Gaming addiction is different from online gaming addiction, Yes it’s true, they are not the same. I’ll explain why they both were different. I’m talking about all the games, Pc games, Mobile games, and Console games.
Evey game industry using the same principle and psychology to get us addicted to their games. – free games to play, Are they really free?
How Online Game’s made us an Addict.
The online game’s primary goal is to make people play the game again and again, By which they can make money by selling their unwanted stuff, or premium passes or whatever they used to sell in the name of that game.
Have you got “winner winner chicken dinner” or “Victory Royal” or any other winning quote from online games? These were the kind of addiction, where we like to get that again and again.
If you won a match, you will play again to get the same dopamine, in your brain. You used to be get addicted.
Online Gaming is a Greedy Playground
Have you seen anyone saying that “i have this skin, you know how hard to get this skin?”. actually he spend more money that you, to get that skin.
People used to spend money to make them look cool, Sounds like “I have more than you, loooserrrrr”. it sounds the same as the real-world scenario.
Do you remember the time, were we used to see the guy who completed Super Mario as a great gamer? Where is that now?
Playing Online With Friends
There are some good points and some bad points on this topic.
Playing with friends will build a good relationship and a great way to spend time with your friends.
The bad part of the game is, Everybody want’s to be a star. Have you see your friend claiming “dude, have u seen my kills.” and “I am the only one who will save u”.
We cant change these people, but they make the game toxic and uncomfortable for some people.
It’s an online game, where we used to play with friends for fun, not for deciding, who is the best gamer in the gang?
So online gaming is a platform where people used to look cool by spending more, and it will make a bad relationship if you take it too seriously.
I am not complaining about all the online games, there are some great online games, and many skillful players were there.
There are still people used to play offline games to enjoy their time, Most Nerds used to spend their time on offline games or the online game which dont have In game purchases.
People used to enjoy the game each and every bit, Story of the game, the music, the art, and the gameplay mechanism.
Gamer’s used to collect the rare items and show it to their friends, and thats our goal, doing something different.
What’s the addiction for Offline Gamers?
- Taking Highscore
- Completeing game 100 Percent
- Collecting the rare item
- Time challenge
There are lots and lots of things to do in offline game, that’s how games were buit.
They used to entertain us, even after the storymode is completed.
Whatever we do in an offline game, we do it for ourselves, cuz we love to play the game.
