I love to play video games especially PS3 to ease my stress and to relax after a hard day work. One thing though, some of my friends told me to "get a life" (they were joking though). Anyway, it made me think. I'm having a good life rite now. What do you guys think? Is a person who spend most oh his/her time playing video games considered don't have a life? When i asked them back "What "Life" means to you?".. They just stunned.. I guess they don't know the answer to that either..

I think it is nice and fun to play video games. I think sometimes video games do make us look as if we are living in an artificial world

Of course you have a life and that's your life playing video games. We are the only knows of what things that make us happy. And people can't judge us by doing so unless we disturb them. All of us have different definition of what life to us. If somebody keeps himself working, well that's his life. But if you are a kid or a teenager, make sure to do your duty as well especially if you are still in school. You need to take care of yourself as well. Because I noticed that there are many children who addicted to games even forge their meals. Be responsible with yourself as well. Nothing is wrong if you are playing video games as long as you know your limitation and obey and listen to your parents..:)

Well, obviously you have a life. You just spend quite a bit of it playing video games.

I thing this depends on some factors, Im saying that if you play alone allnight long, its not good for you. Usually when i play games they are singleplayer, but i keep connection to friends trough skype, or other things. I guess it can be said as life, but if you just play all the time. Your quality of life may suffer.

I think that a person who spend most of the time playing video games don't have a busy social life. But, if you are happy with your life then you don't have to worry about the bad comments. You should live your life as you want.

if you feel happy then keep doing what you're doing... as long as you don't do something illegal.

Life is what you make of it. I mean your friends told you this, it's not like all you do is play video games. The key to Life is happiness, I feel. If you're happy, if you have all the right people in your life, you're living it.

Hours long playing video games is not a good job. If we are in stress we can get some relaxation, it is fine. But some are really looking like insane and sticking to computer, without having any other activities they are playing and playing. It is not good. They to maintain certain timing limits.

If you spend one or two hours after work playing video games I don't think you need to 'get a life',it's your way of relaxing after work and it's fine as long as it really makes you feel good.The problem is with people who become so fascinated with these games that they spend long hours playing every day and reach the point when the action of the game becomes more important than reality.In this case it is right to say that such a person.being addicted to video games,'doesn't have a life'.

You can definitely play video games and still have a life! Some people spend their free time clubbing, drinking, etc. Other people prefer staying home and playing video games and stuff. I prefer playing video games personally, and I don't think that it means I have any less of a life than the person who goes out and gets plastered at the bar every night. Sometimes I'll joke and be like "I have no life." But the truth is, I enjoy playing online games, and why should I stop just because some people would consider that a "waste of time". So I definitely don't think playing video games means not having a life. It is truly a release, and it is a lot healthier than other things people do to de-stress!
