Comparison of Two Games
Not all games are the same. Some are computer games, video games, strategy games, card games, sport games, action games, puzzle games and educational games played for fun. People play games to spend time as a family as well. Others seem to be designed to inform people on things happening in other places.They are trying to get people of all ages to understand the intensity of what is happening and get them to help. While some are played simply for something to do when you are bored. Whatever game it is, the goals are always the same: to enjoy the game.I enjoy playing games because they are a good way to pass the time.When you have nothing else to do you can always play games and the time goes by quicker.
I spend a lot of time playing action, adventure and funny games: some of these games include Mario Kart, Escape games, and Achievement Unlocked. Anything and everything that makes you act on instinct and work with what you have is what I like about the games I play.I love to find hidden items that will help me in the game, to try and beat all the other drivers with special items,and when I win I feel happy that I was able to accomplish the task and I play again and again, I have fun searching for all the possibilities to succeed.I enjoy knowing that I'm one step closer to winning the race in Mario Kart or escaping the room in the various escape games,and to being a winner. If I happen to lose, I do what any other player would do. I tell myself that I will just have to try again and then maybe I would win next time. I come back and play again after I lose either because I enjoyed playing or because I am determined to win. Mario Kart is a social life because you have many different ways of playing with the courses and vehicles you choose.
Recently, I've been spending some time playing the game Ayiti: Cost of Life. This is a game in which you have to give a family a god life while they work, study, and get sick. The goal of the game is to make the family happy while they have an education and enough money to get along.This is a goal easier said than done. It is very easy for the family members to get sick which makes them unable to work and make money so that they can have a good life. By the end of the game, if you are lucky enough to make to the end of the game, you still may have not been able to give the family the life you hoped they would have, but you still got all of them or most or them through difficult times.
The first time I played the game, I thought it was really depressing and I was suprised about how bad life really was for these people. During the game a family member would be working too hard and then they would get sick.There may not have been enough money to help them so they would die.Also hurricanes could come at any time and you could be in debt.It really isn't until the third or fourth time when the game starts to get repetitive that you truly realize that to actually help these people you must think of the game as real life because it kind of is.You have to think about diseases and how hard they could work while avoiding getting sick.They needed to work pretty hard or else there wouldn't be any money coming in and nobody could get an education. You realize that if you want to make a good life for the family you have to make sacrifices, but in the end it will really help them. You begin to feel bad and think that they need money to go to school and go to the hospital when sick, all the things that will help them have a better life.
There are times when you are playing this game that you want to quit. You don't want to have to deal with the constant challenges like disease because it makes everything harder and more unpleasant.You have to overcome debt and hurricanes and sickness to do well in this game. But you keep going because you want to succeed and have these people have a good life because you see how terrible it truly is.So you keep playing, keep trying. Trying to get money and an education and an overall good life for people in need of help. You want to help people who have a constant fear of death because of disease and disasters that always end up on their doorstep.You do whatever you can to protect them which involves earning money to pay hospital bills and to board up the house in case a hurricane comes. Ayiti:The Cost of Life is a hurricane because it throws unexpected things at you and there is a chance that it might not end well.
