To agree or disagree, that is the question.

I do think that games can help change the world. In a sense, it all just depends on how you look at it. Games in many ways help people to develop critical thinking and how to analyze situations. Yes, some games are violent, but we do live in a world where it is all about survival of the fittest. Not to say that we should have children learning how to shoot guns or anything, but the reality of the situation is that some kids are exposed to this violence regularly. I think we just need to reinforce the difference between a "game" and reality. The reason I feel this way about games, is that I think people often get too caught up in the hypothetical situations, and fail to acknowledge the reality of it. Like I mentioned in class, people are exposed to these things anyway, so why should we fight it?
