could be getting a root bud
Wish it was a frequent hobby
moderation is key but it also seems like some people/partners just wanna take what you like away from you because they think it's childish! it's very much ignorance of the other partner for being superficial and not thinking of their happiness.
curse you sf4 for ps3. i could be renovating and cleaning my appartment instead im trying to go through the arcade menus trying to beat all the options so that i can unlock the hiden characters.
To all those in their 20's/teens don't think it'll wear off either - I'm sitting here and turning 35 this year and I game as much as I still can - when I was at school/high school it was hours in front of the Atari 2600, then onto 8-bit Atari computer later to an ST then an Amiga a short flirtation with a Sega Saturn and then to PC and tbh I really think there is not enough time to do everything you want to do in life.
In my opinion we spend too much time working rather than anything else.
I actually think that people should work 3 days and have 4 off and we get paid more for our time, that and more people should be employed so you would have no unemployed people - just imagine that world!!
What ISN'T a waste of time?????
If your bored at night and its too early for bed, gaming is never a waste of time.. as long as your having fun and its not pissing you off loosing in some online game.. lol
Whenever I start to feel like that though I go and do a workout in my home gym.
I am sorta bored of games, waiting for half life 2 episode 3 to come out. I really like that kind of FPS, that and a good god game. Not much of that about anymore, played Bioshock 2, but that didnt last for very long, and Mass Effect 2 is really not capturing my attention.
I have always played games, but never owned a PC capable of running them to their full potential, and now that I finally do, I have lost interest, which kinda sucks.
I find time goes so quickly when you are full on into it. Hours go by before you know it
It's not time wasted if you enjoyed wasting it, this goes for everything, even procrastination.
Otherwise life is inherently meaningless anywhere, but for our own sake we should do everything in moderation. So obviously if you are playing games all day long your organism is going to suffer and the physical aspect of reality will punish you. Quite simply the healthy brain requires exposure to a whole array of different stimuli and has to undergo certain emotional cycles.
I do, especially when I'm intentionally wasting some time. But then, if my intent was to waste the time, I've accomplished a task in doing so, thus was the time really wasted?
I get two jobs. Probably at the same firm and the same position.
If you're gaming in your own spare time, I don't see a problem, but some people have mentioned taking time off work to game? wtf??
About 6 or so months ago, I think I got over a lot of my gaming bug. Sure I still play, but not nearly as much. Definitely I'm spending more time going out and having fun with friends/randoms IRL. Jokingly I reckon my skill in ice skating has gone up one point this weekend.
Oh for the record I'm 24.
when i get home it's pretty much all i wanna do. there are just some games that really draw me in and it's all i look forward to after work and on weekends!
EDIT: Dating: uncontrollable, unpredictable, not fun. Gaming: Safe, controllable, fun!
No. If you are a gamer, you are a gamer. Don't guilt yourself over it.
You're doing it wrong.
It's only a waste of time if you think it is. Have some self control and live a balanced life... ie. don't spend all day playing games. It's all good then
don't date, don't care! see no need to be tied down.
At least i'm practicing my reflexes and strategy skillz
Yes! I thought it'd lead to this conclusion.
definitely. i barely ever play games now just because i know i could be improving myself financially, physically or socially. really, either of those 3 outgoes sitting alone on your PC leveling up so imaginary character that means absolute shit.
oh hey epiphany time, instead of making my character stronger, ill make myself stronger.. whooop
