We’ve all dreamed of having some kind of ability or power. Playing RPGs allows us to dive into a world where our avatars can wield weapons to defeat opponents and conjure magic to beat the competition. But which RPG abilities would benefit you most in real life?
One of the most exciting things about playing an RPG game is incorporating abilities into a strategy to win. These abilities range from the simple to the more complex and can be used in innovative ways. But just imagine how beneficial these RPG abilities would be in real life.
Most wizards and spellcasters in RPGs can conjure something using magic. While it takes experience and skill to use this magic to its full potential, a lot can be achieved with a simple enchantment. Whether you wanted to clean the house quicker or transform someone into a chicken, there’s a spell for that.
The power to wield fire might seem something almost Neanderthal, but it’s one of the most useful abilities in RPGs. Whether using it to help build a shelter, cook food, or defend yourself against enemies, RPG flamethrowers are in high demand. In real life, you could ensure you never have to pay a heating bill again...
The ability to fly or even just teleport would likely save you hundreds in bus and train fares, while reducing your carbon footprint. You may need to navigate power lines, large birds, and airplanes, but flying would save you hours of time. And being able to teleport would mean you were never late for anything ever again.
RPGs differ from other games with their gameplay and game mechanics. These could be useful if they were actually applied in real life. But which game mechanics would be most beneficial?
The ability to save the game and respawn would be useful in real life. We are able to save our progress and attempt risky moves, safe in the knowledge that we can reset the game and respawn. How handy would it be in real life to be able to avoid that embarrassing encounter or remember to say just the right thing at the right time?
Games such as Raid: Shadow Legends task players with choosing the right combination of champions in order to reign supreme. With more than 300 champions to choose from, it can be challenging to find the right ones. Imagine how easy real life would be if we could just pick and choose people with different skills whenever we needed them. They could help us unclog the sink, rewire a plug, or even renovate an entire house.
RPGs use teamwork and cooperation in order to win the battle and save the day. Taking inspiration from classic RPGs, which focus on working together, we can be better at completing tasks and asking for help. It takes all kinds of different abilities to succeed in an RPG, and this cooperation could be replicated in real life.
