Games with swords are not the preserve of fantasy for a new generation of consoles and PCs, either. In fact, sword fights are commonly the weakest link in modern digital combat games (DLC) with pre-recorded, almost cookie-cutter movements that hardly reflect the real player’s input. New developers looking to expand their current game experience are missing out on an opportunity to create truly engrossing narrative worlds that players will want to return to and spend time in again.
This is precisely what Battle Royale: Conquer the Kingdom is. It is an exciting first-person shooter (FPS) video game played in the same way you’d play first-person shooter video games. The primary difference between the two is the camera angle. In a first-person shooter, you are only able to see other characters through the view of your camera. In a FPS, you are also able to look around corners, through peripheral vision, and zoom in and out of the action.
Playing video games using only the camera creates the potential for a limited view of the world. It forces the player to become intimately familiar with the environment he or she is in and becomes attuned to the subtle changes in scenery and the reactions of other characters. Because of this, many video game players who experience these types of games often find themselves not wanting to leave their chairs. Playing first-person shooter video games is often very similar to sitting down and engaging in conversation with friends and family members; it is a common social activity.
Enter the world of adventure games, where controlling the environment and the characters can mean the difference between a normal day and an incredible experience. Adventure gaming provides players with the opportunity to explore a vast world filled with anything from dragons to talking bears, complete with detailed backgrounds and detailed dialogues. When you’re not actively playing the game, you can still use the camera to do a lot of things. By moving the cursor around and clicking on various objects, you can create a map of your surroundings and get a feel for how you are progressing through the game. Playing adventure games requires a great deal of skill and knowledge about how to control your character, because navigating the world requires knowing where every object is and how to reach it.
A new level of interactive reality has come into play when people are playing first-person shooters. With first-person shooters, the camera will usually be a second player in the game. By playing this type of game, you will need to rely on your own problem-solving skills to overcome enemies and puzzles. Unlike adventure games where your goal is just to beat the levels and move on, in first-person shooters you are the protagonist. You are the character you are playing, and must learn to cope with whatever situations you find yourself in.
The ability to develop new problem-solving skills while playing games is important. This is especially true if you are playing games with friends who share the same interests as you. Whether it’s first-person shooters or puzzle or adventure games that you enjoy most, always strive to work on improving your problem-solving skills. Your friends will appreciate your effort, and you’ll be having a lot more fun when playing games that you otherwise might not have been able to finish.
