Not all video games don’t challenge us and encourage easy gameplay with little required thinking, and I got a few reasons why.
One reason is lots and lots of games like Legend of Zelda, the Metal gear franchise, and many more have difficult and mind challenging puzzles that require you to think. Like the guardians of the master sword Twilight Princess, Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire’s Brallie, or all the poetry in silent hill there are lots of challenging puzzles in games.
The other reason is some games like Metal Gear Solid (sorry I talk about it so much I just LOVE the franchise), counter strike, the civilization series, and a many other games require strategy, some require more military and stealth strategy like how should we capture this point surrounded by enemies, or how many people are in this base and how can we sneak pat them. Others require city/empire based strategy like should we go to war with random country, or I have barley any money but should I buy more land fills to get rid of the trash problem.
See now I hope you see games require some thought to play and you can’t run in guns blazing.
You getting tired of the typical Call of Duty, Battlefield, and other similar bland shooters. Well I have a game for you and it’s called Team Fortress 2 (or TF2), and here are some reasons Three reasons you should get it.
First of all it’s free to play, I mean you can put some money in to it to buy some hats, cosmetics, weapons, and other things. You do unlucky most the weapons, the Ghostly Gibus hat, and Pyro Vision Goggles without having to pay money, but sometimes you nee to wait a long time.
Continuing TF2 is a very well balanced shooter that took years to prefect. The classes are very well balanced such as the Scout a very quick class that can deal a lot of damage and capture and push bomb faster than other classes but has not a large amount of health. The Medic that keep the rest of the group alive by shooting them with his Medic Gun, but he can’t do much damage, but if he stays out of the battle for a bit his health can regenerate. The Engineer a class based on defending by putting up sentries he can upgrade and repair dispensers to provide Health and ammunition, and teleports for quick travel. The Heavy the tanks class that take damage and can deal damage. Demo man an all around amount of health damage dealing class. Pyro a fire based class. Sniper, I think you could figure that one out. Solider is like an all around class. And Lastly Spy a stealthy class that can cloak and disguise as the enemy team to get behind enemy lines.
Lastly TF2 isn’t super serious and it isn’t all sad and stuff, it’s very silly with a bunch of jokes, funny items, entertaining comics on there website, and many MANY more.
Those were the reasons TF2 is my favorite shooter and I think you should get it ,and tell me what you think in the comments,and if you want to play get a steam account here where you can get TF2 and many other games, also my username is superspino656 if you want to friend me.
