Feed Addictions

I’ve been watching a lot of video games, lately.

And it’s an amazing nostalgia.

If you didn’t know my origin story – the short version is that I was video game geek who wore colorful socks turned into a buffed out, bald, bearded grown man.

Video games were my jam – I even to school for it, briefly, and now I’m going into marketing as a career, cause I love to sell and write, and am on Twitter like a mad man.

So, now I just watch video games on Youtube, and recently I finished watching God of War and Fortnite.

And given my marketing knowledge – I saw a big idea in video game design that is good for marketers.

The big idea is to make your product/ service/ idea addicting.

God of War – designwise is freaking good cause it’s addicting (besides the amazing story, acting, etc, etc).

It’s so addicting – that after watching a video, I found myself saying Kratos’ dialogue like – Boy!

Or performing his actions (the man throws his axe around a lot.

Like this –

God of War 4

Man, I used do that when I was a kid…. Acted out certain characters…

… Anyway, the more I watch – the more addicted I become. I can’t get enough.

God of War sold me, hard.

Just because of it’s addicting nature.

The best products do this – iPhones, cigarettes, cars,  grass fed burgers, etc.

That’s what I try to do with my personality, writing, and ideas.

I try to find an addiction and feed it – again and again and again.

Cause that’s what lasts.
