Top Ten Reasons to Not Play Video Games


The Top Ten

1 It's addicting.

There is nothing wrong with playing a video game for an hour per week. If you invest more time in it, you are gonna suffer... suffer a lot! Believe me, it is true. For only those who are prepared to deal with real problems succeed. Those who are prepared to deal with zombies etc... are doomed. I regret it so much that I played video games instead of reading good books and making friends! So please... for heaven's sake, try to overcome the desire to play video games! For they are very addicting. Like alcohol drinks and smoking, they are strong enough to ruin your life.

I strongly disagree with this list. - Therandom

This list is wrong in all ways. Video games teach me lessons, like how to be more logical in real life. They are also very fun to play. It just depends on the person that plays it.

Damn right!

2 Broken and unplayable games

Some, But Not All, Ever Played Zelda? - VideoGamefan5

Solution: don't get broken and unplayable games. Also, don't use a typewriter if games aren't compatible with your device(s)

that sucks

3 Microtransactions

Then don't use them. Simple.

Wait, disagree. Don't want them, don't use them. - Skullkid755

The only one I agree with so far. - Skullkid755

They're running video games - ikerevievs

4 It makes you lazy.

The video games don't make you lazy. It all depends on the person playing the game. The game cannot force the player to sit still for 5 hours straight, it is the player's choice.

Well, If YOU DO It All Day But If You Do It For Like About 50 Minutes Then Nope, It Doesn't Make You Lazy - VideoGamefan5

This is why I don't get to have time for exercise!

Not my problem. I'm already SUPER lazy!

7 You lose interest in everything else.

I'm A Big Gamer (Well Not A Huge One But I Kinda Big One) And I Have Other Interests - VideoGamefan5

Maybe, but not all the time.

I play games and do other stuff. - Skullkid755

8 It makes you obsessed.

Then learn how to manage your gaming habits.

Just like anime, the internet, and food. - Skullkid755

Mostly happens to people who focus on one game

9 Thinking about how to kill the night guard during the Mathematics class is not Einstein's idea of education.

Then don't think about killing the Night Guard. Did we say you had to? No.

What the hell does this have to do with Einstein?

I'm pretty sure there is no Animatronic simulator.

10 Rage quits

The Contenders

11 It makes you tired.
12 It separates you from reality.

What do you mean by reality? Real reality or virtual reality? Define the phrase "reality" more clearly if you don't want to be contradicted. - Skullkid755

That's actually part of the game

... Is that a bad thing?

That's what makes it fun! - Katekat123

13 Leads to addiction.
14 It strains your eyes.

They get your eyes dry at times

15 Keeps you indoors

This makes me sad - oldfashionedmickeymousecol1995

This must go up - oldfashionedmickeymousecol1995

16 Cheaters

Cheat codes are old

17 It makes you angry

Playing Video games is not bad.. But the thing is which games are you choosing! - paasadani

Just like the Angry Video Game Nerd.

He's acting. He probably doesn't do that in real life without being in front of a camera. - Jake09

Look up Simonhds90 on YouTube. That's all I have to say :D

18 Bias fanbase

I am talking about the idots who play online and complain about Nintendo sega and any other company - ikerevievs

19 Hurts your thumbs

Especially if you have to press really long

20 Life won't wait for you

Those are lyrics to Ozzy's Life Won't Wait. - NuMetalManiak

21 Video game hackers
22 They take too long
23 They're boring

You get bored of most after ten min

That's biased - DragonFire1o

24 You think about it when you're supposed to not think about it.

This is more reasonable

25 They make you unsocial

Um, me and my friends talk mostly just about video games. If there weren't video games, we wouldn't talk much. We go over to each other's houses mostly just to play the games they have and we don't. If there weren't video games, we wouldn't go over to each other's houses much. See a pattern?

Actually, it could make you more social if you play with your friends when they come over.

Ever heard of multiplayer? - Skullkid755

How is this a bad thing

26 It makes you fat

I often don't exercise as much as I should, and I'm UNDERweight. - WonkeyDude98

27 Life's too short

There are a lot of fun things to do in the world. Putting them all together in one life is very hard!
