What would games be like if the rules were a bit more strict? After all, doesn't it strike you as odd that they let you, the player, take every penalty kick, plan every attack, and fly every ship? Are you really that good at all of that? This fun little video from BBC Three imagines a scenario where skill is a requirement (language warning):
Maybe we would all take gaming a bit more seriously if we had to sit down for a bit when we fouled someone in FIFA, or had to go back to practice when off-beat in Guitar Hero.
The clip is from BBC comedy show Dawson Brothers, but if you want to watch the rest of the episode you have to live in the UK. Everyone else can peruse the BBC Comedy YouTube channel, which has plenty to choose from.
