Winter: The Official Gaming Season
‘Tis the season for gift-giving, cold weather, days off from work or school, and… gaming. Because people tend to stay inside more at this time of year, winter gaming is a popular activity. Here are just four of the many reasons why winter is gaming season.
- When the weather outside is frightful, you can still play with your friends.
It can be frustrating when you want nothing more than to head over to a friend’s house and spend some quality time together, but the weather has other ideas. Even if you’re avoiding an impending storm, are already snowed in, or simply don’t want to leave your cozy house and venture out into the cold, you don’t have to give up on having fun! You aren’t doomed to a season of solitude after all, because if your friends are into winter video games like Wizard101, you can still hang out together in the Spiral. Running into each other by chance is easier said than done in a place as big as the Spiral, so if you’re 13 or older, be sure to connect with your real-life friends using True Friend codes.
- Winter gaming is a great antidote for cabin fever.
Once you’ve been stuck at home for a few days, the novelty quickly wears off. Cabin fever is common at this time of year, but winter gaming can provide the great escape you’re looking for. After you spend some time in Krokotopia, Zafaria, or Azteca, the snow outside your window will seem a million miles away. On the other hand, if you’re looking for someone to commiserate with about the frosty weather, the residents of Wintertusk and Polaris will definitely understand the struggle!
- Your loved ones may have a little more time for gaming.
If you enjoy playing video games with your loved ones, you’re probably all too familiar with their busy lives getting in the way of your precious game time. You know the drill—they want to play, but other stuff has to take priority. But there’s good news: Between scheduled holiday breaks and unscheduled snow days, people tend to be more available for winter gaming at this time of year.
- Winter video games go great with your favorite things about the season.
Roaring fires, cozy sweaters, and steaming hot chocolate are some of the best things about the season, and you can enjoy all these perks while taking part in winter gaming. Cuddle up on the couch with a warm blanket and your favorite mug, log into Wizard101, and make the most of gaming season sooner rather than later, because before you know it, the snow will be melting and spring will be here!
