3. Mostly some arcade games

I haven't played any shoot'em ups on PC or console except perhaps Doom a couple times back in the 90s.

I'm 31 years old and female. I was big into video games as a kid, although not the super violent kind. Have lost interest since then.

I played a few shoot'em up arcade games in passing back then. Haven't really played video games as an adult, although I did just so happen to go to Dave & Busters a few months ago. I did their "Power Hour" deal w/ some friends where you play unlimited shooting and racing games. Most of the racing games were filled so we did a lot of shooting ones. After playing a lot of the shooting games I did feel a little... uneasy. Not because it was super gory, but something felt a little off about it.

As far as you being peaceful and amicable, I don't doubt that. In my OP I said that most people who are into these games/movies don't seem very angry, which is what makes it more curious to me.

Maybe I should just defer to evolutionary psychology- males, fighting, natural selection.
