I Can’t Compete

 

 

Cordova, TN; January 21, in the year of our Lord 2019--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is returning to an interesting concept that few gaming media outlets will even acknowledge. I work a full time day job. I work Family Friendly Gaming as a second job that is part ministry, part hobby, and part influencer. The time I have to sit down and enjoy a game is limited. The time I have to devote to any one game is very limited. I am constantly video recording different games. I am constantly playing games for reviews. I check up on games that others have written reviews for to verify the accuracy of their reviews. I write columns, create pages in the magazine, and more. I spend time with my wife and kids doing a variety of chores and activities. I might have one to two hours per week to do something I want to do.

Why does any of this matter? What is the big deal about any of this? I realized something fascinating recently. I am way over matched in Fortnite. I can’t compete in Fortnite. Why not? There are people playing this game fifteen hours a day. They learn techniques and skills from gluttoning themselves on that game. I have to work a job to pay the bills (which I can barely cover with the two jobs). I do not have the time to waste on playing just one game that many hours a day. No wonder there are these players that are way better than me. They cheat by neglecting life to devote to one game. They cheat by neglecting family and friends to spend an unhealthy amount of time in one game. Is there some kind of device to even the odds? Is there some kind of a way Fortnite can make it fair? Do you know?

I have placed second in Fortnite a couple of times. I have gotten in the top ten half of the times I have played this game. How did I do it with such a skill and experience deficit? I used strategy. I understand there are really strong and talented predators in that game. How could I do so well against such strong opponents? How could I do so great when there is such an imbalance? I hid. Let that sink in for a moment. I avoided other players as much as possible. I found places to hide and ambush anyone that came through that door. I let the other players take one another out. No need getting in the way. I also observed what they did, and how they played to get some idea on how I could improve. I realized these players are way better than me because of the time they are spending in this one game. This is why I can’t compete. I have more important things to do.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.


God bless,
