post #31 of 74
Oh noes, but I game for 8-12 hours a day during the summer, what does that mean?! I'm not crazy or violent or addicted, I just have nothing else to do!

Time to go kill people because I play video game. I think the people that make these reports are actually the ones that need help, they cannot tell the difference between fake and real.

hmm.. only 2 hours? you can't get much done in 2 hours... Like if you play any BF game thats like only 2 games if that .. depending how good each side is :/
I don't think playing video games changes my mood either.... and the only thing it does to my social life is to have corny sayings.... that you would hear from a video game...

One thing is for sure, playing video games stimulates the same area of the brain as snorting coke. So there, I am a crackhead (when I am not working, doing the yard, hiking, working on my cars, spending time with the family, walking the dog, or otherwise busy living).

But since I am antisocial to beging with, video games suit me well. So I do not suffer from a disorder, it is all well organized and I enjoy it a lot.
