What Wizard101 Truly Means to Me and My Family

During the holidays, we’re running a contest through our “12 Days of the Spiral“.  The question is – what has Wizard101 or Pirate101 meant to you and/or your family in the past year?  Here is our ninth winner!  Read how Wizard101 helped instill some good qualities and life skills into this young person’s life.

Honestly, Wizard101 has changed my life. I first started to play in 2009. One day, my cousin who is basically my other twin, randomly introduced it to me, and so I thought I would give it a try. I generally was a “gamer” type of person, but that day I realized my true talent. Wizard101 has greatly impacted me in terms of skills, my studies, and me generally.

My cousin used to live far away from me and I would rarely see him. However, Wizard101 allowed us to contact each other through the game. We would develop different skills and strategies that we would both need in order to complete a quest. It taught me to co-operate with him and others as I was not the best person to co-ordinate with. It greatly impacted my ability to recognize what is most important and what is least in terms of doing quests, gathering health, and choosing specific attire that would help in terms of resist, damage, critical rating, and block.

Furthermore, it taught me to organize my time. I would keep a specific schedule in order to balance my time with my family, on my game and my studies. As I got older, I started to help my mother with chores, and started to work. The money I earned, I would partly use it for my membership and other things. Wizard101 greatly taught me how to be responsible and manage my money and time wisely, and such a skill greatly helps me now. Also, I was a pretty slow communicator through technology, and this game helped me increase my ability to type faster, which is a funny thing, but honestly it greatly helped.

I have been gaming for approximately four years. Wizard101 has taught me skills which greatly impacted my overall life, such as responsibility, time management, organization, and coordination. I am significantly thankful to KingsIsle as it has allowed me the ability to connect with my only cousin through Wizard101, and together we both learned various different techniques and strategies for quests. It helped open my mind to newer techniques and improved my ability to be a critical and creative thinker. It has honestly helped me to become a different and better person. As of now, I believe that I am going to stay as a loyal member to Wizard101 until the end. Thank you to KingsIsle for creating such an amazing and friendly game.

    I truly enjoyed hearing how your in-game skills carried over to real world activities, and I liked hearing about the goals you set for yourself. Keep up the good work!

    Wizard 101 changed my life it gave me a sense of freedom and fun. for my family it meant they could have another enjoyable game to play. The game, I’d say was the best thing that ever happened since I was allowed on the computer.
