    "The thing that video game characters do when they look badass and self-apply by MacGyver-ing a tourniquet from a torn shirt using their teeth and free limb, is... just not even a thing." Or, you know, it's this thing called a bandage, wrapped tightly to try and stop the bleeding.
  • Bloodstorm - September 4, 2014 4:37 a.m.

    Tourniquets cut off blood entirely (which no one in their right mind does anymore) while a tightly wrapped bandage serves on the purpose of allying pressure to the wound. What's horrible about this is, they never change it. They probably die of some nasty infection minutes after credit roll.

    people in bf ARE NOT dead they are just wounded

    yes, they are wounded, but a defibrilator gives a strong eletric shock that is used to start a heart that has stoped. a gunshot wound is (sorry for being captain obviously) coused by a bullet does not stop the heart. a defib would only make bad worse at this poin, and if the person is stil alive after being shot, you would probably just kill them with the defib.

    No it doesn't; it resets the heart's rhythm, as it says in the article.

    When you get shot the game should cut to 6 months later when you're still walking with a limp and the whole world has changed while you've been lying in a hospital bed. Now that would make interesting gameplay lol. I couldn't stop thinking of Far Cry 3. On the verge of death, bones broken, shot, stabbed and dying from concussions and internal bleeding? Stab yourself with a syringe filled with green leaves you found in the jungle. Good as new!!

    Thanks for the awesome top 7 GR nurse friend

    You've never fully recovered from a bruise? Hollander should have written this. He's a man. He can take a bruise and not be forever shattered as a human.

    I got scratched by a zombie and I sprayed first aid spray on it. It didn't go away, seem to be craving human flesh, need to see a doctor soon.

    Games also tell us we can use magic and fight non existence creatures too and that a ninja can dodge thousands of bullets being shot at them and be able to kill everyone with a blade.

    If you get injured, giving yourself some medicine does not instantaneously heal you.
  • Vonter - September 9, 2013 2:33 p.m.

    Retrogade amnesia could be a very sick gameplay mechanic. Like escaping an explosion and the very next scene it's the protagonist taking out the trash then cut to a bank robbery commited by the protagonist then cut to an army trench. It'll be like Conker's Bad Fur Day.
  • Vonter - September 9, 2013 2:34 p.m.

    Mean anterograde. Sorry. 8(
  • GR_ZachBetka - September 10, 2013 8:13 p.m.

    Yeah I totally agree! It would be like that movie Memento except in video game form, I actually think that would be awesome.
  • BladedFalcon - September 9, 2013 1:25 p.m.

    Very nice first top 7 Mr Betka! And heh, kinda timely too. Right now I've been playing Spec Ops: The Line, and while the story really is very impressive, it's kinda hilarious just how many falls, explosions and traumas the main character is able to survive and just shrug off. The cherry on top being that in order to revive an agonizing teammate, apparently just injecting adrenaline makes ALL the gunshots go away... Forever. Who knew???
  • JarkayColt - September 9, 2013 1:19 p.m.

    This was a pretty enlightening Top 7. Hooray for edutainment! For a start, I can honestly say that the consequences of possible internal bleeding during game events never crossed my mind. So often, the characters just shrug everything off. Heyyy! But you forgot the most obvious lie about staying alive! Death is just a minor inconvenience if you're the protagonist! XD Since we're all the protagonist of out own lives, there's nothing to worry about...right?
  • C.King - September 9, 2013 1:05 p.m.

    sleeping puts you in the absolute best health condition
  • JarkayColt - September 9, 2013 1:51 p.m.

    Haha, that's a good one; everybody knows that sleeping is good for your health, but I doubt it's going to help much if you've been near bludgeoned to death. Otherwise, hospitals wouldn't exist because everybody would be booking in at their local bed-and-breakfast to rest off their knifewounds. A freshly made bed and a complimentary glass of orange juice the next morning is a nice bonus as well.
  • C.King - September 9, 2013 3:47 p.m.

    what i think is especially funky about this is the term "death bed" loads of death but so few death beds
  • shawksta - September 9, 2013 12:02 p.m.
