Astronauts made me want to be an astronaut when I was a kid.. but games don't give you those talents.. you have to learn them and dedicate yourself to that said desire which requires years.. nothing overnight.
I'm sorry but Grand Theft Auto doesn't promote any good morals..
I already stated once it does, twice if you take video games into account, thrice if I take Call of Duty 4 from which if I never played I would have never knew about Chernobyl, four times if I take Assassins Creed a lot about foreign history and I would have had no idea who was Machiavelli, La Volpe etc.
If you still fail to see my point, then you are just too narrow minded to see that video games do promote good morals.
Learning about history isn't morals, lol, learning about Chernobyl isn't morals, learning about Machiavelli, La Volpe, Da Vinci, isn't morals.. that's knowledge. I think you're the narrow minded one that doesn't even know what morals is.
Morals is learning to be a better person, judging fairly not solely on the cover of a book, etc.. or even having bad morals. Did Assassin's Creed make you want to shake someones hand or hold open the door for someone? I think not.. instead, I'm sure it made you go 'sweet, would be cool to dive off a f*cking building into a hay wagon' .. atleast that's what comes to mind when I play such games. No game teaches me morals, good or bad.
How did learning music from this generation inspire you to do something great? I'm still blind to just what the hell you're saying kid.
You're the one who's missing the point. First you said 'inspire' and then 'good morals'. So, I got confused. 'Inspire' and 'Morals' are two completely different meanings.
Why not? AC can inspire someone to do something great maybe not me, not you but someone in the world. If that guy has got an insane amount of interest in history he can become a historian. Warfare games like Call of Duty or Battlefield can inspire someone to go fight in the army. Maybe it sounds moronic to you but we are all not the same, we have different aspirations, there'll definitely be someone in the world who hopes to be in the army in the future.
And learning music didn't inspire me but it'd definitely inspire a lot of people who have talents in creating their own music. Take for example San Andreas, rap music it could inspire some wannabe real-life rapper. FIFA's got a great selection of soundtracks and that's another source of inspiration.
And if there is one game that inspired my knack for writing is GTA. The story of GTA is brilliantly written and it's persuaded me to write GTA fanfics and actually improved my writing. Believe it or not, after I wrote my first GTA fanfic, my writing improved drastically. I was able to create my own fictional universe in writing. I can show you proof if you want. Even David Cage, writer of the video game beyond: two souls talked about the game's story and that also inspired me.
I think it's pretty clear who is the narrow minded one now.
