13 Small Tips To Make You A BETTER Gamer!

So you want to be a better gamer? This video is for you! Some of us consider ourselves good gamers, but in reality, there is always room for improvement and sometimes we may not be as good as we might think.

So today you’re watching gamerbrain and we have 13 smalls tips to make you a better gamer! #13.) Start at the lowest difficulty Starting at the lowest difficulty within a game can be the difference between a successful play through or an early rage quit. Start off by playing on the lowest difficulty level possible and slowly work your way up once you’ve mastered things like the controls within the game, the level layout, boss patterns and much more.

Starting off easy when playing a video game is definitely one of the most useful strategies to implement when playing, Trust me it works and you’ll thank me later. #12.) Have No interruptions: Now we’ve all been in a very important match of cod, Halo or FIFA and our little brother, sister, mom or dad or whoever the hell else is around us has come into our room telling us to take the trash out, or go to the store and this is pretty frustrating considering you’re in the middle of an online game and probably can’t pause.

But let’s be honest, whoever interrupted you probably doesn’t understand this, so this tip is to make sure you have done anything you need for your family before sitting down for a gaming session to avoid those annoying interuptions. #11.) Ensure you’re using a wired internet connection this one is probably the most obvious tips on this list but for gamers, and that is to have a wired internet connection when gaming online, not only will you have better download and upload speeds, you’ll lower your ping and you’ll also have less chance of getting disconnected during a play session. This is really important for people playing fps games like COD, Destiny basically any game where timing is key.

Wire up that connection and you won’t regret it. #10.) Have lots of Energy: Playing first person shooters, or puzzle games can actually use up a lot of energy in your brain due to your reaction time or puzzle solving skills, so if you don’t have a lot of energy in your body you’re gonna be tired, grumpy and not gonna perform very well while playing a video game. While personally I do not advise energy drinks I advise waiting until you’ve had breakfast and definitely a good night’s rest before playing competitive or against a friend. #9.)

Knowledge: Knowledge, knowing a lot about a particular class or weapon within a game or just knowing a lot about the game you’re playing is a sure-fire way to beat anyone who doesn’t know about the gun or class or the game you’re playing. this tip applies to a wide variety games such as Halo, COD, CSGO, TF2, Pokémon and many many more. Remember, knowledge is power kids, and knowing is half the battle! #8.) Watch youtube videos or follow walkthroughs Youtube game walkthroughs and written walkthroughs can truly be your best friend if you’re a gamer.

Since the early days of video games walkthroughs have been an essential part of the gaming process, sure you may like to figure things out on your own, but if you are really really stuck on a certain level within a game then consulting a walkthrough seems like a godsend. Definetly search up some walkthroughs and you might just find an easteregg you didn’t know about or get through that level that got the best of you. #7.) Know your controls: This one is pretty obvious, but oh so important! Everyone plays video games differently, if you play on console you can choose between a bunch of different controller layouts, or if you’re on PC you can customise every key right down to your mouse buttons to whatever you desire, wanna jump with right click because you play better with it? Go for it!

The way you play can ultimately decide the fate of you, or your foe. #6.) Always play the campaign or tutorial: Playing the campaign or tutorial before jumping online or doing a speed run of the campaign OR a legendary playthrough can ALWAYS help, given you time to learn the basics, the little tricks, weapons, counters, good defence, good attacks and the way around maps (if it’s a game that uses single player maps on multiplayer) #5.) Practice makes almost perfect: Practice in games can go a long way, especially in online, as tuning your mind and senses to the way the game plays can be very advantages. A lot of good players normally have hundreds of hours put into a game. You’ll notice the difference immediately between someone with hundreds of hours and someone who only has dozens of hours.

#4.) Preparation: Stocking up on potions, perks, weapons and armour that will do good against the enemy you’re going to be fighting is key. For example, fighting against Adloin in Skyrim is a VERY difficult thing to do without potions or good armour, or fighting the elite four in any Pokémon game, you’re Pokémon may be strong, but you never know if a move will kill your pokemon and screw up you’re plans. That’s why a potion is always necessary, or even revives preparation is key folks.

#3.) Patience: You won’t get very far without patience. Re-doing the same level over and over again is sure to get on anyone’s nerves but you must remember that in order to succeed you must fail, over and over and over again before you can get it right. That might mean replaying parts of a level you couldn’t beat or just planning moves carefully but This also applies to real life in ways too but this is a countdown about gaming so onto the next, #2.) Variety: Don’t just play one game all the time like FIFA, A good gamer plays all sorts of games, not just one, for instance, someone who only plays Halo all the time is not a good gamer, they are a good halo player, same goes for FIFA and COD or Sims. However, someone who plays a wide variety of games and is good at them IS a gamer as they do not confine themselves to one genre.

