Community-driven video game blog & discussion
I haven't played a video game since 2015.
You haven't missed much.
When did you start working at IGN?
What do you think your computer monitor, TV or phone screen are doing to you?
no, although the media retards will deny it, when you play you are thinking, it's not the same as doomscrolling like a unsalvageable zombie
Well what does it do?
Makes you racist and sexist.
Sounds pretty good to me
Lefties play a lotta video games then!
Let you psychically attack people
Let's you psychically attack black people and women
Basically turns your brain racist and sexist
makes you start lifting
I'm afraid it's too late, anon
You're already posting thumbnails instead of actual pictures, so it's terminal
>Why I'll NEVER Play Video Games Again After Learning This:
>No matter what skills or dialogue options you pick, you can never win her back
Come on man, that was pretty clear from the start, no? The point is to get over it
>Wasteland of Reality
Lungs before and after gaming
how does gaming affect the lungs?
It's considered an evil action by the morality system
negativity and "incel waves" destroy the body
It's because gamers spends all day inhaling bouva
What is bouva?
One of the founders of Apple
I thought he died of ligma
Who is Steve Jobs?
The creator of Sukapon
Awesome, Joy Mech Fight is a cool game.
You stay in the same room inhaling air from your pc
"gamer rage" more formally known as "heated gamer moment" is a condition that affects the lungs drastically. As you can see in
Lungs before and after gaming
, the before is before a heated gamer moment and the after is 5 minutes into a heated gamer moment
that's what excessive use of the N word does to a mf
ive said nword atleast 999999999999999999999999999999999 times though
Pic related, Anon's lungs
you huff gaming fumes from the console/computer
Turns you into a moron
You ever open a new game and sniff the new case?
seething while playing fortnite for extended periods of time will cause an untimely death.
Every time you say moron
you smell your crotch after cumming to Sex with Hitler
co2 emitted by your computer
I can't tell if this is bait or if you're just an idiot
Now post penises before and after gaming
Prolonged exposure to gaming, especially ones with anime art styles or on the switch, can potentially create an ax wound where a normal, healthy penis once resided
Reminder that your false flag attempts to associate anime with trannies will never work. Fuck off back to your discord.
This is retarded because you can like shonen anime and think moeshit is gay for gays.
Shut up retard.
What is this supposed to prove? Lol imagine wasting your time on this just to be wrong
another amygdala deficient retard that sucks off compensating anime full of giant meatheads lmao
>Trannies are actually autists and don't have gender dysphoria.
>Autists like that anime over exaggerates reactions because they have a hard time reading social cues.
>A lot of trannies have anime profile pics.
>Trannies aren't actually even libshits
>They just support the side that feeds into their narcissism and will help pay for their transition
Imagine taking random Ganker/8 posts seriously, especially one coupled with a tranime pic (you can discard mine too).
Cute agression is about something being so cute you want to squeeze it. You know what qualifies as cute in that case? Babies, kittens, puppies etc., not a 39 year old overweight NEET calling little girls going to school cute. This is why moeshit is only appealling to the detritus of society.
It can go from small to big or from existing to being gone depending on a person's level of retardation.
joke on you I started gaming after my mum brought me a Game Gear after I was hospitalized with asthma
Imagine being perfectly healthy and they just fucking whip your lungs out so they can take a photo. Damn.
Doctors are a cruel sort.
Imagine having a profession where you have to make them take an oath not to hurt people doing their job, and being proud of it.
does a janitor need to promise not to hurt people? Or a pilot? No. Doctors though, you need to tell a doctor FIRST and foremost not to hurt people.
That's fucked up.
And then they're perfectly willing to feed you lethal doses of morphine to end palliative care, but you "don't qualify for" treatment that might kill you or save your life because for some reason you can't just sign saying you understand the risks and make them immune to lawsuit for the described treatment. And also because "it's immoral to put people in that much pain if they'll probably die anyways". Life has no value to the modern physician, just saving the DRAMA of pain. They romanticize quacks who kill off unsuspecting victims in critical care out of "kindness". It sure is funny how doctors are all so adamantly in support of abortion, too!
palliative treatment is torture. I'd rather die when I choose to, at my own discretion and while I'm still ok, than pay doctors inordinate sums of money a doses of morphine meant for a horse day after day while writhing in pain until my body gives out.
>and thus it's great when other people have my cowardly nihilistic choice forced upon them by the people they're paying to try and keep them alive!
Your post seems like underage thrashing against the shitty US medical system. So, you are probably just an immature Burger who thinks they know exactly why a professional who spends about 8+ years head first into their career for basic competency does what they do. Grow up retard.
>haha so immature of you to not agree with our professionally sponsored and carefully researched forms of murder!
A medical degree doesn't qualify you to kill or make you philosophically correct about the value of life and death, you worthless euromoron piece of shit.
>Every time you call your teammates retarded one cell in your lungs is damaged
Damn I better quit gaming soon
Are you gaming yet?
I told you guys to drink water...
I try to fill my lungs with water every day but they've started to hurt
Reminder that this is a miner's lung, from coal dust, not a smoker's.
The lie is still repeated.
Fucking miner's they get all the cool shit.
Please don't fuck minors
They literally can't stop winning.
Dumb stupid sexy miners with their hard hats and solid steel forearms and their awkward tenderness with someone they love but are scared of hurting.
