If there's a god, damn it she won't mind.
If there's a god, baby she won't mind.
... What is this? 1995? Anybody who doesn't play any kind of video game (through mobile, console, pc etc) today is either too broke to afford them or senile. That anybody in politics still thinks going after video games is a "legitimate" issue is ridiculous. Social troglodytes, back in yer caves.

You saidSecondly is your rational that I play video games because I need to retreat into a fantasy world because I cannot handle the real world!!!! I play video games because the are fun FFS. Not because I am some dim witted uneducated sack of fat that cannot handle himself in the real world.You implied that anyone who wasn't a "hardcore gamer" had "their head stuck up their ass".If my MP Canidate was a hardcore gamer, I'd be much more likely to vote for them. Shows me that they just don't have their head stuck up their ass and know how to have fun. I'd be able to relate to show one like that much more.
This is why I made the claim that "gamers retreat into make-believe and fantasy".
You mentioned "hard core gamer", not just someone who just plays video games. I have my opinion of "hard core gamers", whom you describe as "some dim witted uneducated sack of fat that cannot handle himself in the real world". That might be a little harsh, but only just.I play video games because the are fun FFS. Not because I am some dim witted uneducated sack of fat that cannot handle himself in the real world.
But the point is that you have your opinion of non hard core players as those who have their heads stuck up their ass while I have my opinion of hard core gamers.
We are each entitled to our opinions.
The GOP did it wrong. They shouldn't have gotten on this guy's case for playing WoW....the GOP should have accused him of buying gold...
Also video games have nothing to do with work, I work 70 hours a week and I still play games (well only one game really), you can claim you know lazy gamers but I can claim to know people of any persuasion that makes my argument sound better, what you haven't provided is any sort of real rational reasoning as to why someone who would play video games is a weirdo or somehow less productive.
As far as to the last point enjoy your false dichotomies, makes life easy if you can put them in a nice little box and ignore them due to the label you created for them robbing them of credibility in your eyes.
Man of all the stupid things to attack your opponent on... gezz.

As to posting to this forum, yes, were I younger and had a different profession, gone a different path, I'd be laughing at folks who spend their time railing at one another online, telling them to "get a life". For the time of my life when I was young and working outdoors I didn't even own a TV.
But right this moment I am working (actively monitoring 13 servers) while posting here. So, no, not a whole lot more I could be doing at the moment.
What falls apart easily are the excuses. Why excuse the behavior if you don't feel it's out of hand?
And again for those commenting later in the thread - it wasn't about the video game per se but the time spent playing the game.
