    swoop408 you know the gazillions of sidequests in skyrim are all just rehashes of eachother with different locations/characters/items in place of the previous ones... they arent actually "fresh" "new" quests. thats why i got bored and havent even finished the main story line yet :/

    I`m just fine with being a casual gamer, the most `hardcore` thing I`ve done is spent sooooooooo long on Fallout 3 doing every possible quest I could find...

    Getting stuck in prison and having to liberate the Forsworn, working your way up the College of Winterhold and being presented with the opportunity to become a Werewolf elsewhere are all rehashes? Play on, faaaaq.

    The difference is the casual gamer has a social life outside his bedroom.

    I`m open to most sorts of games but my definition of a casual game is the sort of shovelware tripe that gets released in mass on the wii. Like Just Dance. I hope to krishna that this is not the type of casual game this post is referring to

    I do enjoy my games being difficult, but some games take it too far. IWBTG doesn`t even get fun when you actually start to beat it. The only reason to beat it is to get a heightened sense of superiority. Anyways, the amount of fun you get out of a game isn`t how hard or easy it is, it`s about having fun game mechanics that balance complexity and fun, an amazing story with unpredictable plot twists, and something that makes it unique that you haven`t done in a game before. Games should try to avoid being totally linear, and combat should in a sense be used with discretion. It gets old shooting people room after room after room. Combining multiple genres and having a persistent, open world is a huge bonus. That`s why so many people enjoyed STALKER so much, and it`s why Parkan 2 received such good reviews for a low budget indie FPS.

    The problem with `hardcore` gamers is that they have an undeserved sense of superiority. I do like video games, but they are one of the most worthless things one can possibly spend time on. The fact that you completed Dragon Age on hard mode, or that you played Minecraft while it was still in alpha mode, or the fact that you`re 10th prestige in CoD means absolutely NOTHING in the real world. I`m happy playing games casually, and if that upsets you, if people like me are ruining your special secret club... well I don`t care, f*ck off you nerds.

    I can beat Ikaruga without looking. GTFO

    I often wonder why people look at it like this. If this was a hardcore football player they`d be an ideal person. GTFO sports tards. Gaming is the best....but those CoD players.

    That`s basically true of anything done purely for entertainment. Watching sports, movies, or any kind of TV other than the news? Pointless. Reading any kind of fictional story? No point whatsoever. Collecting anything with no monetary value, such as pretty rocks or sea shells? Complete waste of time.

    The value of such activities, including video games, is in the activity itself. They`re fun, and that`s all they need to be.

    As for your assertion that video game skills are meaningless in the real world, the ever-growing e-sports industry would beg to bigger. Video game skills are becoming every bit as profitable as skills in baseball or football.

    "I do like video games, but they are one of the most worthless things one can possibly spend time on."

    What isn`t pointless? Really if you think about it, nothing we do has much of a purpose other than self entertainment. You live, then you die. How you choose to waste your time between now and then is up to you.

    Pizza and yaezakura basically just summed up much of the reason why life feels so utterly worthless and depressing, and I`m glad they did because I try to explain it to those around me and many of them just don`t seem to understand.

    You`re sitting around and think `man, I could be out making money or writing or working out right now instead of making false progress in an RPG/taking a nap/taming my one-eyed flesh serpent/reading TMZ because I hate myself and want to suffer.`...but then wonder what point other options have; making money? There`s only so much you can buy, and most of it just comes down to temporary entertainment anyways. You work out? One day you`re gonna get old and your fitness will all go away anyways. Working on your house? You won`t live there forever, and your house will be re-worked or burned down or demolished one day anyways.

    I guess that means we should just try our hardest to be happy, even if that`s tough to do when nothing matters.
