Indeed. Anything in excess is bad. But hey, we got cheats and hacks to make those otherwise stressful games relaxing. :) It's been a long time since I let a game frustrate me. Knowledge is power. ;)

Depends. Those people who wake up to Counter-Strike, spend 3:00 in the morning on WoW aren't exactly stress-busting.
meh, but ppl that spend that many hours online dont get out much :p

as to WoW and such, I was once addicted to UO(ultima online) would spend days at a time playing, but i learned on my own that there where/are better things to do, i still love the game itself, but dont play it anymore(enlarge because i cant play at 1600x1200) but i learned that i should spend no more then 2-3hrs online in any one game at any one time, became a happier person, tho i still binged a few times during server events!!

CS sucks, and anybody blaming CS for something stuipd/violant they did should be SHOT for being STUPID.

hey, if somebody stresses out over wow and goes into blizzard or vug headquarters and shoots the place up, i will feel sorry for the people that died, well unless they are execs, but thats the only way i could link violance dirrectly to wow.

Just as counter-productive as watching TV too, huh? Relieving stress is under appreciated in modern society; always work, work, work. No wonder most are taken by heart failure.

That only validates my point. Games are counter-productive.
so then this forum is really counter productive to isnt it, you arent producing anything when your posting.

and the way i see it, most of the ppl that get that kinda addicted to games are "the weakist links" and them not breeding=good for human race!!!!!


as to work work work, you look at the past, and till modern times people didnt work as hard as they do now, so what do you expect but stress and more problems for peoples health and stress and anger issues.

our whole society(western society) is screwed.......

Of course. If you're wasting your time, and not being productive with the information you gather from here, and being counterproductive to others, then yes, your being here is counterproductive. On the other hand, there are people who benefit from online communities and put collective expertise to good use. It's like watching news on TV.

Yeah but they keep kids of the streets so they cant be that bad. :D:toast:
Why, aren't kids supposed to stay outdoors, at the playground, and indulge in physical activities? Isn't that beneficial?

Why don't televisions, guns, cigarettes, magazines, or cars have this warning on them? All of these things have to do with mature content/growing up and should have a warning label the size of a small badger!

That's where they are sold drugs. lol

btarunr, over here its more common then u think drugs, perverts, on and on, in my area its pretty safe but go 20miles away and i wouldnt let a kid outside to play, or even take the garbage out, its just not safe......sad but true, maby you dont have those problems in india, IDK but its pretty screwed up some places.

just the other day there was a news story about some guy getting kids hooked on drugs then having sex with them when they came back feening for more.....sick shit, and when i say kids, i mean KIDS.......WTF.......thank god i live in a small town where that stuffs not common but still, it was within the distance tv news covers as local.........creapy fuckers in this world :(

EDIT: porn IMHO isnt that big a thing, i know some cultures and many other americans would dissagree but, to me porn is just not that big an issue, the human body isnt something that people should fear seeing(unless its mine in a speedo!!!) and sex isnt something to be ashamed of........not saying i promote kids watching porn, but i sure as hell dont think its as big a deal as drugs, gangs and perverts!!!

In India its much worse. :laugh: Thats why its called third world.

Sex slavery and kids having sex in the back alley streets in some areas. Does nobody read National Geographic here? lol

Drug addiction is pretty bad too. The poorest people simply starve to death on the streets.

btarunr is part of the most powerful bracket of Indian society. So thats not how he lives of course. He is basically are doctor although I don't know if its official yet. So obviously his intellect alone prevents him from having to worry that much.

If that's not sarcasm, which I hope it is, you got it wrong.

Maybe in your city but the things we read about India says the poorest parts has those problems. The heterosexual aids epidemic propagates through the teenage populous very quickly in India. *Edit* Apparently its only a real problem in: "Four southern states (Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka) account for around 63% of all people living with HIV in India."

A friend of mine that runs a business in my city told me about what the laborers would have to eat to get by. If you are in the bottom caste of Indian society and don't decide to work you starve to death. Unless these Indian immigrants were mistaken? :confused:

Every source of info on aids in India basically states that: "The statistics presented in these tables refer to reported AIDS cases. These are a poor guide to the severity of the epidemic as in many situations a patient will die without HIV having been diagnosed, and with the death attributed to an opportunistic infection, such as tuberculosis."



I just think we should all realize that every country on this earth has serious problems and hopefully we will all find the courage to deal with them and make the world a better place. Putting another label on video game boxes will not help to make children less violent.

Because that's what your media and source find "district" about India and try to exaggerate/magnify in their work, so as to let the "distinctive" nature of the news/article/essay sell better.

Yes, what you are talking about does exist even today but is at a far lesser scale than what you're made to believe by your media, that includes NG. The scale of the poverty you know of, existed during the 80s and before, when the leaders were too doped with socialism. Evidently socialism doesn't work everywhere, and in every case. Capitalism was eventually the way to go, and it has done the repair work for some of the most downtrodden sections of the society. Honestly, you don't see people dying on the streets, the sex trade is no where even close to anything you see in the rest of south Asia (Thailand/Vietnam, etc), the southern states of which you find as a source of a so called "real" problem contribute the most the country's economy. Yes, indeed they contribute the most to the country's HIV stats, but that's very much related to the region's population density. Use NACO for your stats: http://www.nacoonline.org/NACO/

That being said, it puzzles me as to why this HIV debate came up, and what India has to do with any of it. Return to topic.

Yes that is puzzling...How it went from some goofy Ca. politician to HIV is amazing, although if one were to make a comparison between douchebag politicians and diseases, I don't think you find much difference...:toast:
