    Have you changed your certain view of something or been inspired to do something because of a video game's influence?

    If so, what?

    I used to play a game that people from all over Europe were able to play, so you'd have English people, Spanish, French, Portugese, Swedish people etc. But it seemed to have a large amount of Dutch people and they were speaking it and it sounded cool so that's one of the reasons that learning how to speak Dutch is one of my goals for this year. :angelblush:

    I'm not sure if it was the game that triggered this fascination me or it just fit my personal "likes", but since I played the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games I developed a fascination in exploring desolate places, wondering around post-industrial ares and so on. I also begun to like ambient music (especially dark ambient) which is prevalent in the soundtrack of the game. I used to be a regular gamer, now rather casual (high school then uni keep me busy), but this series remain my favorite and I like to go back to them. I could say its a "big part of my life", but it hasn't really influenced any of my decisions or attitudes its just that it perfectly fits my sense of aesthetics (or made it shaped it...?).

    In terms of actions I have a huge dream to go for a trip to the Chernobyl area. I know that they are possible and I swear I will do it when I get my first job and put some money aside!

    No. It starts off as a little adventure you have when you're in year 5. Then it grows into something that keeps you in when everyone is out. It gets to the point where, you'd rather get them gainz than anything else.
    Runescape is more dangerous than crack

    That sums it up pretty well. The important thingis to quit as soon as it gets stale.

    Mirror's Edge influenced me to have an interest in/start parkour.
    me and my brother started our own parkour group but we didnt even know it was called parkour at the time and whenever we saw a wall or fence or something that you can like do a jump off or run across we'd be like "mirrors edge!" and just do parkour on it lmao we still do it in fact

    Heavy Rain on PS3. My favourite game. Such a thrilling, emotional rollercoaster.
    I stopped playing PS3 regularly about five years ago so it was the last game I was serious about.

    I became very interested in the complexity of crime and started reading more crime novels.
    It was a powerful story that made quite an impression on me.

    That is so cool :ahee:. So you do parkour then casually? If you live in London there's many parkour classes you can attend to, and they're amazing :love:
