well after watching a topic on this a year ago. people play video games to do things they cant or are not and they want to be.
i play shooting,crime, and racing games mainly cause i like to blow shit up. also whats more fun than blowing a teammates head off with a rifle, racing cause drivings fast and in my country we cant go fast, crime cause if you get caught in the game you can restart simple. but nothing compares to blowing $h!t up is fun.

basically sums it up lol oh and it lets you be someone else, one day your a Russian solider liberating Russia from the Nazis. the next your in a post nuclear zone helping slaves and slaying mutants when the next day you are the general of chapter of space marines holding the foul orcs at bay.

Escapism, pure and simple.

After training and sweating in the gym for a few hours each day, nothing like playing a couple of hours on Fifa or Olympics, or COD...

Because if I didn't play video games, I would have to [scary prospect] go out into the world and live my life [/scary prospect].

All is dust...

the first would probably be Medal of Honor, as they seem to depict ALL the German forces of WWII as Nazi's, not surprising from a game designed by people who have never read a history book
