    It's a good means of separating out the weird or the childish from the normal. The opponents can capitalize on a huge generation gap (one that existed up to the early point of the last decade) and demonstrate that they "aren't ready" for grown-up activities like politics.

    Of all the people I know, work with, am friends with, am acquaintances with and the conversations we have, video games is never a topic.

    Again, I exist in the real world.

    I'd love it if it did.

    we really need a badass politics game.
    I'd play the crap out of it.. and it would free me from my Skyrim marathons

    oh yeah, I'm a gamer too.. i've been gaming since there was gaming (Pong)..and i'll probably keep playing until I die.( which after being around the earth for 6 decades, isn't too far off)

    video games are wasted on the young...and old codgers who don't game are probably the demographic who most needs the stress relief and fun that gaming provides.

    So video games are a weird or childish activity but teaching incredibly expensive horses to dance isn't? Personally, I can't think of many activities more ridiculous than trying to hit a small ball several hundred yards into a hole a few inches in diameter with a crooked stick...unless you count watching others do it as an activity.

    This was totally unwarranted, just because I enjoy "fantasy" worlds, I am somehow inferior to the likes of you that have to "retreat into make-believe and fantasy..." rhetoric that people are judged based on what form of entertainment they prefer.
    No **** eh?

    I hope Grant has never read a book or seen a movie.

    Only an idiot would have anything to do with fantasy worlds.

    But this is the thing with Grant and he also does this when he says vile things about muslims, he says detestable things and then when he's called out on his crap he runs away from his comments and tries to pretend they don't mean what they obviously do.
