To survive WW3 you'll probably need a few weeks worth of supplies, a rifle, and at least 500 rounds of ammo just survive the begining mang.

I only have half of a AR-15. I'm screwed!

I know I definitely matured a bit from playing CS:S lol. With dealing with all the company sponsorships and stuff.

And FPS games are said to increase your peripheral awareness and help hone your reaction times.

The study points to collaborative efforts in such games, like taking on the giant black dragon Onyxia in World of Warcraft (which used to require forty people, or something ridiculous).

I kinda wondered why i feel like im always way more aware of my surroundings than almost everyone i know..

I think this is cool though.. i love being in an awesome squad in BF2.. flanking the flags and killing like 16 guys with a 6 man squad is so sweet.. I feel like im actually doing something opposed to just sitting in front of the TV..

PC > TV

If they think WoW has an impressive economic system, they should take a look at EVE Online. There was even a scandal with administrators fixing prices/stealing money...just like in real life!

I believe all of this, but don't put it on a resumé quite yet.

I just started a trial like 3 days ago and I'm really enjoying it.

Besides skills, the economy in eve is just about everything.

Money gets you better ships which get you access to better areas to get MORE money.

The PVP is freakin' brutal. You can lose billions in minutes. So people lose vast amounts of $ and of course need to replace it.
