10 Ways Video Game Worlds Are Nothing Like Reality

WC: We all enjoy playing games, whether it’s so that we can blow up helicopters and cars, save the universe from an alien invasion or just sit down and direct armies to unify feudal Japan. We don’t just enjoy playing these games because they’re fun, though, but because they’re a way to escape reality. You see we can’t actually pick up an RPG and take out 20 ultra-nationalist helicopters in real life, so why not escape to a video game world where we can do this without any consequences?

That being said, we still have games out there that mimic real life, whether it’s because we’re constructing a house for The Smiths in the leafy suburbs Hul–Simtopolis, or because we’re flying a passenger jet from New York to London. In this article I’ll be exploring some of the ways video game worlds are just completely and utterly different from real life. So without without ado. (Culture)
