A look back at 2021 and the potential for change in the gaming industry

For much of this past year, gaming was stuck in a lull. With so many games postponed or cancelled because of work disruptions from massive pandemic around the world.

Gamers had little to play on their favorite platforms such as Sony Playstation 4s or Microsoft Xbox One Plus With no major events happening outside virtual reality realms like E3 2019, Gamescom 2020, etc… that were attended solely by AI-controlled characters without humans present during gameplay footage shown live-streamed throughout all over social media networks.

What does 2022 have in store for the gamers?

The year 2022 will have significant changes for gamers worldwide. For one, the pandemic is not as widespread or lethal as they were during that time period. Gaming companies have returned back to pre-pandemic levels of output with big first-party titles expected from Microsoft. Sony, and Nintendo.

The survival games that have the most fan following are

The ones that use more than just brute strength to win. Some of the most popular lean towards technique and strategy over physical strength, these types are known as the mind games. strategy can also change depending on what weapons you have at your disposal.

 The best example of this is when you are using guns, accuracy over brute strength kicks in. Basically if you miss your target, chances are that they are going to kill you before you get close enough to land a hit.

Some survival games like this include most of the call of duty games, where it’s simply a blood bath until there is only one person standing. This includes most modern warfare and black ops. Another great example of this is counter strike source, where you don’t just run in with an ak-47 blazing and expect to kill everyone. it takes timing and accuracy, not just running in like a mad man.

The best example of the mind games are the ones that take place on an island with no weapons, where it is just you against nature itself. This is one of the most popular types of gameplay. Some examples include day z, rust and ark:survival evolved, which all have extremely dedicated fan bases. The best example of this is day z, where it is an open world and you can do whatever you want. Full loot and zombie invasions make for an interesting combination.

A lot of people like these types because it takes more than just strength to win. no matter how big someone is, if they can’t aim, they aren’t going to do much. It takes a lot of patience and skill to become the best, and not just run around like a headless chicken with an automatic weapon hoping you kill everyone before they kill you.

To conclude,

The game creators have always depended on the open world and survival strategies to build a successful game, and this is the main reason why these types of games are very popular. People like to take their time and work towards something rather than simply running in with only one goal: kill or be killed. To be the best, it takes skill and patience. The survival games that have the most fan following are the ones that use more than just brute strength to win. Some of the most popular lean towards technique and strategy over physical strength, these types are known as mind games.
