  • I ran across a question regarding the importance of game storylines. Do games needs an actual story and plot? I have came across games where the story or plot is weak, but still it is a good gameplay. Sometimes, I don't think it matters. I must admit to not paying too much attention to the story anyway. I'm the one who skips over the cutscenes, skips the dialogue, but that's only for games I see doesn't have a well thought out story. That or I just want to play the game. I may not could tell you what the game is about or the names of the characters, but I do enjoy playing the game.

    Recently though, I have been seeking for games specifically with solid stories. Being interested in storytelling increased my interest in storylines. I think it's also due to my game projects. While playing or watching someone else play, I noticed recently I pay attention to the dialogue and story more. The start of game writing and creation I believe allows me to take more time during my own gameplay. Since realizing how much time is put into actually making a game, it can make you better appreciate them. It allows me to try to take more time with the story of the game. There have been games that's been worth the time I feel.

    As a creator of games, I learned the importance of having a great story. I do believe a good story enhances the gameplay and keeps the player engaged and interested. That's why I try to carefully develop the stories for my game projects. My favourite combinations in games are amazing colors, originality, adventure, thought provoking, great music and a story that could stay with me. There's not many of those, but there's a few games where the stories have been interesting. So interesting, I'm still thinking of them. I will share a list of the games I feel are worth playing for the story. I'm posting game reviews and will mention the games in those posts. This post here was to discuss game storylines.

  • It's time for another post for The Insecure Writer's Support Group. Please visit here to learn more.

    There's a lot that has happened here in Minnesota. I've stayed safe by staying out of the way and just observe from afar. All day and all night, I can hear chaos and mayhem. Writing can sort of help briefly forget about the world around you, but then it did help to listen out for any suspicious noises that came too close. It can be disturbing to hear people screaming, people overtaking houses and destruction. I see writing especially during these times therapeutic. It happens to be the only thing I find therapeutic in these stressful times.

    So I do think writing is just as stress relieving as reading can be. Although there may be troubles such as rioting, protests or other problems in your writing, I still find it a way to relieve stress, escape even if it's for a brief moment. No, I'm not saying run away from things that you don't like or escaping reality or being in a fantasy world since being into healthcare and they often misunderstand these concepts. This is merely relieving stress, nothing more than that. I am not saying run away from problems or neglecting anything. I feel as a writer, it will be my job to help people find different worlds even if it is for brief moments. I would like my work to relieve stress even though there are problems in the work, and this is why I am writing projects for when others don't feel like reading about problems that are too intense.

    Being in the healthcare field, I find it good to discover something that helps you deal with stress in healthy ways. Writing is not only healthy, (depending upon what you're writing), but it's also productive.
