Ok folks, I get the irony in living on a farm then sitting inside playing HayDay. Or being poor, playing The Sims Freeplay and realising that even in a game I struggle to afford anything (its going to take 1 person working like 8 days to pay for a bed?! They need a bloody charity shop on this thing!). Even GTA5 where I can play out some sort of criminal fantasy, i’m the most rubbish slapstick crim that ever existed. I’ve died far too many times to admit. On the plus side though, I’ve learnt what happens if you jump out of a moving vehicle on a freeway without even getting a scratch on my *real* body. Nice! Turns out you get run over. Also, if you drive into something hard (like a parked car), when you’re flying through the air out of the front windscreen, apparently your arms stay limp by your side. Totes educational.
I guess people who think video games create psychotic killers should come talk to me. Turns out they’re wrong. You learn lessons from everything in life. You find out what happens without actually doing it in reality, so technically, if anything, video games make you a BETTER addition to society. You don’t find out the hard way! Feel like randomly shooting someone with a sniper gun? Just play a video game! Its quicker, you don’t have to leave your house, spend a dime and you can just pause it whenever you feel the need to pee.
Anyway, its all fun and games. Its just a newer version of ‘Cops and Robbers’ from our childhood. Except now we have stronger finger muscles! Yep, i’m pretty sure Mortal Kombat has given me man hands.. Yet I still struggle to open a salsa jar 😦
