Those of you who have played shooting games for over a decade, considering them as a favorite genre; PRIOR to becoming a gamer, had you ever held a real firearm? (rifle, shotgun, handgun?) If your answer is honestly “No but [you] have used one sometime after getting into gaming”…personally would you say that games have had any effect on you or how you use/want to use A firearm? Do you feel encouraged at all to use guns because of gameplay, as if to re-enact the game OR would you agree that having never held a firearm until later perhaps better educated you, inadvertently through quality games.
- Can you tell the difference between fire modes? ([Full] Auto/ semi-auto / burst fire, without looking up references) Those who are newer than a decade to gaming pls answer honestly too; Do you know what “Machine Guns” or “Assault Rifles” are?
- Can you explain (even just brief) what the difference is between a Rifle and a handgun/pistol/revolver or Shotgun? Furthermore if you can, surely you can explain which is more for hunting and which is more for personal protection (and which is best for home too even, right?
- When you held a real gun for the first time, did you think at all that it would / wouldn’t be the same as in video games you play? (Pls honest only)
I’d really like to know what other gamers experience… as I believe gaming could be even more useful for education and lead to more real-world innovations thanks to video games than we comprehend at this time. Please if you can, be thorough and honest when answering… Thanks
