In this article I will attempt to explain strategies and action video games – The difference between the two. During this article I will focus on two certain games, SKIRIM The Elder Scrolls and Call of Duty. It is my goal to provide you with the nessecary information you will need when you are buying your next game so that the game fits you.
The basis of strategy games
The whole concept of a strategy game is simply to get you to think. Basically use your brain.
- Create your avatar
- Seek out missions
- Compleat missions
- Get rewarded
For strategies games – is there a right or a wrong?
In SKIRIM after creating your avatar, your first decision comes soon after. You have to make a choice whether to go with the guard or with the other prisoner. That first choice decides your first friend and who you can trust. It’s about making choices, just like in life.
Like in life, there are thousands of choices in Ski Rim and thousands of missions. Which ever way you chose to go in SKIRIM you always make it your own and if you start over it can always turn out different
SkiRim is a one player game so there is an up side to this and some down falls.
- You can play as long as your want
- Go where your want
- Do what your what
- Your alone
- You lose track of time
and if your not careful your can lose yourself ( REALLY) in the game
Remember this old saying as you play a strategy game. For everything you do has a consequence whether good or bad. For it is your decisions thet decide the missions and out come of the game .
Action games are fun
I admit that action games are fun such as Call of Duty, but when playing it alone it can be boring. Most action games are created for multi players. As fast pace, quick thinking fun. There is a way to have a group right at your side or you can be on line with friends up against another group.
Some people make gaming nights with there friends or even gaming weekends. My hat is off to you who do. But there is a downside to this. Yes you can play Call of Duty alone but if your are with your friends you only have a certain amount of time before you need to get back to the real world.
Taking a poll
I went around to people I know and people I met on the street and asked them two questions. Here are the questions and the results
Do you play, video games or games online.
57% answered Video games
31% answered Computer games
12% answered They don’t play games at all
Out of the 88% that played some type of game I asked then this question. Do your prefer strategy games or action games. I was shocked when I learned that out of the 88% they were equally divided at 50/50 on what they prefer
The Wrap Up
Strategy vs. action games are not as different as your might think overall for they both make you use your brain and devise a plan of action. The only difference I can find is action you can play with friends and is fast paced to where a game like SKIRIM you can’t.
Now I myself am a gamer however contrary to believe I am old school. I like the old games like Zelda, Spyro, and Final Fantisy Ten. Out of SKIRIM and Call of Duty, I am a SKIRIM fan, Which are your. Comment below. Thanks
