    rofl @ you carrying over insults. how many times have you mentioned me saying aswell, oops as well. i know that's so critical to you correct spelling on rapmusic. you don't get sarcasm very well, being that was the purpose of me putting corrections in that thread. but good game, keep crying.

    not really, life is to, enjoy and if you enjoy games then you're doing fine. In moderation of course, as others have said. As far as the money goes, I download.

    No. I've always played them in moderation. The only time I played them too much was when Smackdown first came out. I spent months playing them games and skipped school shit loads.

    But even at the peak of playing them I only spend about 20 hours a week playing them. The only thing I'd be doing instead of that would probably be playing football in the yard or wacking off because I only play them when Im home from college or work and can't be asked to go out or have anyone round.

    If you gotta pick up your daughter from school but you're dick-deep in pussy and arrive 15 minutes late you still wasted that time, while enjoying yourself.

    That's like a metaphor for life passing you by while you play video games lol

    I've thought about this before. I received a nintendo when I was 5, SNES when I was 10, and N64 when I was 14. So basically I've been gaming the majority of my life.

    Despite that fact, I began reading novels when I was 7, I was in Gifted and Talented, was always an A student, NHS and all that good ish, and scored a 1490 in my SAT's.

    Now how much more of a bad ass could have I been if I hadn't wiled away the hours playing video games (I probably would have been taller since I would have gotten more sleep...).

    But, I kinda feel that the types of games I played have influenced me in some positive ways lol. I always played RPG's from Dragon Warrior to Final Fantasy - with puzzles to figure out and strategies to create. Heroes battling evil and overcoming near impossible odds.. It fed my imagination and probably affected my value system too heh.

    Also I'd play games like Sim City, or other games where you had to manage, and look at the big picture, like Romance of the Three Kingdoms - where you play a chinese emporer.

    Then again, much of those hours could have been spent on more productive / benefical activities.

    But then again, if I accomplish anything worthwhile in life - then all those hours were never wasted, because everything that happened in the past, would influence that act.


    Moderation in all things, even moderation.

    Ok... here we go... let's re-phrase the question cuz some fag on RM like usual has to bring up opinion/fact.

    In your opinion, guys, have you ever thought about how much of your life has been wasted playing video games?

    Just answer the fuckin question and shut the fuck up.

    i still say it was the MVP NCAA baseball that caused this..

    you should write a letter to EA and tell them how this has changed you and ruined your future gaming pleasures

    good thread..

    Ive kind of thought of that..but if you think of it as a "waste" then everything in life is a waste. thats the point of life.. to enjoy yourself.. how ever you do that. the same goes for money.. thats what you get money for.. whats the point of just saving and saving.. what if you die? so just enjoy your time.. whatever makes you happy.. if jacking off 8 hours a day makes u happy.. FUCK IT.. DO IT.

    Well I have a massive game collection, but I actually don't play much outside of WoW. I haven't turned on my xbox360 in a few weeks. I was in Florida on spring break for one of the weeks though. I know I've spent a lot of time on them in the past, but I find it more difficult to lately. I have a bunch of things going on, but still I'll keep buying them. I don't see the money as being wasted, just the time. Which is a good thing, if you don't have something better to do at the moment.

    its not wasting time and money if you dont think so. to me if you pay for cable with 50 or so channels and only watch 2 channels is a waste, having high speed internet could be a was of money to some and to others it is a must have for porn, downloads, and online game play. to some buying CDs is a was of money since they are mosly 1/2 ass songs of 2 or 3 good songs and you can hear on the radio and some pay $ 15 a month for radio.
    i dont have cable and dont buy CDs(the DSL internet is real fun)
