Real life is not a game

There are a lot of games that simulate some aspects of life, nonetheless I believe that is impossible that these games could teach someone how to deal with real situations because there always are many things to consider, like the behavior of other persons, that are not considered while a person is playing a game. Also, when you are playing a game, you can be irresponsible because you know that will not be consequences of your acts, the worst thing that could happen to you is to lose. In real life, the consequences could be catastrophic.

In Real life there are a complex net of relationships, everybody in the world want to win, no matter if they hurt to someone else. There are many people who act in a strategic way to reach their objectives, and could develop a predator behavior just for overshadow other people. In this context, all the sense of fun, that is supposed to prevail in a game, is lost. In real life you have real struggles and is more necessary evaluate the moves of other people.

About the consequences of your actions, I think that in a game you can easily do irresponsible moves just for fun. In real life all your actions will have real consequences. For example, in the game of Monopoly, you can spend a lot of money and debt yourself in a stratospheric way, you known that you could recovery in the next round, in real life there is no next round, you have to pay your debts or been punish for your irresponsibility.
