Videogames are largely about power fantasies that real life simply can’t provide. That’s why 98 percent of games (rough estimate) are centered around a man with a gun that knows no bounds to save the country that he loves. People want that, but can’t do it.
In that same vein, am I going to go out and drive a tractor? No, but with Farming Simulator 15, I get all the benefits with none of the elbow grease. Just me, a plow, and the sweat of my brow? Good lord. Bringing home a bountiful harvest? I’m trembling. Providing for my family? I AM ALL THAT IS MAN!
