One of my best friend's little brothers has, to my knowledge, done nothing but sit playing games and smoking dope for the last twenty years, bar the shifts he does at a corner shop.
He is a balding forty year old. No gf, no aim in life and nothing to say for himself.
Unless you engage him a conversation about video games.
Well we'd say that from the outside looking in. I guess it depends, though - if he's happy and doesn't feel like he's missing out?
It's just difference subjective values placed on different things. I'm not saying that as a gamer - 'cos truth be told I've never had the patience to stick at any computer or console games long enough, but all the same, it's easy to look at some people and their lives as sad, but that tends to be with our / your own value system.
True enough, I don't want my kids to grow up, stuck in their bedrooms, locked in a world of their own on consoles / computer games, but that's only because I want them to have choices, and have experienced other things and be active. When they're fully fledged adults, if that's how they want to live their lives, then so long as they're happy and can function in society.
