Agreed, video games are just a meaningless distraction from real life.

I think if they really are "your life" then its time for some serious re-evaluation, they're not creative, they're not greatly social and they definately should not take priority over both of the aforementioned.

i disagree. they're art, just like books or movies. people work long hours to make them, and many have creative and appealing stories. they give friends something to talk about and a way to spend time together. i want to be a game designer when i finish college, thats what i want to do with my life. im sorry if anyone thinks thats a waste of time, but its my goal in life.

Come on guys,

at the end of the day everyone has their opinion and whether or not it´s a waste of time playing video games is relative, you could say the same about playing guitar... top games players can make a living just like a good guitar player. A waste of time would be doing nothing like watching TV constantly, games have some benefits i guess hand eye coordination, logic those kind of things... everything is ok in proportion... like owen says, it is a distraction from real life but sometimes that is what we games players want!!!! lol

Yes! You should all be learning foreign languages. Not only are they fun, if you can speak a couple languages, you are guaranteed to be making big money. My dad's friend only speaks English and Chinese and he works for Charbroil and had to go to China for 2 months on a business trip. He makes huge money and all he does is translate. If you can speak English, Spanish, Chinese, French, Russian, Arabic. Businesses DIE for you.

i heard that the 360 was released early because of their competition (sony PS3) and didn't get to finish it, as a result, thousands are failing.

I remember back in the days of playing Xbox (original).

First thing i had to deal with was the fact that a week after release in the UK- they lowered the price by £100.

We phoned support and were sent a variety of Xbox goodies that definitely broke the £100 mark....not so bad there.

A while later the hard disk failed- we sent it away, they returned a new one. Job done.

I've not had many problems with games, but then again gaming is not a passion of mine so i dont pursue it.

My little brother plays WOW for almost 10 hours a day and is suffering health and social problems because of it.

In my eyes gaming time is time better spent- but ofcourse everybody has diferent opinions and if everybody thought the same as me then there wouldnt be any consoles would there?

-----------------

One thing i do love reading is "corporation" talk....

theres a scene in the movie "Team America"...


"And the corporations just sit there, in their....uh...corporation buildings, doing um.....corporationy stuff, and they make loads of money and thats bad!"

Corporations start with one person.

i think playing games is not the same thing as with the guitar. When you're playing games u usually get hooked by this meaningless task of saving the queen or to kill the haunted beast in the woods. And the worst thing with games is that its so hard to find a balance - people think it more like a lifestyle than a hobby. Take World of Warcraft for example, when i look back at old times when i was a "gamer" i didn't realised how useless it was. Is it so glorious to lvl a cartoon character to 70 and get the mighty gear? What happens afterwards?
When it comes to guitar i think the biggest task there is to find yourself. To be happy and to succed in life. Something i think is hard to do with games. Sadly i dont think games is a piece of art cuz it doesnt free your mind - it does nearly the opposite. What is the great thing with the guitar is that even those who had the worst child hood can relate this to guitar and give the music its soul. And people will respect you for that - which others wouldnt if you just sat on a chair playing a stupid videogame 24/7.

But that is only my opinion - good luck

Yah, my little brother played games for that lengh of time each day, so with the support of my parents I wiped his hard-drive and installed Ubuntu linux, clamped it down so that he cant even install mini games or play games on the web - even playing them becomes a compulsion for him, so far he's tried to get past the system I've set twice just to install something sneakily but I've just made it impossible for him to change his system at all now. He totally hates me for it but he'll thank me in the long run. It's completely nuts when you find yourself sat at a screen for 10-12 hours a day, complete waste of a life.

While agree people do waste there lives at times, I strongly disagree video games are life wasters. Video Games are an art, People spend years drawing storyboards, designing characters, composing music, writing a story, Finding the right people to do voice acting, And it all turns out to be a masterful piece of art with amazing stories and well though out plots, Games are not simple "games" anymore.
