Video Games vs. Real Life

Video Games vs. Real Life

It seems unfair to only have one life. We should at least have the option to earn a 1-up. Let’s see how else real life compares to video games

For example, the zombie apocalypse wouldn’t be nearly as fun irl.

vgl vgl1

I mean really, being tasked with keeping some kid alive is so much cooler in video games where you can focus on searching for loot instead of worrying about some needy little brat’s safety.

 vgl5

You always seem so cool when you only see things from your own perspective in games or in real life. But at least in video games, nobody judges you.

Take GTA, for instance. Wouldn’t it be nice if the entire world forgot everything bad you’d ever done once you went indoors?

 vgl8  

 And I’ve got to say that the ladies have some pretty low standards for what constitutes a great date…

 vgl9

Then there are those lax law enforcement standards.

 vgl14

Maybe they’re afraid of being accused of profiling.

Well, you know what they say…

vgl23

 But what about those virtual first world problems?

vgl11 vgl15

 But hey, at least fashion is valued over practicality.

 vgl6

Shoulder and outer thigh protection is, like, REALLY important.

Plus the guards let you get away with murder.

 vgl13

A lot.

 And unlike in real life, no matter how grave the situation there’s always plenty of time for leisure activities in video games.

vgl12

 vgl10

Plus, video games don’t have that sense of guilt for your mistakes.

vgl21

They keep trying to make video games more lifelike, but I say life should definitely be trying to be more like video games. Let’s see some more side-by side comparisons of the two.

But in some ways the two aren’t so different.

Either way, you have to respect your elders.

vgl7

And the general goals are the same:

Don’t Die.

vgl17

 Acquire Currency.

vgl18

 And don’t be afraid to try new things.

vgl19

 Old schoolers actually learned important life lessons from gaming.

vgl22

Video games: confirming the futility of life since my earliest memories. But at least they give us something to live for.

Bye Bye!

vgl20
