Hi all! I wanted to explore maturity and video games. Keep in mind, these are just my thoughts and feelings on the matter. You are welcome to disagree! With that said get to reading!
So do we grow up with age or do we just get older? Its hard to imagine emotional maturity having anything to do with video games but it does. How you may ask? If one is not mature emotionally, it affects ones ability to play and their choices as it relates to choosing a particular video game. Immature gamers see through the lens of immaturity. For example, the comment is always being made that Nintendo is for kids when in actuality Nintendo has broaden their audience and has changed their message to appeal to the masses.
Do games grow up with us or do we grow up with games ? Timeless treasures such as Zelda and Mario have stood the test of time. But they have been accused of not growing up. Its the same formula iteration after iteration. But that’s what works. Zelda Breath of the Wild is one of the most beautiful satisfying games ever created. An immature mind would only see how kiddy Nintendo is.
How important is emotional maturity when it comes to gaming? Does it matter if one is immature? As always be sure to follow, like and comment.
