Today, I’ve been playing the new Assassins Creed Valhalla on PC the whole day. I haven’t done this in a long time where like 60%-80% of my day is spent on video gaming.
I don’t feel bad about it all.
At the end of the day, I’m feeling very relaxed. Reasons are mainly cause it is a single-player video game. There isn’t much focus or thinking needed in a single-player game.
You do your own thing and that is whatever.
I realized when writing this, is that there are so many multiplayer games.
Due to the nature of multiplayer, you need to enjoy it with others.
Singleplayer video games have the advantage where it is just about you. You are not dependent on others and can enjoy it yourself.
In an age where everything is connected, single-player video games may be a great tool to disconnect and be by yourself.
Escapism should be embraced to relax by yourself.
