Do you think that games take peoples reality world and make it into a fantasy and unnatural world?

I think it depends upon the individual playing the game. Games can certainly lead to some users losing control over their lives, which is why I've subscribed to the idea of not playing any game except for minesweeper.

I think that it depends on the persons mental state. If you are a normal person playing a shooting game you wont just go out and shoot someone, if you have a mental problem and believe that games are realistic, then you might go out and do what is in the game.

Agreed. That's the sad thing about FPS Games, People may tend that it is real because the Graphics are so intense they look real.

In somewhat, yes. Games can be brainwashing our generations youth. I know a few people who play games and repeat them irl. It's not fun when you are listening to them blab about LoL or WoW, or even DotA.

Many people make the statement that serial killers have killed because of a video game. In my opinion, if you are a serial killer you have to want to kill someone be born with it. I am using serial killer as an example of a fantasy of a game. It's like anything, a video game may tip someone over the edge to becoming a serial killer, to believe the world is fantasy, but it will not create a serial killer. Some people are born being able to fantasize things. RPGs allow people to become completely endorsed into the character they are playing, but someone who is mentally stable when they start playing will be the same when they stop playing. Any visual or audio could make people fantasize, but i think videos games are fine. They help you relax, have fun, enjoy yourself, and maybe be someone else for a few hours. All these things are good for us. As long as someone can distinguish between real life and fantasy then it's all good.

Hope this is what you were asking ^^

It has many variables, but yes games are brainwashing, it justs depends the guy or kid who is playing them, also some games have subliminal messages that's a plus.
