Videogame Fantasy Reality

Post#1 by Bogomips » 15 Oct 2017, 15:07

Never been much of an advocate of video games, having seen how addictive they can become. Sort of different from flight simulation games etc. Even did suggest on some government forum that they be taxed just like cigarettes and alcochol as a source of revenue. Was aware of a health and social issue, but did not realise how bad until I got to meet a husband wife, both gamers with extremely powerful machines each. All their leisure time they spent in online gaming, he with his group of friends, she with her group, and their extreme obesity sort of confirming this. And this as it happened was not long before all those shootings began.

But this takes the cake: https://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-out ... ss-n736971
