First it was cartoons that corrupted, then it was the video movies, and now it is games?

100% BS.

When I was a young lad I wasn't sure that "EVIL" actually existed. Then I started noticing some facts about the JEW. Now we know:

There is only one evil entity in the world. It is the Jew.

What type of gaming are they talking about? If you are playing with friends online it's not much different than talking on the phone with them for a couple of hours every night. And they are trying to cooperate with each other to win which is much better than women on the phone talking about nothing except other people (It amazes me women can talk about people they don't even know for fucking hours).

Kids spend all day in school, plus homework...is that an addiction?

Linking games and violence? I'd have to see how many niggers in West Baltimore playing.

But, there is a connection between games and violence that resulted in over 4000 Americans deaths. Muslims playing Microsoft Flight Simulator back in the late 90's.

In what world is it normal for a grown man to other men on the phone for a couple of hours every night? You aren't cooperating toward a goal, you're playing a video game.

The tragedy is thAt the media prints whatever garbage they want and people think their religious leader made a command.

"Meat and dairy have cholesterol and it will kill you" made fat milk an absolute sin and you'd meet public condemnation equal to heresy if you were caught using full fat cream. EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE WRONG.

but,but, but, a study said so, and I have to be smart and follow studies, even though granpa lived to be 90 and he ate meat every day

All these studies have a crippling problem of being unreproducible, this is because they repeat the same study dozens of times until they get a single result that fits their ideas, and then parade it around like it's divine will, bring up any of the dozens of contrary studies and they'll just make excuses.

I must distingiush science and !!SCIENCE!!. Science is the cooperative system that provides testable knowlege and explanations of the universe. !!SCIENCE!! is the god that explains what and why something must be done according to its priests.

Conformation bias is what drives the whole "let's put our faith in !!SCIENCE!!". Climate change, heart disease, cancer and many other scary ends to justify what is kosher or halal for !!SCIENCE!!. Which is scary because the desired result some pychopath wants to promote social change (enact a tax or other burden, crimialize a way of thinking, restrict liberties, make anyone's lives that much more miserable so that they could be remebered, etc) could reward cash prizes, fame, and a book deal for being a priest and discovering the truth in !!SCIENCE!!. The misinformation triumvirate (media, industry, government) will provide temptation for any one with a doctrate to work for !!SCIENCE!! over science and get !!SCIENCE!! peered reviewed and published, and deny any outsider attempt to replicate the !!SCIENCE!! as an experimentation error by some smuck who never got a paper published in his life.

A famous priest for !!SCIENCE!! is Bill Nye. He makes !!SCIENCE!! hip by explaining how many genders exist without any practiable evidence. He expects you to take him at his word like the soy-slurping sap he thinks you are.

Passive smoking is my big bug bear. We were told that passive smoking was pretty much as bad as regular smoking, that it would cause all these ailments in "victims" of the smoke of others so those who smoke must be contained and ostracised. Everybody accepted the dangers of second hand smoking were valid, nobody questioned why the boomer generation, a large portion of whom were raised in smoke filled houses, never suffered the same ailments in later life as regular smokers. People accept what they read before their own critical functions. You're right, it is religious in nature.

20 hours per week playing games - mentally ill 10+ hours per day watching TV - totally normal goy

20 hours per week playing games = "mentally ill"

wanting to cut your dick off to make you a "woman" = "not a mental illness anymore, goy!"

Exactly, they would rather we spend every night in a bar, working on a car, gardening or some shit that is just as unproductive in the long run.

Buuuut Mime, with gardening you at least get something to eat in the en...

SHU'P BITCHASS, you're getting fucking salad fixings. Until they figure out a way to grow ribeye and chicken thigh plants you can take your gardening and shove it up your ass!

Gaming can definitely be an addiction. The question is where do you draw the line between normal and addiction? That's where the issue lies.

Be very wary of a third party trying to define such a thing.

A lack of self discipline isn't an addiction.

Anybody trying to draw a clean line between how much normal people do something and how much addicts do the same thing is not to be trusted. Very often, you'll find people who engage in whatever behavior as much as an addict does without actually being addicted.

For me it is more of an issue of does it prevent you from doing other things because you can't get yourself away from it when something that needs attention comes up? Is it harming you? Do you keep doing it even though you are unhappy?

I game a lot, I have 3 days a week that myself and another friend get together and play in person in the same room. It is as much of a social thing for us as others spending the time on facebook every day "to keep in touch". This is also a cheaper hobby then going out all the time to socialize. When something comes up we cancel and take care of it. We enjoy the time we spend playing and have fun. Are we addicted? perhaps but it is not destroying our lives, we don't have a problem telling reality from fiction, we are not plunging ourselves into debt, maybe we are like high functioning alcoholics who knows.

What does piss me off though is when someone tells me I play to many video games and they sit in front of the TV for as much or more time as I spend on games. They complain that I have schedule but they are not willing to go out on any night their shows are on. But Thrus you spend money on games, have you checked that monthly cable/satellite bill? want to compare what we spend last quarter? TV is socially acceptable games are not, you can shove that as I don't care going to the bar and drinking is socially acceptable as well doesn't mean it is right. Do not stand and say we spend similar money and time on different though very similar things but mine is a problem and yours if just fine, it is a sure fire way to shut down any chance of me listening to you if you are not listening to yourself.

The line is pretty easy to draw. If you stop with whatever you are addicted to, there are withdrawal symptoms. Without withdrawal, there is no addiction.

"Science" tried this shit back in the 70's and 80's with dungeons and dragons board game. They tried to say gamers were satanists. We all know who the real satanists are.

Never ever ever trust anything the mainstream establishment as to say about anything. That being said, I've seen enough stories about kids in Korea or where ever gaming for so long they literally DIE in front of the screen at net cafes. But I'm not sure this has any kind of presence on a large enough scale to denote a real issue overall.
