George Bernard Shaw famously said, “We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.”
Your whole world changes when you cross the threshold into motherhood. While before, you were preoccupied with things such as going to happy hour and planning spring break activities, motherhood brought new responsibilities.
However, becoming a mother does not mean leaving behind all the things you loved to do. Even more, motherhood can bring about a whole new realm of hobbies and interests for you to explore. You don’t have to refrain from doing things you may find fun out of fear of appearing “childlike” or “immature.” Life is too short to care about what others have to say.
While you may have purchased a video game console for your kids to play during their free time, you can also reap the benefits. Besides, you’d be healing your inner child in ways never imagined once you start tapping into the creativity you thought you had lost.
Unleash your inner kid at heart and try playing some of the most popular video games among moms. You won’t regret it!
After spending all of your days working, cooking, and making sure your kids are taken care of, there is nothing like immersing your mind in something away from reality.
Animal Crossing seems like a simple kid’s video game at first glance, but you will become hooked after a few minutes of playing. Animal Crossing is a cartoon, virtual world filled with animal villagers in which you, the only human, start building and expanding your own town. You can buy a house, dig up fossils, and make friends with other animal villagers. Really, the story can go however you decide.
Isn’t it nice to be fully in control and at peace? It’s a lighthearted, relaxing game where you embark on journeys with all types of cute creatures.
So if you have a Nintendo gaming system, this video game should be on your list.
Crash Bandicoot is probably a game you remember from your childhood. I remember spending hours playing at my friend’s house any chance I had.
For moms with that competitive spirit, the Crash Bandicoot series has a wide selection of games for you to pick from – the classic video games from years ago to newer, revamped games that involve racing. Crash is a bandicoot that brings you along on a journey through various worlds where you must undergo multiple obstacles to beat all levels and complete your mission. Talk about entertaining!
Lucky for you, Crash Bandicoot is available on virtually all platforms. From Nintendo to Playstation and Xbox One, Crash is a game any mom can play.
Plants vs. Zombies
With the spooky season coming up, thoughts about witches, vampires, and, you guessed it, zombies start coming to mind.
In a nice twist to the typical creepy zombies, Plants vs. Zombies is a video game in which you have to protect yourself from a zombie invasion (The Walking Dead, anyone?) with your plant weapons.
In a surprising turn of events, you are provided with an arsenal of special “weapons” to protect yourself from hundreds of zombie invaders. There’s nothing like shooting down a large group of zombies with pea plants, cacti, and sunflowers.
Dragon Ball FighterZ
For those days that you feel you need to blow off some steam, Dragon Ball FighterZ is probably one of the best fighting video games from recent years. It combines the nostalgia of our favorite childhood heroes and villains from Dragon Ball, such as Goku, Vegeta, Piccolo, and Frieza.
Practice your virtual fighting skills and become a master at beating even the toughest of characters. It will be almost as if you teleported into an episode of Dragon Ball yourself. The nostalgia.
Connect with your inner child and start enjoying everything you once loved!
