Today I’ve got this Issue on my Nationstates (nationstates.net)
Plug in and Play
Bored by their games of breeze block Tetris and live action Pong, former gamers have arrived in droves to protest against the ban on video games. The gamers, dressed as their favorite Maxemon characters, have asked that you bring back their controllers and consoles.
I’ve encountered with 4 choices
1. “Well, um… you see here, this research shows that video games improve hand-eye coordination, decision-making skills, and encourage creativity and problem solving,” mumbles the meek, bespectacled, and incredibly uncharismatic Athena Nxumalo, shuffling some papers on your desk awkwardly. “I mean, yeah, the games can be addicting and maybe some people were copying what they were doing in the games in real life. You still shouldn’t punish everyone just because some noobs can’t tell the difference between fiction and reality.”
2. “Our children have never been healthier!” joyously exclaims your Minister For Youth And Families, pushing aside disgruntled teens. “Children are actually bothering to learn about their world and getting fresh air and exercise. The problem isn’t that they haven’t got their digital toys. The problem is that you haven’t given them anything to replace it with. Fund more museums, parks, and libraries, and force these tykes to make use of them. The next generation will be better than ever! Sure, it might cost a pretty penny, but it’s for the children.”
3. “For the children?” yells the stern 64-Star Commodore Engelbert Uhura, causing the younger children to run away in tears. “When I was a kid, nobody cared about what I wanted. I studied, exercised, and worked my behind off, as these punks should be doing now!” The Commodore glares at the remaining children, causing them to flee the room. “If our children had mandatory exercise or military school, then they won’t need video games. We’d turn these hooligans and nerds into model citizens in mere weeks!”
4. “Okay, maybe we shouldn’t go that far,” muses your cat-obsessed secretary who has pictures of her felines scattered all over your office. “Why not allow some games, but just not the violent ones? There’s nothing wrong with innocent games like Gumdrop Kart and Halo Kitten. Just allow games that any child can play without being scared or inclined to violence, and set up a council to rate the games. That way everyone is happy.”
5. Dismiss the issue
Option 2. sounds cool so I choose it.
The result saids ‘Children entertain themselves by throwing rocks through the windows of world-class museums.’
In result, my nation get a boost of this qualities.
