No i use video games like this to get out my crazy side. Other games to escape for reality to be in my on kinda sandbox that i own. Very personal sandbox, but if i want i can have a friend tag along. Some other games for me to let friends come over to play. i.e. Battlefield, your in a jet bombing and having a good time. But out of no where an enemy jet shoots you down, you bail and snipe the enmey out of his jet, you dive down you enter his jet while in midair and you take off in it, and say get owned scrub. Wonderful feeling. COD: Oh no your the last man standing, you throwing knife the guard, while the other has gone to take the killed guard's place, you sneak by it and ninja defuse, and your allies scream with cheer, you know then it was a successful mission!
