Let us talk about realism games today. Realism in games plays an important role in any game. Games need some amount of realism to maintain disbelief illusion and also to help players to keep their enthusiasm in the game. Illusion and immersion of disbelief either makes or breaks such games.
The series of elder scrolls was created on immersion. Each and everything in this game is neatly put out. An entire team built a ruin and the book seen on the table can be actually read and it is a story. A short story it is. Everything in such games is old and also has a history behind it. This game has an entire whole world. For example Skyrim, every city has its own small world with all the NPCs acting out their day to day lives and we can take part in them while observing them at the same time.
This is very helpful when you do a quest where you need to protect another character in the world. You care by default already as protecting them is needed to finish the whole mission but that is so cold. A more fleshed out actual world will help you to get closer to the character and establish a relationship with them. Thus when you are protecting them is like that much more to you as it is like your own pal in some trouble. This especially can be nerve-wracking on your initial play. In games such as Skyrim main characters cannot diet, but if you are a first-time player then you will not know it. The life of the character can be very important to you.
On the contrary, games like Fable where everything in the whole world is served by your character. Your character matters the most here. There are many characters in the game. Towns have huge populations but they don’t matter that much. They all have interests and names but they are not more valuable than the numbers. You can get easily get attached to any character as they are all the same. They definitely talk back to you but you hear the same phrase from all of them. You can actually marry them but there is no point in doing so.
Realism is not only about the characters. It is also about the way the game world works. In almost all sandbox games there are different glitches. When Skyrim has released many people spent much time in talking about horse could climb up the mountains. The game is filled with many mountains so the horses should be able to walk the mountains, but still many people were not satisfied with it. Many people like games that have unrealistic aspects. If the game is fantasy game especially as some people play the games and just have a good time for a while. The complete realistic game would feel weird to such people.
The simulation games world is just unbelievable with Gmod now. They open up a world of possibilities in real which can be enjoyed and explored. Online simulation games have transformed tremendously over the years from fantasy to the ones with specific trade skill. They simulate the actual world more or less and thus give us an opportunity to keep themselves in shoes of other characters.
The development and introduction of MMORPG games have made online games much more like training than a mere hobby. The most popular and common type of simulation games is those which come under business category. Virtual families are another major favorite games, especially with girls.
