ROLE-playing video games can be very appealing because, like novels and films, they engage the imagination of the gamer. From the time you insert that CD, press Start and give your character a name—perhaps yours—you’re hooked and willing to get through 24 hours or more of gaming fun to beat the RPG.
With these video games you step into a fantasy world, maybe of fairies and elves and a dark lord ruling over the land with tyranny, of badlands and desolate cities belonging to green-eyed humans that have apparently been exposed too much to nuclear chemicals, or of mechanical creatures with their own will ruled over by their creator who is as evil as he is highly intelligent. You meet all sorts of characters along the way, different though you are in skill and personality but of one mind and goal, which leads to all of you banding together to achieve that collective goal. Every part of the video game is enjoyable, from fighting monsters to increase your level thereby increasing your skill set and stats, to finishing off the final boss.
Probably most alluring about these role-playing video games, however, is that with them you can step into the shoes of a main character, the hero or heroine of the game, and fend off the enemy forces trying to take over the town of your birth, the kingdom you’re destined to rule one day, the door to the supernatural realm you’ve stumbled upon by mere accident. It’s not just the idea of being somewhere else but also being someone else. A sort of escapism. But that is not to say your life is as mundane and boring as it can be, but at least you get a feel of what it’s like to be someone who saves the day, even if it’s just in the life of your heroine or band of bandits or motley party of magicians and warriors. Now who wouldn’t want to play a game like that? And if you don’t, go find yourself a copy of used madden 2010.
