A Gamer's World: The Way Life SHOULD Be.

I love the idea of bringing gaming to real life. Xplay did something like that called "Real Cheats". For example, if you are so drunk you feel like you are going to throw up, throw your arms up twice, then to the left, down two times and then to the right and BAM! You are good to go for more shots. Though we know this wouldn't really work, it made for a great skit and is an AWESOME idea!

Well, there are more of these ideas coming out in commercials now. Xbox 360 has a great video on the web right now with people pointing their fingers at each other like a gun and blowing each other away. Not only is it just a really fun idea to run around with perfect strangers and play like that, its also an interesting commentary in violence in video games. It is SO obvious that these people are just playing a game and these people look rediculous and like they are having the time of their lives. ITS ALL PLAY and its all PRETEND! Just put them all in Counter Strike, or someother shooter game (DOD2 for the 360 in this case) and its the same idea. Its just. a. game.

Another commercial on the internet is for Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones where two kids are trying to figure out the controls of the game, but in a real world setting. I'm not gonna say any more, just watch the video. You're new mantra WILL be...xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, I promise you. (Watch out for the triangle though! Those are a BITCH!)
