There are times in the natural lifespan of a gamer when that guy or girl puts the controller down, looks outside the window, sees the sunlight swept over the land and recognizes some familiar faces from distant memories!
“Is that my mother? Where is dad? Why is mum breastfeeding that small child? Is that child my brother? Or sister? Did I even had a brother or sister? When did that happen, holy crap how long was I zoned out?”
At times like these, that this historical creature called a gamer of the homosapiens’ goodfornthingum branch of species tries to acclimatize its newfound and somewhat shocking information and deals with it with another game, the kind that should ask its whole demand to be at ease ASAP.
And at such times games like TWOM are used due to their uniqueness and great demanding gameplay.
