  • People typically imagine addcited, no-life, unhealthy people playing on it all day and night. Constant negative view, unhelped by the fact it is an entertainment not traditionally seen as social or useful. To be fair, unlike sport you don't seemingly gain much out of it. Sure, studies show it improves problem solving skills or reaction speed or something, but that doesn't mean it is the most efficient or favourable way of doing it.

    These things need time and better representation.

    For negative reaction just take in stride. Accept and move on. Gaming is hardly the first thing ever disliked by people who don't play.

    Also NONE of your friends play games? Seriously? :/

  • It isn't that I hate them, I've just never played one. I prefer documentaries and cooking shows because they're real.

    • Is it really possible to have a preference when you haven't even tried one of the options?

    • @airylnovatech I suppose. I have an interest in things that are real and I don't have an interest in video games but you're right, I can't compare the two.

  • I don't understand it either. I love video games!! My goal is to one day to teach my kids so we can play video games together as a family.

  • It’s not that they hate video games, they just hate that you’re wasting your life playing them.

    • How is it wasting my life?

    • Show All
    • *realize lol.

    • @airylnovatech lol. I dont want to argue anything, that’s all you. But you’re right. I didn’t fully answer the topic question. My bad. Here’s the answer.
      When you breathe in, or inhale, your diaphragm contracts (tightens) and moves downward. This increases the space in your chest cavity, into which your lungs expand. The intercostal muscles between your ribs also help enlarge the chest cavity. They contract to pull your rib cage both upward and outward when you inhale
      Better?
      My work here is done. Carry on gaming.

  • I loved video games as a kid, then it became really difficult to find a game that does something new or interesting. Lifeless worlds, restricted choices, simplistic systems...

    I guess I have moved on to the most complex game and I find many principles to win still hold true

  • Because they don't understand the joy behind it.
    Because they evolved and were born that way.

    And why did you use Leonidas from 300 as picture?

    • He's screaming because he screaming his battle cry because he's on the battlefield.

  • Why would you use a picture of a movie and not of a video game?

    • Coz it shows my anger

  • Elvis Presley once said, "People will think you're crazy about things they don't understand." Do what you will with that :) just don't put your whole life into video games... unless you can make money from it lol

  • Everything will change if you go out and seek people with similar interests than yours. You can try and introduce your whole family or only one member of it to Gaming. There are beautiful adventures like Broken Age which are to be played by to player. Look for cooperative non violent games like that one game about two brothers. in this one player is the blue brother and the other player is the red one. Through this you show them the beauty of imagination and dynamic story telling.

  • They're retarded. More than half of them bury their faces in their phones all day. Not a big difference from playing games. Bother entertainment in a sense.