>left: pink, soft, girly, vulnerable, clearly a weak organ belonging to a weak "man"
>right: robust, sturdy, gray, tough, has the appearance of stone, clearly an organ belonging to a working man of good character
get gaming, lads
Imagine letting yourself to bet mutilated and have your lungs extracted and photographed before allowing you to vidya
some people donate their organs to science after dying both healthy and sick
don't act like you have anything else to do, you have nothing besides video games otherwise you wouldn't be here
>I'm so fucking epic and rich so you should listen to me
>also buy my course
Elaborate, you philistine.
Gamers are much more strongerer and have HUGE PENIS BRAINS
Enjoy scrolling with social media for 14 hours a day.
How else do i spend my free time?
Why are any of those better than gaming?
Because they're things that every failed normalfag sees as being superior.
>thinking bing bing wahoo isn't failed normalfag
because gaming bad!
Maybe you should try them and figure it out on your own
They feel more fulfilling. Especially exercising, healthy body leads to a healthy mind. Keep in mind that I still game though.
Exercise and Gaming is the key to happiness. If i had space for a pump it or DDR machine i would be shredded.
none of them are per se. they all lead to the same things which is some form of derived enjoyment.
the only one there that is better for you is exercise. Everyone should exercise.
They're not, garden gnomes are just panicking and don't know how to make young man do their bidding anymore.
>Don't drop out of soiciety young man! Do smithery! Look!
Learn a craft Your hero pepe is doing it!
>dingdingding another horseshoe m'lord
Yes goy. Throw your life away at home. Nothing matters. Enjoy solitude.
Because the older generations like those things
Excercise is objectively good.
Reading is fucking retarded. Anyone who romanticizes reading doesn't read anything but shit like harry potter.
Fuck you reading is fun
Reading Donkey Ottie was some of the most fun I ever had
Exercise is good so you don't die of deep vein thrombosis after gaming 18 hours a day every day for years. Reading and craft hobbies like woodworking are not better or worse than gaming, they're both for the purposes of entertainment unless they're not.
Because you waste your time for the sake of that gay (smarter so you make life comfier for him, exercise so he can jerk his cock to you and make stuff to entertain him) so he can waste his time mooching of all your successes and gaslight more people into doing shit for his sake rather than their own.
In other words these leeches want to leech off your hard work and get real salty when you break the cycle and just enjoy your existence. You’re meant to break your back until you’re what? 65? Before you can retire. Then you can ‘enjoy’ your free time with a shitty ailing body abandoned and forgotten by your friends and family. If you’re lucky you won’t be abused by your carers in the nursing home and some literalwho fucking losers can leech off your intellect, good looks and hard work for their own entertainment long after your miserable death.
It’s pathetic. In their tiny brains self-control means slaving away for their petty desires that you do shit for their sake. Rather than you taking control of your own destiny to do as you please with that free will we are all gifted with. It’s some vile supervillain shit. Indoctrination to the highest order by their revolting kind.
I fucking hate vague answers like this
Give me a list or fuck off
Create your own videogame
>crreating a video game is good
>but playing them is bad
You're so stupid you can't think of anything to create?
He should work for video games
>can't even create an idea
so this is what vidya does to the brain
it´s just a dumb retarded take on feeling superior for not playing videogames and paying taxes while slaveing your life away then tinkering with a birds nest and feeling accomplished.
do not listen or try to reason with "creator" numbnuts.
they also think that haveing a family children responsibilities is the epitome of existence.
cattle and subzero IQ
>all I do is play video games and jack off, I'm way smarter than you!
And you pay for it. Frankly he is much closer to the great gayreek philosophers, but not gay and also not ripped. He should work on those.
He probably is
Well as we've learned in this thread fitness and exercise is a gnomish trick
>Makes strawman to cope with having accomplished nothing
Lmao, just lmao. Like I'm a fucking wagie if I tell you to write a story or make a song. Go back to consuming you fucking zombie, you don't even have the capacity to make something of yourself. Actual retard
a clay pot
a furry suit
some beads for your etsy page
weave a basket
paint some warhammer figures
All of those cost more money then just turning on my PC and relaxing.
Books are easier to pirate than any other media.
Why do people think you MUST be productive even in your free time? is this how Nose indoctrination looks like?
None of those things have to be for the sake of being productive, they can all be hobbies for fun. But yes, they are generally more productive than video games, glad you understand that.
>have to be for the sake of being productive
You can keep telling yourself that, mr. shekelberg will still get his money off you anyway
How does that gentleman make money if I go out for a jog? It's free. On the other hand he'll get his money if I play vidya, one way or another.
>n-n-n-no I meant jogging!!!!!
Well yeah, I said exercise. How does that change him getting money from you playing vidya?
Modern fiction is escapism itself and non-fiction is pozzed trash written by woman
That’s only 1 hour a day
> create something
Everything worthwhile in humanity is already created, they literally have to invent solutions to non-existent problems like le blockchain
You don't have to read new books.
>Everything worthwhile in humanity is already created
Bizarre statement. I meant it more as in create art.
might as well play and have fun
Why are you engaging with someone who has such a low IQ and no soul?
> le your iq low my iq high
You lack creativity and when the idea of making art is proposed, you are confused and don't see the point. When someone suggests bettering yourself you complain. You are retarded man, literally a lesser form of life than human. Not my fault and not really my problem. Go back to bing bing wahoo
I wasn't talking to you anyway, I was curious why the other anon kept putting up with you
Ackshually I was pretending to be retarded, you see this is my art, it's sad you have such a low iq or you would have understood you were apart of my ruse cruise all along.
Yet you are here
>I'm le smart
Sure you are imbecil
You could cure cancer.
there's already a cure for cancer, it's just the whole industry is a pyramid scheme
Stop eating hundreds of grams of sugar a day and eating goyslop (processed and junk foods).
Oh look at that, cancer rates are dropping and becoming as rare as polio.
So I can get assassinated by big pharma? No thanks
You never actually read any book at all. Go watch your anime cockroach
>all that projecting
you ok there anon?
You actually watch anime? Why?
>not even knowing what projection is
just go back
Struck a nerve? Kys weeabo. You dont have the attentionspan for a book anyway. Stick to cartoons
anon, no one ever said they watch anime or are "weebs" except you. Go read what projection means before coming here.
>doesn't know that the trick is to create solutions to problems people didn't know they had
>Modern fiction is escapism itself and non-fiction is pozzed trash written by woman
Genuinely sounds like you never read a single book.
>Everything worthwhile in humanity is already created, they literally have to invent solutions to non-existent problems like le blockchain
Couldn't be more wrong. This mentality is exactly why you are stuck on this shithole, defending your pathetic consumer lifestyle instead of doing something productive.
>instead of doing something productive
Hunting invasive species
but you're also on Ganker
Unlike you, I am not here 24/7. I just come to laugh at people like you or the occassional shitpost thread.
How about something that makes you money or gives me you some benefit, like knowledge or what not?
>b-b-but videogaymes also pay me and make me smarter!!
That's the exception rather than the rule.
But then again, you'll find some utter cope so your serotonine addicted brain can keep going on with its consumer lifestyle.
Why do you make all of this shit up? Are you trying to fit in or something?
See what I mean? Now you are trying to find a problem with me since you can't conceptualize the fact that someone who isn't a consumer like you exists.
>uh yeah dude im on the video game board because i dont like video games im just here to laugh at all the losers you know haha
literally nobody believes you
>How about something that makes you money or gives me you some benefit, like knowledge or what not?
And that is productive how?
Nobody in this thread has yet to give a good thing to produce outside of muh-art
The truth is modern civilization is so oversaturated with creativity and ideas that whatever you have in mind is already made by someone else
>whatever you have in mind is already made by someone else
What unique thing did you create?
The sweat stains on my shirt after a 10 hour doomfist jackoff session
Doubt you could do the same
Oh yeah? Tell me what you made
>non-fiction is pozzed trash written by woman
Women don't read or write nonfiction unless you mean shitty self help
I just finished reading Lord of the Rings
I deadlifted 150lb the other day
Nothing is working anons, do I kill myself now or just extend my suffering?
there are probably some very obvious problems in your life you are choosing not to address and instead expecting some randoms on the internet who don't know you at all to give you some magic answer, get your shit together dude
I don't know why I don't like your reply.
>it's all just your fault, despite the fact that you are clearly healthy and disciplined enough to work out and still have functional reward systems to be fullfilled by a book
>ignore the charts about people having fewer romantic relationships
>ignore rising suicide rates
>it's all your fault, stop blaming others
Anon, everyone knows that you have to pull at least 4 plates to cure depression.
>Nothing is working anons
Call me when you deadlift something heavier than a small person. Good on you for lifting though.
The absolute states of america
light weight retard
If you're actually depressed, you wouldn't be posting on Ganker
>If you're actually depressed, you wouldn't be posting on Ganker
what the fuck is the logic here
do you think all depressed people lie in bed and stare at the ceiling all day every day
kys now or stop being a gay and QQ'ing publicly
Dude just watch the movies, I can tell you’re depressed because you’re expecting a book about the most immersive fantasy world to fix you.
why didn't they ride the bird to mordor?
Sauron has AA guns
Maybe you should try playing video games. I hear that’s a neat trick. There’s also never been a single legitimate study that’s down video games to be the root cause of diseases. They also improve your hand-eye coordination.
Oh yeah, get a woman, build a house, have white babies.
Take meds. Unironically. Your brain chemistry will literally not allow you to be as happy as the average person. Accept the leg up, even if it hurts your ego a bit. Better than dying.
many games let you do all 3 of those things in them
Exercise is literally an hour or two. You can't really do much with that.
Exercise is good because you dont get sore or as much back pain from a multi hour gaming session.
That's why you do all three!
meme answers. none of those fixes depression.
video games will?
not really but its a much better distraction than the ones he listed. vidya is ultimate escapism.
That's how you become depressed retard
No. I don't want to.
I can do that with gaming
I can do that with gaming
I can do that with gaming
Try to read a book every once in a while even if you're reading in a video game
Make a vacuum chamber. It's a simple project that allows for some interesting demonstrations and might spark a bit of a passion for that type of thing. You can also try your hand at art. Try drawing or working with clay
>I can do that with gaming
No. Try lifting or just going for a walk even if just for a bit every other day and you'll feel a difference. The thread isn't asking you to give up gaming, it's just asking for one to not be a nihilistic, decadent piece of shit
Why not? Why can't I exercise using gaming?
Yea I don't see why not just do ring fit adventure thats a way better exercise game then wiifit or do just dance for cardio.
