You did not receive childish insults, you received accurate observations.
To answer your question, do people really enjoy killing in video games, or do they just have fun moving a mouse/joystick with a crosshair on the screen shooting pixelated people? I don't play CoD, I play sports games and the GTA series. It has nothing to do with the "killing" its just a fun game to be played to test your reflexes and patience. I have more fun in high-speed chases in GTA then I do shooting people.
A straight forward answer almost free of childish digs. Congratulations and thank you.
I don't think you are typical of gamers.
When I search for the best selling games for Xbox 360 or playstation 3 for this year or all time I never get more than 3 sports games in the top 10 and never higher than 6. All of the others are focused on killing. Except grand theft auto.
I would bet that hunters play more real sports than gamers play pretend ones. judging from sales, overwhelmingly Gamers prefer to pretend to kill.
Why do you think that is?
