as Mkreku said .. a constant exposure to violence will cause immunity! and when the violence looks exactly like reality, maybe that limit will be reached even faster ..
My point exactly.
No- Nothing wrong with seeing whats not real
I dont agree with the last part. It should be real. A person gets cut, the person bleeds.
The violence is what people like (dont ask why) but arent allowed to, and dont like being done to them.
Would you buy a game with no violence, no complications, no problems?
The violence in games should be realistic. By that I mean that when you hit someone in game he gets a bruise. He doesnt just walk away with nothing at all, neither does tons of blood flow out of his cheek.
Obviously you don't know jack about real
violence. I recommend you ask a war vet about his experience if you can, or read stuff by people who have experienced violence first-hand, ex-mobsters or whatever. Perhaps then you will realize how violence changes people for the worse.
I don't have a problem with pixel blood and 2k poly models being slaughtered. However that's as close to the real thing as martial arts training. Real violence however is a horrible thing. Not quite the 'physical' component of it, but the emotional one. The feeling that you are causing suffering to another being is something your mind can't handle very well, and thus, rejects violently.
Even though a game is not real, it's only because the technology doesn't allow for total realism yet. When it does, your subconcious (sp?) won't be able to tell the difference between 'real' and fictional violence very well, even though you know it's not real. And then, you will be in trouble.
