*insert this isnt a shit game clip”
“This isn’t a shit game. This is a very satisfying gaming experience” These words perfectly encapsulate how I feel about Gorilla Tag. *fade to Gorilla Tag logo* So there’s this game ive been playing a lot lately, its kinda weird, but also the best game i have ever played. Its called Gorilla Tag.
What is Gorilla Tag
This is a VR game where you’re a Gorilla and you tag other Gorillas. It’s quite simple, you just swing your arms like a monkey to move around. It’s incredibly fun, physically active and best of all, ITS FREE.
How I discovered Gorilla Tag
One day I was scrolling on Tiktok and came across this video. *insert weest tiktok* This guy was playing this game for the first time, it looked fun, so I googled it. It was free so I downloaded it and played the game myself. It was love at first tag.
Playing Tag as a Gorilla is a novel idea already. But adding the innovative movement system, makes Gorilla Tag one of THE best VR games. What’s even more interesting is you have no legs in Gorilla Tag. You are just a head, body and arms. This allows you to slap yourself around the world, navigating purely with your arms, no buttons or thumbsticks required. Pure monkey freedom.
But what is freedom without people to share it with? What is monke without other monkes to monke with? I have always said the Gorilla Tag community is unmatched. The lobbies are like MW2 lobbies back in 2009. Open voice chat is in full effect from the second you finish the tutorial. In fact the tutorial ends with you jumping directly into a game. Screaming children, running for your life and making new friends are all things you can expect from a Gorilla Tag lobby. It’s pure chaos and I absolutely love it.
The Game Choice (Tag)
But like I mentioned the game of tag in VR is already novel. Prior to Gorilla Tag, It hasn’t really been done before. See I can remember searching up Gorilla Tag all the way back in March of 2021. There was little known about the game then. But one Reddit post stood out to me and helped me understand this game a little more. *insert reddit post video* This game was from a single person. WHAT?!?! This wasn’t the careful thought out craftsmanship from a AAA studio? That’s right Gorilla Tag was created by a single person, Lemming.
Easy to Learn, Hard to Master (Fun to master)
The thing about this game is it’s easy to learn, you pick it up fast. But, it is very hard to master. There are countless tutorials on YouTube, shoutout the OG legend jmancurly, teaching you how to play and get better at the game. If you thought tagging another gorilla was hard enough, try climbing a tree. Now try chasing a monkey up that tree. Some monkeys are fast, some monkeys will juke you. Some monkeys are so good they can run on the walls. Like I said, its easy to learn, hard to master. That makes this game extremely appealing to everyone.
Oh yeah, and there’s mods as well. You can change your skin to a rainbow, be spiderman or even pull up with a TEC-9. But that’s a story for another day. Gorilla Tag is the best game ever. Go get it now. Reject humanity, return to monke!
