10 Features From Gaming We Want In Real Life
Posted July 4, 2010 by (472)
10. Switch from 1st person to third person
Starting our list at number ten is this neat feature found in games like Fallout and Oblivion. Haven’t you ever wanted to see your life in another perspective? Even perhaps see things close to behind you? While we can’t see it being that handy, it would certainly be a pretty cool thing to see yourself play sports, play videogames or even just sleep.
At least now you know nobody’s in the bathroom.
9. Life statistics
Most games do support this feature where they show you how many times you’ve been shot, how many times you jumped, etc. Again, it’s not a particularly handy feature, but we at Meodia are just so curious about our daily lives that we would love to see how many times we’ve pressed "F" on the keyboard or something more important like how many glasses of water we drank that day.
Expanding on the life statistics, but in your eyes. Being able to see health/stamina/ammo count (hopefully if you do need this, you’re aware of the ammo content already) would be amazing! Imagine drinking a glass of wine that your friend provided to you but then seeing your health start to drain. You can stop and quickly get some medical attention, not before eliminating that son of a b*tch.
Think this is cool? This is only the GPS function.
7. Difficulty Selection
Having trouble getting a girl? Why not just go into the options and select an easier difficulty to have her fall in your arms? Can’t get a job? Do the same thing! The possibilities with this feature are almost endless and it can always come in handy. After leaving the difficulty on "very easy", we don’t see why anyone would want to switch it back.
Best we could come up with for this feature.
We picked this feature knowing that quests do exist in real life to an extent but not the "knowing your outcome" aspect of it. Wouldn’t it be fantastic knowing the consequences of your actions? You would have time to evaluate and see which decision is better for you in life. A really handy feature, I’m sure most of us would give almost anything to have this in reality.
Damn, to bring 4 things to a person and become instanely rich? Hell yes!
