A real life is severe.

As technology is developing these days, we can enjoy more high-quality games, so it might be a wonderful thing. However, I disagree with the idea that playing games help us learn about life. In my opinion, games may make us enjoyable, but have nothing with teaching us life as real life is totally different from life in games. I have three detail reasons to support my opinion.

Firstly, it is clear that we cannot revive in a real world, unlike in the world of games. Even if your character, which exists as yourself in the game world, die, you can get back to life and live your life again. A real world is never such an easy place since your life goes to the end if you died, your life becomes miserable if you go bankrupt once.

Secondly, you cannot be so brave in a real world, even if you can challenge anything in the world of games. As I said, in the world of games, you may be able to challenge anything as you have unlimited lives in the world of games. You might attack to a bad monster to help someone and it may seem that you learn how important helping someone is from games. However, in the real world, most of us cannot be brave enough to attack criminals, because they are so dangerous that you might die.

Thirdly, we always have to encounter unexpectable things in a real world unlike in a world of a game. As the life of games is already programmed, you can come to learn what happens next in the world of games. However, in a real world, various factors, such as friends, a lover, teachers around you, influences your life.

What I want to emphasize is that the real world is never as easy place as the world of games to live, that is, the two situations are totally different, so it is impossible to learn life by playing games.
