I Hate Video Games

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 58 People

    Geez, What's With All The Hate??

    I personally enjoy video games. I grew up with them, but I'm not a huge gamer. I play them from time to time. I'm still very active and I enjoy all sorts of other activities. Video games nowadays are more like long interactive movies. Some games have complex story lines and...

    Omg it's like all the time he makes every

    excuse in the dam book. It's easier just to let him play. But it's very annoying especially cause we have three small children. Do gamers ever out grow this? Cause I forsee major problems ! I'm only one person.

    I have never played a video game in my life.

    Growing up, my two brothers always played video games all the time, and I never participated with them. My parents thought it was weird that I hated video games as a child. I was never interested in them; I just never understood what any one has gained from them. I have...

    Kids Shouldn't Play Violent Video Games

    Kids shouldn't play violent video games at all! If I had kids they would never play violent video games. The blood,gore,and the potty language are just so bad. The two game series kids shouldn't play are Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto. All the blood,gore,crime,stealing,and...

    I just, I don't, I can't believe I'm going to attempt to put into words how audaciously and obnoxiously hilarious the fact that this exists, yet alone that it promotes "intellectual debate" is. First of all, learn to spell if you're going to prattle on about how mindless...

    Don't Hate The Game, Don't Hate The Player, Hate The Behavior

    Don't hate video games, hate the lack of discipline in the individual. Not the individual, just the individual's lack of discipline, obsession, or lack of self control with petty things. Video games are the catalyst, but not the root of the problem. If you can't live with his...

    Maybe It's Because I Just Grew Up Without Them

    But I find them time wasting, unhealthy, and just plain annoying. I can't even watch people play them because the screen makes my head hurt. I have less trouble with computer games, though I still think people spend way to much time and money on these trivial methods of...

    How Devastating It Is When You've Wasted The Past......

    .....No lie. When I was younger I had a very strong computer game addiction. It lasted a long time too, about 13 years. I look back now and realise I wasn't a real person. I lived in a gaming world and not in the real world. I didn't have many friends, a social life, etc. I was...

    I am scared for humanity

    because of video games. So many of my friends waste their time becoming these 'warriors' on the game. I've done all kinds of martial arts, and continue to do so. It's so frustrating that my friends say they want to do some kind of martial arts, but when it comes down to it...
