Before entering into the world of experienced or inexperienced gamers, it’s safe to know a few rules of gaming. I mean, why would you want to get yourself exposed to the unsafe zones of the gaming world? Hence, it’s better to take notes of the do’s and don’ts before you start gaming.
In this article today, I’m going to highlight everything good and bad that you need to know about gaming so that you stay cautious on the way. Have a look:
Do Invest in a High-Quality Gaming PC
One of the biggest mistakes people make is not investing in the right gaming essentials. While it’s true that smartphones are pretty advanced these days, they’re not going to cut it if you want to play high-quality web games and that too, on a professional level.
Your smartphone is going to get stuck at one point or the other, which is eventually going to ruin your game. I love playing Call of Duty and guess what? I lost various times only because my smartphone used to get stuck. It was then I realized how important it is to have a personal computer as well as gaming keypads.
Do Play with the Known
Cybercrime and cyberbullying are quite common these days. You never know who’s disguising who behind the screen, so it’s better to be safe than sorry. Not to forget, playing with your friends is a lot more fun than gaming with a couple of unknown characters.
Moreover, looking at the positive side of the story is the key. You may find a great friend for life in the world of online gaming. Yes, that’s right, guys. If you come across someone who’s not an immature arse singing Madonna jams in the microphone, there’s no harm in adding him to your friend list.
Do Use a Wired Internet Connection
I remember hearing my fellow player screaming that ‘it’s the easiest opportunity to goal, here’s the ball’ while playing FIFA online, and boom! The WiFi crashed! It has happened several times to me and I hate it. Well, it ruins your entire mood as well as momentum.
It is precisely why I prefer to use a wired internet connection. Wired web connections are usually stable compared to WiFi. They hardly drop while a WiFi connection can drop any minute. Although it’s not problematic in daily life, it can be frustrating if it happens in the middle of a web game.
Do Get a Sound System
There’s nothing worse than being shot in the back in a web shooter game and not knowing what happened immediately only because you don’t have a sound system. Such embarrassing deaths can be avoided by getting a sound system for your gaming pc.
In case you’re on a budget and don’t want to invest in a sound system, you can simply purchase mini Bluetooth speakers. They provide decent sound quality at an inexpensive price rate. Attach the Bluetooth speaker to your gaming laptop and enjoy a remarkable session of a shooter game with your buddies. With all that sound notifying you of every step your rival takes, nobody will dare mess up with you.
Don’t Give Out Personal Information
As I mentioned earlier, cyber crimes are on the rise these days. Every other person falls victim to such ploys, even the gaming world is not as safe as it used to be. If you’re a regular web gamer, you’ll know. A lot of unknown players ask for your personal information online and then hack into your system using the provided information.
It has become a common scenario yet a large number of people fall prey to the trap every day. Hence, you must be mindful of who you talk to and never share your personal information with anyone. It doesn’t matter if you’re playing with them for the first time or the tenth, do not share your personal information at any cost.
Don’t Be Scared of the Online Comments
Many people upload their game videos on YouTube and earn a fortune with all these gaming vlogs. Well, I must say it’s a smart way to earn a great amount of money and that too, with minimal effort. You’re not going out, not making much effort, and still earning a decent amount of money. Isn’t it incredible?
The thing is when you upload a video on YouTube, several people are going to watch it and not everyone will like it. Some people may admire you but where there are admirers, there are also critics. Many people are going to say pretty harsh things in the comments, so you must remember that you’re not in Kansas anymore. Prepare yourself for all such negative things and don’t allow them to hit you emotionally.
Don’t Go Beyond Your Skill Level
Many people rush things by playing at an expert level in the beginning, just when they’ve started playing a certain game and don’t know enough about it. As a result, they lose again and again which shatters their self-confidence and ego. Do you want that for yourself?
If not, then you must stick to your skill level. Start with beginners level when playing a new game and gradually move towards the medium and pro levels of the game. It will help you learn a lot of new things about the particular game. It will also teach you about the environment of web gaming, which can be both pleasant and unpleasant at the same time.
How simple is that? Knowing all these do’s and don’ts will help you learn all the prerequisites of web gaming. Remember that prevention is better than cure, so you must be mindful of the points I’ve mentioned above before entering the gaming world. I wish you good luck, my friends!
