Games are basically simulators today
I hear that a lot these days about games. So lets use dead space 2 as a reference. Sure, when we are exploring space in the future and the space
station malfunctions and you are the only mechanic sent to fix it while it's infested with alien zombies, this is a perfect "simulator" for that
series of events.
People like to moan about first person shooters being murder simulators. Well almost all of them are military, so get over that. As well, I'm not
exactly sure how clicking a mouse in a seated position in an airconditioned room is simulating loading, aiming, cocking, and firing a weapon.
I isn't. No one forces anyone to play these games. the problem comes with lazy parents that don't read the warnings and buy games for their teens
that aren't legally allowed to play them.
these are aimed alot at teens
you can say that, but the ratings disagree, they aren't made for teens, they are made for mature adults and are rated M, a teenager can not legally
purchase these games at a store. Online would require a credit card which is essentially an age check in itself.
They are just games people
