    The N64 doesn’t have separate R and L buttons, or two sticks

    I have … on occasion, felt like throwing various gaming consoles and computers in the trash.

    Video Games addiction. Better than… Drugs, Cigarettes, (Over-Eating) Food Addiction, Alcohol or Gambling, just to name a few.

    Let’s see… I can get Drug Overdose and Die.

    Cigarettes… I’ll probably get Cancer and Die.

    Food Addiction means I’ll get FAT and must exercise like crazy to loss weight, worse-case maybe clogged Arteries and Die.

    Do Alcohol, get drunk with some chance of getting belligerent, hurting people’s feelings, arrested, some embarrassing moments or bad decisions under the influence, worse-case maybe Kill or get Killed by somebody I offended and Die.

    I will get broke real fast from Gambling and might go from Lying to Cheating/Stealing to borrowing from Loan Sharks and likely Die if I don’t pay the money back in time or fast enough.

    From Video Games, I can practice and get better Hand-Eye Coordination, learn to Prioritize/Manage my Resources/Time and Stimulate my Brain to Problem-Solve, thereby making better (+Moral) decisions even in real-life and be… Happy. With the right (made) Video Games… it has helped the elderly (even teens) in some forms of Therapy/Recovery like Fighting Depression, Alzheimer/Dementia/Memory-lost, ADHD, Relief Stress, Regain Cognitive Abilities, even Educates or fights Obesity. (Read the internet.)

    Now if anyone here wants to argue the old “Video Games make People Violent”… That has been debunked/disproved and is nothing more than a (weak) argument and scapegoat-tactic. Remember long-long ago BEFORE Video Games… People were already Violent, just read the History Books. Hitler, Genghis Khan, Al Capone, Jack-the-Ripper (just to name a few) killed a lot of people WITHOUT the influence of Video Games.

    So… Yeah! Video Games WINS, I’m Happy, I learn stuff, I’m less Stressed and the Best part… I DON’T DIE!!

    Roger did, which is a bit of an over-reaction to be perfectly honest.

    @Dr Dave

    I found the full quote from the TV-Series (Pilot Movie) “Kung-Fu”…

    “In the Shaolin temple there are three kinds of men: students, disciples and masters. Development of the mind can be achieved only when the body has been disciplined. To accomplish this, the ancients have taught us to imitate God’s creatures…. From the crane we learn grace and self-control. The snake teaches us suppleness and rhythmic endurance. The praying mantis teaches us speed and patience. And from the tiger we learn tenacity and power. And from the dragon we learn to ride the wind. All creatures, the low and the high, are one with nature. If we have the wisdom to learn, all may teach us their virtues. Between the fragile beauty of the praying mantis and the fire and passion of the winged dragon, there is no discord. Between the supple silence of the snake and the eagle’s claws, there is only harmony. As no two elements of nature are in conflict so when we perceive the ways of nature, we remove conflict within ourselves and discover a harmony of body and mind in accord with the flow of the universe. It may take half a lifetime to master one system.” -Master Kan

    Nice quote… I like it.

    Excellent post! You make a lot of very good points. I would like to add one. If one is disposed toward programming, poking around in the files of a game to find out how certain things work is good mental activity. And in some cases, Skyrim for instance, the game can be modded to your own preference, which is a highly satisfying and productive endeavor.