None of those are fun.
Reading and creating can be fun
I have only enjoyed one book in my whole life.
Wow what a fag
Too much effort. Get fucked.
Don’t replace vidya as a hobby but just make a backlog of the literary classics and read them when you feel like.
Bizarre how so many people think you HAVE to replace one hobby with another, when it's perfectly normal and quite good to have many
What a tremendous gay you are
>words on paper GOOD
>digital words BAD
Both are good, nobody said one is bad
>digital words bad
uhm yes, i've read more stupid shit here than in any books ever.
I'm gonna grab a piece of paper and write unbelievable stupid shit to counter your argument lmao
The flat earth meme was spread precisely to mock 90IQ retards like that one who think they're science messiahs. It is a good joke, because they're too retarded to realize they are the real butt of the joke.
>offering boring and hard activities as an alternative to fun and easy things
Shitty shit advice that will lead nowhere.
Yeah, as expected from a gamer
What if I do those things inbetween playing games?
Then you may strike a good balance between your hobbies, which is very nice
Like a fucking nerd?
Like a fucking loser?
I read manga.
I fap 3 hours a day. My fap sessions last 1 hour each. Bed sheets are always left full of sweat.
I can do that in Minecraft or something
>Bed sheets are always left full of sweat.
Are you at least humping something or some shit otherwise you're doing less than you think
>Are you at least humping something
Yeah, Dakis and Tengas.
Sex is basically just cardio, it's good exercise honestly
All of these require effort and I am not able to put effort in things
Yeah, well turning on your gaming device takes effort too, doesn't it? Maybe you should challenge yourself with ever increasing amounts of effort.
No I just press a button and it's on
i read manga, i walk my dog, and i cook food. you fucking suck
All good. No need to get mad son.
The toilet ruminations of gay "thinkers" with too much time on their hands?
Anyone can pick up and put down heavy objects for a window of time per day.
So someone else can steal the concept to make money off of it?
very uplifting and motivating thoughts thanks for sharing
The only thing worth creating is fat loads of cum after fapping to JAV 3 times a day in-between gaming sessions

Let yourself get bored. Video games ultimately don't offer anything other than distraction.
There are so many other things that can offer the same level of happiness and more importantly fulfillment.
As someone who is 34 I've played since I was a kid and hopefully anyone younger learns this sooner.
Video games are an easy escape. It's best to avoid that.
Use them if you want, but know that moderation is better for you.
I come here when I'm playing on my phone taking a shit.
Literally shit posting
kek posting in le vee giving advice.
Just fuck off
>escapism is... le bad!
>Let yourself get bored.
And then depression, nice work
>Video games ultimately don't offer anything other than distraction.
Anything anyone do is distraction to keep our monkey brains satisfied because they don't like it when we don't do anything without any goal
lack of stimuus
lack of goals
if you think boredom is depression then i think you may have the tismo.
Everything is a form of escapism. The human fucking condition is just escapism. You posting here is escapism.
Plant a garden
UHH THAT MEANS YOU GOTTA GO TO THE STORE AND GIVE THE gnomish PEOPLE MONEY FOR SEEDS
NO CAN DO
With your girlfriend and friends
having sex? what kinda stupid question is that
I ride motorcycles to places I've never been.
Movies, unironically. Video games are lower than cinema.
What good movies have come out in the past 4 years.
>inb4 watch old movies
Not a bad idea and I do that but still.
getting creampied by your friends from Ganker
Wish I was a discordfag so I could groom a cute boy and fuck him
Wish I was a cute boy so I could get groomed and fucked by a discordfag
I wish we could groom and fuck each other.
I'm not joking when I say this is literally me and my friend, just not the creampie part.
Pls be my bf
We probably live really far away from eachother though
You don't know that
What's roughly the temperature outside?
20 in the evenings, 35 during the day
That's actually not all that far off from my area, but the heatwave from last week here passed and it's back to only reaching 30-ish in the day
Yeah it's a bit more tolerable now.
Anyway I'm gonna stop beating about the bush because I'm going to bed and say that I'm from Slovenija. Goodnight.
Goodnight anon. And unfortunately I was right, I'm from the pacific northwest, so a world away.
But it was nice talking with you!
Wow a fellow PNW fag, congrats on living in the best part of the entire world depending on the state of course.
With your girlfriend’s son
Just wander outside like an asshole until it gets too dark

Why does he have evil lizard eyes
Right I'll take life advice from a crypto shill on youtube..
damn i didn't know my brain looked like THAT
Sorry, but I don't take advice from people who 'shop their eyes blue.
Really feeling uneasy now. Can a fellow gamer girl that has been in the hobby for a few please post her boobies? Do you feel like gaming affected them in any way?
>no link to the video
>no summary of the video
i think that's just a zoomer brain, not a gamer brain. you useless gay.
Me brain good and me game all day. You bad brain because parent eat seed oil. Me learn this from wise man.
please Mr. Rogan you have a meeting to attend
Let me guess:
>"DUHHH IT RELEASES DOPAMINE SO IT'S EXACTLY LIKE DRUGS! IT LITERALLY CHANGES YOUR BRAIN CHEMISTRY AND NEURON PATHWAYS!"
In case you didn't know this already, everything you do is changing your brain, all the time.
Literally the same brain dead argument noporn retards like using to claim porn melts your brain.
