“It’s rotting your brain!”

Look down. Look around you. Turn left. Then right.

How many devices do you count?

I’ll give you a… generous estimate of about five.

According to you, every time you look at any of those devices, your brain rots a little more.

We’re all trapped in a never-ending spiral of rot. Turning, spinning. The ever-tightening gyre.

And as gamers?

At least we’re enjoying ourselves while our brains rot out of our heads.

“Go outside! Get some sunlight!”


I sluggishly tell the people in my lobby that I’ll be a moment. I take my Switch out of its dock, plugging in my headphones.

Time to get up!

I take my controller, open the door, and plop down outside. There, I continue to play my games.

“Get off that!”

Me: No thanks, I’m playing with my friend.

Non-Gamer: “Um, those aren’t real friends! They’re just online friends!”

Me: Sure. Who told you that, someone you added on… Facebook?

“Oh my god, you’re playing video games! They’re for kids! Grow up and get a life!!!!!!!”

“You’re watching people playing games? Seriously? You’re not even playing?”

Edit: Jesus Christ, 2.5k upvotes? Holy shit! This is the biggest answer I’ve ever written!

What are some things NOT to say to a gamer?

Dad: “Hey, son, can you pause your game and come to dinner?”

Me: “It’s an online multiplayer game, dad.”

Dad: “Okay, but can you pause it?”

Me: “No.”

Dad: “Why not?”

Me: “Because I am playing in real-time with many other people.”

Dad: “Well, can’t you just ask them if you can pause it?”

Me: “Argh!”

What are some things NOT to say to a gamer?

On top of other answers:

  • “Shoot him. No, over there! Fire! Oh, you’re dead.” Just don’t.
  • “Just pause it.” It’s an online game.
  • “Forty (pounds/euros/dollars/hundred yen)! That’s a ridiculous amount of money; films only cost like ten (pounds/euros/dollars/hundred yen)!” Films give you two hours of entertainment, and video games give you 30-400 hours.
  • “Oh, cool, you have a Playstation!” IT’S AN XBOX!!!

How can you tell if someone is a gamer?

A gamer is just a person who likes to play games either on a console or PC.

But, if we talk about professional gaming, you can easily find that by watching gameplay.

If he/She is playing an offline game, they will also be focused on side missions and optional missions.

The same applies to online gaming, but this time, you should observe how they kill opponents and what tactics they use.

How can you tell if someone is a gamer?

You can only tell who is a gamer on the street if they’re wearing a gaming T-shirt or carrying their gaming PC under their arm. For the most part, the sneaky gamers hide among us!

Seriously, though, anyone who plays games is a gamer. My dad puts several hours weekly on Civ 5 on his laptop. Gamer. My roommate plays some slot machine games and Angry Birds a few times daily. Gamer. Furthermore, you have my friends who play D&D or RISK all the time. Gamers.

Some say you’re a hardcore gamer if you play X amount of games, or if you are better at games, or you have such-and-such badass PC, but that’s just chest-puffing and trying to get competitive with something we don’t need to be competitive with.

If you enjoy games, you’re a gamer. Simple enough.

How can you tell if someone is a gamer?

They play them and talk about them!

The stereotypical gamer spends a lot of time playing games, talks about games regularly and may be socially awkward. The idea that gamers are always socially awkward is an outdated stereotype. Log on to popular forums such as IGN or Reddit, and you’ll see plenty of threads related to the latest NFL game, post-college life discussion boards on Facebook, or just anything else kids these days find interesting on the internet.

Gamers most common identification signs :

1. They spend most of their time playing video games on the computer or console.

2. Their room is filled with posters, figurines, and other memorabilia from their favourite game series

3. They know the names of all the characters in their favourite game and follow the latest news about them.

4. They have a gaming system hooked up to their TV, like a PlayStation or Xbox

5. When you ask what kind of music they listen to, they most likely mention “video game soundtracks” or “game-inspired music.”

What do gamers have in common?

It’s 4 am, and you’re gaming with your friends in the middle of a ranked match.

Your entire family is asleep, separated by a thin wall.

One sound too loud, and you’ll have to deal with an extremely angry family “meeting” (aka beating).

It’s the final overtime round; you’re the last one alive.

The sweat is dribbling down your forehead as your teammates go silent.

You have the tightest angle; surely you won’t die. Your teammates watch in anticipation.

Suddenly, out of nowhere…

This screen confronts you as you scream and slam your table.

