BENGALURU : Rohan Krishnan is having the best summer vacations ever. He gets to do what he loves the most – playing video games. The 17-year-old, who is fresh out of school, fell in love with video games at the age of three. Unlike other primary school children, Rohan used to stay up all night playing games. When he grew up, he met more kids who shared the same passion. “I joined a group who used to play video games all day just like me. I befriended them because I wanted to build my knowledge on games,” says Rohan.
Not just video games, Rohan loves to play outdoor games, too. If he is not in front of his computer, then he is out playing badminton, his favourite sport, or at the gym. He is aware that playing games continuously is not good for his health, so he looks forward to going on adventure trips as often as possible. Rohan loves to play first and third person games, as it feels like being in the game. “I play Prince of Persia, Call of Duty, Far cry 5, Tomb Raider, GTA vice city, GTA San Andreas, Pacific Rim, Counter Strike, Splinter Cell Black List, Assassins creed rouge, Quantum break, Half Life, Halo 5, Witcher 3, and Titan fall 2,” he says.
The teenager prefers to play PC games rather than PS4 or Playstation. “My favourite PC game is Halo 5. It is one of the best games I have played so far,” he says. Rohan plays at many centres but by far RNR Gaming Center in Vellore is his favourite. Though gaming for hours together affects his family time, his parents don’t mind. “Spending more time gaming helps me understand the dimensions of different games, the differences and their features,” says Rohan.
Rohan wants to continue being part of the gaming world, either as a gamer or as a creator. He is also learning the nuances of designing games. “I want to create games in the future. I would like to create a very realistic game, which suits all the professional gamers,” he says.Time is not a constraint for Rohan. When he sits down to play a game he ensures that he finishes as much as he can.
“I can even go beyond 32 hours at a stretch,” he says, adding, “When my board exams were going on, the only way my parents could stop me from gaming was to hide my laptop, or remove all the discs of my Playstation and keep them in some unknown place,” he shares. Rohan is working on reducing the number of gaming hours because he wants to focus on his education and career. “I want to devote my time to other important phases of my life but I will not completely quit gaming. That’s the only way I relax myself,” he says.
