There are always reasons when it comes to playing games; fun, stress relief, or perhaps you’re in the mood for some intense Mario action. Whatever your reason is, it always boils down to the same generic endgame. So here are a few other uses for videogames that will both entertain and satisfy.
Distract your ‘Friends’
Ever have a friend that you don’t really like, but refuses to leave your side? Well there is one easy answer, videogames. Just slide in some Gears of War and the next six hours are completely your’s. For maximum results though, let them borrow it! You may be deprived of your favorite shooter, but if the following weeks have anything to say for it, it’s undeniably worth it.
End a Relationship
First-rate girlfriends are always hard to find, but telling the awful ones you just can’t stand them often ends in what was recently their drink now soaking your face. So instead of you breaking up with them, let them break it up with you. Of course the option of acting just plain repulsive is always open, playing games non-stop is the choice way to go! Not only does it do the job swiftly, but it’s certainly healthier than eating food off the floor with your bare hands.
Build a Fort
Ever wanted a place to stay alone with your thoughts? Ever have plenty of empty game boxes and oodles of duct tape? Well then, put those materials to good use; build yourself your very own fort. You won’t just have a dark hole to hide in either; you’ll also have all your favorite videogames surrounding you! If that doesn’t assimilate you, then build a mailbox to go with it!
Pretend you’re a Ninja
It’s inevitable that we’re going to play some dreadful games in our life, and while it may seem those particular games are completely worthless, there are a few things you can do, pretend you’re a ninja for instance. Due to the fact that game discs can so easily be compared shurikans, you can actually put these games to good use. Now, where did I put Lair, I feel like scaring my sister!
Act like a Rock star
Ever since you were a kid, you’ve aspired to be a rock star; don’t deny it, we all did. And with all the great rhythm games today such as Rock Band, Guitar Hero, and Singstar, that out of reach goal has never been easier to accomplish. As long as you don’t mind your friends laughing at you in the process, this is one use for video games that we recommend taking advantage of.
Don’t think for a second that videogames have but one purpose, because with a bit of creativity, you can find a way to do just about anything with the help of videogames. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go read a magazine in my new fort.
