An Introduction to Gaming

By Ring Sakura


I ask them to create a world

and enter with their best identities


Friendly and welcoming


I say drop your stress and fears

and watch as your strength grows


or walk in the precisely designed forest

And feel the nature just at home


I want them to appreciate the artwork and stories

behind all these complicated missions

knowing that this world is always a welcoming place


But all they wanted to do

is get to the highest level as soon as possible

is to waste all their real lives and money

is to get experience by repeating the boring yet rewarding quests


They begin to complain about the creators

They ask for less and less content yet more and more missions

“Frauds who take our money and do nothing” they call us

They want to quit the world
