Ad Astra Abyssosque! Why is Genshin Impact a worthwhile game?


I’m sure you have seen this game floating all over social media recently! Genshin Impact is an open-world action role-playing game available on PlayStation, PC, Android, and iOS.

The game’s storyline focuses on a Traveler who is on a quest to traverse the seven nations of Teyvat ruled by the Seven Archons of seven elements to find their missing twin.

Throughout the Traveler’s journey, they will meet different characters that the player can acquire to be a part of the Traveler’s party!

However, Beware of its money-making mechanics!

To acquire characters and weapons, the player must grind or pay for its RNG-based (Random Number Generator) wish system which is similar to gambling where you bet on luck to get a desirable prize. The characters and weapons are categorized as standard (3-star, 4-star) and limited (5-star).

This system is a factor of what made Genshin Impact one of the games with the highest revenues of all time achieved in under a year with a shimmering $2 billion (PHP 101 billion)!

But how did that happen?

It’s because Genshin Impact is one of the best games you can invest your time in! (And money, maybe!) And here’s why!

Missed traveling in real life? Travel throughout Teyvat instead!

Since its release, Genshin Impact has established its reputation in the gaming community as one of the best free games in the market due to its grand production value. And this game’s graphics are something to applaud the developers for.

Playing this game feels like you are in another world because of its meticulous open-world environment where you can enjoy the scenery, fight monsters, and take photos of your character.

Another win for Genshin Impact is its action RPG mechanics where you control the characters in real-time with their unique fighting movements and skill casting, especially when you acquire a 5-star character where they have their own “burst” animations that you won’t get sick of watching while you are fighting enemies!

“Wait, that’s it? Where’s the rest of it?”

The game’s lore is about the Traveler discovering all seven nations to complete the storyline; however, three nations are only available, as of writing, and more nations will be available in later updates. Since there is no endgame yet, the storyline is shrouded in mystery that you would be thrilled to uncover! But settle for the intriguing theories made by the community for now!

Gotta collect them all!

It’s safe to say that the characters made Genshin Impact live up to its popularity. The characters are uniquely illustrated, and their anime-style design is maintained in-game which attracts the players to acquire and build their so-called ‘waifus’ and ‘husbandos.’ And there’s more to come!

This game saved my sanity during many, many lockdowns. So, if you are looking for a game that will get your gears going, this is for you! Genshin Impact is a game that will consume your day and will probably tempt your wallet at some point. So, make sure you play with moderation!
