Red Dead Redemption

Most companies and people have found themselves working from home in the modern crisis and some of them are fortunate to have such an opportunity as there are millions of people who lost their jobs. However, working remotely has brought some new difficulties that need solutions and, luckily, the bulk found them quickly. There are meeting apps like Zoom, Skype, Discord, and more saw a surge in new users after millions of people had to coordinate team meetings online on such apps.

Author and artist Viviane Schwarz reveal her experiences on Twitter that she has organized a meeting on the video game Red Dead Redemption. And reading her tweets definitely gives you a good idea of how entertaining it is. Now here is the suggestion for all of us, I wish my manager pick something from this and do our meetings on the online world of RDR2.

By using the famous online game didn’t come without its difficulties. “It takes about an hour to set up and unlock the free play mode,” Viviane told us. “The servers seem to go down quite a lot when logging on,” she added. Still, according to Schwarz, this option was more useful than Zoom. “It only makes sense if everyone has a compatible console or PC,” she added to the list of disadvantages. “It is an open-world game, so anyone can interrupt your meeting—however, they can’t overhear your voice chat,” Vivianesaid.

“It would make a lot more sense to meet in a cross-platform game that does not have a tutorial—Minecraft is popular,” Schwarz recommended. She also said that people taking their business meetings to Minecraft might be a more famous option.

Responses have been so overwhelming Schwarz had to mute the thread entirely. “It’s been nice to chat with people about their experiences of having meetings in games, and seeing people discover that they could at least hang out with their friends and go for walks together that way,” she concluded.
