I'm sick and tried of when people say they went slow on a game because they have a life. I was woundering started this non-sense. We all have a life, but some chose to do differnt things with it. So what makes a life worth value? I believe if you are proud and if you enjoyed your life then your life will be valued. Whats your opinion?

I believe that to measure the worth of one's life, a man must measure his grammar and spelling. If both of these elements are in above-par condition then your life has worth.

I was going to say that, but I didn't want to bring the kids hopes and dreams down.

There's no point to life, there is no meaning.

So give it one yourself.

Basically, if you enjoy what you're doing; if you're aware of the consequences and are okay with them, who cares?

I rather disagree, there are many points in this life, unfortunately most of the other people you'll meet in this life will be trying with gusto to shove them through your spleen.

Try not to look for the point in life, inevitably it will find you instead.

Dear Mr/Miss/Mrs/Ms Snowalker,
Do what the fuck you want with your life. Play game, have rampant sex or lie in bed all day just do whatever you find fun and whatever lets you get the most out of life. What I or the guy who thinks you have no life think shouldn't matter to you in the slightest because it's your life to live.

Every life has a point or else it wouldn't be life. If life doesn't have a point it would be super super boring!

I guess it's all about doing what you like, I go slow on some games because I has a boyfriend, and he needs to play or get some attention sometimes. And I have other hobbies too. Having a life is all relative. What kind of life is getting drunk and making a fool of yourself on a regular basis?

My view is, gamers are seen to have no lives, as homosexuals are seen to be camp, and the british are seen to live in castles, and worship the queen. And say 'Cheerio' etc. Stereotypes apply to most things, and that won't change.

Learn to spell, by the way.

*EDIT* Actually, it was the guy below this post. Taco person. He thought the incident was funny. They have the same picture. My apologies for stating that you were the culprit.

It does always amuse me when someone claims to have a life yet do nothing but watch shitty daytime tv all day long, get stoned at night and go out and get shitfaced at some boring nightclub every weekend.
Yet I am considered to not have a life just because I talk to all my friends online. Most of them live in the city but I dont like phones.

*edit* Btw after 3+ people bitching about his spelling it gets old. Get over it you assholes before someone scans all your posts for errors.

How to put this gently...

On a site full of "editors" where rule number x (x being a number somewhere between one and five) it is always free game to pick at a post which, if presented to an English teacher for grading, would be covered in substantially more red ink than black. To save time, I'm not going to pick the original post apart, I suspect most of the readers here are doing that for themselves as they read the original post, however next time you're posting and you spell something wrong note the little red line that appears under an incorrectly spelled word. There's just no great reason to spell so poorly.

*edit* One. It's actually, literally, physically rule bullet number one.

Oh by "editors" you mean "arrogant pricks" who get off on feeling superior to others.
I see now.
People just tend to focus way too much on someones spelling and dont even try to comment on the topic at hand. If all they are going to do is ***** then they should stfu. Especially if they are the type of moron who thinks its okay to have poor spelling/grammar if its a "cool internet meme" thing. Which I am guessing most of those people are.

My opinion is that someone who feels strongly enough about this issue to post a thread about it probably doesn't have a life.

Umm.. I apologize for my spelling, I seem to have a hard time with that. That is also why I make small posts, less errors.

There's apparently some kind of social stigma with gamers. We're seen as the kind of people who can stay down in the basement, staring at the TV with a sweat-soaked controller in hand. It's not really what you would call an active lifestyle, and in America, "going out" as well as being in top physical condition are valued qualities (ironic, since America has a really high obesity rate). So whatever. Screw 'em, man. I can say that high school jocks are over-aggressive, AIDS-carrying, assholes and lead questionable lives, too. It's all stereotypes. You see fat gamers, you see slim gamers; you see nerdy gamers, you see socially competent gamers. Next time someone tells you to "get a life" because you're a gamer, tell 'em to piss off and mind their own business.

The purpose of your life is to leave a mark on the world. And the best way to do that is by having children. So if you have a chance to make children that will survive to carry on your name and legacy, then you should drop whatever you're doing and take that chance.

EDIT: Also, has anyone noticed that John Tacos and Snowalker are using the same avatar?

I go slow on games because I have a full-time job, need to sleep for said job and like to spend the money from said job physically interacting with other humans in an environment that does not have me belittling their skillz or submitting that they are, infact, a pack of worthless cocksnarks.

Occasionally, I will take a two week break from my hectic lifestyle, cancel all social engagements and lock myself in a dark room with a large TV, a console and a supply of heart-destroying snacks for a gaming marathon, just to remind myself who I am, where I come from and earn some of those delicious gamerpoints.

That's very insightful, really, I'm being serious...not joking. That is an extremely well thought out response and I'm sure Snowalker loves it. Anywho... The people who say that are usually idiots or arrogant @$$h0135 who are somehow able to get by without a single intelligent cell in their body. Those are the kinds of people who use stereotypes and believe that all videogames are just stupid products whose sole purpose is to entertain them. They fail to see videogames (some videogames at least) as a form of art. They are the kinds of people who fail to see just how important videogames are to modern culture, who fail to see how integral they are to the advancement of technology. I suggest leaving them alone in their own little worlds to do whatever the hell they want, they don't even deserve a proper comeback.

Lately I've been hanging out with people that claim to "have a life", trying to figure out what I've been missing out on these past few years.

I've been forced to conclude: not much.

I was trying to imply there is no 'one' point to life, hence you must create a point for yourself.

I didn't mean there is no point at all, merely that it is incredibly difficult to define, can change at any time, and is different for everyone.

I understand what you're trying to get at, but for me, I could care less. I really don't care what anyone else thinks. As long as I'm happy with what I'm doing, why would I care?
