A Travian Addict…Is he?
My eldest son is so fond of computer games that he seldoms wink his eyes when already in front of his computer. I noticed this when I caught him still in front of the computer even during the wee hours of the morning.
Took a glimpse
Knowing his strong character, I secretly took a glimpse of what he was doing at such odd hours. I was surprised!
My son was playing Travian. He’ll leave the computer when in urgent need to pee. Oops, how’s that again?
What is this game called Travian?
I don’t want to disturb him – instead of asking – I searched and came up with this. Travian is a successful game of German origin. Today, it is considered as one successful computer game with more than 3 million members.
Why become addict?
This really surprised me. Why this game made my son “addict”? I continued my search and come up with this good explanation.
The game starts with the user as a leader of a small village. A waiting time to start build the village to gain enough resources and develop a stronghold of armies with complete army amenities needed to protect the village’s and its people.
Now I understand
After reading the concept of this game called Travian, I know now why my son seems to be addicted, and never leave his eyes away from the computer screen. He is only protecting his village from attackers – users around the globe.
Like our leaders
If only our leaders today act like the village chief in this computer game, I don’t think war will emerge.
Now, is my son a Travian addict? Only he can tell.
