Should I play Genshin Impact?

Genshin Impact is a gacha game that falls under the following categories of games: exploration, action, role-playing. It’s heavily inspired by the likes of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, while bringing in a memorable cast of characters as you travel the world of Teyvat in search of your sibling. It is strictly cooperative player-vs-environment (no PvP), with up to three other team members helping you in your ventures if you choose to enter co-op.

If that is not your thing, don’t play it.

If the very thought of loot boxes make you physically lurch, then don’t play it.

If you don’t have the necessary self-discipline to stop you from chucking hundreds or thousands of dollars into a game, then don’t play it.

If you are allergic to grinding in video games, don’t play it.

If you want a complete experience from start to finish, don’t play it (as it is still currently under development and will likely be in continuous development for almost a decade thanks to it being a games as a service model of play).

But if this is your thing, and you don’t mind keeping the whole random number generation in check, and you want to experience the story as the game develops, then by all means play Genshin Impact! I personally play on three servers (TW, Asia, and America), and I’ve been playing it almost exclusively since around September or October of last year.
