Something to think about

Internet Friends

I don’t usually post articles which have only a little to do with gaming in some way, but my friend Ian sent me this piece and asked if he could post it on my blog. After reading through, I said absolutely, as I feel like this is great to show that internet friends are real friends and can be absolutely wonderful.

Is Battle Royale Game Genre Dead?

With the recent influx of upcoming AAA games adding battle royale modes, I wanted to sit down with a few of my gamer friends and discuss the past, present and future of this genre.

Before I start writing about the discussion we had, let’s look at some of the history of battle royale first.

Oh, yes, it’s that time again! Time to pick this debate back up and add my own 5 cents. I’m well aware this debate has been going around ever since people started collecting memorabilia. Besides the old question why do we collect memorabilia, there’s also the question of unboxing action figures and memorabilia. Some people are for it, some people strongly against and it has caused quite a few fights among the internet folks.

Why Do We Collect Video Game Memorabilia – An Insight Into One’s Mind

Firstly, let me warn you that this post is in no way a psychological research. I’m not a scientist and don’t claim to be one, so this post is only an insight into my (and others) mind. I bet if you searched around the web, you could find some articles and scientific reports on why we collect things done by proper scientists.

Secondly, I feel the real life experience described in this article could be applied for other memorabilia, not just video game ones. But since this is a video games related blog, I’ll stick with what I love. 🙂

That’s that for a disclaimer. Now for the real stuff.
