My brother is fifteen years old and doesnt go to school, or work. He just sits on the computer for nineteen hours straight playing an online game- World of Warcraft. He is becoming quite scary and noone will do anything about it. Now, he is beginning to think that people are trying to poison him. In your opinion, do you think that people who play computer games as much as he does, inevitably lose their grip with reality?

Well, education is important, and playing games sometimes is okay because it releases tension. But i've never heard anything like your bro before. Maybe you should counsel him. 1 User(s) are reading this topic (0 Guests and 0 Anonymous Users) 1 Members: sgoel27 « Next Oldest | Serious Discussions | Next Newest » Fast Reply Show Smilies Pop Up Window | Enable Smilies | Enable Signature Close Topic Options Track this topic Receive email notification when a reply has been made to this topic and you are not active on the board.

well, then you should advice him not to play video games too much... remember there are also so many games that can be played with his friends and for me, playing with my friends has more pleasure in it than staring at a box called "monitor", it also makes a better relationship with the community and you'll acknowledged by them

I think it depends on what games they play. I enjoy games and certainly dont lose reality.
