ive just come to the conclusion that i like violent games. No, not just violent....sick twisted torturous holy ****ing **** blood, gore, and entrails violent
this being y games like the darkness and manhunt 2 r calling out my name, begging me to hurt the people they contain. i love horror movies, death metal, the idea of a zombie Apocalypse (it would be cool. am i right, or am i right?), the histories of serial killers, and imagining my cheeseburgers once being a living cow that was cut down during its prime
but this leads me to ask myself, have i ALWAYS been this way. or has my character been molded by the violent games i played throughout my whole life. i mean, some of my fondest childhood memories involved cerebral bores, the bfg 9000, and jill sandwiches (tasty, but maybe a little too much mayo).
id like to think that people like jack thompson are wrong about gaming having a negative influence, and i am sure they are....to a certain degree. i mean, im not killing people. hell, i even have friends and an active social life to boot (not to mention my all honors and ap classes). but i still cant help but look back over my life and think that i major part of WHO I AM (not just the sadistic part) stemmed from fictional video games. just look at my childhood "heroes" like mario, the doomguy, turok, james bond, etc.
ponder this, and let me know what u guys think in the comments section
