"These video games -- gosh, they've gotten a lot more realistic over the years," says Fox 26's newscaster Ned Hibberd in the opening of a segment called Videogame Addiction on Houston's Fox station.
I think our brains know the difference between death and returning to a save point to start again.
is totally right. But if i hold a gun-like thing i can aim with my imaginary aiming cross. xd.
eh. i know the diff between some rumble and shrapnel in my neck.
Yes And real estate and monolopy are also the same thing to us. Where do these people come from?
YES......if you are brain damaged, maybe then. LOL this is funny i bet this "specialists" never played single video game.
it might put out the same brain waves and other physical responses but a sane person can tell a game form r/l so whats the point of this bs?
I guess I would make a crappy solider then... as the first thing I do with any game is try out the grenade jump ability
Man so now it means that i can really fly space ships / jet fighters, fire weapons like M16, Uzis, AK47s, G3s, Drive cars at 100+ mph on dirt tracks like the late colin Mcrae. I think i need to apply at NASA and send my CV with experience of playing Mass Effect, COD4, Ace Combat, Battlefield, PGR4 etc. I hope this specialist is on their selection committee.
I play video games a lot. I guess that makes me a total badass.
so if i play mario glaxay does that mean i can shoot star bits at gombas and fly from planet to planet? i've killed hundreds of zombies in res4 does that mean i can kill them in real life? if i can do hadouken in street fighter all i have to do in real life is just go down, down-forward, forward and punch that stupid specialist in the face, right? just because vin diesel credited his awesome skills to video games in xXx means we can all be badass like him? i bet you're gona say that cod4 was the armies way of training soldiers for the future. the day that real life combat and videe games are truly the same is the that day George Bush can win his war on terrorism by controlling the us army with a wii-mote in hand.
