The assumption that gaming is somehow less educational/social/healthy behaviour than, say, reading a book.

I saw 'PC gaming' mentioned as a category in a study about worrying teenage behaviours the other day. Other categorys were: Alcoholism, hard drug abuse, smoking, unprotected sex, and internet/social media addiction. The study showed a considerable regression in alcohol- and drugabuse as well as smoking in teens in favor of girls more heavily using social media and boys turning to PC gaming.

Now, my reaction to that would have been: while responsible use of social media is important and should be tought it is awesome that people would rather play games than take drugs. They thought the trend was worrying.

When people claim they could beat me on my "TV game thing"



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

My Asian parents have a funny tendency to call every Nintendo console a "Nintendo" and every Mario game as "You playing a Ma-lee-oh?..."



N64 is the greatest console of all time
JRPGs are all the same
"Console Exclusives" are exclusive to one console and PC
Sony is for dudebros
WRPGs have great stories in comparison to JRPGs
Nintendo has no potential and is dead
The NX/Scorpio will kill the competition
Nintendo/Sony/M$ is more consumer friendly than the competition

I'd say Peh but my peers would say Beh :P



Against "photo-realistic" games.
Games most certainly shouldn't abandon the animated/cartoon style. But they should not stuck in it either.
We need to changing, be different in order to progress and make gaming more variety.



If I see one more reporter say "Pokemons" I'm going to lose it.

Also, whenever it is stated that we only recently finally got good female characters my blood starts boiling. Revisionism always makes me steam.
