can truly immerse yourself into. Get lost! A game like FarCry 3. With it’s beautiful graphics and stunning visuals, I’ll be questioning whether or not I would like to partake in my usual daily rituals. Or stay in this world, one where I’m the heroine.
I prefer games like this, it’s the ultimate immersion. Do what you want, and be who you want. Games like shooters I’ll play if I need to get my frustrations out. Pwning randoms online, getting top score and aiming for the highest K/D. It’s the utmost pleasure to be the smack talker, than to be the smack talk-ee. Maybe even fighting games sometimes too. Visualize the person that gave you the most stress that day. Now paste their head over Ryu’s in Street Fighter and go to town on them.
But games like FarCry 3… The scenery, the characters, the fact that 99.9% of this island’s wildlife wants me dead! For the sake of relaxation I will take this heavy task. Nothing is more fun then exploring a vast open world game; doing the main story line, or whatever it as I please. Countless hours I can spend on end with this, but sadly… My life just knocked on the door and I have to go back to the stress of the real world. But when I get back home… And I will. I will become that heroine again!
How do you unwind after a long day?
