First, allow me to say that I love reading books, so this might not be a problem at all. Still, sometimes I find the interactive nature of video games to be dangerously immersive. I've never been addicted to a game before, but I see its potential to do so. Let's use horror as an example. Stephen King's novels often get me hooked, but even though they usually contain horror elements, I never find myself chilled by those tales. I've also seen quite a few horror films, but none of them has ever really scared me. Now, I'm actually quite a scaredy cat, so this should be impossible. Video games on the other hand can really frighten me. The fact that you pick the decisions makes the experience so personal. When you feel in charge, that's when everything gets to you. I actually have an interest in game development, but my main goal will always be novel writing. This is something I often think about. It would be great to hear some other opinions on this. Thanks .
