As lifestyles become more technology-based, everyone seems to have become busier. Emails, text messages and phone calls can now intrude into one’s life, sometimes even while one sleeps. There seems to be no escape from the demands from relationships, jobs, obligations and other responsibilities.
But there is one sure way to get away from it all and allow oneself to take a full, well-deserved break. Free MMORPG, or massive multiplayer online role-playing games offer the chance to recover from the daily stresses of life. At the same time, these online MMORPG games like World of Warcraft (WoW) are free and always available so there is no need for big preparations or even budgeting. Well, maybe prepare a tumbler of one’s favorite beverage and ready-made meals in the kitchen because once this online life begins, it’s a whole new world.
A free MMORPG lets one build a character that will pursue quests and generally perform as a hero – an opportunity that is probably lacking or difficult to come by in most regular real-life jobs. The game unfolds as fast or as slow as one desires depending on how one chooses to play it. There are endless options for customization that is a delight in itself considering the limited options faced in daily routines.
Playing free MMORPGs is a good break for the mind that has always worried and stressed on too many things at the same time. In an online game, the mind gets to relax more, focus on one quest at a time, and decide about simple things like what armor to use. There are no real deadlines, and there is always the option to restart all over again with a whole new character. One can even decide to change the whole scenery and world itself and pick another MMO game. There are many different kids like PvP MMORPGs, strategy games, simulation MMOGs, browser MMOs, kids’ games, etc. This simple relief and freedom can do wonders in refreshing one’s mind when it’s time to get back to the real world.
This alternative life experienced in a free MMOs can also help boost one’s strategic skills. Maybe there’s something in the office or at home that has been nagging to be solved but somehow the solution seems to be elusive, or the solutions that come are less than perfect. Because of the gaming break, and also because of the nature of the game, alternative ways of looking at the problem may present themselves. This is something similar to the saying “Sleep on it”, when solving a problem is aided by a good night’s sleeps to let the brain process things more fully. In this case, “Play on it” so that the brain can explore other possibilities of dealing with it.
Just as being away on a trip to a far-off island can refresh one’s perspective on daily life, one can achieve the same effect and benefits by immersing oneself in the fantastic worlds of free MMORPG. There are whole worlds to choose from and many stories to pursue, and certainly many characters to be. Let go of the mundane concerns of work routines and the adorable but sometimes exhausting demands of family and friends.
