it bums me out when people say this. video games stimulate the brain with strategy, puzzle solving, and reflexes. it might actually be more important to play games with aging as it's been shown to reduce early dementia.

a friend won't play video games despite enjoying them quite a bit, over some sort of discomfort with being judged for it, i guess. he's got a bit of brooklyn hipster in him. i guess he thinks people will think it's uncool?

it's weird to deny yourself enjoyment of an entire art form just because they were targeted toward kids in the 80s and early 90s. most games are aimed at adults these days. no more stigma. enjoy what you enjoy.

Letting anyone shame you into not enjoying ANYTHING, is bullshit man. Fuck them. Video Games were created by adults for adults, and only after the marketing craze for all the bullshit that came along with pac man did it get seen as purely a children's endeavor.

May as well tell people that they should be ashamed of watching movies, or TV shows, or opera, or looking at paintings, etc.

I still play them and enjoy them, i just think they are kind of idiotic at the same time. Video games are to free time as junk food is to meal times.

they’re no worse than sudoku or crossword puzzles or card games or darts/billiards/etc

they stimulate your nervous system with a variety of challenges that require a multitude of skills—from eye-hand coordination to resource management to memory to long-term planning to social communication to performing under pressure to imagination and creativity, and so on, depending on the game.

nothing junky about that if you know what you’re doing and why and what for and can enjoy it for what it is.

i read about a study that showed surgeons who play console games have greater eye-hand coordination and make fewer mistakes than their non-game playing colleagues. i don’t have the source off the top of my head but should be googable.

and then again—doing something constantly and feeling guilty about it is also its own kind of game!

if the games you play feel idiotic— find better games!

everything we do is games.

including mealtimes.

How will we know? Maybe they're amazing at them. The fact they're spending all their time indoors playing games means we'll never find out.

Most high school american football coaches use the Madden NFL video game to teach their players about formations, patterns, offensive and defensive strategy, etc., They are very useful.

Pilots, astronauts and the military all use video games (flight sims) to train their personnel and make it as realistic as possible, with amazing results.


Imagine all the asshole idiots who railed against the rise of the table-top board game in the early 1900's! I have read articles of people writing about how evil monopoly was or how these games cause dissension in the family and eroded the authority of parents. STUPID SHIT.

This is how I feel about SF3. I don't need any new flashy new fightman games because this one has all I need. Mind games and reactions heh

I'm wondering when WoW Classic will come out. I already think I know which class combo I'm going to make first (if anyone is wondering Night Elf Hunter).
