The Evil Within
After getting home from a long day at work making someone else a lot of money I like to unwind and immerse myself within the gaming world.
Whether that is by indulging myself in a sea of rainbow colours whilst aimlessly chilli-bombing jack-hammering zombie engineers that have acid induced sceneries or casually decapitating multiple enemies with a katana whilst injecting myself with Sherlock's finest.
I use this as a way to escape the mundaneness of reality, whilst this is obviously a hindrance to my girlfriend who doesn't quite understand my need to have multiple relationships and father children from all corners of Albian whilst searching every nook and cranny to find that last orb to complete an otherwise already completed game.
I do this because it relaxes me and puts me in a better frame of mind, with that being said this is my single player experience which brings me onto the multiplayer side of my gaming life. The can of worms which is my Pandora’s box.
I love gaming, I grew up with it however none of my friends and family did, I am a 'geek' but balance this with my other life which consists of playing a decent level of football with a great bunch of people which in turn leads to a great social life a world apart from my secret life of gaming.
Whilst this is great it puts me at a disadvantage for multiplayer games, TA has vastly improved this as I can locate people who want to do the same thing. I have meet some great people but still enjoy playing on my own as well and distance myself from negativity which seems to be thrift within this community.
Therefore games like Titanfall which require a team work ethic are rage inducing, there is only so much one person can do against six when your team decide that they are struggling to tie their laces let alone shoot in a straight line. I enjoy Titanfall but do not enjoy other people who struggle with the underlining concept of games like this.
This sort of experience has pushed me towards less ‘popular’ games and I am thankful for this as I have played some absolute diamonds which I may not have had the foresight to do otherwise. Don’t get me wrong I like multiplayer games just not necessarily everything that can come from them, the completionist within me may be irony at its purest as I will no doubt continue to inflict unnecessary torture on myself in order to achieve that elusive 100% (Here’s looking at you Fight Night Round 4).
Thanks for reading I may have to have a look at a top 5 for the above to further release the frustration they can cause, that or I could just start a newly released video game and let someone else struggle with the evil within.
