When life meets video games

1 replies 13 views Edited Mar 8, 2012

We are here due to a common thread.  Up to 9 threads at once I believe actually.

We spend time here, and that denotes a certain amount of time spent with our mistress......  The PS3 of course.

Its such a part of the daily routine now, I ponder what would life be like without video gaming as a whole.

Would we be more prone to travel the world, take risks, do things we have never experienced before? 

Basically do you think video games allow you to get that feeling of adventure, exploration, thrills, excitement that without them we would be drawn to more real life events?

Can it then be said that perhaps video games may be holding us back to a certain extent?

And at the same time perhaps they preserve us, by limiting the amount of risk we feel required to take on throughout our lives?

Obviously we still go outside, play in the sun, go on vacations, etc.  But is the urge to do these things lessened by our ability to live out fantasy based lives where what we consider in the "real world" to be highly risky, life threatening, stupid, foolish, and generally bad ideas to be common place, and fun?

What would you being doing right now if video games never came to be?

I always wanted to be a scientist growing up, has my video gaming habit(combined with general laziness) played a role in me never achieving this goal?

What do you guys think?  Does video gaming have a negative or positive affect on your life as a whole?

How has it helped you?  How has it hindered you?

I'll start:

-I should be working right now, I am getting paid, and yet here I am spamming the blogs and getting nothing done at work. 

Is this a good or bad thing?  Depends if you ask me, or my boss, LOL.
