Default Video Game Nation?

How many of you guys are into video games? Xbox 360 here, and I have been hooked since the. purchase. Was a Playstation guy but this time I turned to the dark side(microsoft) and i have to say I think it is more user friendly

Arrow Two Microsoft® game tricks

Freecell: Press Ctrl + Shift + F10 > "Abort" then click on ANY card - You WIN

Pinball: BEFORE launching a ball type the following - "hidden test" (without the quotes).
Now you can maneuver the ball anywhere you want to by using your mouse.

I might sound like a "Ole' Foggey", but these "Games" have taken over the minds and wills of the younger generation.
What ever happened to "Hands On"? My nephew, "who is 30 years old", is so into these games that he won't even help me change the brakes on his car to get a sticker. I will not do the job by myself...it's not my car! He got mad and went straight back to his game...happily.
He has lost his job over those games. Not just him, but other younger people as well, and for what!....a game!
Subliminal messages is what I think. I've seen what kind of power they have, with test subjects and it ain't nothing to be fooled with.
All the youngest generation wants to do is play those games and damn the consequences. No matter what!
So....do whatever you want. I just think after Atari...the games took control of you...not you over the games.

It's funny how people are always looking for some external reason to blame for others actions. You know Elvis was to blame for corrupting the youth at the time, rock music is the devil, movies are to blame for violence. Have you ever thought that maybe your nephew is either just lazy or hiding from some other problem by engulfing himself into games? People do it all the time with drugs, food, alcohol, cleaning obsessively, exercising , the list goes on. I find it shallow thinking that it is the 'video games' that are the cause of his reclusiveness. Oh my xbox is calling.

"Oh my xbox is calling".....LOL...That's pretty funny. I just may have shallow thoughts about video games. Perhaps it's my age....and yes, my nephew is a lazy lump of flesh.
No offense was meant by my comments and Elvis did corrupt us. Of course I was more into the heavy psychedelic devil rock that sounded so much better with good drugs and alcohol.
I guess we all get a bit obsessive over what we look at as recreation, mine's cleaning and exercise, not movies, they make me too violent....Oh my Atari is calling.

I enjoy gaming when I can afford the time, but as life creeps up on you there seems to be less and less of that precious free time, ahhh. For those younger who are involved too heavily I would tend to blame their parents instead of them. With the demise of family dinners together parents seem to accept any form of distraction that keeps the kids quiet (TV, Gaming, Out with friends, etc) IMO
