Games "For nearly thirty years we've been having this discussion, asking the question: do violent movies, music or video games make people violent? Well according to Brad Bushman and Craig Anderson of Iowa State University, yes. Based on the results of their research they concluded in 2001 that video games and violent media can make people aggressive and violent. Based upon their data and their conclusions, however, it's safe to say that photos of snakes, crispy bacon, or a particularly rigorous game of chess can also make people aggressive and violent." And politicians?

River Raid is a great game! But I'm more in to flight simulators. A few days ago I played F15 Strike Eagle 2 and Gunship 2000 on my Amiga 1200.

Apart from the flying and fighting/blowing up stuff I'm a nerdy geek so I enjoy all the instruments and HUD information and making choices based on fuel, weapons, enemies, etc... It's a real time puzzle with multiple good and bad solutions.

F-19 Stealth Fighter was an amazing game on the Commodore 64.

I'm not very fond of heights. I'm brave enough to get on a roller coaster, but I always regret doing this. Now I imagine taking a ride on an F16 (D model obviously) equals a roller coaster * 100.

The YouTube link has some very nice music and seems like a Mirage commercial.
