Oh, boo hoo. Good grief, some of you need to experience real tragedy in your lives and gain some perspective.

Like the movie industry, it shows a distinct elimination of anything creative.
They are not fools. They only give the people what they want. Read through these boards. You'll see more requests for sequels or nostalgia than for anything new.

If you hurry, Steam still has the pre-purchase link up, which gets you a copy of the original for free as well.

Too bad you can't. Spelling. Capitalization. Punctuation. Paraghraphs. Grammar exists for a reason. Know them. Use them. Love them. You're not even half as clever as you believe yourself to be. Which is to say, not really clever at all. I'm all but entirely certain that slug would be more than an intellectual equal to you.

Self-righteous comment void due to misspelling.

Getting rid of handles and making people use their real (verified) names might go a long way to "mature" message boards. Then again, it might not.

Someone that was interviewed yesterday (sorry, forget his name, but he was a partner with Michael @ MMJ) said that a lot of Michael's handlers told him it was a bad idea to hang out with children, and why did he persist? His answer "Because children are the only ones that tell me the truth." I suspect he was weary of all the leeches in his life, lying to him, telling him what he wanted to hear, just so they could keep their hands in Michael's wallet. He probably became a recluse to get away from a society that just wanted to take. He longed for his innocence lost and tried to relive it through his relationships with children. The very thing he thought was his sanctuary ended up just being more of the same, when conniving parents decided to take from him once again. At that point, he had no place to turn for peace. I imagine his spent his final years as a pretty tortured soul. I hope he has finally found peace.

If they weren't terrorists going in, they dang sure will be coming out.

The first part is debatable, but the second is most likely true. Whether they started as a terrorist or become one, it is doubtful they can be assimilated back into society. Therefore, what to do with them? I'm seriously curious what you think the answer is.

If the argument is that the older players of the 60's and 70's were not making the kind of money the players are making today, why can't current players take care of the older players? Is socialism not good enough within their own ranks? What is the point of the union again?

This is evidence of abject failure with the union that was/is supposed to represent them.

News Comments > Game Addiction Study
8. Re: Game Addiction Study Apr 20, 2009, 16:16 Atomic
 
Is being addicted to videogames worse than being addicted to coffee? Or to porn? Or to TV? I would say that it's not.

No, but is it any better? It depends to what degree. If taken to the pathological level, all are bad.

Unlike cocaine or cold medicine, a videogame addiction isn't going to cause harm to your body.

It may not cause physical harm Creston, but it can certainly cause psychological harm, and even domestic and sociological harm. Think about what the study found... irritability, skipping chores or homework, lying, stealing. If something has your kid that out of whack there is a problem; I don't care what it is.

However, the games are not the problem. I lay this squarely at the feet of the parents that enable, passively or actively, the addiction to form and foster.

Cutter, you have exhibited more hate and vile than any republican or conservative that I have ever known. Way to win people over! You have probably had a intelligent comment or two over the years, but I just can't get through that barrier you put up. Of course, it is just as likely you haven't.

No surprise here to anyone with a brain. This is simple capitalism at work. Supply growing to fill a demand. There are good number of folks, I'd say a majority, not willing to pay $40 or $50 or more for a game. Why don't publishers get it?
