I don't play video games. Good way to mush your brain. I read books, play guitar, listen to music and watch documentaries.

If you don’t play video games, why even bother to comment? Especially if it’s going to be a snide remark like, “Good way to mush your brain.” 

As if all the gamers out there (myself included - at 49, I’ve spent a good chunk of my life being a gamer) are all a bunch of blithering morons. Since you read books, why not educate yourself and pick up a book on the benefits of gaming? There are many out there. 

Like everything in life, all in moderation. Don’t be so judgemental.

It did come across as a bit snotty, I apologise for that. Like you say, I guess moderation is key.

Currently, I'm going through Life is Strange 2. It has made me tear up twice by now. Hmph.

Civ 6 :)

My favorite Civ is Greece (Gorgo). The bonus culture for killing units means I get to rush Mysticism & Oracle.

it's a hobby like any other. it's also a bit absolutist to suggest that gamers minds turn to mush. this isn't even offensive but amusingly shallow thinking.

What kind of books? Guitar? In a band? What music do you listen to and what documentaries? Damn you Dan! Why aren't you a girl!

I don't mind computer games, but sometimes I just get ragey. I hate how some really fantastic games force you into player vs player scenarios that just totally bleeds the fun dry with all the exploitations and countless hours of gaming they have over you. At least I can't complain about my shitty internet anymore, though! Fank fook!

Mafia II: Joe's Adventure

I'm trying to get Joe to a million bucks.

The game play is great. The game goals fall a little short. There is nothing to do with the money except customize cars. You can't even buy a car. You have to steal them. It would have been nice if they'd let you buy houses. I could be a real estate tycoon. So I invent goals. Steal a city bus and ram a police car to see if I can escape. Find a sniper roost and take out pedestrians to see if the cops can stop me before I run out of ammo. There's the fast car police chase. The cops are pretty easy to lose... but that just makes getting caught more exciting.

I was born in the fifties so the retro city of Oyster Bay and the music is comfortable to me. Odd to relax by stealing cars and shooting people, but it's my happy place... um... virtually, of course.

I'm playing FFIX at the moment. Gradually making my way through older JRPGs that I was either too young to play at the time, didn't get to play as a kid or were a few years before I was born.
