LOL @ this thread....

If you aren't playing video games what are you doing? I seen a few people post in here that they've cut back on gaming and found they like other hobbies...but they are still hobbies that you would normally do alone. So you are not gaining any social interaction from it. You are just spending more moeny for another expensive hobby.

If its day light...I am ussually out side, spending time with my family, house/yard work, bike riding...all that good crap. But what about after dark? Or on cold winter days or unbarable hot summer days? I really didn't start "seriously" playing computer games till the invention of the reality TV show. By all that is holy...television has gotten so bad and so filled with game shows that I can't stand it. The History channel and TLC are the only small beacons of light in the dark TV world. So when my wife turns on the TV...my computer is POSTing at the same time.

Grow up...you said your 15 so that make things alot different for you. The first game I ever played was when I was 19...I was in South Korea and board out of my mind on Camp Pusan. The Playstation 1 just had come out and I bought one in Hong Kong for $42.

If I was a kid/young adult I would take little interest in gaming and go do all the stuff that you can only do at that age. When I was that age it was rodeo, horses, and farm work and I loved it.

Once you grow up a bit you start to realize how nice it it is to do nothing but play a game...you also start to realize your body can't do stuff like it used to. No way in hell would I get on a bull now days...I wouldn't walk for a week and I am still in very decent shape and only 28 years old. A hundred years ago I would be on the verge of old age. The only thing keeping me in shpae is my martial arts. About the only thing that will cause me to turn down gaming. I strongly urge any one in their teens yet to pick up an Art. it will change your life for the better...even if its lame Tae Kwon Do or Karate...hell even Yoga is better than nothing.