No it's worse, it makes you disrespect women and minorities.
Why did he photoshop his eyes blue?
I was going to say this board is proof this is true but then I remembered nobody on Ganker actually plays video games
Yeah that's what you meant to say retard can't even save a image right
Gamers are so defensive about their addiction
personally i think you can still love vidya and have a good life as long as your not overobsessive. i myself have been trying to be more social and busy and its been working great so far. and im pretty sure i still love vidya and anime titties. so dont worry anons you'll be fine.
Life was simpler when it was just the politicians and news outlets being overtly concerned about what video games were doing to people
It took 20 years but Jack Thompson won.
Life was simpler before normalfags had easy and always present access to the internet and gave rise to social media
This is the sticking point. And honestly social media by itself wouldn't be as huge of a problem, but due to smartphones everyone is effectively online 24/7. If the only way to browse social media was to sit your ass down behind a pc normalfags would spend like an hour or two a day on it max, it wouldn't develop into what it is now.
i don't get it, none of this should concern anyone on this board
Did you also buy his shitcoin?
I honestly, genuinely do not see the issue with spending the rest of my life playing video games.
failed normalfag threads and posts should result in an instant and permanent ban
add public too that too so we can laugh at them for a change
I have no clue who this guy is, but his face alone tells me he's trying to sell me something. It's the same dead eyes as Vshred.
Video games made his eyes neon blue like that though
Unless they're purple, video games made my eyes colorblind
Nice I'm not the only one that can recognice them, dunno why they trigger my uncanney valley reflex everytime, something that humans use to recognice something that might look like but is not quite human and feels you with unease and dread, but it does like there's something so wrong with them.
lmao vids like this remind me of the dumb "take cold showers to look thinner" same horoscope shit but for guys
Take showers alternating between very hot and cold water (within reason) and avoid high protein diets and sun exposure to trick your body into replacing cells slower and thus increasing your potential lifespan by forestalling multiple organ failure from RNA write errors.
Don't do the low protein part if you're trying to build muscle, do anything athletic, or lose weight, though.
It's very new research but basically you really do have a choice between burning long and burning bright in some cases.
Seriously though always wear sunscreen if you take one thing away from this. "Healthy tans" really aren't healthy, other than the vitamin D, better to take gummy supplements (for better absorption) or even better just eat foods rich in vitamin D (but not just meat/dairy and nothing else) and get a light tan maybe a few times a year. Remember sunscreen on long drives.
SUNSCREEN HAS CANCER IN IT
Thanks for the advice, but I'm not in need of that. Most of my health tidbits are from people who work out professionally and from people who live the longest. Just stuck with the right ratio and did that.
Cold showers are good if you need to fully wake up quick
Or cool down, not something as extreme as suddenly losing weight.
Darksiders 3 has the best world design.
shame the game is lackluster
>uh I got advice from people so I can't benefit from a longer life
Ok buddy retard
>hi hobby board
>this is why you should stop engaging with your hobby and instead engage in self-help books (that I happen to be selling) and culture wars
don't forget to drink water, whether it's from the fluoridated tap or bottled from the le happy water merchant
What if your local water supply isn't poisoned by the government? I.E. you're not american?
>water supply isn't poisoned by the government?
are you sure? If your country uses lead pipes then it's most likely fucked anyway
You have to remember that a large population of this site now thinks it's intrinsic their free time is spent regurgitating infographics and copying grifter's talking points onto these boards. They genuinely believe they're fighting a grand enemy and not trolls baiting for easy (you)s in these threads. This isn't a self help advise thread, this is a culture war thread. It's for teenagers who found this site through twitter to argue against bait, endlessly chasing shadows.
It's no wonder they fall for any "based" content creator (usually Hispanics and garden gnomes too) selling raw meat "cook"books and self help PDFs that are just things your parents asked you to do (clean your room, go outside, read more). They're so desperate for the validation that their culture war efforts have had any importance they'll fall for the first person who says "modern society is le bad".
4chan got a shitposter elected as president
they fucking wish
That's what you get when your community pretends to be retarded and then the attracted actual retards start doing the same until you are several generations of retards attracted by retards down the line.
>They genuinely believe they're fighting a grand enemy and not trolls baiting for easy (you)s
It's always so tiresome watching a guy very obviously baiting and like 5 people responding to his each and every post
Modern society is shit, though. Maybe some people need a grifter to point it out for them.
Let me guess: a grifter told you to think like that.
You want a better life? Get off Ganker right now and dont come back. You dont even like it here anyway
Ganker is the least of my problems I assure you
Shouldn't had taken the vaxx
Video games improve hand eye coordination and critical thinking
>hand eye coordination
Thats a fucking lie you ever tried anything like baseball with kids who play shittons of vidya. Can't catch shit.
Could you explain? I can see it being true for older games where you couldn't look up anything and had to experiment and think. But modern games handhold the player so fucking much by literally telling you what to do because little Timmy wouldn't be able to beat the game otherwise
Those engineering games where you have to build something for a specific goal
>develop strategy skills
>develop command skills
>learn to operate tank systems
You guys need to start a relationship with Jesus
sounds a lil gay
Hah, my brain is silky smooth and soft like a baby's ass.
