Life is Like an RPG

If not for the advent of the Internet, I would have had these exact same conversations with my own mother. Everyone has heard the term “starving artist.” Fortunately, that phrase doesn’t really apply to the IT industry. I always imagined that I would be animator first and foremost as a kid, but life has a way of working out differently than you anticipated and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

    Nah, see, if life were really like an RPG, we’d all be grinding out levels while we’re still in our teens and 20s so we can totally kick the butt of everything we come across for the entire rest of our life. Instead we sit around and grind out levels in video games. Which is kinda sad, actually…

    in games, an average person is competitive and unrestrained – the balanced is tuned for this. Real life does the opposite, and the capitalism of few keeps a ceiling on the many.

    In games, you’re guided towards decisions and options that move you forward. In real life, the universe doesn’t give a fuck.

    In games, you can hone skills as you go, for the most part you’re automatically equal to the challenges thrown at you. In real life, you spend YEARS trying to be a cut above the rest (because so is everyone else) and hopefully make par.
