    I think this was a bit much in the case of this person who died.....most people aren't that bad....but it's sad how people would rather spend more time with a machine than with other human beings these days.

    Yes, that's why I don't play
    Well I do believe that it is because there is an addiction gene, & some people get addicted to anything.

    It takes a stupid person to die from playing a video game too long. -__-

    Those kind, of strategy games in the house. Something similar, i had heard for some people, who had played, the world of warcraft, in their house!
  • Squatch 2012/07/20 15:32:05

    The games are very addicitng. I love to play them infrequently, but time passes so quickly when I play them it makes me less productive. When my boys get older I will probably play more.

    I've found I have to limit myself a lot on video games, because if I let myself, I would get addicted, and play it all the time. As it is, the amount I play (which is very little, like once a week) gets me addicted to a minor degree.

    For some people it might be easier, true. But for a lot of people it isn't.

    I used to be into video games when I was like 12-16, but I really don't play them anymore. I have one of those Atari all in one game systems and I played Asteroids a couple days ago, but after 15 minutes or so, I was done. I don't like the modern game systems; too many buttons, and if I want mindless escape, I don't see how having to study a manual and using cheat codes is worth it. Too much work. I enjoy Crazy Taxi, but haven't played that in over a year. Funny, I've got three game systems (two given to me by my ex-boyfriend) but I hardly use them. My theory about people heavily into video games is they don't have much going on in their lives except WoW. They have dull lives, and the only thing they are good at is gaming. I think they are kind of boring. I expect the generation of young men 20-40 are going to be more like young boys. They won't achieve anything, won't fight for anything, won't work for anything because they are too busy playing games.
    And they wonder why they don't have girlfriends!

    Video games never held any interest for me. I don't really understand how this man died from playing the game. Lack of sleep, stress, lack of food or water?
  • AlexThe... joan.sl... 2012/07/20 13:52:47
    I don't get it either.

    That guy was such a doucebag, for what ever reason he played that long I don't know or care, but either way he deserved it.
  • Noobcake BeerJingle 2012/07/20 05:46:58
    Did you stop to consider that no person in their right mind would do this? It is almost certain that he suffered terribly from mental illness. He did not deserve death. YOU are the douchebag.

  • Noobcake BeerJingle 2012/07/20 06:19:49
    Stupid people don't stop eating for *40 hrs out of their own free will. People who are severely depressed or suffer acutely from some other mental illness do.

    Stupid people make ignorant assumptions about others as you do.

  • Noobcake BeerJingle 2012/07/20 07:55:31 (edited)
    You don't know what you're talking about. Intelligence has nothing to do with mental illness and it is obvious that he DID suffer from mental illness. No one FORGETS to eat for 40 hours.

    And I'm defending him because he should be pitied, not ridiculed by you and others.
  • BeerJingle Noobcake 2012/07/20 08:17:45
    Well I am going to base this off the words of a wise man:

    I am going to change it to suit: Fool -BeerJingle.
