I played a lot of Gran Turismo and other racing games when I was younger but I never got in my car and raced around town. That doesnt mean that other kids did not though…there are people out there that do some pretty stupid things, whether it’s due to some sort of mental defect, poor role models/parental figures or just plain stupidity, I wont speculate on that but I will speculate that video games are based on fantasy (whether it is racing/action/faith based etc.) and only a weak/diseased mind confuses fantasy with reality.
With that being said, I must admit, some of the current crop of video games are pretty damn disturbing.
Whatever happened to games like Puzzle Bobble, Tetris and my personal favorite Zero Zone? (Zero Zone could be found in bars in the early 80’s, basically a tetris style game that as you cleared more of the screen, a semi nude woman was revealed in the background…quite an incentive to clear the screen)
