  1. This is really cool. I guess this could be one of those counter-arguments to how video games can be used for good purpose. That's great, but I think most discourse is centered around video games created for the sake of commercial success and entertainment value. And if this game is convincing enough to have people absorbed into a world of icy-fun coolness, do violent video games do the same thing and absorb their users into a world of violence?
