Last week I posed this question to those who follow me on Twitter. It is about Video Game Powers.
This week I'd like a fun gaming conversation. What power/perk in a video game would you like in real life? Mine is easy, I'd like Kratos' ability to call the Leviathan Axe back to his hand but I'd like that power for things like the remote control or burritos. How about you? pic.twitter.com/yCH9ouGgRf

Don’t you hate it when you have your feet propped up. You are comfortable after a hard day. Then, only to realize the TV remote is on a table? Wouldn’t it be nice to raise your hand and then the remote flies to your hand?
So here are some video game features or powers we would like in real life.
Almost instant health regeneration a la BF1. Not only would that solve ageing, but it would also take the risk out of a lot of things.

I particularly find this would be great for hangovers. Last time I had a hangover I was in New York City after a bottomless Mimosa brunch. Great idea at the time, but it would have been nice if I could bounce back immediately.
I would want the ability to save at checkpoints. Big interview coming up? Save progress.

This would be perfect for job interviews or when you are in trouble with your significant other. You always know when a speech check fails badly and it would be great to actually get a “Redo.”
I mean, I kind of do this in the game Fallout…
Rest/sleep that Jigglypuff has in Super Smash Bros.

As someone who brain works a million miles per minute, I too would love the ability to just sleep like that. Would be waaay better than melatonin.
I'd like a Witcher sense for when I am always loosing stuff and maybe the power of the signs as well!

Yes, I’m always losing my wallet or glasses and Witcher sense would definitely help with that!
Physical Video Game Powers
Running and Jumping
To run and jump like Mario or have a sword like Link.

It would be nice to be able to jump like Mario. That guy can change course mid air. Imagine if you add the cape and glide over crowds at Comic Con with that perk?
Haha, that's an awesome power, Geek!
I'd like Mipha's Grace from BotW. As long as I wasn't killed more than once per 13 min, I'd essentially be invincible ?

As long as reality doesn’t become Cuphead, you are golden!
Having an Army
Video game? Hmmm any Diablo Summoner character to make my own army at will: https://t.co/vUPj1yokYM
— Nikki?Zombie Queen ?? (@NickyWhat) May 24, 2018
Yes, I too would like an Army at my disposal. No reason… we aren’t planning world domination over here…nothing to see folks!
I will join the UFC and before every fight, give me the star from Super Mario! BRING IT!
— K Chan (@GamerKraytos) May 24, 2018
Or… use it in boxing and make at least a 100+ Million knocking out Floyd Mayweather…and who wouldn’t want to see that?
One Last One
So, I just came up with a new one, sorry guys. But I would like the ability from Lego video games to wave your hands around pieces build itself. Would be nice for IKEA Furniture. Don't want an IKEA fail. pic.twitter.com/yLfIUXszyO

Would be nice for parents on Christmas Eve too building those damn children toy kitchen sets.
