Well, after reading Bunny's comment about real life, I just had to do a gaming review on it. Real life (although it's better known as "Reality") is a game that every single person in this world has played, is playing, or has given up on. I'll be reviewing Reality based on my experiences so anyone and everyone who's reading this will undoubtedly have a totally different experience in gameplay.
- A place to return to at the end of your day
- A means of transporting yourself from point A to point B
- Making sure that you are, at least, alive (breathing)
- Private island with mansion
- Bentley, Rolls Royce, Ferrari, Lamborghini, or any similar brand name vehicle
- Butler or someone to make you exquisite meals
- A CEO position similar to Bill Gates or Steve Jobs
Ahhhhhh....Reality. A game every single living human being plays and yet not one has mastered. My character's level so far is level 26 (soon to be 27 in uhhhhh....11 days) and he's not enjoying the currently phase in Reality. Think of Reality as playing the Sims but 1,000,000x more complex. The gameplay is sooo confusing that there are times when I just want to walk up to a person and punch them in the face. The environment is extremely creepy and unforgiving (there were times when I've given the finger to others due to slowness, stupid decisions, etc.) The economic environment in Reality is really depressing and to gain income, one must make a decision out of uhhh...100 ideas (could be more...)
There are 2 common types of requirements for Reality. First, the minimum requirements aren't too hard to fulfill. A house to live in, some kind of cheap vehicle, enough food & water for nourishment, some type of job to earn the monetary income to keep your "character" alive. The maximum requirements are very rare to achieve and does require much more than what I posted. The reason being is because there's no end to the maximum requirements.
Story-wise, Reality has so many choices to make that each little choice alters the path your character is on on a grand scale. A simple "no" answer can have thousands of repercussions and no one is guaranteed a positive ending. Some people say that once your character is born, the path is already laid out and that choices don't matter. This factor really depends on what kind of belief you've chosen for your character.
Graphics: The graphics in Reality are next to nothing. Not even the most beautiful game can compare with Reality. Depending on where you live, the environment is truly bright or truly dark. Some parts will have very vibrant colors while others will experience a more melancholic environment. The people that you interact with are downright realistic and even have choices of their own. On a side note, my character has seen some downright gorgeous ASS around! Remember, everything will vary depending on where you are.
Sound: Hmmmm...it really depends on your preference. The music in Reality really does vary depending on what you've chosen. Background noises also vary and there are MANY different types of noises.
My conclusion: Reality can be a bitch most of the times but if you adjust yourself accordingly, then it tends to work out in your favor (sometimes.) Overall, I give Reality a 6.5/10
