Race and Video Game addictions

Unread post by johnnny » November 18th, 2006, 11:08 am

Before i start im not talking about the groups of people who play 4 player football, hockey and basketball together with these friends before they go to the club or on a sunday after noon, HOCKEY!!!! :D , you know have a few drinks and get some compotetion in 8) ---cause thats the way it should be, racing games too are cool (But you know all in moderation)

Im talking about those who play computer games when there not a work or sleep, for example that world of warcraft crap. Alot of everyone play the game but its mostly whites and asians who play it the most :?

Why is it that mostly whites and asians play, from what i noticed the ones who play alot end up dumbing themselves down, and enjoy missing out on the dynamics of outside activities and real social interactions, there becoming hermits

Like these people are becoming seriously addicted to the point there suiciding and so i dont rant on and on about these fools im going to say one thing. MAKE SOME REAL FRIENDS< AND GET A HOBBY, play chess read a book, smoke weed with your friends in a real life social setting

Is there like some fucking gene that triggers these addictions, cause im not feeling it when i played the game or i hear about it

Anyways whats your opinions?

I read in a newspaper, that recently a 24 year old Corean died in front of the Computer, cause he played 86 hours in a row without sleeping and eating. :shock:

Man dies after playing computer games non-stop

October 10 2002

Asians create video games and whites give it a test to see if it is decent or just plain out stupid that's how it is.

Then unplug your computer and throw it out the window. The internet is supposed to be for education and sometimes for entertainment, but not to base your life on it.

I know exactly what you mean. We used to do that always. Tekken, Dead or Alive, Soul Calibour, Pro Evolution Soccer or something like that.

The thing is I feel powerless in real life, I have almost no friend sor social life and depend on my mom for everything since I make such shit money. I also am depressed because I never had a girlfriend and going online to look at porn or chatrooms is my escape form this.

Ok, i feel you, but there are ways to change that. Change your attitude towards yourself. Get a better job etc. But the first thing to start with, is stop escaping, even though it might be hard in the beginning.