You’ve lost a rank, woken up your family, broken a keyboard, have a throbbing vein in your neck, and all you hear on the other end of the mic:

“Dude, you suck.”

What do gamers have in common? No matter how well you play in the most impossible situations, they’ll say you suck with no remorse if you can’t win.

  7. Lack Of Money, except when it comes to spending it on games
  8. No Meaningful Social Life because we spend all our time on games
  9. We are physically frail but mentally/creatively strong.
  10. I’m just kidding about all the above points, but gamers are smart, cool, fun people to share and enjoy games with or the culture surrounding it.

What do gamers have in common?

Gamers have a lot in common.

They are typically people who enjoy spending their time playing video games.

This can be a great way for them to escape from the real world and relax.

Gamers also tend to be social creatures, preferring to play with others online or in person.

They often have a strong sense of community and like to discuss games and gaming strategies with one another.

Finally, gamers are usually passionate about their hobby, leading them to seek new games and challenges.

What makes someone a gamer?

A gamer is a person who immerses themselves in an entertainment medium and understands how the medium works.

A gamer is a person who can habitually move an avatar and interact the way that they want them to with the world.

A gamer is a person who decides that they wish to enjoy themselves in the pursuit of one more level.

A gamer is a person who can look at a game and realize that it isn’t just mindless repetitive button pushing but rather a fight that they will fight until they can cross the next barrier to victory.

That’s a gamer.

Now, I’m personally a hardcore gamer.

Because I refuse your reality.

And substitute my own.

How do you know if you are a gamer?

That might be an indication.

When should I start calling myself a gamer?

The answer is very simple!

  • When you’ll give gaming a priority in your life.
  • Gaming is no longer just a time pass for you but a passion.
  • You’ll generally prefer gaming over going out and chill.
  • When you’ll bunk school/college to finish a game.
  • You’ll feel amazing after completing a certain objective or the whole game.
  • You’ll be very excited about upcoming games or game updates.
  • When you’ll start dreaming of having a career in gaming.

Many examples like this exist, but I hope you got your answer already. 🙂

When should I start calling myself a gamer?

  • When you’re able to recognize the guns you see in movies by name.
  • When you know what ‘slice the pie’ means.
  • When you think of strategies to defeat opponents.
  • Both teams want you on their sides when you’re at a LAN party.
  • When your mom forces you to leave your room.

When should I start calling myself a gamer?

You can call yourself a gamer when you can play the game without hurling curses at it because you can’t play it properly.

At what point do you consider someone as a gamer?

When they have a range of experiences with different games played consistently (even in a causal manner, they dont have to play daily, but if they have a day off and nothing to do and they never turned on a game, they aren’t a gamer, now if they are busy with school or work and days off are kept busy normally, but they make 30 to an hour in the morning or that night for their favourite game then yeah, mobile games not included! A gamer can play mobile games, but playing mobile games doesn’t make you a gamer!)

They have a general knowledge of gaming history(only knowing CoD and FIFA does not make a true gamer; these people are a subsection known as “bro gamers”)

they can hold conversations about video games and the industry,

they dont cry when they get called a “fucking faggot” online but instead either simply roll their eyes and ignore, mute, or get into a shit-talking match with the offending troll; they tea bag their kill(or their friends kill!)

They get salty and tilted when frustrated,

and they can pick up a game with zero tutorial(tutorials are for people who are just starting, a real gamer feels out their abilities and figures them out on their own, nothing more frustrating then being stopped every 2 steps to have your handheld)

Once you have hit at least most of these points, you can call yourself a gamer; some are more important than others, but they are all part of every gamer I know, including myself and some of my younger friends!

At what point do you consider someone as a gamer?

Me: Do you like games?

Them: Yes, I do.

Me: Well, there you go! Welcome, gamer.

I truly, truly do not care. I like and am very passionate about games. I have rants for days. But this kind of wanting a gatekeeper that lets only some people in and others out is stupid and immature.

It’s just a name. It’s barely even that. It’s one thing used to describe one part of a person’s personality. We don’t need a gatekeeper. Do you need someone to be able to lap a pool 50 times before you call them a “swimmer?” No, you don’t. You have to love swimming.

I’ve been on the other side of one of these gatekeepers. Said I was a gamer and was bombarded with stupid little trivia I didn’t know was required to call yourself “gamer”. It’s stupid, and all it does is make people feel unwelcome and turned away from games because of the toxic environment around them.

Let people live, man.

What should you never say to a video gamer?

