I have decided to make this post based on recent discoveries I have made in my life. I’ve been playing games for a long time, since I was maybe ten years old. (I can’t really remember these days). I believe once you’ve played a lot, you develop a wide spectrum of what makes a game fun and enjoyable, and what games appeal to you.
However I feel now I have reached a point in my life where I am ready to move on to something else. I love games, but I know that its more the music and atmosphere that has always appealed to me (not necessarily the game itself). I feel my interests are changing now and that I would be more interested in sound design for games and being part of a develpment team, rather than playing the games as a hobby.
Somehow I also feel that this is coming at the right time, as it seems a new generation of gaming is upon us with the new consoles coming out (PS4 etc.) and I don’t really feel that I need to be part of this.
It’s really strange for me to say all this, as I have always played games. I think its come about because I have recently being playing Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and while I love the atmosphere, colours and the beautiful music…..I think the game itself is a bit boring now…it just doesn’t seem to interest me like it did.
I do know that games can be very addictive and I am testament to that. When I feel not willing to face reality, low mood and anxiety, it can be easy for me to fall into games, and I could play all day if I wanted to. But I feel this is all changing now, as its not necessary to do all of that anymore. You feel me?
Games and the memories it holds will always have a place, and what I am going to do is create a review of sorts of the different games I’ve played in my lifetime, and explain what I thought was magical about them. I’ve played on N64, Gamecube and PS3 consoles.
So I hope people aren’t offended by this post, I got no problems with games and I don’t think there bad, I’m just interested in other things now.
