Yeah, you kind of need to at least test that so you can at least tell if it will work or not. That is kind of the point, right? To see if something will go smoothly, you have to test it out first. It could be a simple kind of testing or maybe it has something to do with a lot of complicated stuff that you may need to do and have. Either way, to get the thing to work, you have to through valve testing.
We often see a lot of valve in a puzzle in these triple A games too. Like in Resident Evil sometimes you have to go through some puzzles in order to get through a goal. Whilst killing zombies of course. That is just par for the course of those games but you get the point.
Usually, they are found in the most absurd places that do not even correlate to its use. And then you would have to walk all the way to the place that you remember that as some kind of use for a valve. What happens next?
Most of the time it is just to shut off a really toxic or dangerous kind of steam that is spewing in the corridor or someplace that you are supposed to go through. That is it. All you need really is to get through that place just so you could either progress the story or to get something important that could help you upgrade your weapons or something.
Most of the time, it IS to progress the whole story. And when you are running away from the Tyrant, or Mr. X if you will, you kind of have to get past the whole deadly and lethal steam thing just so you could live another day. In the game. We are talking about a game. Alright.
And not to be all critical about this, but why do they always place the valves in different places that have to be so far away from where they are supposed to be? Is it to make the game more challenging for the players? If so, then it should fine.
But in real life, it makes no sense and someone who does this in real life ought to get burned or eaten by zombies. Particularly while they are still alive just so they can suffer from wasting our goddamn time. What if the whole apocalypse thing was real?
What if pour world really is like that? Do you think we have all the time in the world to be wasting it on trying to find a goddamn valve? No of course not. We would be trying to get out of there and find a safe place to go while simultaneously trying to keep ourselves alive.
And shoot some undead pieces of crap too. If you think getting bitten by a tiny kitten is bad, just wait until a dead person literally tears into your skin and peels it off you with its own teeth. Yeah, not what you would imagine a Friday night should be.
