Cyber-psychologist Berni Goode talking about Flow on Charlie Brooker’s How Videogames Changed the World.
Flow is extremely important. So, so important.
It’s what keeps some people sane. It’s what drives the world’s most skilled and accomplished athletes, the most intense gamers, the hardcore hobbyists, even many of the most talented artists, musicians and actors - flow is what you get when unstoppable drive meets an unflinching will and unlimited dedication.
Flow is being utterly, truly “in the zone”. And it’s one of the most amazing feelings there is.
This is why finding a sport, or a hobby, or a martial art, or a handicraft, or a new video game, or any skill-based activity that uses focus and requires practice and repetition is so beneficial for things like depression and anxiety and overall mental/physical well-being.
Dragon Warriors has an interesting history. It first appeared in the 1980s in the UK, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia as a series of paperback rulebooks. The game was resurrected in 2008 and since then a number of supplements and adventures have been written for the game, which takes place in an alternate version of Europe’s middle ages.
I’ve had the game for a couple of years now, but have never gotten around to playing it. The grim setting is well-conveyed through Jon Hodgson’s evocative illustrations and the writing of Dave Morris and Oliver Johnson. Mechanically Dragon Warriors doesn’t stray far from the ordinary, but that’s not necessarily a detriment.
Flipping through the rulebook and perusing the materials available at DriveThruRPG is making me want to give it a try.
THE CUTEST AND MOST ADORABLE THING YOU WILL EVER READ IN YOUR WHOLE LIFE
HOW ARE NOSELESS AND MOUTHLESS THOR AND LOKI SO ADORABLE
(Source: The amazingly talented and creative Lauren Gracek)I kinda love that this is less grim than the story it’s based on.
