Video Games - What a Waste Feb. 29th, 2012 @ 09:05 PM

Seriously, if you play video games, you have no life.

No ifs, ands, or buts about it.

You're spending hours of your life devoted to some trivialized task based solely on repetition and hollow achievements. You practice and practice, and you beat some game and then you'll have to do the same thing with the next title.

And it's even worse online. You always try to be good, but chances are you'll never be the best. You will ussually just be some slob trying to scrape by in a world where everyone is better than you.

It's hurdle after hurdle, and then eventually you become too old to continue and yo discard all you discs, cartridges, and consoles and move on.

What a waste.
...
...

Now, sports on the other hand... There's something worthwhile!


Talkers are doing something. Beauties are being something. Which isn't bad, I just I don't know what it is they're being. It's more fun to be with people who are doing things.

I bet you're one of those people who burn countless hours on facebook, but I digress...

Gaming, in some aspects, actually help to increase puzzle solving abilities and working together as a team. Sure, you can probably Nascar a level or two in Left 4 Dead, but for the most part, you're going to get smoked/pounced and fucked in the ass.
" Oh no! There's a witch! What should we do? " Situations like that help you to thik about pathways, pros, and cons of whatever your next few actions are. Do you crown that whore, or do you run half way around the level to stay safe?

Also, video games are way more interactive and better for you than TV. AND, videogames are a way to have fun, blow off steam, or just waste away the time.


Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.

Books are also a fucking waste.
Seriously, if you play read, you have no life.

No ifs, ands, or buts about it.

You're spending hours of your life devoted to some trivialized page based solely on repetition and meaningless words. You read and read, and you finish some book and then you'll have to do the same thing with the next title.

And it's even worse outside. You always try to learn good, but chances are you'll never be the best. You will ussssssssually just be some slob trying to scrape by in a world where everyone is better than you.

It's hurdle after hurdle, and then eventually you become too old to continue and yor discard all you books, novels, and biographies and move on.

What a waste.
...
...

Now, sports on the other hand... Are for fucking pathetic low-lifes.

Okay so the first post is troll with a valid point, and the second post is self righteous prick that tries to glorify said valid points.

What you dumb shits aren't getting is that video games, like anything else people can do in the whole fucking world, should be enjoyed in moderation. There are people who take games (and sports, and music, and other shit) way too seriously to the point where it's unhealthy. Of course, you can make very good livings off what I mentioned, though the door is only cracked for video games and that's mostly testing, which isn't very glamorous.

People that spend more than $1,000 on games a year probably should tone it down a bit and have higher aspirations than getting a platinum trophy or 1000G on a game.

Why your wrong :

1. Some video games are known to boost I.Q, reaction time, cognitive and critical thinking skills
2. There are video games based on sports which can also teach the fundamentals of that sport
3. Just because you suck at vidyah games doesn't mean everyone else does

troll or not i will argue this
what are sports vs video games
they are areas that different kind of people use to entertain them selves and fit into a society,
one keeps your health, one keeps your lauguage and other things advancing.. IF you do that sort of thing

By this logic, anything done for entertainment without a clear constructive purpose is a waste of time and means you have no life.

Isn't that obvious?
If you spend so much as a second not socializing with people whom you are physically in the same room with, then you are a socially awkward human being with no life and you probably have a neckbeard. No matter how much you contribute to society, if you're not around humans all the time, then you're not a human or some other backless nonsense.

It's not really about videogames. It's about how people use their free time and the values we put on certain activities versus others.

Gd forbid anything that even mentions video games slips outside the the VG forum.
