How’s that for a strange article title, written by a gaming company? Why would HiTech Creations, makers of Aces High, the leader in World War 2 flight simulators, suggest to you that you should play our game in moderation?

Because it’s the right thing to do, that’s why!

Allow us to explain!

The need for exercise

As much as we love that you play Aces High, the combat simulator with attitude, we must concede that there is virtually no exercise involved with playing our online game. Unless you count the movement of your hands as you manipulate the controller, which isn’t much, playing a game is not going to be good training for an athletic event.

You need to play in moderation and get out and exercise.

As much as we love this country of ours, we also have to admit that obesity is a real problem, and playing online games for hours, without a balance in exercise, is not good for anyone.

Get out and exercise! It’s good for your physical and mental health!

The real dangers of addiction

Yes, gaming can be addictive. Psychologists say so and we believe them, but even without the word of psychologists, we would believe so because we’ve seen it. Again, balance is the key. Playing Aces High in moderation is fine, but day after day of playing for six, seven, eight hours or more, that is in no way moderation.

Seek balance in life

What does a healthy life look like for a gamer? We envision a life where a gamer plays maybe a couple hours each day, but also exercises at least an hour each day, good cardio exercise, and then chases after other interests during the rest of the day. Add to that the need to work at a job, eat properly, and sleep.

A healthy life has a balance of good foods, consistent sleep, physical activity, and entertainment. That’s all we’re saying with regards to playing Aces High.
