Today I read an interesting article on Digg, in case you guys haven't read it yet, here is the link. If life were more like video games, written by Peter Mai.
Life is tough. During our journey through life we're constantly worrying about finances, the consequences to our actions, and the inevitability of death. If only we could take some of the features used in the world of video games and apply them to every day life--total control of all life's happenings? Hot avatar babes? Yes, please.
Now: If life were more like video games...
You'd be able to reload previous moments of your life
People make mistakes and bad decisions, it's an inevitable part of life. It is how we learn from these mistakes and move on that define our personalities. Some people become cynical when the world crashes down on them, whereas others become wiser. What doesn't kill you will only make you stronger, isn't that right? But in the world of video games, you can reload previous moments in your life in order to avoid any bad decision that you've made. Regret getting that B.A. in English? Simply reload your life back to your first year of college. If life had the ability to reload past save points, we wouldn't have to worry about bad decisions ever again. It would simply be a matter of trial-and-error
Female uniforms/armor would be more revealing
Practicality takes a back seat to sex appeal when it comes to female clothing and armor in video games. If reality followed a similar trend, we would see a lot more cleavage and shorter skirts in just about any female professional. Female police officers, lunch ladies, and janitors would all have to look uncomfortably sexy.
Your limbs would stick through wall
People wouldn't have genitals
You can prevent death by eating food off the floor
Everything would end in GAME OVER