#1.) Always save: This tip is most important as nearly everything on this list can be obtained by doing this, it also goes hand in hand with patience. Boss battle? Fighting Karstaag? About to battle a gym trainer or capture a pokemon?

Save your game beforehand. I can’t stress this enough because Then if you fail, you can reload, and do it again and again and again and again. This can help you learn from previous mistakes and help build your patience.

Saving is key guys because depending on the game you’re playing it pretty much allows you to have infinite continues, and really that’s not a bad thing.

Top 10 Video Games That Will Get You In The Halloween Spirit

Hello Internet – and welcome back to Top 10 Gaming – you might notice something’s a little bit different, and yes – I’m unfortunately not Kelly, but considering the title of this particular video – the powers that be thought they’d get someone a little scarier involved. What’s going on guys – my name’s Jack Finch – and today I’ll be your host as we compile the greatest video game titles out there that will get your skin scrawling in a seasonal fashion – in the Top 10 Video Games That Will Get You In The Halloween Spirit. Roll the clip. Fear not guys – I’m only passing through – this isn’t a permanent thing – but before we begin this video, I’m sure you all know the drill by now – if you’re a fan of Horror Video Games or just Top 10 Gaming in general, then be a champ and hit that thumbs up button – and make sure to ding that subscribe bell so you can stay up to date with our latest and greatest gaming content. So, in no particular order – flying in at our Number 10 Spot – online blackjack nz.

And what a classic to kick us off at – yeah, we’ll probably skim over the ending because a DLC conclusion absolutely sucks – but we can’t forget that 2010’s Alan Wake from Remedy Entertainment was a pretty ballsy game on release. The plot plays out like a Stephen King novel – as we take up the mantle of best-selling thriller novelist Alan Wake – who retreats to the small Washington town of Bright Falls to cure his writers block and get over the fact of his wife’s strange disappearance. As we slowly pull back the layer of this strange, sleepy town – the events from his latest novel – which Alan can’t remember writing – start to come to life. Yeah – it’s kind of 2spooky – but this psychological thriller actually stands up to its promise of being a considerably dark gaming experience. For one, the soundtrack of this game is absolutely stunning – and the small, atmospheric nuances really add to that strange, otherworldly – almost Lovecraftian vibe. If you enjoyed the Max Payne series, then Alan Wake is a horror step in the right direction.

Climbing through our window at Number 9 – Five Nights At Freddy’s Goddamn this game and my fear of lifelike inanimate objects. If you’ve ever been to a Chuck E. Cheese or something similar – and stared into the cold, dead, lifeless eyes of the animatronic entertainment – I say that lightly – and wondered why the hell anyone would ever think that this was a good idea to entertain small children – then you’ll be pretty safe and sound with the Five Nights at Freddy’s Franchise. I say franchise, because – they’re all equally worth a playthrough. In the majority of the series, you take up the mantle of a security guard at ShowBiz Pizza Place – a strange, terrifying pastiche to Chuck E. Cheese – and guess what, you’re locked inside with a bunch of homicidal mechanical maniacs with essentially only a flashlight and a series of security cameras to defend yourself with. Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie the Bunny, Chica the Chicken – Foxy the Pirate Fox – yeah, it only gets worse from then on. Scary shit.

Coming in at Number 8 – What Remains of Edith Finch This perhaps may be a much needed departure from the nature of our other games, but What Remains of Edith Finch makes this list purely for its capability to deliver genuinely creepy moments – with very little technical output. Also, it’s a video game that features my last name – so you know, family ties and that. It plays like a classic horror tale – almost fairytale in its execution – and it does a lot with very little. Admittedly, this game isn’t for everybody – as I appreciate that magical-realism can put a lot of people off – but atmospherically speaking, this game does a lot to unsettle the player – particularly the story of Barbara. You take up the role of Edith Finch – dubbed America’s most unfortunate family – at her American family home in Washington state, as you peel back the layers of death and bad luck that has befuddled your family. Yeah, it’s a walking sim, yeah it’s a simple plot – but its atmospherically gorgeous, and it delivers a great twist.

Next up at Number 7 – MediEvil. Not gonna lie – I absolutely love this game, mainly for nostalgia’s sake – but there’s no better way than to get into the Halloween spirit that to watch a gangly skeleton skip around a graveyard with an arsenal of medieval weaponry. Yeah, this game is pretty camp and outdated – and probably falls short as a bit of a mindless hack-and-slash extravaganza – but it ticks all the box for me when I think of Halloween – so that’s why it’s making the list.

