Joe Martino has a new post up at his personal webpage. Joe deals witha question he was asked in passing by another counselor. In this post, Joe deals with video games and their impact on marriages when people are out of balance in how they use them.
In his post, Joe says this:
I think it’s because of the story they get to get to tell in the video game. No one is fat in a video game. No one is slow in a video game. Everyone is fearsome and awesome and fantastic in a video game. ...
Video games give us a chance to tell stories that most of us will never attempt to tell in real life. Real stories involve risk and danger. Two things we have religiously and judiciously legislated out of our lives. Risk involves the potential for failure.
