An interesting question posed in the following article: http://realtruth.org/articles/346-vgaefr.html is “are videogames a paradise?”
This question interested me because most people know what the feelings associated with paradise are, but most do not have a clear picture that comes to mind when the word comes up; the feeling is much more understood than the concept itself.
What is paradise? Most people associate the feelings of relaxation and joy with the term, complete freedom from real world stresses. Most business sell the term with the image of a sandy beach and colorful cocktails, but it is really something that is different in the mind of each individual.
This article is interesting because it argues that videogames could be a sort of paradise for many people, creating the carefree, happy feelings that so many people associate with the term “paradise.”
Do you believe that videogames deserve to be considered a form of paradise, or are the two things completely independent of one another? What are your reasons for thinking so?
