Sorry, I went a bit off topic there. Got excited talking games

Watch Dogs brings to light the growing mass surveillance state. I give Ubisoft a lot of credit for using the game medium as a way of also educating players about important world issues. It's almost as if each game is its own seminar on its relative topic. These are the types of games I prefer to support not just mindless Call of Duty shooters. I have grown out of overly violent games, especially ones that don't give you an option of how to play. If I can get through most of a game stealthily, I'm down for that.

I used to watch a bunch of action (violent) movies and shows also but have grown out of them too. I spent a lot of time realizing how much negative "entertainment" there is out there and I just couldn't stomach it anymore. I personally do NOT believe that violent games cause people to be violent but they definitely can stress a person out. And I know from personal experience what stress can do to your health and it's never a positive outcome.
