If you’re a gamer, you’re probably really excited about the latest developments in virtual reality gaming which promise to make the gaming experience more immersive and exciting than ever before, but if you ever feel like taking some time away from the screen, you simply cannot beat the following real life ‘gaming’ experiences which are even better than the admittedly high level of simulation tech can now offer…
If you love games like Dark Souls and Chivalry, you will have such a great time fighting in a Medieval Combat league such as the International Medieval Combat Federation. You’ll dress up in period costume and use period replica weapons to fight the enemy in a hugely realistic way. In some versions of the re-enactment, full contact is allowed, so you get to really feel what it would be like to be a medieval warrior, well without the actual blood, guts and death, anways. Phew!
If you’re more of a shoot ‘em up fan and you get your kick playing games like Call of Duty and ARMA, Airsoft is the real world gaming experience for you. Why? Because you get to play with Airsoft guns and weapons, which look pretty realistic and feel the same too. Luckily, unlike guns, they won’t do you any real harm as long as you’re wearing the right gear, but they will enable you to have lots of fun shooting plastic ammo at the enemy and trying to tactically avoid being shot yourself.
If you enjoy racing games like AiRace Speed and Wipeout, why not take your passion and skills into the real world by investing in a drone and joining the Drone Racing League? Although it’s a fairly new sport, it is rapidly gaining in popularity and it’s not surprising that is so because drone technology is getting better all the time and they enable you to perform amazing acrobatic feats in the air above your head in the real world instead of just on a screen.
Do games with tanks float your boat? Do you love Blaze of War and World of Tanks? You might not be able to take charge of a real tank unless you join the army, and even then it’s unlikely, but you sure as heck can take command of a paintball tank that’s even more fun because y’know no one dies!
Put the controller down and have some fun in the real world once in a while!
