    I concure.... But the above story is a sad fact of life now days.

    I have a 21 yo, that is paying the price of the same mistake/addiction (less children of course).

    He now gets to pay for ALL his own college expenses...since "playing video games" is not considered a "major" at his current selection of schools, by his father.

    He called last week, needing a new power supply for his PC.....He may actually pass a course this year....cuz he didn't get one ;)

    LOL, a good power supply is only $99, but I DO see your point. I have a little brother (18 years old) that does the same thing. He HAS graduated, has no job, and plays video games ALL night til 4am and gets up at 2pm and slaps a couple applications in in the afternoon (sort of like here ya go, you'll be glad to see I am full of ambition). LOL. He is going to go to a technical school here, but it doesn't start until Sep...so I guess he figures he will just play internet games all day. It is a REALLY bad problem these days.

    There's a lot of negative that goes a long with the positive with the internet. It's made the world a smaller place, but there's a cost. I kind of miss the simpler days of the 80's, before cell phones, and the internet.

    I like computer games, but I don't touch those massive multiplayer games. They're something else. I read a story about a guy in Asia who played such a long marathon he had a heart attack and died. People shouldn't blame the video games. It's just lack of common sense that drives people to do things. People do horrible stuff for the stupidest reasons. Sports. Video games. Candy. Looks. It's just video games are easy to blame because of recent events. It's just more ammunition for that idiot Jack Thompson.
