Solty Dog: If you belong to an online clan, guild, or gang, you are beyond help.
Masterstuff: Solty Dog: If you belong to an online clan, guild, or gang, you are beyond help.Says the TotalFarker.
Lumbar Puncture: I loved their signs of gaming addiction article. If you are so absorbed in a game that you lose your job, it's probably a sign of greater issues in your life than just video games. Instead of blaming the destination of why someone is seeking escapism, maybe ask what they're escaping from.
Heron: Solty Dog: If you belong to an online clan, guild, or gang, you are beyond help.Yeah. Humans building social groups around shared interests? That's really farked up man. Competitive game guilds are almost as bad as those weirdos that get together every week, hijack our cable, and televise their weird ball-handling tournaments. What is it they call themselves? Oh yeah; "sports teams". farking wierdos.
HST's Dead Carcass: Years ago I was super addicted to games, but it wasn't the games fault. Once I got help for my real issues, addictions to things like drugs, alcohol and games seemed to disappear.
HST's Dead Carcass: It's so much easier to be a somebody online than it is in real life. The rules, boundaries and such are already set in games, so you need to follow the logical course of gaining levels or specific skills in order to succeed. Making it that much more devious are 'achievements' in games. Lord knows once the levels run out, you need something to keep you plugging into your Skinner Box, so they throw these in there.Games are not the problem, it's the people that use them to compensate their lives from being useless. I play video games for entertainment, and make sure they don't interfere with real life. Years ago I was super addicted to games, but it wasn't the games fault. Once I got help for my real issues, addictions to things like drugs, alcohol and games seemed to disappear.
groppet: I think if you play 36 hours then stand up keel over and die you may have a problem.
degenerate-afro: Hold on a second. Some games are dangerous. Some are not.
