Rushing home from school or work? Fingers itching for the trigger button? Can't wait to launch into Insurgency or Call of Duty Ghosts? GamePlayersReview investigate our need to pull the trigger.
Look no. I like shooters, but my finger is not itching to pull a trigger. I never feel that powerless at work. But if you are feeling angry or frustrated or small, it is probably better to play a FPS than to beat up your girl.
a good faping don't hurt either
Well if it does, better get help. Lol or you're doing it wrong. Lol Butters.
I break out when i fap. It aggrevates the skin
"a good faping don't hurt either" Clearly I have been doing it wrong...
these new generations seem to like to shoot up universities...as evident by this weeks worth of shootings alone..,
Because shootings has never exsisted before the 21st century of course.
Really? I thought I came home from a 10 hour shift... ate a McDonalds... and browsed the internet. Guess I thought wrong... The last time I actually played a shooter would probably be Ghosts... in december... for about an hour... then I got bored...
I guess the article is referring specifically to the people who do go home and play CoD. If so, it says a lot about the state of mind and frustration and aggression levels of the average CoD player.
I play COD and I'm not aggressive, big whoop, wanna fight about it /s
should try battlefield. Completely different and isn't about who get's to be the host...
Yes Battlefield is a lot better game
I've been playing DOTA 2...so....id say no.
Me too, that game is like crack.
I think this article had an idea but was poor at expressing it. Games can be very therapeutic and wonderful stress relievers. If your day has been hard, then coming home to take it out on a game is much better than taking it out on yourself or another person.
I would rather play a RPG
Team fortress 2 or left 4 dead relieves them stress. Both games just feel satisfying to win in.
i rather watch a show shooters put me more stressed actually
In the Netflix original series, House of cards, with Kevin Spacey, he plays Killzone after work! Awesome!
I've been playing a lot of Assassins creed 4 when i get home. Guess i want to hunt down and sink frigates and schooners.
Err... I don't. I usually make dinner, browse the web, maybe hit the gym, watch some Youtube subs and then I'll play something for an hour or two. And lately I've been playing Diablo 3, Torchlight 2 and Super Mario 3D World more than anything else. So I guess I want to be either a Monk or Mage who fights evil or an Italian plumber who turns into a cat for some reason. That doesn't sound like me, but I suppose this guy knows best, he has a clear grasp on pop-psychology after all...
No,I play Pokemon,Zelda or Disgaea. The last shooting game I played was Killzone and I only play that cuz it came free with my PS4.
I won't BS, I do it. I have a crappy manager, high school drop out stoners for co-workers, and often have to do everything (including their jobs) myself. I hate working with all of them, so instead of open firing on them, I put their face on a helghast soldier and do it on my PS4 lol It is a great stress reliever, doesn't matter the game, they do it. no point in denying it. Glad they do, or we might have a few more insane people in this world haha
Monster Hunter for me, nothing beats slaying beasts taller than The Rock's Ego. Can you smell what the Monster is cooking?
RIGHT HERE! I hunt after a long day!
I like playing shooters when i need some chaos and need a short amount of time filled. After work I play puzzles after being around idiots all day (reason why i don't play online unless in private chat with friends) and games like DMC HD or MGR:R or Bayonetta to relative stress (also Dynasty Warriors) oddly Demon/Dark souls plus other RPGs or other adventure/story driven game to relax and horror to get some thrills in. Something for everything :)
I play shooters cause i can jump in and jump out at a moments notice. If i had say 2 hours free time i'd rather play disgaea.
video games don't really relieve my stress if i'm angry mostly because i can't concentrate on games when i'm pissed there's something else that does relieve my stress when i'm angry though... and you know EXACTLY what i'm talking about here. don't pretend you don't because..you scumlord, you do
I don't play FPS games at all.
I'll play any game when I get back from work or finish studying. I do play CoD quite a lot, but I have also been playing Dead Rising 3 with plenty of humor, Mafia 2 with interesting gameplay or even some arcade games with no shooting whatsoever. I'm not the kind of person to go straight to a shooter if I am feeling s***. I don't have anger management problems, I wouldn't hurt a fly or act violently towards anyone. Stress is something that billions of people get over anything. Doing something to relieve stress is a part of life, some people drink, smoke, take drugs, go to the gym, play chess, watch TV, eat or just play games.
