How Long Would You Last If Your Favorite Video Games Were Real?

No matter how realistic video games become there’s one element that will always set them apart from real life- the concept of extra lives.

In video games you can amass extra lives, come back to life and replay the same scene over and over again until you get it right, and survive a barrage of bullets, but in real life it takes only one bullet to kill.

Games that have tried to make character death permanent aren't very well received, because people play to escape reality and not to be reminded of how fragile our human bodies really are.

Julia Lepetit of Dorkly has kindly created this illustrated guide to how long the average human would last if video games were real, to warn us about the unique dangers found in each genre.
