Read what a Female gamer wrote About Her Experience


Growing up as the only girl in a family has its
own advantages; one of which is having interest
in video games. Playing video games is one of
the hobbies that is mostly male dominated.
Hence, seeing a female who is even interested in
playing is like seeing a dinosaur in this

generation. I started playing Video Games from
the time of the SEGA down to PlayStation(PS)
consoles. So, I would say I am very well
acquainted with the system.My favorite games
are FIFA. NBA and Mission Games.
Below I will list the lessons I have learnt playing
video games. They are actually Plenty but for
the sake of time, I would be listing about five
lessons.
1.Views/Results are different from every angle :
While I was playing FIFA this morning, I had a
difficult time trying to maneuver the defenders in
the opposing team in other to clear the path for
a goal. I repeated the same pattern of playing
the whole first half and was unable to score. I
decided to play another pattern in the next half
to see if there would be a change. Voila! I
started scoring. I ended up winning by 4 – Nil.
I have applied this same method in life so many
times and it has really helped. For example If I
did same category of investments and none
worked out. Rather than not investing again, I
change what I invest in and the pattern to use.
2.Do not Relent : I was playing NBA 2K16 with a

friend some months back. We were in the 4th
quarter of the game and I was winning by 92-
44 . I felt with the amount of time left, he
wouldn’t break even so I relaxed. I was mocking
him at same time while the dude was busy
planning his comeback. Before the 4th quarter
ended, my friend equalized and even won the
game. I felt like a pack of poo.
Even in your most comfortable position, do not
relax and loose all guard. It is never over until it
is over.
3.Management: I had played RPG games in the
past where I ran out of ammunition to complete
a stage. It continued this way until I learnt how
to manage the little ammunition I had. Life is not
an all-you-can-eat buffet and you can’t always
get what you want, so be smart with what you
have and focus on what’s most important.
4.Patience/Persistence : When I first started
playing FIFA games, It was boring to me because
I kept losing. At a point, I thought playing game
was not meant for me but on a second thought, I
decided to keep playing until I am perfect.
In whatever you are doing, If you are able to be
persistent, there are a lot you can accomplish.
5. Failure: An Avenue for Learning : When I kept
losing my FIFA matches, I had to go back and
learn properly how to do it. If I had not lost
consecutively, I wouldn’t see the need to learn
how to play well.
Repeated failure wakes up the zeal to learn in
most people.
