The last time I got into a fist fight was in junior high and I didn’t like it at all. As I grew up I tried to avoid violence as much as possible, and it worked. I went to a small high school where fights were uncommon and attended a university where serious, physical altercations were also pretty rare. I never had to hit anyone and I never had to get hit. Just the same, the fortune of being able to live a peaceful kind of life — the sort of life that isn’t uncommon to many North Americans — wasn’t echoed in a lot of the videogames my friends and I played.