I read addiction by design and it basically ruined video games for me. It was like When Neo first sees the numbers in the matrix. All i see when I play video games now are all the mechanics that we're intentionally created to keep me hooked to the game as long as possible
What’s the last book you guys read and was it good?
unironically it was jacked: the outlaw story of grand theft auto
and yeah it's well-written and insightful
The Three Body Problem.
Adachi and Shimamura. I feel super gay now
fuck you it's all text and like 3 drawings
Dune, you made me realized how many books I read half way through and then forgot about.
I've mostly been reading manga recently though, finally managed to click with me after like 10 years of watching anime and feeling like manga just wasn't for me
Twain's personal recollections of joan of arc
It was genuinely the most enjoyable thing I've done in the past few years. You can feel just how much passion and love mark put into the novel. Guy spent 40 years researching it and I wholeheartedly recommend every anon to read it
Beyond Good and Evil and War and Peace.
Actually Moby Dick. Been on a spree of reading classics. Extremely enjoyable. Not really digging The Three Musketeers right now. I think everyone should read Don Quixote at some point.
Absolutely yes to the last part. At least once.
Read Count of Monte Cristo after you're done.
Read Ganker's annotated version of Moby Dick.
The body keeps the score: Bessel van der Kolk.
I read it as part of a training program and I had no idea how insightful it would be.
In The Miso Soup, and eh, it was alright. Liked the detailed night life segments though.
Neuromancer was pretty cool
I really only read when I travel which hasn't been often lately
i just got to lvl 100 in Path of Exile
my brain MUST look like that
and i wouldn't have it any other way
If gamming so bad then why isn't illegal?
smokin is not illegal
drinking is not illegal
Nice bait. That vid is from some wannabee life coach/ crypto gay.
He uploaded vids of him playing Doom afterwards and got called out for it.
so this is a Ganker thread
I don't see any red faces
Funny how some call him out for click bait but most still want advise from him. Cryptomorons are braindead.
he's still worth several millions of dollars from basically hustling through youtube and crypto. Younger guys of course either choose to follow get rich gurus, bodybuilding bros, or vidya streamers as their role model of choice
>people think they're somehow sophisticated or smarter because they read or workout
>somehow because you do those things you can't also vidya
Who in this thread implied either of those things
You can do more than one thing than vidya and being sophisticated shouldn't be the goal either way
>get mad at game and quit
>"I'm never playing video games again!"
>go back to playing after awhile
In case anyone wants to check this dipshit out without giving him views
Sorry, your browser doesnt support embedded videos.
>same old le dopamine argument
>you should do what I say because I have crypto!!!!
not like I was expecting anything but still, come on.
Kek he actually pohostopped his eyes in the thumbnail to make them bluer what the fuck
>Swears off video games.
>Gets addicted to the Hispanice Melange like a total geed.
Sorry, your browser doesnt support embedded videos.
>Starts off with a Rick and Morty pic for a joke
And in the trash does his opinion goes...
its over bros
Guys, for this to be considered a video game thread by me, you need to post a lot of porn and lusty teenage boy comments.
>brain is rotted so far from vidya that he saves the thumbnail
he's already too far gone
It's clearly a screenshot and not a thumbnail
Your mind only degrades when you play bad vidjer. This is why I don't even care about 90% of the trash the industry shovels out.
NOOOO NOT MY HECKIN BRAINERINOOOOOO
>continues to watch goyslop shows and flicks
>The average tranime consoomer brain
me after mario syndrom
Just wondering before the thread dies: if it's about games making you dumber, less attentive, more impatient, basically hinders your ability to ;learn new things and enjoy delayed gratification: What about turn based strategy games, slow pace exploration games/walking sims and puzzles? Anything that doesn't have flashy "ULTRA HEADSHOT +1300 SCORE", makes you grind for things, and has any skinenrbox shit?
This thread is a dangerously epic, disjointed mess. Just like my Zoomer shitpost videos on YouTube!
>gaming decreases your attention span
Do zoomers not have 10 hour play sessions anymore? I still do this regularly
They play bad games, that's the real problem. They play garbage they saw in an advertisement for 20 minutes, and because it sucks they find something else to do. But they always come back to bad games because they're convince they are accepted if they don't force themselves to play whatever they see advertised most Eventually, they form a habit of dropping everything after a short wile. They're going through the motions like the automatons they were programed to be.
>they're convince they are accepted
They're convinced they aren't accepted.
garden gnomegle buying and monetizing youtube was a mistake. A majority of people only make videos to make it big and stop after a year or two if they don't get more than 20k views.
I don't think I even play most games for that long. Well maybe it's more 15-20 hours but still. I kinda envy people that have 1000+ hours in a game, I wish I could get that much out of one but I cap out at like 200 and even that is extremely rare
>Gaming bad because dopamine bad!!!!
Argument status: rekt
>black hand writing on marker board
closed the video right there, don't care, you're wrong
this video applies to watching TV, Youtube, reading the internet, browsing Ganker, porn, etc as well
No doubt a clickbait video.
Gamers... we just keep taking Ls...
if you think women base their mating habits solely off physical attraction, you sincerely need to go outside, touch grass, learn how to interact normally with other human beings, and get your testosterone checked while you're at it.
Its all that and money dude.
oof who pissed off the bottom of the barrel scrapers.
The video games, drinking and porn are literally copes for not being able to find the nice lady.
Treating the symptoms and not the causes is how you make money. Just ask any mechanic.
