Played a fair few over the years, console, PC, handheld and otherwise.
As above the difference between between real life and virtual is too great, virtual doing less than real for me. Real also never particularly enthralled me, might be too young really as it was all over here probably by the late 70s -- saw a few in pubs and arcades over the years to come (and these things often still had Asteroids and Moon Lander style 80s arcade games in the late 90s and early 2000s) but they were rather rare even then. I can respect the repair and build scene as some of the stuff I have seen come out of there is top notch work I would not expect to see in many other repair fields, and their history with gambling in the US is fascinating, but as soon as that is done I am out of interest -- same thing I have with cars really.
Back on virtual then I never found an equivalent to something like the Skate games, gun based games or driving games where there is still something to sink my teeth into even if they bear little resemblance to the real deal (minor exception for hunting games -- those I just can't fathom the appeal of even if I am known to run around the woods on occasion in pursuit of meaty things to nibble).
One thing I do like though is when the virtual boards can do all manner of fun things like radically retooling the board, bonus levels, impossibilities and other things that at best would be hideously impractical to do on the real deal. From a programming perspective some of the devs also pull off some pretty impressive graphics and physics simulations.
