Windows 10 Review for Dummies
By Ivory_Soul

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Niko Bellic... you're my only friend.
Posted on Monday, May 17 2010 @ 22:50:21 PST

Sometimes... I'm driving down the street and I wonder what it would be like to plow into a sidewalk full of pedestrians and children.  I also, wonder what I would be like to take a helicopter to the top of a skyscraper and just start picking off people indiscriminately... These wonders bring me back down to reality when you think about all the carnage created - not to mention the damage done to the city and the trauma to family and friends. So - videogames have become my medium, the focal point in which I channel these thoughts.  Bas Rutten said it best, "What good is virtual reality, if you can't maim people with a pencil."  So, what separates me from Colin Ferguson (the convict not the actor)... Common Sense.?

Ok, so that example is a little overboard, but think about it - how many cool things have you done in a "realistic" video game (physics engine) and wondered how "Real" it would be compared to the game.   I for one feel a lot more ready for the Zombie Apocolypse or Post-Apocolyptic U.S. thanks to Fallout 3 and Bioshock.  

On a more serious note - I didn't know how to make an origami bird, until Heavy Rain.  I couldn't play the drums for the life of me, before Rock Band.  Tiger Woods golf has taken 5 strokes off of my game, and If it wasn't for the FIFA franchise the World Cup in South Africa wouldn't interest me at all (*silly american and his football). 

So I ask you GR, take a second to REALLY think about this - Can people learn how to shoot/kill more effectively because of a virtual simulation? The United States Army sure thinks so - http://videogames.yahoo.com/events/plugged-in/us-military-to-step-up-video-game-training/1393996