I understand why those industries exist I am mocking the maker for failing to understand the difference in cause and "solution".
>implying daddy fetish isn't near universal on the dating scene these days
who the fuck was working out and thinking about women at 10 years old lmao
>work out since 10
>Look like you’re in your 60s or even 70s by your 40s
I wonder who made this. They seem underaged.
all my 20 something cousins are dating 40 something bald dudes debate this
>check the channel
>Why I only invest in crypto gaming
>11 months ago
Damn, I wonder how that's going for him now
He's still chuggin'
>time spent doing something
People need to learn that someone can still be full of bullshit even with those labels and qualities. Having more time in something or being a "professional" does not make you immune to being retarded or being swept up in retarded fads. If anything, it opens you to more if you're not careful.
Why do people on Ganker pretend to hate video games? Do they think it makes them look cool or something?
Most people here barely play them and have awful opinions. E.g.:
>It's a good video game because it makes me horny!
>It's a bad video game because I don't like the artstyle!
>These graphics are great! High quality game!
>Halo is just a sci-fi FPS with orchestral music, so stop complaining about the 343 Halo games!
>I really like video games! 95% of my playtime is in visual novels!
Zero understanding of, or concern for, the interactive element. And even less understanding the subtleties and intricacies of what makes something unique. This place is full of third world ESL permanent children that are addicted to porn.
I'd agree but then you have to go falling for memes with the "muh porn" low IQ cope.
>judging an audioVISUAL work on its visuals is dumb
Holy shit you actual retard.
Because this website is flooded by outsiders and general retards. Insecure gays come here to hate everything for fear of being called cringe and gay for liking something, while culture war cunts come here to recruit.
I could never tell if this guy's channel was a parody or not
>my reading addiction
>my social media addiction
>my personal interaction addiction
>my exercise addiction
>my diet addiction
>my church addiction
how do people find modern games enjoyable.
is the blue-eyed aryan ubermensch implying that playing games rots your brain?
He is saying that video games are an overly easy way for a human brain to achieve dopamine release. The subconscious mind is constantly seeking dopamine hits, and it doesn't care how the conscious mind achieves it. He argues that doing something productive and legitimately fulfilling is a better use of our time than video games, and he is right. And now the thread has some useless neets who think that life is only about easy entertainment, instead of doing something that actually justifies your time on this earth. They get buttmad when someone or something challenges their childlike worldview. All that being said, after I post this, I'll probably go play some video games.
people wouldn't regress to children if there was a future worth working towards, but no they have their entire culture and identity turned into brown shit.
Yes, but the people who ruined our culture are the exact same people who want all of us to regress to children. They are very insidious like that. Doing something to hit them back would be a far greater triumph than all the fake victories in video games.
>but the people who ruined our culture are the exact same people who want all of us to regress to children
Actually, anyone who rules wants subjects that need them, and regressing to acting like children only happens because more and more places are having Big Daddy GOV do all the parenting and they even want the age to become an adult to be higher, like 25, which increases acting like a child and increases the need of the GOV.
If you really want to stick it to them, be self sufficient as much as possible.
And if you didn't think the culture before was aimed at the same outcome, you're blind.
Nothing we said is actually in disagreement. And our ~~*leaders*~~ absolutely loathe self-sufficient people, so there are many ways to oppose them.
>instead of doing something that actually justifies your time on this earth
No one asked to be born. Why do you think your "justification of time" is more valid than anyone else's?
Because some people actually have something to show for how they spent their time. And they actually make their own living instead of living off of autismbux like a parasite.
>Because some people actually have something to show
Show who? Why is this person being shown important to the person in question?
Why are you so caught up in pleasing the world around you?
To show yourself?
>To show yourself?
Why? Do we live forever?
Well, if you do absolutely nothing and have nothing to show for yourself, you'll live a very short amount of time.
Unless there's someone else supporting you.
>you'll live a very short amount of time.
Okay? Why is this bad?
Lets say a person is living by themselves and takes care of themselves off the land around them. They are living a long time, but are they bad since they are doing nothing productive for "society".
No no no, that's a great thing to me. But they are only living off the land by the result of their work. That's what they have to show for themselves.
You're making it sound like YOU have a problem with that, and that you should just kick back and relax and enjoy life when you're only doing that because of the results of other people presumably making video games.
>That's what they have to show for themselves
To show who?
And don't meme reply with "themselves" again, actually think about your reply.
Why do they have to show anybody? If they are working out in the woods to survive I presume they are doing it to not die. Maybe that's how this whole civilization thing came about. My whole point is that you can't sustain yourself on video games, you'll die in a couple days tops.
It sounds like now you're just asking what the meaning of life is, but that would fall within the purview of your conundrums of philosophy.
>My whole point is that you can't sustain yourself on video games
Nah, it wasn't to start with. If it was you would have came off with that.
I wasn't that original anon, I just butted into this conversation with
Well even that isn't what your point became.
"To show yourself" as in "doing work for yourself" so you can sustain yourself and not die. I mean you brought up the guy living in the woods and living off the land so I think you understood what I meant there.
Only after a few more back n forths. From just that post, no I did not.
Well, eventually you got it, could have explained myself better. Nice chatting with you.
I can sustain myself off vidya
Teach me your powers.
Just git gud. You’ll die less.
That's a whole lot of fart sniffing there, pseud.
