I agree what the hell happened to sports, outdoors and cars
Exactly. Men have better stuff to do.
Thank you. a real man.
@Udhrhiddu he's pretty neat
You sir sound great
High five sis. These whiny excuses wanna be called men but want none of the responsibility

"... responsibilities as grown-ups". Like settling that divorce with the vindictive ex-wife? Slaving away in a coal mine at a job that is likely to shorten your lifespan by 20 years? Being stuck in traffic-jams for hours on end every day in the sweltering heat? Having children who not only do not appreciate your efforts to raise them, but who are outright rebellious and have the government on their side? Mortgages, rent and debt in general? Yeah thanks, but NO thanks! You can keep your "responsibilities", I would rather play a great (off-line) strategy game! :)
@Yaaten Most girls aren't vindictive or bitchy. Here's the thing, don't be stupid so that you won't choose a shitty bitchy girl for a wife. There's plenty of fine girls out there and they are mostly the majority."Slaving away in a coal mine at a job that is likely to shorten your lifespan by 20 years?"That's why we go to College so we will have financially secure healthy meaningful professional white collar jobs that is harmonious with our personal lives and leisure activities like being a doctor, a computer scientist, an engineer, etc. Menial workers are losers if they don't work hard to go to College. "Being stuck in traffic-jams for hours on end every day in the sweltering heat?"That's a very small problem to endure for a very meaningful life full of friends, families, a wife, and a meaningful professional white collar job.Also, most children aren't like that. Plus, the rebellious immature ones mostly mature and change once they reach early adulthood."Mortgages, rent and debt in general?"That's why we go to College and work hard to get professional meaningful white collar jobs. Our professional white collar jobs will pay off those mortgages, rents, and debts in return. Seriously, going to college is mostly and fundamentally the reason why we go to elementary and highschool. Why even go to elementary and highschool when you're just gonna end up as a menial worker?"Yeah thanks, but NO thanks! You can keep your "responsibilities", I would rather play a great (off-line) strategy game!"Let's see if you can still be happy in playing video games once you're in your 50s and above. Good luck on not feeling empty. Mostly, good luck on how you will feel about your whole existence in your death bed. Let's see if you can still put on a smile while playing video games on your death bed. Seriously man, try imagining those times. I dare you.
You seem to be under the impression that "going to college" is a sure, guaranteed way to avoid winding up working at McDonalds. Well, no, it isn't. I went to "college" (for five years), and it hasn't helped me at all. You also give me the impression you think that those engaged in manual labour are "losers". Well, they do the kind of work that simply has to be done, and there are very few who have what it takes to persist in those fields. I will readily admit I wouldn't want to do something dirty and dangerous, even if the pay was fantastic, so those who are both willing and able deserve our thanks and admiration, not scorn.
I'm big on actual sports and things not done with a screen. Anyone can sit on their ass
"Actual sports" you say. Like what? Besides, even if you think that playing computer games involves "sitting on one's ass", so what? Why do you care? Many jobs require one to "sit on one's ass" as well you know. Will you criticise those as well?
@Yaaten mma mainly about ten years
"Adult responsibilities". Like what? Slaving away at some highly dangerous and/or stressful job for most hours of the day, and just to "feed the family"? Ha! No thanks!
If you don't grasp the concept of adult responsibility your haven't grown up. You need to take care of anyone or anything your responsible for, it might be only yourself. But responsibilities is something you kind of gather in life. It can be a pet, a family, a job, a girlfriend, a friend, a car, a house you name it and there comes a certain maintenance tasks to them. Adult responsibility is to put these task above anything else. Which is why you usually want low maintenance variants of each kind you just need but don't really care about.
@Adam1978 Okay, well that clears things up a bit, although pets, a job, and a friend are all things children can have as well, so I wouldn't describe them as being "adult" responsibilities. They are just responsibilities full stop.
@Yaaten Doesn't necessarily have to be a dangerous job, but as an adult, if you have a job, you need to make sure you are able to get to said job on time, so you need to be able to know when to stop gaming for the night, so you are able to get up in the morning. You need to be able to remember to pay bills, keep your house/apartment/room somewhat clean, etc. Also, in general gaming shouldn't completely dominate your life, as this could be bad for your mental health. by the way this also applies to any female gamers, I don't want people to read this thinking I'm speaking about any of that 'gender-role' crap. I myself am a gamer, and even though I agree it can be fun to spend hours on end in a world much, much, better than the real one, there needs to be a balance.
* oops IN SUCH AN ADDICTIVE MANNER
I have a 67 year old friend who I can talk about games and stuff with (amongst other things of course), because he was always playing games with his son while he was growing up which is really cool.
@Matt57 There are plenty of older gamers out there. Although there are obviously a lot more younger ones. Kids growing up in the 80s were the first wave who actually grew up playing games from a young age. Those guys would mostly be in their 40s now.When computers came out in the mid 70s, a very small number of people like me started playing games on them. I think almost all gamers were adults then. Computers then were too complicated for kids to use easily. Plus the games were all text based, so you had to be old enough to read, write, spell, and have a reasonable vocabulary. You also had to take a lot of notes, draw complicated maps, etc. Young children would not have been able to do it.
