Six Benefits of playing Cooking Games
Play, Learn, Cook, Repeat!
The number of cooking games available across different gaming platforms might take you by surprise. So what is it that drives people towards making and playing more and more cooking games?
For starters, cooking indeed is an integral part of everyday life. But what makes this routine survival aspect a subject of fascination? Read on to find out.
1.Learn new cuisines:
Cooking games are not all games. 😉 They open up a tempting world of new worldly cuisines, rich flavors and cravings that you may not even know you had. On a more serious note, cooking games enrich your knowledge about the culinary world - from the fact that French Fries are not actually from France, to finding out bananas are actually a kind of berry… you can expect to learn a lot more about food than you do in your real kitchen.
2. Find new recipes:
A lot of cooking games feature real recipes. They could be an exotic dish that sounds like something Gordon Ramsay would approve of, or something an amateur cook would whip up but with a zesty twist. If you're one of those who is not fazed by yummy looking dishes on your phone, then you're off the hook. But if your mouth does water on the sight of yumminess, cooking games got all the recipes you need to get creative in the kitchen.
3. Encourage the lil ones to cook:
Over the years, kids are getting closer and closer to the art of cooking than ever. Flip channels on your TV and you'll find a trail of shows like Master Chef Junior, Chopped Junior, Kids Baking Championship etc. But let's be real, how many of us are willing to hand over our spotless kitchens as a canvas to our lil ones? Lo and behold, cooking games for girls and boys to your rescue.
4. Improve social Interaction skills:
Ever struggled with finding friends who share the same interest in cooking as you? Or are you an introvert who's too shy to interact in social scenarios? Don't fret my friend, most cooking games offer an in-built social space to make in-game friends, chat with them, help one another with cooking and improve the overall gaming experience. And if your stars are lucky… you might even end up bonding in real life.
5. Age is just a number:
Just like real cooking, cooking game is one of the few game genres that is not restricted to a narrowed down demographic. People of all age, gender and geographies can enjoy different episodes in their cooking diary - because love for food is universal. 😉
6. Stress Relief:
Cooking is therapeutic! But how can you enjoy it when your tight schedule leaves little to no scope for your fav hobby? This is not to say cooking in game can ever replace cooking in real, but a true foodie will seize the opportunity to whip up delicacies virtually either during commute, short work breaks, or even before going to bed. This can take your mind off of certain unpleasant thoughts and relieve stress to some extent.
