Choosing the right game to start of with may be difficult, but it doesn't need to be
How do you choose what games you want to play and continue playing? Video games can be so overwhelming especially when colors and lights becoming more of the focus than the actual game play. Sometimes a game can be very simple and just keeps you occupied; or a game can be so challenging that you don't want to put it down because you want show that game "who's boss." Choosing the right game to try and keep playing depends on 1 simple factor, in my opinion; you, the player. As the player, you decide what game can and will keep you engaged. If you like puzzles, a puzzle game is for you; if you like puzzle trivia, hit that buzzer!
Choosing a game whether it's on a console, PC, smartphone, or tablet is entirely up to you. Of course, other players playing a particular game will be a factor, but overall you as the individual is the main voice of how you want to game. For me, I like single-player action genre video games with a great story. The #AssassinsCreed series is on high replay for me depending on what I feel like I want to do. If I want to raid ships, #BlackFlag it is. Do I want enjoy London during the #IndustrialRevolution, #Syndicate today. Recently, #Lego games like #HarryPotter and #Batman have high replay value for me. The main reason is that they are just fun to play.
Choosing your game is entirely up to you; even if you want to join the rest of the world in #Overwatch or #Fortnite. Therefore, ask yourself what do you want to spend your downtime doing; saving the world or building it. Gaming is all up to you, the player.