That’s very true. I recently discovered ‘Wasteland’ which is the precursor to the Fallout franchise and is text-based.Although I like a good story more than fancy graphics, I think 8-bit side-scrollers are as old as I’m willing to go.I’ve also come across a few 50+ dudes who play War Thunder, a flight simulator war game.
@Matt57 I have Wasteland on a compilation CD of Interplay games. There are about 10 games on the CD. I've had it for years, but have never installed it or played any of them. Very likely it wouldn't run on my comp, not even with dosbox. GOG might have a version that will run on modern computers though.I didn't really play much in the early days. In the early 80s I started playing a little more. I played the old Sierra games like King's Quest. Later I played Quest for Glory which I suppose would be called an RPG now.I never got into the fast paced shooters and action games. I never did much "jumpy" games like Mario either. I played a little bit though. Like I played some of the old Apogee games like Crustal Caves which was a side scroller. Apogee was one of the most important and influential game companies, but I bet most people have never heard of them.
What does that have to do with anything? Some games force the protagonist for "special scenes" but mostly you don't see anything (depends on rating) but in most games it's optional. However, it's a video game... it's not a real woman
@I-C3_ME I meant chasing other women in real life... not part of the game !!!
sorry lady if growing up means one needs to give up things they enjoy then I guess im just never gonna grow up im gonna be the grandma/grandpas gamer friend
Grow up stay off social media it's for kids
And at a certain age it's time "grow up" and abandon Twitter, Fakebook, Instafake, and all those other "social" media sites, but of course we all know why people who use them aren't criticised for doing so, and that is because most of their users are female. The hypocrisy is astounding.
It really is yaaten
This is sooo true. My husband plays games and ignores me. It’s every day. Even when he is “with” me, he is on his phone. Our marriage is non existent and I’ve had to develop a complete life without him because of it.
Have you ever thought about playing with him? You may surprise yourself how fun it can be. Just ask him and google some party games, for example "a way out" is a prison escape game where you almost have to work together. Sounds perfect to spark up your marriage, no?
I dont own a xbox or anything... but I'll fuck my buddys son up on some Mario kart
I can agree with that
I don't have any of the things you list, but I still play computer games. Work hard? I would rather work smart. Future ambitions? Like what? Get married and having children? Screw that! :P A social life? What the hell for?
I mean you’re not wrong. I agree with your philosophy. I don’t think of marriage by a certain age. I’d rather stay at home playing a video game or reading a book than spending time with people who are either fake, envious, energy draining or all the above.
Yeah I meant daily
Even like an hour or less a day don't think I'd have that big of a problem with it.
Hour or more I would
Yeah, I think that's about where I draw the line. Same as watching that much TV a day.
so only one hour of gaming or tv🤔so what should you do then? after doing the chores laundry etc
@jspl90 If chores and sitting on your ass playing videogames is all you have in your life you are undatable. Which means it isn't my problem.
you are not answering me why is it so hard to answer a question😂 since you say only hour of tv or gaming according to you what is better use of time
lets hear what what you with your time
@jspl90 Just because you lack the cognitive faculties to comprehend my answer doesn’t mean I didn’t give one. If you are going to speak to me, learn how to keep up. But for the sake of my own amusement, and to prove a point here is a simplified breakdown of my typical week. I work graveyard shifts, including my commute I am away from home from 9-13 hours a day. When I get home from work I have a quick breakfast, then workout. The duration of said exercise depends on what I am doing that day, Wednesday mornings I go hiking, which takes 2-3 hours. On Mondays I work on my core, that takes 30 minutes. Some days I attend class via Zoom, some days I do not. I then sleep for 4-6 hours because that’s all the god damn time I get. When I get up, I do homework or study, then have diner and leave for work. On my days off from work I catch up on sleep as much as I am able, take care of errands, do projects around the apartment, and either run, or play a game of D&D online with my friends.
curious how you are so fast to insult my cognitive capability🤔regardless of my skill with perception/insight.so you never watch movies? those usually last more than an hourso your d&d sessions last only an hour? just because I enjoy playing games with friends more than an hour does not mean It is all I do.
@jspl90 You have already given me more than enough to make an assessment. I haven't sat down and watched a movie in months. And no, our games will typically go for around 4 hours. Once a week, which in case your mathematical abilities are just as poor as your literacy ones 4 is substantially less than 7.
so wanna tell me why you are so hostile and prone to demeaning people🤔
@jspl90 How else would I amuse myself while constantly being spoken to by people like you?
Yeah she was worried, she couldn't see the release of elder scrolls 6 so the developers put her voice in the game. You probably already know this but to anyone else reading.. "isn't that one of the most wholesome things you've heard?"
Totally agreed. I uninstall all my online multiplayer games at the start of each semester and occasionally play my offline games every now and then, typically to relax after taking an exam.
Yess lol fair enough
that's smart. keeping an eye on the boyfriend huh? hahaha 👍🏻
Word of advice, probably find a guy who doesn't play online multiplayers cause those can't be paused. Might help to know.
So it's all about you then. Why should he "play" with you? If the game is more interesting, he shouldn't.
