this. I have never enjoyed video games since middle school, and I can't imagine how much farther back I would be if I did. Why adults spend their time playing children's games is beyond me.

yeah bro, why would you listen to music, watch movies, look at art, or read. REAL adults are mentally-empty corporate slaves.

Video games are equivalent to all other forms of media and entertainment

Video games are counter-productive to any sort of self-improvement, deep thought, or emotional development. Gamer culture is a toxic milieu and is designed to be addictive.

Different people have different kind of ways of getting their fun time. Some like playing video games, some like going out and drinking and some others like to invent programs to solve equations.

It's just how it works get over it

Since you're still a child that explains why you missed my point. When you grow up you're essentially working for money so you can spend it on wasting time. How you will waste your time is completely up to you, it doesn't matter, it's still a waste of time because due to our current idiotic utilitarian indoctrination everything is a waste of time that's not related to your work.

I argued this:
Video games are a waste of time
You reduced this to absurdity by representing my argument as:
Everything not related to work is a waste of time

I'm saying that video games are a uniquely bad waste of time since they 1) Are less "productive" than nearly every other form of entertainment (music can illicit an emotional/spiritual response, reading makes you smarter, sports are good for your body, etc.) 2) Are addictive and generally shorten the attention span of our generation since no one can go more than 30 seconds without some electronic dopamine reward

No, I just tried to show that using age as an argument is absurd. Anyone can use Veeky Forums, thinking it's only for children is the same like thinking video games are only for children.

I argued this:

You reduced this to absurdity by representing my argument as:

I've been through this conversation before, it always boils down to the argument that somehow by not doing something that's productive it's automatically a waste of time which you implied with @haveahappyday
and with your 1) point.

reading makes you smarter

Really dude?

You seem to think for some reason that somehow every other form of entertainment has meaning but video games don't as if finding meaning or having a connection with something is depended on the format. People form emotional responses to everything. And your 2) point is fucking retarded. I'm totally playing solitaire or fucking Civilisation for that 30 second electronic dopamine rush. Do you seriously think there's only one type of video game?

idk, I've already finished a math minor in calc 1-3, odes, pdes, and complex variables (like complex analysis without proofs) and I've never had to learn proofs

Don't you learn to do proofs when you take intro to analysis which is like a 1st semester course?

What I'm saying is that various entertainment media have varying degrees of legitimacy, and video games are the bottom rung. They provide instant gratification like no other form of entertainment (except perhaps binge-watching tv shows) and tend to consume their users like no other (there is r/StopGaming but no r/StopReading). I'm not saying that it's wrong to spend part of your time doing absolutely nothing; only that video games are generally counter-productive to most people's life goals. The only thing stupider that I can think of is watching live streams of other people playing said games. That's just mind boggling to me.

What legitimacy? Is there an ISO standardization for entertainment?

They provide instant gratification like no other form of entertainment (except perhaps binge-watching tv shows) and tend to consume their users like no other (there is r/StopGaming but no r/StopReading).

Again, do you think there's only one type of game? Also sports provide much more instant gratification than video games, especially extreme types. But I guess sports have more "legitimacy" because you burn out your body faster and more severe?

I don't know why reddit would be your orientation for what's present or not but reading is often frowned upon and seen as a dumb waste of time. Also I like how you perceive reading as a universally productive thing. I can read 30 Danielle Steel novels and gain absolutely nothing from it. There are countless "stop reading trash" groups around.

I'm not saying that it's wrong to spend part of your time doing absolutely nothing;

Then it shouldn't be so boggling to you that some people like videogames.

Some things are better to waste money on than others. You could use your free time to do fun stuff outside instead of sitting in front of a tv/computer, at least when you're old you won't be saying i never left my apartment

I would like to add to this compare the award shows for music, film, and theater, then compare to the video game awards

People like to say that video games are just new and that's why they aren't taken seriously, but other mediums were never like this

video games are far more addictive and destructive than other media, although I do agree that tv has been bad for us, so I stopped watching it. I never said "everything you do must be productive", I said "avoid doing things that make you a worse person"

The only difference is at one point you had to leave your house for everything you mentioned, and you far more often than not, went with other people, so it was a social gathering. I think there are definitely cases where video games are counter productive to some peoples lives, on the other hand, considering how many autists post on this website alone, I am quite grateful they spend all their time playing video games and not bringing a gun to a live event.

/sci/ is discussing the legitimacy of playing video games for fun instead of insulting OP for needing to be in complete science to write fucking INDUCTIVE PROOFS

This is it. We've reached peak shittiness. I want neo-/sci/ to fuck back off to reddit and leave the rest of us alone.

As for you, OP, kill yourself you retarded brainlet frogposter.
