How do you de-stress or unwind? Many people have a variety of great ways to de-stress after a long day or week. In my house, it seems playing video games is the go to for releasing some anxiety, stress or maybe even anger. It's also a great way to have some fun and if you have family members who like to play, it also equates to family fun time. My oldest has played games for as long as I can remember and now my two younger ones have games they like to play too just as any kid does. My son-in-law loves the shooter type games and Far Cry 3 is right up his alley.
I do know that after a long week at work, he looks forward to the weekend and coordinates "play" time with his buddies. Although he has not played Far Cry 3, he's very excited about it and already has looked it up. Since Far Cry 3 is being developed by the same world-class designers that brought Assassin's Creed 2, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, he is even more interested in the game. What also appeals to him are:
- The cache of weapons and explosives that allows a choice to shoot up close or from a distance via sniping.
- I'm not sure if he's big into the environment but I do know many, many gamers take in the beauty of these virtual worlds. Far Cry 3 claims to have an "island playground as stunningly beautiful as it is diverse from mountain ranges to swampy grasslands and white sandy beaches." You also have the choice to fight through the towns too.
- Far Cry 3 also has a story line to fight through and a choice of a variety cast of characters.
- The ability to play in multiplayer modes for individual and team play. Not to mention that after the match, you get to punish your opponent.
Playing games is an easy way to release stress and it's cheaper than going out. If you are not a gamer, you would be surprised at how much fun playing games are especially with others. It's a great way to get together with friends and family. Shoot 'em up games also provide a challenge to learn the skillset to beat the game or at least your friends. How do you de-stress?
