I am surprised that people who engage in the more prolonged terms of escapism rarely lean to more complex and realistic titles.

Nerds play embarrassing, cartoonish, escapist games about dragons and shit because they've lost their sense of shame (or never developed one in the first place) and revel in childish hedonism; mundies play simulation games and "realistic" FPSes, because you can still play them and consider yourself "not into that nerdy stuff."

Recently I've been playing civilization 4. I'm such a pussy, I can never bring myself to crush my enemies with war, but rather I'll undermine their culture and slowly but surely cause their population to rebel to my cause due to my MASSIVELY superior quality of life.

You should see the looks on people's faces when I try to explain them some of these 'hardcore realism' games I play And then they ask me if I play any 'normal' games
