Lame. I mean if you're a "gamer" that is. Picking up the xbox or playstation controller occasionally doesn't mean anything. But people that get that hype about vidya, are lame.Leaving the gym last night I overheard one of the guys there talking about he couldnt wait until the new NBA 2K videogame came out with all the new players on their new teams. I looked back assuming he was likely in college, but could tell he was easily in his late 30s.
What's everyone's thoughts on playing video games over 30?
I have a love / hate relationship with games. After age 30 they should really be a low priority in your life, and you should have a strict budget on how much you spend on them. However, I see nothing wrong with using it as an occasional escape / relaxation/ unwind tool. If one were to compare games with movies, the average Hollywood or similar movie is far more destructive to the mind than most games. I can't even make it through 10 minutes of most modern movies. They are pure filth. Games at least have more options and have not (yet) degraded to that level as a whole, though there are certainly very degenerate games out there.
