I mean, much of the reason why people play is to have a space which the players understand that there are no real-life consequences (exluding the lack of sleep and affection towards your lover).

Still, would you play a game that had outside effects, like being dumped into a water tank if you were defeated in a fighting game or slapped on the wrist with a ruler every time you did poorly in Brain Age? How far would you go? And which games would such an addition be cool?
