The Poll Question is one year old today! Your birthday is a normal time to ask questions about life, the universe and everything. SO today’s questions tries to do that!
This week’s poll question is:
What’s the meaning of life for SP FPS gamers?
For those also searching for the answer please be advised that 42 is not the answer, although it would make a great name for a game!
We all have various ways of playing an SP FPS game. I’ve listed just some.
There are some among us that live to Speed Run, I myself am ambivalent to getting through a game as quickly as possible. No doubt these devotees claim they replay the game at normal speed but I fear that their minds is already tainted with the spedd fixation!
I have to admit that occasionally I feel the need, nay, compulsion to destroy all enemies that stand in my path. In fact I actively go looking for any foes that may be slightly timid! Gotta be in the right frame of mind for this though.
I had a great time reaching the shore of Lost Coast without cheating. I have little doubt that most players of Lost Coast have done the same but it gave me some satisfaction that I reached an area that wasn’t designed for a player to reach. Are you the sort of player looking to go where no man has gone before?
Is there anything more frustrating than knowing an area exists but not being able to find the path there? How many have resorted to walkthroughs or dare I say it “console commands”! It has to be said there is a certain satisfaction in finding these sorts of things, although I can’t believe that all can be found be normal playing.
Know who did what, when, with whom, why and where can be very important for a game. Or it can be the end in itself. Does it really matter how old Gordon Freeman was when pushed the material into the test chamber? Perhaps yes.
When I play I am almost total immersed. I’m sure somebody should use me as a test subject for this sort of thing because I become completely unaware of my surroundings.
Is there something I’ve missed? Now’s your chance to ensure the world (Well, a few thousand readers, anyway!) knows about it. Be clear and concise and no foul language!
