In a cage but eyes on the sky

I may always be in my room, always stuck there and i don’t desire leaving it (unless i need to go to the bathroom). I prefer to stay here because I’m comfortable in here. I don’t feel any pressure or threatening judgement from the outsiders. I know, not all pressures or judgement is bad at all, some are there to keep you walking in a straight line and there are some to cheer or motivate you in reaching those desires that you have always wanted. But in these modern era i see from a birds eye view and i know what you think, some articles in the internet may not be true but they are entertaining. Staying indoors and enjoying the internet makes me so fat, yeah. 

People, most of us, today prefers to stay indoors rather than to go outside see, enjoy and experience it. There is nothing bad staying indoors, unless you were never tasted what is there outside of our small world. I was born in the 90’s, there was no internet by that time and my entertainment is either i play outside with some neighbors and cousins or i draw and let my imagination go wild. In those days you don’t need any gaming console or computers to have fun, all i need is a good piece of idea and to close my eyes to enter and build that idea. 

Nowadays children were born in a household where a computer or a gaming console is available, although some still prefer to go outside and enjoy their time. But some prefers to stay indoors, go to their computer or gaming consoles, open it up and play. I don’t consider having computers and gaming consoles as entirely bad, because with a computer and internet you could do work, learn things from the internet, download ebooks or look into other references for information without burning your wallets to ashes. Hey! It’s not the peoples fault to download illegal ebooks or look into the internet to look for information because our books today costs us a lot of money. I know, the life of our forest is being used to create such books and it should be repaid with replanting some saplings so we’ll not lose our forests but such books puts us in a position that we need to go to certain websites to download ebooks illegally. I know, even some ebooks costs a lot and sometimes it’s just irritating and some of those books are just revision of the previous authors and they are twice or sometimes thrice the price of the original. We are sharing the knowledge so that our friends, family and those who want to learn will not be excluded. We want them to learn, understand and experience those things and moments from reading our books. Then money strikes, someone needs to pay the bills, they have needs as well but it just looks and feels unfair because there are some books that just has the same content as the other book with the same topic that you will pick.

Let’s then tackle the gaming consoles or just discuss about gaming and its benefits, I got pulled by the computer too much. In the past games are just games to entertain us but In the present, they try to add some education in it. Don’t get me wrong, there are educational video games in the past, I’m talking about you sesame street games. I always read in some assassin’s creed post that AC help them with their american history class, I don’t really know if such comments can be trusted but if they are true then It’s good for them and for the developers. We need to impress; First, the consumers, some kids gives a lot of time playing video games so we need to inject some trivias or any educational stuff in the games and Second, the parents, mostly they are the ones paying for their child’s games so they needed to be impressed too, so yeah lets educate our children using the games that they so love. With our evolving technology our gaming experience change as well. In the past there are certain games that can help you not to be fat but in the present we have gaming consoles that will make you wear your body out. Some games for the Wii uses bodily movements to play like sports and other action games. Now developers gave us the occulus rift, there are not many games with stunning graphics that uses this device yet but all it does is take you closer to the game and see from your characters point of view. There are still other gaming gadgets that will make you move while playing. Maybe in the future we will have better video games that educates, keeps us physically fit and of course, that we will love and enjoy till we finish it.