What the F… are you doing with your life and time?

Trust me, when it comes to video gamers, we are very calm and composed and don’t respond to negative comments easily, but if you are pushing, then beware of the results.

You say it once, and we will be busy with our game, killing demons and getting stronger. You will get weird looks if you say it 2–3 times, but we respect our relationship with the mouse.

You say it several times and seek an actual reply; beware, you need more time to see the dark side of our relationship with the keyboard.

You need to understand our game and why we do so. If you don’t and can’t figure out the change in your mood with the game, YOU might flame a calm ally into being your enemy.

You might get a taste of our lovely keyboard on the face and go on in your life thinking what did I say? And we will move on to our next game.

So never say anything like, “You are wasting your life just tapping that keyboard.” Remember the lesson of the keyboard and its keys that were taught.

What are some things to say to a gamer?

In real life, speak to us normally. Just because we sound like we’re speaking a foreign language when we game doesn’t mean that we don’t understand plain and simple English. 🙂

However, if your question is asking, “What do gamers like to hear?” Well, in games, we love to be acknowledged for doing something well. For instance, “Thanks for the healing.” “That was an awesome shot!” And my favourite (in Overwatch), “Whatever you did just then deserves the Play Of The Game.”

Personally, my favourite in real life, though, is my parents relenting and saying, “Fine. You have 45 minutes to play video games.”

What is a true Gamer?

Originally Answered: Who is considered a true Gamer?

Some believe a “gamer” enjoys playing games, even “casual games”. However, to subscribe to this definition is equivalent to saying that anyone who watches movies is a “film buff” and anyone who eats food is a “foodie”. That would be ridiculous because 99% of those living in non-impoverished situations would be considered film buffs, foodies, and gamers; the terms would all become meaningless.

Most agree that true gamers enjoy something more than cheap games. For example, few people who play Angry Birds or Tetris for five hours a day would call themselves a “gamer” with a straight face (just like no one who eats anything but McDonald’s every day would call themselves a foodie). On the other hand, “gamers” are usually associated with enjoying more artistic (Limbo, Journey), thoughtful (Braid, Portal), and big-budget (Mass Effect, Bioshock Infinite, Skyrim) video games.

These critically acclaimed games generally (not always) have a very compelling and involved storyline, immersive graphics, sound design, and musical score. I’m a fan of Garry Schyman, and he was one of my instructors, so here’s an example of a good musical score:

Comparing such a game to a casual iPad or browser game is similar to comparing a full-feature dramatic movie to a 30-second commercial. That is why many prefer the more strict definition of “gamer”. In the same way that people like to differentiate between “person who watches movies” and “film buffs” and between “people who eat” and “foodies”, we like to differentiate between “people who play games” and “gamers”.

Contrary to popular belief, the purpose of this distinction is not to boast from some ivory tower of elitism and say, “You are not a true gamer”, but rather to reduce the probability of someone thinking that casual games or mindless shooters are all there is to “gaming”, to encourage people to discover a world of amazing games that most don’t even know exist.

What is a true Gamer?

Wow, the amount of negativity in some of these answers. Guess I’m going to be considered a misogynistic gamer hipster based on how I’m going to answer this, but oh well.

A true gamer is someone who feels that their main hobby is gaming, who thinks about playing their game when they’re not playing it, whose conversation is directed towards video games more so than anything else, and who religiously follows game websites to keep up to date with new games, and will usually be the ones that discover hidden gems in the indie genre.

I’m going to be honest: I find it a tad ignorant to say that any person who plays a video game is a “gamer.” There’s a reason that we make distinctions between someone who only plays Assassin’s Creed and the people who do all (or most) of the aforementioned things. There is a difference between something that only reads Twilight and someone who reads tons of books of all different types of genres. No, Twitard, you’re not a “book nerd” just because you picked up awful literature. No, you’re not a “gamer” just because you play Assassin’s Creed. There’s a reason actual (insert whatever) want to bash their head in their desk when they hear people call themselves “nerds”, “gamers”, or “geeks”. All of those groups recognize fellows within the group and get frustrated with fakes. It’s just like if a nerd is trying to be a jock because he watches college football to support his college – they’re going to get disgusted by him and shun him.

How can I know a gamer’s personality through the games he prefers?

I don’t think you can.

Rebecca Wilova and I both love Civilization.

But although she and I look alike in every other respect, our strategies are very different.