You play as Sir Daniel Fortesque – an unfortunate, unwitting hero who lived his life as a lie, before being reanimated as the only skeletal hero who can save the kingdom of Gallowmere. It takes a huge amount of artistic influence from Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas – and manages to squirm out a soundtrack reminiscent of Beetlejuice – but it definitely hits the mark as a Halloween horror slasher. Sliding in at Number 6 – Dead Space. Alright – let’s be serious now – you guys want some genuinely terrifying horror masterpieces, right? Well – unless you’ve been living underneath a console shaped rock, then you’ve probably played Dead Space in some shape or form – be it on your own in a dark room – or watching someone else behind a pillow. In terms of gameplay – then Dead Space 2 should definitely make this list over its first title – but Dead Space, while being a little clunky in the controls – makes the grade down to its genuinely edge-of-your-seat horror-thriller moments.

This game is creepy as hell, and delivers it in bucketloads. It plays into the same vein as what the early Resident Evil series managed to capture – that bleak feeling of hopelessness, balanced on a knife edge by the curiosity of what the hell is that at the end of this corridor? Jumpscares, invincible necromorphs, and a killer soundtrack. I’ll say no more. Popping in at Number 5 – Grim Fandango Alright guys – I get it, this game isn’t scary at all – but Halloween is a time for the dead to stretch their legs and have their moment in the spotlight – and what better way to remember and appreciate the souls deceased than with the absolute masterpiece of a game, 1998’s Grim Fandango by LucasArts. Seriously – this is one of the greatest games of all time – testament to its 2015 remastered version for pretty much every platform, and its planned remastering for the Nintendo Switch.

There’s a reason that this game keeps cropping up. It’s a mish-mash of film noir and Mexican Aztec beliefs, choreographed effortlessly by Manny Calavera – skeletal travel agent turned sleuth as he journeys through the Land of the Dead. Also, I don’t say this lightly – but this game has possibly the greatest soundtrack of all time – if I haven’t convinced you, then play it purely for that reason. Next up at Number 4 – Until Dawn. Yeah – probably the last game I’ve played that genuinely scared me.

Not for it’s particularly original plot – or groundbreaking mechanics – but because there’s just so much that you can get wrong. Until Dawn is oppressive in its player punishment, and the anxiety of making the wrong decision in a split second scenario feeds that gnawing fear throughout the game. Also, just a genuinely great polish to this game – simple yet effective gameplay – and a well executed premise that plays as a love letter to the horror genre. Admittedly – it’s probably too short, and it gets pulled down by some of the visual patchiness – but if you want to feel like a teen in a slasher movie – then play Until Dawn, because it delivers.

Coming in next at Number 3 – Luigi’s Mansion. Alright, alright – I hear you, Nintendo can’t do scary – Luigi’s too goofy. But that’s not what we’re getting at here – we’re talking about atmosphere, and what better way to get into the Halloween spirit than to play a vacuum welding plumber – crawling through a creepy house and cleaning up poltergeists?

Well – with the best selling Gamecube title of all time, that’s how. Also, it’s just a great game all in all – and is testament to Nintendo’s enjoyable simplicity. Yeah, I heard its shortcomings – It was criticised on release for its minimal length – but I think that plays into our advantage as a Halloween title – and an atmospheric classic that you can complete in an entire October evening.

Next up at our Number 2 spot – Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Yes – yes – yes. A truly, truly terrifying modern Horror classic. For me, the 2010 title from Frictional Games delivers on so many levels that it’s hard to discern what actually makes this game so scary. Again, like we’ve seen with titles like Resident Evil and Dead Space – it has that hallway element of complete futility – and even darker still, Amnesia pits the player with completely zero weaponry. Our only armor against the horrific nightmare is light itself – a rusty lantern, a spare match – a tinderbox – why did we just walk down this corridor, we’ve just ran out of oil – oh shit, what’s that noise.

Yeah, it plays pretty simply – yeah, it’s plot may be a little ham-fisted and cliche – but damn, is this game scary. I understand why good horror games are so successful – and why bad ones fall short of the mark, but for me – Amnesia is a completely different beast. I’m not saying it’s the scariest game ever made – possibly far from it – but it’s something you need to experience – preferably alone, at night, on Halloween.

And finally – at our Number 1 spot – Silent Hill 2. Because this one – in fact – is actually the scariest game ever made, and if you haven’t played it – then I highly recommend that you do so this Halloween. Or tomorrow. Or whatever’s best for you.

Just play it. Silent Hill 2 is a game that just makes you /feel/ weird, from start to finish – and doesn’t let up for a single moment, even in it’s down moments. The entire game is just so unnerving – delivering this weird, unexplainable sense of uneasiness where something about this game just feels off. Even down to the way the controls handle – the way the camera can’t quite give you the right viewpoint – or the way that the player won’t move in the direction that he’s facing.

Without spoiling anything from this game – you play as James Sunderland as he makes his way through the strange town of Silent Hill after receiving a mysterious letter from his wife. That’s all I’m gonna say. Just play it if you haven’t. And Happy Halloween. Unfortunately folks, that’s all we’ve got time for today – cheers for sticking around. Normal viewing will return to Kelly tomorrow, but thanks for having me right here on Top 10 Gaming
