Think ill stick to reality. A lot healthier.

Sorry mate, but this is quite an ignorant statement. I used to play games heaps when I played professionally, but at the same time I went to gym (and still do) 6 times a week, played sport and ate healthy. Right now when I work full time behind a desk staring at a screen all day, it's actually more unhealthy than staring at a screen playing games professionally.. It's what you do outside of your activity (whether that's work or playing games professionally) that defines whether or not you're a healthy person, not just because you 'play games' lol..

Thankyou for missing the point. Entirely.

Some prefer living reality,not make believe.

A lot of the 1st worlds current malaise might well traced to how many are desensitised or confused about realities and proper social conventions as they arent paramount in gaming etc.

So ill stand by my view. Its not yours, that's fine.

Probably the most naive, uneducated and uninformed comments about gaming. I can completely understand how you can think this is and miss the point 'entirely' about what professional gaming is actually about.

In your mind it's basement dwelling, unsociable, apprehensive individuals, who can't hold a conversation or function when installed in a social environment. It's honestly the complete opposite. These guys/including myself in the past had to live in a house that was funded by sponsors and management, live with team mates, travel overseas competing for million dollar prize pools, conduct interviews for fans, sponsors, players, attend expos, play and be featured on live TV/broadcasts with over 20+ million tuning in, maintain a healthy and mental well-being lifestyle, constantly be on the move, learning, adapting and competing at a top level to justify high-paying player profile contracts within a massive cut-throat industry.

So yeah, I can see how you can miss the point entirely about gaming. But again, each to their own.

'bb', I'm outside this culture as well but I think you are probably making a very broad assumption here.

There will always be problems in the world where humans are involved, I don't think computer games will change this one way or another.

You have absolutely no idea, whatsoever, what you are talking about.

Better not read any fiction books then.

Escapist drivel, all of it. Completely made up and irrelevant to reality. I read 1984 once and after finishing became immediately confused as to why my bedroom lacked a large TV screen with Big Brother's face on it. Don't even get me started on when I finished A Midsummer Night's Dream - I lived in a constant state of paranoia, worrying that I might at any time be transformed by a fairy into a donkey.

Civilisation has been on a downward spiral since the Epic of Gilgamesh. Don't let the escapists tell you any different.

[censored] you all! 

 

Woops. Sorry.

Spending so much time on a, largely, anonymous internet football fan forum has left me desensitized and confused about realities and proper social conventions

Ironic.

 

Edit: Entertaining thread though. Would read again in order to escape my reality.

If, like me, you're over 30, the good news is you would qualify as a "senior" in this Counter-Strike tournament!

Let the good times roll!

I pwned Counter-Strike.

Give BB a break.

His point is that there is active first-person participation in our metaphysical reality and then the same through virtual re-creation. (Reading books or watching scripted TV is passive engagement in fantasy worlds). The latter will have an effect in altering human psychology - which is not in itself a judgement statement. BB prefers the former, and follows convention by terming this experience 'reality'. I probably feel the same for the most part, at least by choosing to alter my reality through my own 're-creations'.

...and now I'm too old and not Asian enough to make it in e-sports..
