you could say that with a lot of games like NBA, Madden, Tony Hawks Pro Skater, Call of Duty (why dont you join the military for the real thing)... a game is just for fun.
side note: i can play guitars drums and sing... and i still liked rock band because it let me connect and have fun with music with some of my friends who aren't as musically incline.
I can play guitar and drums in real life
Am a poor singer and can fiddle on a bass a bit
But I still loved playing the game cause it was a fun group activity
