The Reality of Gamering

gamer controls

 

I don’t think a person with a balanced life or who uses games to sublimate antisocial feelings

it does give me pause however

that many military forces have in fact used video games to de-sensitize soldiers

so yes, it is possible.

under the right circumstances and conditions – but more importantly

conditioning

 

 

I played Pong, Atari 2600 & 7800, Nintendo’s first machine and I have a playstation 3 move console. Computer games on the computer.

 

I started with Dungeons and Dragons 1st edition but only up to 2nd AD&D, also The StoryTeller Vampires and other supes version 1 and Deadlands first edition.

 

Settlers of Catan, Talisman and other non-mainstream board games

 

 

because playing games is actually a social activity

 

 

so if you work and play well with others, you can construct whole worlds

 

it’s only when gaming is about war training or peacetime mickiing

 

that games are used for bad purposes

 

 

blame the intention and the outcome

 

not the method
