Rocket League Video Teaches Us To Accept Our Failures And Move On

Rocket League Video Teaches Us to Accept Our Failures and Move On

I want to close out my time as your Kotaku ancient sentient robot weekend overlord with a final, Zen-like moment, thanks to the wonder that is Rocket League.

Sometimes, things just don't go your way. You have to let it wash over you and through you, refocus your energies, and persevere. Laugh at yourself, repeatedly, and move on.

Rocket League teaches us that sometimes, we all fail. Sometimes, we all bumble as though suddenly key areas of our brains have ceased to function. Sometimes, we all look ridiculous.

As in this video, courtesy of YouTuber Tahoomas, Rocket League teaches us that we are, all of us, only human.

And also that playing soccer with rocket-powered cars is tough, folks.

Thanks for reading and have fun out there.

    Haha, brilliant. Definitely had similar moments but not to that level.

    The amount of super fails I've had in Rocket League... but I never play ranked so no one can get shitty. I have a blast playing it though.

    That's a little deep for a rocket powered soccer cars the video game. Maybe I will have an Epiphany while playing rocket powered soccer cars one day too. Until then it's just some fun, why try make everything so meaningful haha
