Video games are designed to be an escape for us. A time for us to enjoy a digital experience that takes us away from all the trials and tribulations of daily life. A time when all the bull just drops away and we sink in to an electronic bliss with some snacks, a beverage or two, and engage our minds for hours upon hours on end. Video games were supposed to give us dreams as comic books are intended to do, in fact, one could make the claim that video games offer up the same euphoria and fantasies we find in comics, but just in digital form.
Doesn’t this topic outcome sound absolutely amazing? Wouldn’t this be a place, alongside movies, television, comics and more that we as humans would welcome? Where did things go wrong?
