    -Far Cry 4
    I don't like survival games really and I have a shitty relationship with Ubisoft but I do have interest
    -Shovel Knight
    As much I want to play the game I am no fan of 2D platforms
    -Dragon Age: Inquisition
    Can't stand EA but gave it a shot on PS3 didn't really get far but I can see why people like it.

  • Who?

    How dare you? You are a true casul.

  • It's about all games.
    I almost don't play games.
    Games with amazing plot and character like Telltale Games, LIS, To the Moon.
    Games only take your time and some of them even bring you depression.

  • You're not sounding edgy, it's something everyone goes through. When I first picked up video games, I had no friends, the times I did try to make friends failed miserably and ended with people bullying me and my dad and mom were never around. I was a very lonely 5 year old boy, and playing things like Final Fantasy X2 where I was a hero and I got to manage my own team with actual friends was a lot better than whatever the fuck the real world was offering me. Even games that are just as depressing as real life feel good because if you can get over that hurt that the game gives you then it's so rewarding.

    You're not edgy for what you said, you're more... relatable really.

    I don't. Cause they are the only thing that entertain me nowadays, while the "real world" offered me nothing but depression, misery, sadness etc. okay i should stop sounding edgy oops

  • Games only take your time...

    That's like saying any form of entertainment are a waste of time.

    some of them even bring you depression.

    Are you exaggerating? I felt sad at the end but not enough to make me have a mental disorder.

    You never HAVE to quit video games. Time sinks? Yeah. Most people do for at least a while in their lives. An hour here, an hour there. There's always casual or sports games. Time sinks have to wait for vacation.

  • I basically have, now that I think about it. There are a couple of franchises/developpers I still play, but overall not too much.

  • Speak for yourself.
    I saw a lot of comment.
    What a time now?
    People crying because virtual chars.
    Instead, to help those who suffer in real life, to do charity work and other useful things.
    This's so stupid.

  • No, it's mandatory. People are just too selfish and think only about themselves, but when something happens to them, they are asking for help, but do not get it. And how they can get it if you do not want to help?
    I want to spend time on the important things in this world, and not spend it for nothing on the game.
    Helping others brings true happiness, as opposed to video games. And I know what I'm doing the world a better and saving someone's life. It is indeed correct, Megami. Think about it.
    It's always YOUR choise.

    It's not part of the law, so it's not.

    That's not something you can control, really.

    That's your choice and not something you can force on other people. Good on you for doing good deeds, but I'll oppose on you stating that videogames are a waste of time -- subjectively speaking -- they aren't.
    Videogames have benefits and that's proven already.

    I know I'm right. It's enough for me.

    Correction: you know that you believe yourself to be right, and you might be in your own case, but I've seen far more good come out of games than you give credit for. If you find better outlets of experiencing art for yourself, more power to you, but shrugging off games as a waste of time entirely will cause you to overlook hidden treasures that only this art form can allow you to experience.

    Fair point, sir! It's really hard to enjoy something when you get distracted by the fan base surrounding it... and yeah, the console wars are a bit too much.

    I've been considering it, but it's not because of those reasons. It's the community. The video games community in general is toxic

  • Still games gives more bad.
    Just look at TWD-fans.

  • So you don't read books or watch TV either? Because honestly, that is as much of waste of a time as well. You can be real sad if one of your favourite characters die in your favourite book and the same thing on tv series and so forth.

    Yes, let's compare sadness over videogame characters to a chemical imbalance in someone's brain. I'm sure that is a good idea.

  • No, I do not watch TV. Books- not a waste of time.
    The bad and foolish books - a waste of time.
    I try to just read the good and wise. The Chronicles of Narnia, for example.

    Those would be people that already had... Problems.

    The videogame didn't cause that.

    Yes.

  • Uhhh, what!?

    Books (fiction) are a form of entertainment, and so are videogames.

    How are videogames a waste of time, but books aren't? That doesn't make sense.

    You could spend as much time reading a book as playing a videogame, and yet it's still a waste of time?

    I am not spending lavishly on games. I will only buy games that interests me. I haven't brought a game since Batman. But that will change when Christmas sales and TWD arrives on Steam. :)

    I don't think I will ever quit playing video games. It is one of my favorite activities. Playing games let my imaginations runs wilds. I love the immersion. The joy of the adventure and the memories I create from those games makes it meaningful to me.

    But of course, finding a balance between your other activities is important too. But don't dismiss gaming. If you feel this way, maybe you should take some time away from gaming, find other nice stuff to do and come back once you are ready. :)

  • Each book carries enough amount of truth, and fairly evil.
    Genre a fantasy also carries It. Such books, such as The Witcher. The main hero of the book speaks not very positive character.
    So I think it's right to read only good and useful books that they simply did not take away your time and have perfected you.

  • I do not believe a video game has the power to change you into a bad person, unless you are too young to be playing those games or you already have problems.
    And many video games have very positive messages. (such as TWD)

    Also, everything you just said can be applied to video games, and yet you still consider them a waste of time?
