How many are there in you? Whos hope and dreams do you incompass? Could you but see the eyes in your own, the minds in your mind, you would see how much we share."
so basically the way i took it is this:
-how many people share the same sights, thoughts,hopes, and dreams as you?
-instead of focusing on look or differences we should focus on what we have in common and we could grow to know one another for who we are and not focus on the negatives and see that not everything is about what you look like or what you have.

Great interpretation. I took from it that we are shaped by the people we encounter. That parents, teachers, siblings, friends, etc. leave impressions on us, and whether we realize it or not we adopt some of their qualities, hopes, etc. That they can live on through us, that we owe them a debt for influencing us, and we are obliged to carry on in their honor.

Well, thank you. I honestly am not that familiar with the context of the quote so that's just what came to my mind. I think these sorts of discussion invariably prove video games are indeed a form of art. How else can two people both reach valid, inspirational interpretations of the same scene....unless it be artistic?

I am not familiar with it either though i do believe it is fallout from the creature/graphic stand point. I would have to completely agree with that statement that video games are an art form but not only are they an art form but also a teaching tool that if the conscious mind does not catch hidden lessons hidden not only in the words/text spoken but in the actual game itself the sub-conscious itself will. Ultimately teaching the user/gamer lessons that would other wise be untaught. Though this can be used for alternative means for a negative purpose it is ultimately used to teach life lessons or even just a deeper understanding, an insight to recently unseen, etc. so many possibilities. I look at anime the same way. I am currently going to college to be a programmer and when i graduate the games i ultimately want to create will have hidden philosophies hidden in the game play and text. To me it is only second to actual first person experience when it comes to learning.

I agree with everything you said there as well, very wonderfully worded. I was actually discussing with a friend recently about life lessons learned from old NES-PSX games. Back when games would barely give you any clue as to what you needed to do, or had unforgiving difficulty, etc.
We were discussing how we felt it taught us both the importance of willpower and effort. That life isn't going to make it easy for you and to win you're going to have to work really really hard for it.
Which, as you said: nothing in the game said that to us, it's just the overall gameplay encouraged this mentality and eventually we just adopted it into our day-to-day lives.
I also agree that it is the most immersive form of art, due to the sheer immersion involved. A comic book, or anime can have profound impact on one's life (indeed has for me) though when you are the one making the choices and performing the actions. When victory relies on you....you inherently are more immersed in the experience. Thus your mind, subconsciously is going to be picking up on patterns, and lessons that you might miss in other forms of media.
Also, that's an awesome goal you have for yourself. I look forward to playing your games someday.
So, since we've got a conversation going, what types of games/anime do you tend to favor?

My apologies for the long wait, I only get on Fj at work and I have been swamped. Every time I have gotten on something usually comes up that I have to leave.
The amazing thing that is overlooked about video games is that it is not just a mental aid but a physical one. It can teach hand eye coordination among other things. Not only that but they are used to help people with disabilities and illness's ( but of course not everyone know of this). My freshman year of college two years ago I wrote a 5-10 page essay on how video games help society and through the research what i found truly amazed me. Of course i had to weed out the non-sense and find out what was fact but it is truly amazing the technological break through's that are happening in this day and age.
One of my favorite things that i know I have gotten from playing is my determination on so many different levels that is why i like to play video games on a higher difficulty (depending on the game of course) just so i can say i did it and usually through all the blood sweat and tears its worth it.....sometimes.
Thank you and I look forward to your feedback when i do make them so that i can make them that much better.
When it comes to types of games I am a pretty well rounded type. As a child i stuck with pokemon/Donkey kong/MArio etc. but those were all on my gameboy and nintendo. Then when i was around 12 ish i began to dab into computer games and fell in love with RTS type games and still to this day do. At the moment I have an obssesion with DA: Inquisition (honestly any free roam RPG) the reason is when i create the character the 2-3 hour process usually i create a whole back story for said character in my mind from birth to that specific time and i act upon how that character would act due to his past ( or maybe making up for past actions). I am also into FPS games I am a captian in SYN PRIDE 7 part of Xiled Gaming (currently on leave due to the fact that i got hit by a car and im currently in recovery.
How about yourself?

No worries, I know the feel. usually work is when I'm on FJ as well.
Awesome points, and agreed. I have a friend whom broke his arm, had complications with surgery and eventually developed RSD; in addition to crippling pain it also nearly paralyzed his hand. Physical therapy helped some, but not a great deal. Though, eventually he got into playing Halo multiplayer, at that time he could use his thumb and index finger I think, though after about 2-3ish years he pretty much regained full use of his hand...largely due to Halo. So, yeah video games can have hugely positive benefits on people's lives and health. Not sure if you check out Youtube a lot, though I find Boogie2988 has a lot of great commentary on this topic as he often discusses how important video games have been in his own life when it came to becoming more social and just finding a way to enjoy life.
That's really awesome you did a study on that, btw. Glad people are actively promoting the benefits of video games, it's a hobby I'm extremely passionate about. As odd as it may sound, I really wouldn't be who I am today without video games.
As for game types: I'm fond of those genres myself.
I've just recently gotten into RTS, have a friend that adores the genre and he got Rome for me on Steam, I can say it has won me over, it's a very fun genre.
My favorite though would be RPG. Just anything where I can sink countless hours in, strategize, and build up stats, etc. etc. I like that.
In particular I'm fond of either open world RPGs such as TES, and Inquisition, or of the more classic JRPGs such as Final Fantasy. Like you, when it comes to creating characters it's always a huge project for me. I enjoy taking the opportunity to think creatively and try to make a protagonist I'd like to see in a story. Though, sometimes I just feel the urge to create a cheese-obssessed Khajiit in TES whose only motivation in life is to acquire all the cheese. lol
FPS is a fun genre. I'm not big into online multiplayer so I usually don't play FPS a lot, though I greatly enjoy it.
