These rules force us to suppress our instincts to hunt and kill, etc. As such, we try to find other ways to vent these desires, whether it being smashing a car with a sledge hammer, playing a violent videogame, or drawing a picture of a mutilated puppy.
Heck, look at the game that brought us all together. It revolves around murdering thousands of people as fast as possible. Clearly the vast majority of our species craves violence on some sort of level.
I don't think people play FPS games to get their "fix" of violence. I reckon FPS games are popular simply due to their game mechanic.
I tried playing Pokémon, but it hurt to kill my brothers
fails like stinky turd on a platter
An interesting topic indeed.When I was younger I used to be very violent. I would get in trouble for being too violent and destructive from kindergarden (4 years old) all the way up to Grade six (10 years old i think?). I got suspended a few time for being a bit too rough, and things like that. One time I actually punched a kid a few times and my mom thought it was because of the games I was playing. She told me that it must've been the two new games I had. Timesplitters:FP and Medal of honor. I said it was Medal of Honor's fault and I never got to play it again, but I kept my precious Timesplitters. It wasn't until I went to middle school where I was now not as smart as those around me and was smaller than my peers that I realized I couldn't keep being violent and I started to think before doing. Funnily enough around this time I started to develop my self diagnosed depression.I still sometimes have the desire to destroy things, usually when I'm angry. I'm not angry often, but I won't bore you with the details. Point is, I do like destroying things sometimes, but I don't like hurting people. Physically, or verbally.
This is kind of how I am. I can be calm, and be nice (I'm almost always very nice), but other times, I can be hell.
Now for why I think people like violence and gore so much: If I had to guess, I'd say it revolves around how our society is structured. In nature, violence happens all the time whether it be from hunting for food or just a territorial dispute. In human society, random violence is generally not allowed.
EDIT: I would also like to add, without you all thinking of me as a creep, that I am a very violent person at times. I'm almost always calm, I can handle abuse from people very well and I tend to laugh things off, but whenever something happens to someone around me, even if I don't know them, I tend to snap. I see this as the afore mentioned 'Primal Instinct' to protect my close ones.
damn right, hate duke nukem forever it is horrifingly bad, but serious sam is EPIC!!!!!!
