Well, like they said in the second article. Is Olympians addicted to their sport?

I mean really. I have been addicted to games, but its called self control. I had to tell myself. Im not gonna be a pro. I have to much to sacrifice in life to invest such dedication. So, ill do my second choice. Be an IT wiz, and play when i can.

It's like the "blame the devil's music" all over again in my opinion.
I bet more people have been negatively impacted or died from sports addiction throughout the time games have been around for, than as a result of gaming (adrenaline junkies who go to higher and higher extremes to satisfy their needs for a rush is just one example).
The key like it has been said a ton is moderation - almost anything in excess can be harmful. I'm not sure if the article conveniently left it out, correct me if i'm wrong, but I heard many members of professional starcraft teams take regular breaks to exercise.

I actually did a paper on this in college. It was based around a study done by PBS in favor that gaming has little to no effect on people turning "psycho". They found that the only time violent games affected a person negativity, was those who already had a predisposition to violent tendency's mixed with delusional mental states. It was funny cause the best source for video games not being the "devils tool" was a study done by PBS. lol

I had a son recently and just like I did he will grow up playing video games if he wishes to, but like others have said everything in moderation.

Same thing here. Everytime things get slow the first thing my 4 year old son says is, "Daddy, can i play angry birds on your phone?", or "Can i play ninja slice?". Sometimes its a yes and sometimes its a no. He doesnt need to be playing something all the time. Also, the second he shows he doesnt approve of my answer i crack down a little more.

Another thing. I dont understand whay these parents in these articles are "asking" their chirldren to stop playing.. If i say stop in my house you stop. End of discussion..

Lol right?! I wont be asking my son anything when I am laying down rules. I remember back when I was growing up I was raised with my grandma and when she said do something, I did it or she would beat my ass with a paddle. Now I see kids running around screaming and parents just say "hes being expressive". lmao

I got ripped off when I was growing up.


I thought "Cause I said so" was the definative "do what you're told before I smack you"

phone internet is going to have high latency, even if it's a high throughput connection.
