Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 59 People

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
