Filled With Lies, Addicting, and Degrades the Dignity of the Human Person
Imagine living in a perfect world where your choices did not have real consequences. You could do anything you wanted regardless of whether it was right and wrong. The dangers of putting this game in the hands of children, or anyone else really, is that it takes the balance out of media usage, it takes the truth out of reality, and acts as if the human person is just an object to be used for the sake of pleasure. I played this game when I was in high school thinking it would be fun, but after just a little time on it, I realized how many lies it contains. It acts as if you can have it all. You can have this life that you always wanted without real responsibilities. As humans, we all share similar hopes, fears, desires and joys. We are sensory creatures longing for the connection of another person. Games like this lie to the user, manipulates them to think that having a handsome partner, a lot of money and the choice to do whatever and whenever you want will make you happy. It can become addicting, making the user lose balance of media and reality in real life. The game presents people as objects of choice, letting the user choose to do certain things that involve risky behaviors just for the dramatic effect or for selfish desires. It is easy for lies like this to be woven into games so easily, especially this one. The reality is that truth exists. Good exists, and when people, especially children, virtually live in a game that pretends there is no consequences to poor decisions, people start to confuse what truth really is in reality.
When I played this game as a teenager, it was fun at first because I could do whatever I wanted. But I knew there was a problem the moment I choose I bad choice. It makes you want to do bad things and encourages you to continue doing that and go deeper. Games like this, that alter the view of reality, are dangerous especially for children.
