Untitled For Random

Articles like these annoy me. Not that video game addiction can’t happen (though according to the national Psychological review, the rules are being updated to reflect that this particular addiction, along with sex, may no longer qualify) rather, the content is incredibly lacking.

It doesn’t go into any detail about how he started his “addiction”, what allowed him to become more involved, how his life “deteriorated” and how he overcame the issue.

No facts. No research. Just, I know this guy in my family with this problem. He said it ruined his life.

Ok. Great. Thanks for posting that. Now we’re going to have people on the bandwagon again against video games when you have no evidence to back it up. Good job!

People are stupid. But that’s the internet for you. You don’t have to be a decent writer or journalist to post online. People will still read and get scared over nothing. Go go America!

Ok anyway, I want to give a promo-moment to MegaRan, the video game rapper who has recently released a concept album that includes music, a comic book, and a video game. Very cool. Recommended purchase, not because MegaRan is an good musician and a cool guy (met him once, lucky me!), but he really is about giving back to the nerds. A three in one deal, can’t pass that up!
