I think everyone plays computer games to have fun. That is the basis of any game. With that said I think there are often more underlying factors. Indentifying them and approaching them with the correct mindset can help you enjoy the game more.

I guess so, but I'm not competetive by nature so I loathe the idea of playing to improve, it seems like a chore to me instead of just having a blast for the moment.

RE: League Of Legends Killing Urges.

Of course the priority should be to play for fun, but when you improve, wouldn't it be more fun? Like learning Riven ability combos or how you can use a ward to bypass a player or wall as Lee Sin. It's always good to try to push yourself. Making crazy plays is half the fun. I once Lee ulted someone back into their spawn in Twisted Treeline while we were at their nexus and he was forced to flash out to save time. That gave me quite a giggle.

Of course but for me the fun is pretty much everything, doesn't really matter if I suck or not. I guess I'm blessed like that.

RE: League Of Legends Killing Urges.

Whenever I play LoL I don't get any of the equipment because I have no idea and just run away when a champion shows up.

I don't competitive.

Theorycrafting and imagining scenarios while not 'in-game' can be more fun than actually playing the game for me. I really enjoy using my imagination..

Other than that I know what you mean. I do enjoy relaxing and just playing a game casually, but at those times I tend to play games which isn't competetive by nature - for example starbound to name a recent one. One does not exclude the other! :]

RE: League Of Legends Killing Urges.

Kind of like me playing PAYDAY 2 all the time that actually makes me want to rob a jewelry store and destroying that camera in real life.

RE: League Of Legends Killing Urges.

I usually play games to get away from people, so I've never been big on games like that. But, after seeing some similar problems with people I know that are into those, sometimes it's best to take a step back and come back fresh after awhile.

RE: League Of Legends Killing Urges.

Oh, I play League Of Legends too and I just don't give many fu**s about flamers. Mute=Fun & play

They are people who just can't accept some things. Just keep playing and doing your best, that's all.
