Brain dead video games. Got a few early 20's still living at home in our community that are perfect examples of "hardcore gamers". They remind me of the hardcore "stoners" that I knew in high school back in the mid-'70's. Most of the "stoners" actually graduated though.

Maybe I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning, or haven't had enough coffee yet to make sense of this thread. Why is this not spam?

Why is this guy here, and what does this have to do with cooking?
A brand new poster starting out with this kind of a question, is beyond ridiculous on a cooking forum, in my humble opinion.

Grrrr.....pass the coffee.

Which is why I usually don't post when I first wake up. I'm not civilized yet.

My first reaction was the same as yours, but after reading all the posts, I gathered that it's a subject DCers want to talk about. 27 posts in just an hour!

It struck me as a little odd as well, but the OP seems polite and genuine so I am giving him the benefit of the doubt. He does not seem to be here to sell anything or cause any trouble. I believe him when he says he is in school and working on a project. A cooking site is a weird place to come to get opinions on gaming, but then again he did say he is looking for different opinions. If he went to a gaming site it would be pretty obvious what kind of responses he would get.

Sorry if I didn't sound "civilized". You should have read what I deleted.

I do that too. It helps to get the grouchy out and realize just how grouchy I am, then NOT post it.

BTW, I've come to realize that the grouchiness is usually associated with pain, rather than anything bothering me in my life. I usually hurt worse in the morning.

The OP is definitely not trolling here. I can usually smell a troll from a mile away.
I like traditional board games like Scrabble. The younger video game community produce great drone pilots though, if they ever decide to do that.

I have never been good at sports like hand ball because of poor vision, but once a girlfriend pushed me into a game of paddleball at the beach and I was suddenly returning most of her serves. I finally figured out that I had learned to point and click from using the computer and that made my reactions a lot better.

Hmmm....I wonder what kind of response I would get posing a cooking question on a gaming forum? Just wonderin', mind you.

I'm definitely a non-traditional 50 year old...
I play a fair amount of first person shooter games, but so far only WWII ones.
My wife and I both like Co-op screen Dungeon and Dragon type games
(sword and sorcery, hack and slash)..
And we both are somewhat addicted to Rock Band, which is like Guitar Hero.
Apparently we are somewhat unusual there... we actually strive to get better,
and are now on Hard difficulty level. I have new respect for rock band musicians now!
(We went on our honeymoon to Vegas 10 years ago, discovered we both liked video games, came home and bought a PS2.
Ten years later, we went back for our anniversary, discovered Rock Band, came home and bought a PS3!!! )
