Or It could be different Having a gun strapped to the box where you pressed the buttons at and if you choose wrong button, the gun will shoot you in the head.

Well yeah, that would be an entirely different game. Russian Roulette with three bullets.

Make it more interesting. I will kill any non family member personally if it means my own survival.

This reminds me a bit of the Prisoner's Dilemma: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prisoner%27s_dilemma
Both people can "win" if they trust one another, but will they choose to?
So far as my answer is concerned, well, let's just say I'm not an optimist.

If you haven't read it, the manga Liar Game covers these sorts of scenarios. I read it recently, and found it entertaining.

according to my teacher there is no such thing as altruism so 99.9% everyone is going to press the red button.

So ya I would probably press it too.

Blue Button.

The only reason to press the red button is if I think the other person would want to kill me. But why would he? He's a complete stranger.

Take an similar situation. The villains put a gun in your hand. They lift your hand with the gun up to a stranger's head. And do the same thing with the stranger.

You're both faced with the same situation. You can either shoot other person, because you want to prevent him from shooting you first. Or you both just put the guns down. Much more logical.

So I choose to put my gun down.

Sounds like that B movie Would You Rather.

Red button of course. Being selfless gets you nothing and nowhere in these situations. Humans are the craziest and the most unstable when their life is on the line. Red button for sure

No, but I'd like to know...I assume you die of constipation.

While the second situation is the same in a very basic sense it is also very different in that with the current set up you don't see the other person. You can't get any sort of idea as to what they are thinking. You don't see their death and with it being a simple press of a button you don't even have to believe you killed anyone. That freedom will make people more willing to press the red button and with no sort of clue as to what the other person is thinking the temptation to hit the red button is stronger. It isn't pressing the red button because you want someone to die, it is pressing it so that you guarantee you live. All it takes for you to be on the losing end is someone who thinks their life is more important than whoever is on the other side and for them to not be a risk taker. Then you die pressing a blue button and they go free.

Eh, I'm going to pull that trigger the second I get the chance. Seems like pure logic to me. Going beyond logic and into survival instinct really.
