Continuing the first part of the Game series and the journey to recover my childhood dream, I would like to speak with you today.
By the time Game maintenance, I have the opportunity to sit back and reflect on the process of gaming over my 25 years. Perhaps for most gamers, the question is still what do we play games for? Play games for fun, kill time, or feel the game’s good that people around do not understand.
For me, games are fun, life is there, and there are times when we get lost.
Don’t get me wrong; getting lost here is not falling in the same way as the trickster that our people call the wall fall. Getting lost here means there are times when I think deeply immersed in the game and think, what if it becomes part of everyday life.
With many players of Final Fantasy, Legend of Dragoon, Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Contra,… indeed the familiar names. Do you guys from ages 7x and 8x remember Rinoa from Final Fantasy 8? I must say that when the game launched even a year later, many gamers were bewildered by this girl. Many people at that time often told me, “I must love Rinoa, bro,” and of course, among those passionate fans, it is indispensable for me.
There will be times when we fall in love with a virtual character but don’t play!
When I bought the Xbox One, among the first games I chose were Mad Max and Metal Gear Solid V. Still, I have not been able to complete these two games so far. If I say the reason not to finish these two games, it is probably because I have lost my way in the game. Indeed, friends, talking about the similarities, both of these games have the similarity is a large desert, strangely detailed. If you like the open-world sandbox genre, you will understand what I mean.
Game and the journey to recover your childhood dream – Part 1 Read it slowly, relax with a cup of tea or coffee – butting beef or Monster is not bad, and contemplate the process of playing the game from past to present.
Mad Max takes us to the post-apocalyptic era. When the earth is destroyed by ourselves, our depleted resources and climate change make the world a desert. A famine takes place everywhere.
A ruined post-apocalyptic world
When I got lost, I wandered in the endless desert, rummaging, searching like the character of Max Mad in the game. Find water, find life, find the remaining resources of a bygone era. The more I learn, the more I immerse myself in the world of gaming because it’s so real. There are times when I climb to the top of the plane covered in the golden sand of the desert to see the vast sky. At times I scoured the huts, the cottage to find remnants of the previous world. That was when I was obsessed because it was so real, and I wondered if this was the future that awaited us?
Old photos (history relics) are always the ones that make me (or the character Max) ask myself:
Is the dream of a small family too far away?
Max, my mom, misses you, come back soon.
When hunger strikes, people can eat everything, including the pets they once cherished.
Discontent is everywhere. People are against each other.
With Metal Gear Solid 5, I became the Big Boss of Diamond Dog Force, a spy force specializing in dangerous missions worldwide. The game took me to the Afghanistan desert and the African jungle with fictional locations in MGS5. When playing the game, I feel like a true super spy when I exist in the wild. The skills of hiding, assassination, and intrusion are maximized.
This game is polished graphics very carefully to each branch, blade of grass, except for the main tasks that need to be completed in time, and the side quests, I can freely experience nature.
One person, one horse, is very good at salads.
Bears may not be available, but dogs must have one.
Assassination, intrusion no less than the real spy
Enjoy climbing to watch the sunrise.
In a way, saying the game is a companion is not unethical. However, like real-life friends, this companion does not always bring laughter and joy. Sometimes it accidentally touches the deep sadness in each of our hearts along with the hidden tears that few can understand?
