It would solve many problems. At least there are days when it feels like that, isn’t there? Perhaps that is one of the reasons why many roleplaying games feel so liberating: you can solve problems with an axe and not be thrown to jail. Or live with remorse the rest of your life. Most likely you will get a reward, possibly including half a kingdom and hand or some other body part of a royal person. Convenient!
It’s not a bad thing to at least get to emulate such solutions when in reality most of us have to daily just plaster a smile on our faces at people we fervently imagine getting a piece of axe-problemsolving instead. Logging into a virtual world where you can just run around, hack and slash and visibly defeat things is practically a form of therapy.
So truly: when things begin to annoy you the next time, try a game. After a few hours of killing virtual population in inventive ways and being praised for it, the edge of frustration is surely gone. Sometimes taking a bigger axe is the right choice: as long as it’s made of pixels.
