Never smoked anything, injected, or taken any drugs.I dont think i will like the feeling of "Not being in control"At least with Alcohol i know where i stand, well .. most of the time. >.>;;(I understand its a slight contradiction, but in essence, you never really know the "%" of what you would be taking, whereas Alcohol has a typical standard, dependant on what it is - therefore i know what im doing.)--Ethics wise, i wouldnt slay many wimen and children, steal someones car, U-turn it and then drive it down the pavement, slaying yet more people - only to ring my buddy to deliver me a tank, and proceed to get the army to chase me while i fire shell after shell into everything and everyone. (Saints Row.)Sorry, i just dont get how doing something in a game in any way relates to doing shit IRL.

Because if you do it virtualy or in person, in the end of the day you have to look yourself in the face in a mirror.

I can look at myself in the mirror, even if i just ran over 10248230 people in a tank.Fact is, i know i wouldnt do things IRL that i do in games.I'm never going to be able to dress up in a full Halo suit and go slaying aliens on a distant planet, but i get to experience that in a game - i hate halo, but tbh i wouldnt have known that if i had not experienced this myself.it doesnt exactly make my point valid, but it is still a point.

That's a reason I don't like realistic games. I always saw video games as a way to escape our reality and enter an alternate one.

Like Tynisa said, I've played many shooting games, because I love them...the reason why I love shooting games is because I have great respect for people who are in the military. I guess I play those type of games because I know that's the only way I could experience and get a feel for what they do.Also like Tynisa said I can do a bunch of stuff in a game and look at myself in the mirror because I know I would never commit something like that ever in real life unless I'm force to do so.... (i.e. WW3?)
