    We are waiting for what CDC would come up with their own excitement when it comes to naming their own new discovery disease.

    That will be pathetic indeed, everyone got what's making them money, and we wouldn't discriminate that, not even WHO, even if it has health effect. Those who are making money as a result of playing games wouldn't listen to what WHO said.

    Some people are addicted to making money right? I'm very sure that you know people have such addiction. What can WHO say on that? Will they label them having money disorder disease?

    As much as I hate to say it, I think the WHO is somewhat right here. There is very real possibility of people becoming addicted to video games. I still believe that if someone has an addictive personality, they will be addicted to whatever they find to be fun. But, I believe addiction to games is real, and some people do need help. Now, I mean people who do nothing but game all day, don't eat much, don't care for themselves or their family and so on. When it gets that bad, than I say there's a big problem. 
    But, it's the same as those who are addicted to the internet. Sad truth is, I think we're all addicted to the web for the most part. If anything, I view it was tech addiction, where you're addicted to the internet, gaming, and other forms of digital media and devices.

    Who even cares about what they list or don't list as a disease? It's still not going to change anything or deter me from playing.

    I was actually trying to say that Calypso deserved everything he got dished to him by Sweettooth. If he goes to hell, that's a whole lot better.

    Family sedan reacted to Shagger in Name Your Weapons and Armour...   
    This is a bit random, but I'm curious, and also seeking to find out if I'm a little bit mad. When a video game offers you the chance to name specific armour, weapons or equipment (like in The Elder Scrolls, for example), do you have a pattern?
     
    I always like to name my equipment after artists, song or albums I like. For example, I'll name a bow "Primo Victoria" named for the Sabaton song/album of the same name. It's Latin for "First Victory", so for me it fits. For the same reason I also like to call armoured footwear "Sabaton" because that's what a "Sabaton" is. I've also named a sword "Lovebites" for the Japanese all-female power metal band, a bow "Unleash The Archers" again for the band of the same name and a mace "Archangel" in tribute to the Amaranthe song bearing the name.
     
    What influence do to you draw from for inspiration?

    I usually game in the evenings and I look forward to it every evening. It's hard for me to get too involved in a game during the day. I think it's a great barrier to prevent addiction. When the sun goes down my fangs protrude. Hsssssss. Give me blood, give me war, let me walk a road wherever I want to go. I used to read a lot, but now my major source of entertainment is gaming. I'd rather game than watch tv. Reading is just lacking that ummph that games bring. But honestly, I feel more grounded when I read more. At this point, gaming rules all. And I don't give a damn. Take me where you want to take me. My reality is not something I want to face anymore. This world is in shambles. At least in games I can do something. Empowerment. Reality depends on the goodness of entire populations. Gaming only depends on me where I am the savior of all. Where I can fly right into the precipice of those with the power to decide fates.

    It definitely depends on my mood and what other things I did on that day. When I'm in the right mood and I've been looking forward to playing a certain game, it can definitely be a very good part of your day. But I'm not someone that actively looks forward to gaming every single day, and for every single hour of that day.

    Depends on the game and whatnot. Most of the time while gaming and playing with your mates or whatnot it can take away whatever life gives you. LIke if you had a boring or hard busy day, then gaming can keep your minde off.

    Is gaming the best part of your day? It is for me. It is the time of day that I get all to myself with no distractions or issues, and I finally get to decompress and relax.

    Call me cynical if you want, but I personally don't measure the quality of a game on how many copies it has sold, so I see no point in glorifying these stats. Buy 2015, 20 million people had had bought and/or played Destiny and it set all sort of sales records, but that didn't stop the game being crap. So I really don't see the point on discussing this.

    I disagree completely. The ‘old’ generation of gaming was far better. Nowadays we get broken games and micro transactions and a poor experience. Gaming 10 years was way better than it is now.

    The sad truth is, whether you think it's right or not, the majority of mankind's advances in Medical Science have been achieved by experiments and testing on other animals. From basic First Aid and CPR to life saving drugs, inoculations, radiotherapy have been achieved by experiments and testing on other animals. Even techniques in medical training like stitching and surgery are taught using animal carcasses.  If it weren't for animal testing the polio vaccine, which pretty obliterated the disease in the 50s and 60s many of us and our parents wouldn't be alive to have this conversation.  I'm all for aminal welfare but in my opinion people come first.
     
    With that being said I agree @Reality vs Adventure with regard to Elon Musk and these experiments.  The technology is interesting and impressive in theory but at the end of the day it's for little more than toy's, not medicine.  It's not worth that kind of suffering for these monkey's.

    Are you talking about electrodes attached to our brain stem? If they ever get to the point where your brain can move a prosthetic arm, then yes the same can be to play a game. And I believe it's a possibility. That opens the door to cyborgs taking over as in Terminator. There is already medical implants that can alert authorities if you miss a dose of drugs. Add nanotechnology that can do who knows what on the cellular level; possibly carrying microscopic 'satellites' relaying messages throughout the brain to control bodily functions and thoughts. Who knows? In the Dark Ages they would of thought flying to the moon or communicating with someone instantly across the planet was witchery, alienation, or God resurrected.

    Calypso is pretty Twisted lol. He held Twisted Metal in LA and once he destroyed that, he decided to go global with the tournament. The worst part is he held this tournament for entertainment - he didn't care about the consequences it had on the citizens at all.

    Family sedan reacted to Shagger in What job simulator games do you think should exist?   
    These simulator games never appealed to me because they all have the same problem.
     
    I've talked very recently about how video games should be considered as entertainment media and should be allowed to offer the same varied experiences to all sorts of people, but the interactive nature of the platform dose make them different. Rather than being a pure observer, a video game (or at least any good video game) grants you the chance to fantasize at being someone else, more specifically the very someone else in that game's story or situation. I call it the empowerment factor. If a game fails to do that, then it fails full stop.
     
    Now, a game does not have to be a based on a fantasy to make this work. Who doesn't dream of being the F1 World Champion, winning the Superbowl, being the main event at Wrestlemania or winning the Champions League? Even though those things are real, they are still the dreams and fantasies of millions, if not billions of people.
     
    That is the base appeal of simulation games. To be someone or achieve something that you won't in real life. This is fairly straightforward in the aforementioned sport simulation games or fantasy based games, but it's much harder to do this when they simulate a job. You know, the kind of job people do because they get paid for it! Who would then pay money to do that very thing? Even if it is the kind of job a kid dreams of being like a policeman, firefighter or even a pilot, the reality rarely lives up to the fantasy, if ever.
     
    So game developers can do one of two things. Lean towards the fantasy within the real life occupation, or focus on making it as real as possible, a true simulation. You can't please both crowds.
     
    So I don't see the point in these sim games. To work as a video game, they can either deliver a boring, disappointing dose of reality, or an unrealistic fantasy that would be called called out immediately by the hardcore crowd. Maybe there is an appeal to them that I just don't get, but I can't think of any reason why they could really have mass appeal.
