I was going to say that our back seat gaming habits are what’s keeping us from living the life we want. But that’s not the case. We’ve made a lot of progress since I started playing video games. We are more conscious of how we act, what we choose to do, and the consequences that we are willing to accept.
It is true that we are more aware of our actions and choices in video games. But it is also true that video games are the perfect medium for us to be consciously aware of our decisions. And because video games are a medium that lets you choose between the many possible outcomes of your actions, you are more aware of the real choices you’ve made. It is our conscious choices that we can change.
But most of the time when I play video games, I am fully aware of all the choices I make. I am aware of the choices made by other players, and I can make some pretty extreme ones. For instance, I am aware that I can choose to turn off the game at any time, or even just stop playing the game completely. It is this awareness that lets me make choices that are more extreme.
Video gaming is a great example of a game that doesn’t give the player much control. Most of the time my choices are guided by the choices of others. For instance, if I want to speed up or slow down the speed at which my character is moving, the choices of my friends may influence this decision. So the choices I make can be influenced by my friends. But most of the time these choices are taken for granted because they feel good.
In video games, the player always has the choice to choose between two things, and both are “right”. The choice to run faster is just as “right” as the choice to go slower. In fact, the two often seem to be the same choice. This is because the player can only choose the “right” option. Therefore, the player can only choose to run faster if they are in the “right” situation.
In real life, we make these choices for the same reason, so making choices that we would ordinarily make is still a choice. That’s why it’s important to make friends in real life, because of the power of choice. In video games, the player can choose to run faster, or go slower. In real life, it’s the other way around.
That said, there are some choices that are best made by someone who is in the right situation. If you are in your right situation, the player is in control. But if the player is in the wrong situation, and is too slow, the player is in control. If you are in the right situation, but slow, then the player is in complete control.
I would suggest that being in control and being in the right situation is the same thing. In reality that is the most frequent case, but in games and real life they are two different things. When you are in your right situation, you are in complete control. When you are in your wrong situation, you are in complete control.
This is a good rule of thumb in real life, but it’s a bad rule of thumb in video games. In real life we often can’t always tell when we are in our right situation, but we are in our right situation in video games.
This is especially true of back seat gaming, but it’s also true of other situations too. When you get into a car with your significant other, or when you are dating someone else, or when you are playing with someone else, you are essentially in your right situation. When you’re alone in your house, you are in your right situation. But when you’re at a friend’s house, or when you’re playing with someone else, you are in your wrong situation.
