Are FPS Games Realistic?
When I type in “COD” on Google, the first thing that comes up is not a fish, but a game. This shows how much the gaming industry affects the world, but is it good to have FPS as a form of entertainment. COD is set in wars and allows users to play through the war with a storyline. It allows users to play online online against other players, where the aim is simply to kill each other. A few questions arise with this, what is the point, why would people sit in front of a screen shooting at people for fun and also, what is it like for real soldiers?
People will have fought in the wars and for them to look at the games made by people who have not even been to the warzone themselves, it must be a very hard concept to grasp. If you have fought in these wars and suffered then you are going to be very upset by these games and they are games that teenagers and older adults play for fun! This doesn’t seem right, yet they are played by hundreds of thousands of people. Why does this happen? Surely there must be something that stops the games imitating reality…The answer to this is no. These games try to be like the real thing but they fail miserably. There is no way that you can run into enemy fire and survive in real life….if you want to relax by shooting people, then buy COD. If you want a real experience, join the army.