I like peace. I don’t like conquering people. It makes me feel like an asshole. My defence is to be more technologically advanced than my neighbours. That’s my deterrent to would-be attackers. My army is usually not large. I prefer to plough most of my energies into science and infrastructure building.

But I’m a vengeful little fuck once I’m attacked.

Rebecca, on the contrary, is Genghis Khan. She willfully seeks wars of conquests. I’m happy to win a scientific victory.

I should also mention Janne Pohl, who wins religious victories. Who the hell does that? Like, I’ve managed to win cultural and diplomatic victories. But religious? Wow!

How can I know a gamer’s personality through the games he prefers?

It’s not just by the games a person plays, but how they choose to play them.

When I played Life is Strange, I made an effort to help everyone I could and make friends whenever possible. There are other ways to play the game, though, which include some really hilarious bits of dialogue.

She responds to this with “Eat a dick, Max.”

Playing the game that way just never occurs to me. I don’t go out of my way to be a jerk in real life, so being deliberately rude to people for no reason just isn’t in my nature.

I love Fallout: New Vegas because it allows me to make friends with just about every faction in the game. Ultimate Guile Hero runs for the win. Playing your cards right, you can have just about every faction in the game help you take down the Legion (who, by virtue of being absolute bastards to everyone, have very few friends); being smart, though, you can win friends for the Legion as well, including the Brotherhood of Steel and the Boomers.

That’s not taking into account your party, my favourite group of NPCs in an RPG ever:

All of them have a loyalty quest, during which you can help them deal with something troubling them (the death of Boone’s wife, the stagnation of Veronica’s faction, Lily’s dementia, and Raul’s feelings of inadequacy). It’s not the usual Bethesda approach of “Go bring this woman a mammoth tusk, and she’ll marry you” (probably because Obsidian made this game); here, it feels like you’re actually making an effort to help people you care about.

It gets taken a step further in Dead Money, where you’re given a smaller but much less unified party, but again, by treating them right, you can avoid them turning on you at the end and actually get them to help you take down the man responsible for all your misery.

Like the Brady Bunch but with more violence.

When I play Battlefield, I tend to play as a Medic or Combat Medic like this guy:

K/D isn’t important to me. I honestly don’t care if I end a match running 5 and 20 (and that does happen sometimes). I’ll still be in the top five of my team if not the match, and my squad is usually in the top three.


Because I focus on healing people and reviving them when they go down. I make sure my squad and teammates are still in the fight because a good Medic can keep an attack from bogging down. I’ve never finished a long match without firing my weapon, but I’ll often go several minutes without engaging the enemy because, as I see it, everyone in the game can kill the other team, but my class is the only one that can keep us alive. Medic (with the exception in certain circumstances of Assault, the designated anti-vehicle class) is the one class absolutely indispensable to an offensively-minded team. Medics are a force multiplier because they allow instant respawns for friendly players; you can keep an attack going indefinitely with a competent Medic or two (I know because I’ve done this before).

People look at the Medic class’s weapons, which in Battlefield 1 include the Cei-Rigotti:

And the iconic Mauser C96:

They see weapons with low capacities and low rates of fire and walk on by, forgetting that the Medic’s primary concern is healing friendly players. It’s not the Medic’s job to clear enemy trenches (although, with practice, you can definitely do it with this loadout) or knock out enemy tanks (possible, yes, but not likely).

The Medic’s job is to be a team player and keep everyone else in the fight. It’s not glorious, but when done well, it’s incredibly satisfying. A lot of people shy away from this role, but I fully embrace it. Helping people suits me.

How can I know a gamer’s personality through the games he prefers?

How can you know a gamer’s personality through the games they play?

Well… I’m no expert, but my layman’s speculation would be

  1. Reach out to a reputable research group and propose your hypothesis: a person’s gaming preference is associated with their personality.
  2. Work with psychologists and data scientists to create a questionnaire that could help identify players’ gaming preference and their personalities.
  3. Send out the questionnaire to the public.
  4. Collect the questionnaire and data.
  5. Analyze the data
  6. See if the result proves the hypothesis.
  7. Repeat the research in different locations.
  8. Write a paper
  9. Go through peer review.
  10. Publish the paper

That’s how you know if a person’s personality is associated with their game preference.

