For years the only way you might LEGALLY get to shoot someone was to either join the military, or the police. (now there’s probably other ways to do this but I just can’t be fucked to find them)
Today though with computer games we can happily pop heads all day. And with graphics cards, processors, and computer technology getting more powerful by the day, these games are becoming more immerse, and more realistic looking. They are however in no way realistic.
In some games we’ve got bad guys with more intel and armament than the rest of the worlds armed forces put together. Guns that lock on with a pull of the trigger. The only recoil you’ve got to worry about is a little vibration from the controller (you can even turn that off) and a certain other game where you restore your health after you’ve been attacked by zombies by drinking soft drinks etc etc. At the end of the day none of this matters because MOST of us buy these games for entertainment purposes not realism. We don’t really want to buy a game where we sit for hours behind a wall trying to pinpoint where that sniper is who’s shooting at us.
There is however a certain group of people out there who take this whole game playing a little too seriously. You know the types. The ones who moan about the sawn off shotgun and retro lancer in GOW3. The MW3 and BF3 fanboys who constantly argue all the time about why their game is better. The people who think that they’ll be something special in the zombie apocalypse because they can get multiple kills with a sniper rifle. Those that think because they’ve played through Dead Island (sadists) they’re prepared for whatever the zompocs throws at them.
The truth is though all this shits EASY. Lets see how they do when they’ve had no sleep for 48hrs, are hungry, cold, and dirty. They’re carrying a heavy pack, weapons, spare ammunition and most important their enemies are very much real, some ready to munch down on them, and others ready to use their arses as personal fun palaces.
My advice to you if you know someone like this is to tell them to wake up and join the rest of us in the real world. If however this doesn’t work. When the zeds show up keep well away from them. Because the first time they look down a gun sight and realize there’s no auto look on they’ll probably shit themselves, roll up into a ball, and cry for their MOMMY!