And as predicted, you're some subhuman shiteater from 4chan coming to the hobby boards to preach so gullible retards join your culture war so you can continue to fight it solely by posting bullshit on Ganker dot org
Aka the average moon fan
>neet calling someone "subhuman"
>you don't agree with my retarded ramblings with zero basis in reality so your job doesn't exist
I just finished my work week and am going to spend my weekend with thc and gaming and there's nothing you can do about it.
No anon you aren't allowed too think of your precious dopamine.
Productive? Who the fuck are we producing for? You? Fuck off.

Yeah but about your gamer scoliosis and gamer lumbar lordosis
Sitting down doesn't cause scoliosis
It does. Your muscles tense up unnaturally and your spine gets pulled unevenly and you start developing scoliosis.
Wow that's an amazing discovery, you need to forward this information to every single doctor and medical professor in the world
They already know. You must be an american.
>An estimated 65% of scoliosis cases are idiopathic, about 15% are congenital, and about 10% are secondary to a neuromuscular disease.
That's from Wikipedia. Go ahead and edit the article with all of your evidence if you think you know better. None of that implies it's caused by sitting in a chair.
>click on every clickbait video
>rate them max whenever youtube asks me
Daily reminder that humanity was not ready for the internet. Humans were not bolted to process this flood of information and disinformation. You have been mind broken. Do not repeat memes. Do not share memes. Stop repeating other people’s words. It’s too late for the majority of you. You will never recover. But some of you can be saved. Stop now before it’s too late. You can see what the internet does to humans.
post your chart
no one here is going to fight for the next generation. fuck those losers.
>give up drinking because I think it's making me retarded and apathetic
>still retarded and apathetic
>try giving up games next
>can't give up games though
Why should I take advise from someone that looks like he takes more SSRIs than I do?
Society has always been shit. You wouldn't be happier 500 years ago or 500 years into the future.
Humans are cursed to be smart enough to recognize the curtain, notice the voice is coming from behind it, pull it back, but not smart enough to figure out what to do from there.
We are just animals so arrogant we think we are divinely special, even the smartest beings in the entire universe.
The best thing you can do is try to make the ticking of the clock as enjoyable as you can while minimizing negativity on others.
*of someone who only plays battle royale games, third person Sony walking simulators and movie games
Visual novels are the way to develop big brain
Start meditating, journaling and reading books Gankerros. You can still game, just meditate a little and write in your journal once a day, or not even, just try to be consistent.
I've been trying to fix myself, because I want a big family for myself some day, with lots and lots of kids.
I've been doing stiff like this for the past couple years and feel great again. Its not hard to just go outside and walk or something
That's a cute opinion anon..
I had to block my friend the other day on steam and discord. He brings up some political discussion and says he doesn't want to get into a big political thing while we're playing csgo. He gives his speel, I respond, he doesn't listen, so I have to repeat myself, says that I would talk shit to him if I was paying attention to me talking instead of the game(we shit talk eachother all the time, he's just more passive aggressive, I'm more direct). I bully him a little and he has a meltdown and abandons the match, for a 7 day ban. I see him on steam giving me some long ass response, tell him to grow up and he gets salty and says I'm the one who needs to grow up.
Blocked him, not going have my time disrespected by some libtard chud hypocrite.
Thanks for reading my blog. Going to stick to right wing trannies from now on.
CSGO is bad for your mental health
I watched the vid, and it sucks. He lost me at the Kobe Bryant part. Because what if basketball is Kobe Bryant's dopamine? Is it better because it is not video games? People still need something to relax their mind? This dude just sound like somebodies mom. Plus the money flex makes me think this dude has a small dick.
>everything is a game at some point
Did he leave the school of click bait bullshit?
i've got chronic gamer brain and 30 year old coomer brain.
it's over for me, bros, i can barely time an interrupt anymore.
also every muscle in my body twitches and convulses when i do most things to the point it feels like i'm shaking like michael j fox, but i don't actually shake. i'm sure it's totally nothing fatal or anything...
He shills nft doesn't he
Yes he does, he’s a crypto maniac
>basically boils down to him being a complete retard who's not able to focus on life as soon as he touches a game because all his thoughts will be consumed by it
Real convincing youtube mentor you've got there. Him showing his 800k revenue really showed me he's believable and that I should probably ask for personal paid mentorship from him before I open my company.
Real gamers shit on the stop like I'm shitting on this thread right now
I didn't know Ganker was this unoriginal and uncreative
How the fuck can you not know this by being here for even five minutes?
Well there's a lot of memes and shit posted here just like every other board, I assume at least some of these are originally made, that's creativity enough
But when you got most of the thread acting like it's some terrible thing well, that was somewhat unexpected
I just created some fuckin pancakes.
If gaming isn't dangerous then why did it kill that guy in Taiwan?
Systemic opression, it's our fault we have to be better towards video games
what the is wrong with his eyes is he addicted to Hispanice?
Another off topic shit thread that will hit bump limit.
>b-but is vidya related!
No, it's not. Shut up retard.
This anime ruined anime for me. Nothing comes close
Perhaps he's merely warning us that letting one thing become an addiction and dominate your life and worldview is bad... Let's go to his channel to see more context for the rather clickbaity title and thumbnail...
Oh... oh god.
maybe he uses his millions to afford his Hispanice melange addiction
>eceleb tells me thing, i must oobey
fuck off and good riddance, zoomer
