Do You Play Violent Video Games?
I don’t play video games at all. I used to and played quite a few but the only games I bought myself were a couple of FIFA & NHL from EA Sports. I however used to install a lot of demo games from various cds that I would get from computer magazines like PC Today and others.
Among these games I would often pick the first person style shoot him up like games, Duke Nukem and Doom in particular. There were 2 or 3 more but at this point in time I cannot remember the names of these games which I haven’t played since 2003 (Wolfstein something?). Yes these were bloody games with lots of gore and violence but because of the level of graphics at the time it did not look realistic at all. It looked like a game.
I don’t play them anymore but I don’t find them to be very violent either but perhaps because they look very cartoonish at the time. I wonder how the graphics for the current versions would look. It would be interesting.
