(I put this in the general discussion area but I guess it would also fit in the Off Topic section as well ¯_(ツ)_/¯)
So… the day has finally happened. I have convinced my dad to play No Man’s Sky. Well, it hasn’t happened yet, but that’s exactly why I’m posting this.
You see, my parents are not video game people. My mom absolutely hates them and my dad says he finds them interesting but could never play them.
However, recently my dad has been reading a lot of science fiction, so his interest in all that is very high. On top of that, I’ve been talking a lot about the game with the whole ARG and updates going on (it’s usually a pretty one sided conversation unfortunately )
So we were in the car one day waiting for my mom to finish shopping for God knows what, when he randomly started asking about the No Man’s Sky. This took me by so much surprise as well. That was the first time he ever actually started a conversation about video games. He seemed really interested in the game and (get this) said he would even give the game a shot when the update dropped.
However, here’s the big thing: he’s not a video game fan because he says that “he’s old so his reaction time is bad” (those exact words too) . This has prevented him from playing any of the other games because he just refuses to try them. It’s really good that No Man’s Sky is really a chill game. I think it’s perfect because the only real “action” parts are the space battles and occasional Sentinel attack, without getting even a little bit boring.
Honestly I just hope I can finally have someone to talk to at home about video games without being ignored.
