Are you passionate about gaming? This may not just be RPGs. You could love countless different styles and types of games. If that’s the case, then it might be worth exploring how you can venture down new avenues in the gaming world. There are lots of possibilities that are going to be worth considering here and could help you find new fun in this exciting passion. Here are some of the key suggestions that you might like to consider yourself.

Cosplay

First, you could think about exploring an option like cosplay. The big benefit of cosplay is that it will provide you with a way to stretch and test your creative muscles. Plenty of muscles find great fun in creating costumes based on characters from their favorite games. This can be worn at festivals and events.

Alternatively, some people even make a substantial career out of cosplaying. One of the most famous examples is Jessica Nigri who rose to fame after cosplaying professionally as the main character from Lollipop Chainsaw. Dressing up can include makeup such as mascara or hand made costumes. 

Competitive Tournaments

If you love competitive style gaming, then you might want to consider entering real world competitions where you can test your skill against other gamers. You can explore everything from racing tournaments to Fortnite and Call of Duty to name just a few. It’s also possible to compete in single player or solo games too.

One of the ways people do this is by engaging in speed run competitions. Speed running involves getting through a game as quickly as possible and ensuring that they do so without any mistakes. This can even include no hits to health bars. It’s quite a challenge and that makes it all the more impressive when people succeed in competitions like this. 

Live Streaming 

Another option would be live streaming. The big benefit of live streaming is that you can show off your skill or passion for a game without competing directly with anyone. You might think that live streaming is only popular for buzzy games like Fortnite.

However, if you explore networks such as Twitch, you’ll discover that people watch others playing every type of game as long as they make it interesting. As such, you may want to focus on building up a personal brand and ensuring that followers have a reason to connect with you. 

Blogging 

If you love writing and games, then you could combine the two and potentially even transform this into a full blown career or side hustle. The option we’re referring to is blogging. These days it’s easier than ever to set up a blog and post whatever type of content that you wish. You can set up a blog where you write about different games that you love. You can also review games as they emerge and post about your experiences. Blogging is a great way to join an active community and engage in various discussions.  

Use RPG Maker 

Another option would be to create your own game. It’s commonly assumed that creating your own game requires skills in areas such as coding. However, this is not the case. Instead, it is possible to build your own game online using highly user-friendly builder software. One example of this would be RPG Maker. As the name suggests, this can be used to create your own RPG game. It is accessible for everyone and simple enough that children have been able to create their own fun RPG games with a complete personal twist. 

Public Events And Celebrations 

Finally, you could think about attending public events as well as celebrations. The benefit of taking this step is that you can have fun meeting other gamers like you and you’ll also be able to interact or engage with the creators of your favorite titles. These events are held annually throughout the year and there’s often something that all lovers of games can enjoy. Arguably, one of the most popular events is E3. This is livestreamed annually and used to be accessible to the public. However, like other events that changed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is currently unclear when it will once again be a live event accessible to all. 

We hope this helps you see that there are a variety of fun ways that you can take your love of gaming to the next level. In doing so, you can explore this passion and hobby through a new perspective and ensure that you get even more from something that is undoubtedly a key element of your life.
