Video games let us live out insane situations that we'd never get to experience in real life, like hunting for lost treasures, surviving the zombie apocalypse, or hanging off the genitals of an enormous statue in Assassin's Creed Odyssey.
You can also give in to your darker impulses as well, whether by wrecking buildings, slaughtering innocent NPCs, or teabagging the last enemy of a squad you just wiped. You can even destroy the entire world too, if you like. Whatever takes your fancy.
Yes, if you've been carrying around some repressed rage all day and want to blow off some steam, you can always hop into a multiplayer lobby and spend the evening shooting up noobs, but nothing will make you feel as powerful as completely annihilating an entire planet, whether through the spread of a global disease, blasting off a bunch of missiles, or an enormous laser fired by a goat.
It could be a core part of the story or just a cool little side thing you can do, but regardless, these games will let you pull off various acts of global destruction.
