ESH | Taking Games For Granted
Recently, my father-in-law was staying with me and my spouse leading up to the New Year. One evening, while my wife slept, I decided to show off Wolfenstein: The New Order to both entertain my guest and make some progress in the story. As I played, he enjoyed the alternate history aspects of it and we ended up playing for quite a while. So long, in fact, that I ended up completing the game. What I wasn’t expecting was his reaction when the credits began to roll. He was absolutely floored that I’d finished the game and was practically gushing at the ease of my victory. I was completely confused by his reaction until I discussed it with my spouse a bit later when she said that it was likely he was so impressed because he may have never actually beaten a game before.
