Life As a Video Game: The Reality
Posted on Tuesday, August 10 2010 @ 13:43:39 Eastern

As I’m sitting here drinking a can of Mountain Dew, I begin to watch web videos about people showing how fictional qualities in a game would be like if it was in a real life situation. Mimicking mostly the movements and how hilarious it is to abruptly have an assault rifle in their hand, these web video makers don’t get the full detail on how life would be like if it were a video game.
 
Back in the days of the Atari 2600, people weren’t even beginning to think “Oh well, if a chicken is crossing the road to the other side…might as well make a video of an actual chicken crossing the road.” During this time period, it was only the beginning of the video game industry. There were no 3-Dimensional games to laugh at. Instead, you have a square with a little dot at the end shooting at another square with a dot at the end. Even though it looked cheesy, those squares with dot at the end were your tanks to use. Now, how in the world would people make web videos about this? Let’s jump to present day, shall we.
 
Nowadays, you can’t get away from video games; Most of the games out there are 3D, side-scrollers, or both. Most of the games people try to recreate a real life situation are usually from the Grand Theft Auto series. I can see why the GTA would be the best to comment on, but again they don’t know the negative and positive sides of video games in reality.
 
There are endless amounts of positives and negatives about life being a video game. It would be awesome to have lives. So, if you die you will be able to come back to life and start over again. Defining physics would be awesome too. Jumping way above the ground will be great for people trying to rescue each other. There are thousands of positive attributes to have if life were a video game. But, when there’s a positive, there’s always a negative.
 
Life is always going to have negative parts to it. No matter how hard you try to avoid a bad idea, there’s always another one blocking your path. There are endless terrible things to happen if life were a video game. Even though have many lives been a positive attribute, it would still suck balls if you would never actually die. Another terrible thing would be the fact having weapons of some sort coming out of no where. Destruction and madness would be a result of it all! Even some physics would suck. Say you were walking downstairs and all of the sudden you went through the roof!
 
So to clear things up, people making videos of life being a video game is retarded. No matter how much you try to be hilarious, you won’t be hilarious because there are so many factors to look at and yet going through all of them would take a great deal of time. So an easier way to say this, “If life were a video game,” everything would be a real piece of ****.
