Orlando Jimenez Posted over 1 year ago Debate: Video games are the drug of the century I believe that you are incorrect. Halo allows for a character customization for online purposes only and the only decisions you make in that game is who you are going to "kill". the game is based of a story and you are essentially "playing" the story. But if you want to look at RPG's (which I believe you should have mentioned) then yes you have to make decisions but its very different. RPG games such as Skyrim or World of Warcraft are video games that want you involved in the game. A game is nothing without a story and creators want people to become more involved in the game which is why it is an RPG. Also, in my opinion video games nothing like drugs. drugs and video games may have you "hooked" but the side effects are completely different. Unless your going to go 3 days without eating or sleeping video games are much more safer than drugs. And i'm pretty sure if you and your friends grab a bunch of guns and start playing real life modern warfare opposed to the video game version then there is a problem. Video games allow the imagination of killing something without actually killing it. In a way it relieves stress. Weather it be from playing a racing game to an RPG game to a FPS game. It is much safer than the real thing.
