Go ahead, flame me . Those types of video games have always been verboten in my home.
It depends on how much they play the games, and if they're neglecting their job or family to play them. Personally, I'm a female that loves gaming, but I am not an "addict". I have the ability to put down the controller and walk away from it when it's time to clean house or cook a meal or spend time with friends and family. For me, it's no worse than someone watching television or reading a book. It's just another form of entertainment and I don't see any issues with it unless it's taken to excess.

Most likely in a cemetery or urn near you.

This is true! I agree with you entirely. For instance, some women get irritated because of men who want to watch the "game". Yet there are women like me who if you CHANGE the game......there will be some heavy duty screaming in the house!!!!

Go figure.

Then he's still finished because of the ramifications of getting married in the "femisphere" will come and it will not be pleasant maybe minus the gaming.

Video games are great to tune out women when necessary

No seriously, all the people that think its so immature and life wasting are immature and closetminded to begin with for thinking so. The shopping comment is a perfect example...not all women do it though. And I'll complain about it but I also understand women's minds are built differently than men so I just let it go....as opposed to all you narrowminded freaks who knock the hobby.

So I get home last night and played my Wii for about 40 minutes. I then went out and played Tennis with friends, including a 77 year old man who had a knee replacement in June. We split the sets (1-1) and he was the best player on the court. I then came home, talked to my girl, and a friend, and did some reading before falling asleep for the night.

I'd probably sound like a well rounded guy if not for the Wii. That's according to some of your opinions.

Video games helped me in school. Thanks to Legend of Zelda I was the best one at problem solving in grade school and Pacman made me the fastest at mazes and word searches. Tetris helped me with graphing. Almost all the games I played involved some sort of reading. It's not all bad

I guarantee you video gamers on average have much better hand-eye coordination than non-gamers as well.
