Which video game has challenged your perspective on the way you live your life and how?
If I must single out one game I must choose Bioshock(1-2). These games completly changed my perspective of Utopia. It is a perfect example to what happen when you try to build a homogeneous society. And While playing bioshock 2 you can collect some audiotapes listen what happened step by step while utopia turned into a dystopia. It can give you a few idea in what situations should governments intervene or not. It also make think about basic human psychology and parent-child reletionship. Also I must mention sometimes not the games but some musics can change how think. For example The Boneyard music from CoD:MW2 was magnificant like Temple of Light from Fable: The Lost Chapter. Most of the people ( and unfortunately some of the players) ignore music of games but they can be quite powerful, arguable perhaps as good as Mozart or Beethoven.

How do you feel about the responsibility of the government towards the young people (18-25) regarding the economic and financial crisis?
"If we are lost why don't you save us", sure this looks like a strong phrase. But i believe it is not just an economic crisis we have. It is also cultural crisis too. Not only youth of the world lost. Also children and adults have lost too. Peoples changed their priorites from ideals to money. Problem is simply that. We have forgetten that we created this system. And as we created we can change it too. This is economic crisis is showing us to this economic system is not a sustainable one. While i'm saying that i'm also saying communist economic model is not sustainable too. Because they both based on consumer society. Naturely economic crisis is unevidable for these models. At every economic crisis based on current economic dynamics some classes pay debts of others. So if we don't want to become lost generation we need to create a new system. We need to change our priorities. If we want to do that we need to be orginased and we need to act quickly. We created this and we can change it too.
