Co-Op = Life
Three hours, three lousy hours (if I am lucky). I have gone from living an almost Matrix like existence in the online space, to being a man who cooks, cleans, works and dreams – but I love it.
I don’t see my increasing responsibilities as a burden, but as a joy. No longer am I playing at co-op, but living it with friends, family and, of course, my wife. For every hour of co-op gaming that work, wife, house and kids take away from me, they add hours of co-op life. In fact, in many instances you can actually gain gaming time too:
- Work – lets you pay for the games you want. Getting the right work/life balance is key to a happy existence. Do you work to live, or live to work?
- Wife – a co-op partner in the house to play with you.
- House – a great place to invite friends around to, for some old school local co-op
- Kids – give them a few of years and break out the LEGO or Disney Infinity games, you will be playing more co-op than you know what to do with.
The important thing about co-operative gaming is not how many hours you get to play, but making sure you enjoy those hours when you get them.
