No, not really. Games stimulate what we aren't allowed to do in modern times. Games are a good stress-relief tool. Let's say you come home from work, and your boss was a total jerk today. You have many options, but if you actually end up shooting your boss rather than shooting an employer while playing GTA, you're in massive trouble. However, this isn't the only use for games. If your life is dull and you crave something more, try playing fantasy or adventure genres. If you're a "slow-goer", try games like RPG's that have a slow, turn-based system. Games also move art in different styles and animations. I hope to be a manga-ka, but I also hope to become the artist for at least one game. Basically, games capture what reality cannot bring us, in safe, convenient console systems.
