Convince A Friend Why Your Favorite Genre Is Worth Trying
You've got this friend who just can't understand why you love your favorite genre of video games.
Well, now's your chance to write it out: Convince him to try it!
Perhaps it's not even a friend; perhaps you've come across many people who just don't understand your gaming preferences. You've wanted to explain in great detail why you feel the way you do, but there was never enough time. It's also difficult - and a little awkward - to try and provide this explanation while at a cocktail party. It's a very personal thing, after all, and you want to say exactly what you mean to say. What is it about your favorite genre that you can't get anywhere else?
The flip side to this coin should be obvious. Did you ever know someone who convinced you to try a game genre you'd always ignored? And if so, what was the result? Did you at least understand your friend's fascination with it, even if you weren't enamored? Or, did you totally come around? As time goes on, there are more and more video game genres from which to choose, and we all have our opinions and styles. It can be frustrating to come across other gamers who dismiss your preferred genre, just 'cuz they've never tried it...
