Does violence in video games carry similar karmic energy to real world violence? The other day when I was playing Arma, when I shot a guy and saw him writhing on the ground due to some of the mods I have, I was hit by the sudden realization of how fucked up what I was doing was. I literally felt sick and like I had done something very wrong because I shot someone in a video game.

>>32943921>He'll. I had a psychological death in Rust from dying in game.Story?To an extent I think these "games" are like portals to other places.
>>32943872>Does violence in video games carry similar karmic energy to real world violence?No, but if you play to kill with an aggressive mindset, then it can lower the bar for your mind to re-enact those actions IRL if a right (or wrong) situation arisesPlaying for fun (strategy, teamwork, etc.) doesn't have that effect
no.becease its a computer game. its not even serious unlesit kills peoplein real life then the karmic stuff happens but, generally?no.BUT DOESN'T make you feel any better or good about it.but then again most people are too insenitive to understand why its wrong even daemons are too retarded to get it.
>>32943872God gets more triggered when I play farming simulators and city builders than he does when I play violent video games. "karma" just means things that God feels justified to intervene harmfully in my life for, and he feels more justified intervening harmfully in my life if I play farming simulators and city builders and simulation games in general like dwarf fortress than he does when I play violent games like counterstrike or planetside
>>32943872>I was hit by the sudden realization of how fucked up what I was doing was. I literally felt sickgoodyou should avoid unnecessary violencebut no its not as bad as real life
>>32943872Not directly, but indirectly yes, it doesIt basically desensitizes you and rewards the feeling of killing somebody in the most realistic way possible with today's graphics capabilitiesSo close with what it's like in real life, along with the fact you are killing people from a "distance" which even further dehumanizes you and the experience/thought of murdering somebody
>>32943872Think about it...Who is more likely to actually kill someone in real life, if given the chance?Somebody who has never played ultra-violent and realistic video games, where you are rewarded for murdering people.....or somebody who has, and for endless hours?Kind of a no brainer, right?
>>32944385Isn't it well known science that having an outlet for our violent tendencies in the form of entertainment is a large reason we have as stable a society as we do now?So the more eager to kill one will definitely be one who has not played videogames just by average.
>>32943872I hope so...
>>32944385The data literally shows the opposite of that.https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2021/11/211105084110.htm
>>32944395Fuck your data. Use your brain.
>>32944391Isn't it well known that mass-shootings and indiscriminate homicides have exponentially increased within the last decade?
>>32943872What mod was it?
>>32944408>feelings are more important than factsYou need to go back.
>>32943872I have felt this way more and more as I get older, makes me think about parents not wanting their kids playing violent games.I just feel bad for a lot of game characters living in hellish world's trying to survive, it gives me anxiety thinking about their lives and about killing enemies and trying to survive yourself. It's hard because sometimes I don't want to play anything with conflict yet conflict is what makes the gameplay.This usually only happens when I drink or smoke weed, started happening when I did shrooms almost 10 years ago and felt the reality of mortality. Everyone knows they will die, but to actually feel your mortality is something I realize many people don't go through until they're seniors if that
>>32944385right, yeah, you'd have to be a no-brainer to hold this position
>>32943872That's good. It means you're not desensitized completely. Mindset is important, but I simply cannot and will not play games with gratuitous violence for its own sake or play a role I disagree with - like being a criminal in GTA.
>>32943872No. Why?Because you never kill anyone. In a MP game, those you kill get respawned in the next match. In a SP game, those you kill get respawned next time you start a new game. They never actually meet their end, only a temporary suspension of activity. It's like being in Valhalla. Fight to the death every day, wake up in your bed and do it again the next day.Now stop being a pussy.
>>32944631Trust the science! So how many boosters you got? Enough to redeem a rewards card?
>>32944385okay, what ever you say average 40 year old housewife from the 90s who lives under a rock.
>>32943872They're NPC's they have no karmic energySame goes for the real life NPC's would be nothing wrong if you kill them in a non depraved way.The intention is what matters when it comes to NPC's
Lol that is bad, it is just video game, You shouldn't take it seriously
>>32944983the real NPC is you
>>32944412Uh yeh lots of people have guns and the explosion of information available to people has never been more profound.There are a lot of factors involved that lead to a school shooting and exactly one of them has ever had anything to do with videogames and it was Columbine and the game was fucking DoomVideogames as the motivating factor for a shooting was a sleazy angle used by christians to gain social credits and to stir up controversy in a world they are rapidly becoming irrelevant in and so I'm not surprised to find this sentiment here where many of these ultra faggots have gone to proselytize their fear mongering
>>32945124You're only triggered because you yourself are the NPCNo other explanation for caring about robots
>>32945358this anon is correct