At this point, there’s no such research exists. We have research on player preference. We know what people generally want when playing a game. The research was done by various groups, which generally came up with similar results. We know players can be separated into various segments, and each segment has a primary goal they want to achieve in the game (or a need they want to fulfil). Some people want competition (these are usually your typical multiplayer gamers); some people want exploration (these are the kind who enjoy open-world games that encourage exploration and discovery); some people want stories and emotional connection (RPG and story-driven games); and last but not least, some people just want to collect things (card games, RPGs…) We also know these segments often overlap with each other (some gamers looking for multiple things from the same game). And we know some players switch from one segment to another…

We know all of that, but all of this research is done within the confines of in-game behaviour. We don’t have research (or at least, I’m not aware of such research) done that correlates real-world behaviour and in-game behaviour or game preference. Yes, we have gamer demographic research done, such as gamers’ gender, occupation, age… etc. But that has nothing to do with the gamer’s personality.

So, we don’t even know if there is a correlation between personality and game preference. I think there might be some correlation, but that’s just my own groundless speculation.

So if you want to know, you better do some research yourself.

How can I tell if I am a casual gamer or not?

I’m sure there’s gonna be a lot of different takes on this, but in reality, it’s all about the mindset you put into gaming. Doesn’t matter how good or bad you are at games, how many games you own/play, or whether you put in 50+ hours a week or just a couple. In my opinion, it’s all about how you derive your enjoyment through gaming and your perception of the play.

If you only seek quick, shallow experiences where you just want the positive feeling from flashy instant gratification most commonly seen in mobile games, then you are most certainly a ‘casual gamer’ in my eyes. People who often care little for stories in games, who just get a bit of fun from something they can get into quickly and, with little effort, feel rewarded in some way.

This type of experience isn’t limited to mobile, though; many console titles now, particularly top FPS games, have become more ‘casual friendly’ in their death-match modes through the map design, spawn locations/speed, death streak rewards and so on. Minimizing the downtime after death while also creating more randomness during gameplay to give less skilled players more chances to get kills. This process of minimizing the skill gap through adding more randomness to games, as well as design elements, is always a strong indicator that a game is catering to a more casual audience. It is now the majority market in the industry, and as such, many mainstream titles have adopted more casual-friendly gameplay elements, which can be seen across pretty much all genres.

People who I’d describe as ‘hardcore gamers’ are the ones who want to be challenged. The ones willing to immerse themselves in the world of whatever game they’re playing and persevere through any adversity willing to put in the time and effort to become better at the game through practice and learning in order to complete it or perform better online. It’s not just calling something too hard and getting frustrated because they died at it a couple of times. Doesn’t matter if that’s on the easiest difficulty they’re having to struggle through, or if it’s just for an hour after work getting past one tricky boss. It’s the people who follow and care deeply enough about the lore/characters in their favourite games that they become emotionally invested in the stories and want to find out all the little details.

It’s these ‘hardcore’ type players who get the most rewarding experience from gaming as a hobby. Not that there’s anything wrong with being a casual player, but I see them as very starkly different things to just be grouped together as gamers. Each type also needs games that are more specially tailored to their play style rather than the amalgamations that are being released trying to cater to both. Also, as with pretty much any group, these aren’t just a checklist of things you have to tick off to be one or the other; it’s just a case of being more toward one end of the scale than the other.

How can I tell if someone is monitoring my phone?

The best way to check if someone is monitoring your phone is to download an app called Monitor Scanner. It will find any instance of spyware on your phone, as well as the person who installed it, along with their phone number and social media info. Best of all, it works with iOS and Android.

The prevalence of technology and the digital age has brought about new challenges regarding privacy and security. If you suspect that someone is monitoring your phone, there are several tell-tale signs that you can look out for. Here are some more ways to tell if someone is monitoring your phone:

Unusual Battery Drain: If you notice that your phone battery drains faster than usual, it could be a sign that someone is monitoring your device. This is because monitoring software and apps consume a lot of energy and can quickly drain your battery.

Increased Data Usage: Monitoring software requires data to transmit information back to the person who is monitoring your phone. If you notice an unexplained increase in your data usage, it could be a sign that someone is monitoring your phone.

Suspicious Apps: If you see unfamiliar apps on your phone that you did not download or recognize, it could be a sign that someone has installed spyware on your device. These apps can allow someone to access your phone remotely and monitor your activity.

Strange Text Messages: If you receive strange text messages that contain links or requests for personal information, it could be a sign that someone is trying to gain access to your phone. These messages may contain malware that can be used to monitor your device.

Unexplained Background Noise: If you hear strange noises, clicks or beeps when making phone calls, it could be a sign that someone is monitoring your phone. These noises may be caused by surveillance equipment or software that has been installed on your device.

