21 Things Every Gamer Gets Excited About
Everyone has certain things they love that others just don’t get. Here are 21 things only gamers get excited about:
1) Filling up your inventory with cool things
No one else but a gamer would see the importance of seeds, charms, or mounts—you never know when you might need them in a battle!
2) Finding a new world to explore
Nothing beats discovering a new part of a game. There’s lots to see and do. You know where the next few days of your life will go.
3) Peeks at new content
Whether online or in a game shop, getting a sneak peak at an upcoming new quests, card decks, or even pets for your favorite game makes you feel like the happiest person on the planet.
4) Glitches getting fixed
When the game’s designers release a free patch to fix bugs, you’ll finally get to enjoy your game again without weird invisible barriers or tools working the wrong way.
5) Getting ungrounded and playing again
Nothing’s sweeter than breaking free from being grounded. It can feel exactly like Christmas morning when your mom or dad lets you play your game again after what feels like a lifetime.
6) Seasonal items and quests
Some people get excited about the weather turning cold or school finally being out for the summer. For you, a new season generally means a cool new seasonal quest that brings special rewards and tools.
7) Mini games
Winning a mini game can almost feel like winning the lottery. The mini games in Wizard101 allow you to recharge your energy and potentially earn more gold! Other fun side quests, like Grub Guardian or the fun trivia games at FreeKIGames.com, offer rewards you can’t get anywhere else.
8) Free Crowns
Some people would say getting real free money would be better than getting imaginary money or Crowns. But gamers know that sometimes, Crowns are real money!
9) When the Wi-Fi goes down and then comes back on
It’s like you’ve gone days without water! You need your game! Your brothers and sisters are annoyed they can’t use Facebook but you’re itching to battle. Coming back to your game after a while away means spending extra time building inventory, battling and collecting gold. What’s wrong with that?!
Like getting all A’s or winning a soccer game, there’s no greater feeling than getting past a certain point in the game. You’ve worked hard to get where you are, so be proud!
11) Leveling up
Leveling up can take days, weeks or even months. It’s a sign of hard work and dedication, and it doesn’t hurt that you sometimes get a pretty little reward for making it to the next level.
12) Getting game gift cards for your birthday
While the other kids in your class are eyeing the next iPhone or a puppy, you have a birthday list of zones and gear that you can’t wait to buy with prepaid game gift cards.
13) Fancy gear
It’s always exciting when you save up enough coins to get new outfits or weapons for your characters. Adding your own custom touch is one of the reasons you play in the first place!
14) New powers
Maybe you leveled up or got a new item. Suddenly you can fly, turn into an animal or shoot fire!
15) Finding a great walkthrough
A good guide to playing is like having a friend over your shoulder to help… but less annoying.
16) Finding a new monster
They might be cute or they might be scary, but it’s so fun to find and fall in love with new creatures in your game.
17) Starting a new character
You get to experience the game all over again. But this time, everything’s different! A new person to dress, a new way of fighting… The possibilities are endless!
18) Winning a boss fight
These can be nerve-wracking, but it’s great to finally beat that enemy! You’ve literally conquered a giant!
19) Getting to a save point
Not every game lets you save whenever you want. There’s no greater relief than finding a place where you can save!
20) Rare items
Every gamer knows how exciting it is to find super-rare drops. Will you keep them or sell them?
21) Getting your real-life friends to play
Maybe this is the most fun. Sharing your game with your friends, playing in PvP battles and going on quests together make playing your game even more fun than ever!
