Due to the novel Coronavirus, many people have turned to video games – it helps them maintain their sanity in a lonely world that awaits them.
Some people are extremely vigilant and follow the instructions given before the video game begins. However, there are still a couple of gamers who simply dive in without taking any instructions as they believe that it’s a waste of time. This is also because they are too eager and excited to play that pausing to read the instructions just ticks them off.
One of the many games that gamers turned to during quarantine is the Breath of the Wild. They spend hours exploring only to attack the Hyrule Castle in the end. But many people are doing things differently while maintaining social distance.
For example, when Link emerges from the Shrine of Resurrection and looks for the vista of the Great Plateau, they run down the hill without pausing to talk to the Mysterious Old Man and anyone who has played this game would know how important his “talk” really is. Anyway, a lot of gamers are now spending nights picking apples, they’re even swimming in the lakes and throwing stuff at Moblins because why not?
In fact, another fun trick to pull off not opening the Shrine until the next day because then obviously you’d have to sit down to talk to that old dude. This social distancing, the important things can wait.
You know what is even funnier? Ignoring the imperative to rescue Princess Zelda! Come on, it’s 2020, these princesses can save themselves. It’s time to adopt Link’s attitude and pretend that nothing the other person says is of any value to you.
This state of uselessness is actually helping people be productive. Instead of spending hours watching the numbers on screen increase, you can simply put no effort into doing anything. Just lie around, talk with friends on Zoom or extend a helping hand to neighbors.
There’s no pressure to do anything at all and this game simply brings calmness to your being.