Changes to Phone Settings: If you notice changes to your phone settings that you did not make, it could be a sign that someone has gained access to your device. This could include changes to your security settings, passwords, or other settings that you did not authorize.

It is important to remain vigilant and take steps to protect your phone and personal information. If you suspect that someone is monitoring your phone, you should take immediate action to investigate and address the issue. This may include contacting your service provider or a security professional for assistance. By staying aware of the signs of phone monitoring and taking steps to protect your privacy, you can ensure that your personal information remains secure.

Is there a way to tell if someone is a gamer just by looking at them or talking to them for a few minutes?

For immediate pointers, you could probably stop for a while (without making it awkward) and see if the other party asks why you stopped or tries to start a conversation. If they do any of the two, there is a good chance that they find talking to you interesting/worthwhile.

It is likely that they are enjoying talking to you If they

  • Ask questions or start a new topic.
  • Smile occasionally (now even that could be out of politeness), laugh at times (on a joke/situation that you talked about and not on you) and maintain eye-to-eye contact for a good amount of time.

PS- I’m no expert; this is just my opinion. Correct me if I’m wrong, but people do that every day 😀

Here are a few pointers for determining whether someone is interested in what you’re saying or not.

Is there a way to tell if someone is a gamer just by looking at them or talking to them for a few minutes?

Body Position

The first clear indication that someone is interested in what you’re saying is his or her body position. If they are squarely facing you (or ever so slightly off-centre), it is a good indication that they are interested in what you are saying.

Eyes Wide Open

If someone is interested in you, their eyes will generally “open up” by arching their eyebrows, causing their eyes to open more widely. Their eyes may also dilate so they can see more of you. Eyes being wide open is a clear signal of interest from the other person.

Looking Good

Another major body language move that says someone is interested is primping or preening. When a person is interested, a man might adjust his collar, sit or stand up taller or puff out his chest. Women tend to fix their hair or brush it away from their faces so they can be better seen. If your listener is tidying up, they’re subconsciously saying that they want to look good for you.

Where The Feet Go

If you’re not certain about the other person’s interest, check his or her feet. If someone is interested, his or her feet will be turned toward you. If their feet are pointed in the direction of the nearest exit, you may need to take decisive action to regain interest. When we like someone, people orient their feet closer and toward you; if not, they will literally point their feet toward the nearest exit in an effort to escape.

Other Signs

A few other indicators are denying a clear view of the front of the body, lack of eye contact, and less animated movement. When movements are restricted or limited, the other person is telling you they’ve lost interest. Fiddling with objects is another way of telling you that there’s a lack of interest.

If you are speaking to someone who is leaning away from you, feet in the direction of the door, and keeping his or her hands still, you may want to rethink your choice of conversation quickly before they escape.

Why are some women against dating men who play video games?

As a woman married to a gamer, I can answer this question. Before I met my ex, my brother and I used to download games from the Internet and play in our spare time, so it wasn’t a great deal, but when I met my ex-husband, he told me what a big gamer he is (he sold one of his accounts online for more than 10.000$, etc.). Honestly, I had no idea what he was talking about at first. Soon after, I had to find out. His day went like this: “wake up, go to work, come back home, eat, and lay on the couch until 2-3 am playing games on smartphone or PlayStation.”

I couldn’t have a normal conversation with him because he wouldn’t stop playing for five damn minutes. It was frustrating; we had no sex life and slept in separate rooms because of his addiction. If I tried to explain this to him, he would become verbally abusive and would say anything hurtful to make me shut up and leave the room. There were no cuddles, kisses, or hugs; he didn’t stand to be touched while gaming. My best friend had a similar situation with her husband, and he became violent, too. He didn’t do any chores around the house, just playing, and when he was not playing, he was mad for not playing. He was overweight all his life because of junk food and sodas while gaming; when I started to cook for him, he got better, but since we have been divorced for many years, he is obese now.

Not all gamers live in their mom’s basement unless he is a teen. My ex was a grown man who paid his bills. Unfortunately, his life meant work and games.

No matter if he plays games online or not, the fact he plays them EVERY SINGLE DAY is a problem. This is the definition of addiction. Regarding what someone said, that she was verbally abused online by other male gamers is not something new to me; in real life, they are the same angry mofo. There are some studies claiming that video games can make you violent, but I would say these games just feed the violence that is ALREADY there. It is a form of escapism and is no different from doing drugs. Except for violence is the sense of paranoia, and they are not emotionally developed.
