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?
