Geek things we all think about sometimes...

People Influenced By Video Games?

I had to laugh at this one… Do you still play farmville or have you converted to Candy crush, temple run, or draw something? The world we live in and its mindless entertainments I tell you.

I must go.. .I have to kill zombies in Black Ops while I get the last achievements. 😉

    I don't facebook much, but I did play Skyrim heavily for a while there. In keeping with the observation offered in the OP, I'll note that I never once took an arrow to the knee. =o)

  6. J Schippnick says

    What is this Facebook that everyone keeps talking about?

  7. Lee Smallwood says

    +Amanda Blain I thought most FB users were farmers 😀

  8. Chris Lau says

    Not for long +Amanda Blain – Zynga and FB had a falling out, so the game will eventually disappear from that site…and i suppose replaced by lots of instagram pics of food.

  9. Stephan Hovnanian says

    I love Temple Run (Oz). But that's about it these days. Went through a Words with friends kick for  a while, but never directly on the social networks.

  10. George Miller says

    L.O.L very true!!!!

  11. Alfonso Suárez says

    I love Osmos 🙂

  12. Chris Lau says

    +J Schippnick it's where all the blue heads (profiles with no pics) on google+ came from.

  13. Richie Garcia says

  14. Rose Johnson says

    If video games influenced me I'd wander into people's houses and take anything not nailed down.

  15. Lee Clarke says

    I'm stuck on level 30 of Candy Crush.  Started last week and I  can't stop playing it.  They should have named this game Crack Crush.

  21. MARCOS MIRABEAU NASCIMENTO says

    JA JOGUEIMUITO

  22. G.Waleed Kavalec says

    If Pacman influenced people we would have droves of them listening to repetitive music and swallowing lots of mysterious pills.

  30. Mike Hendrickson says

    +Atein Riggins be prepared to get stuck over and over. I was on 147 for three weeks and am now in my 2nd day of 155. It is Crack Candy Crush for sure.

  31. Marisa Goudy says

    I skipped but this post at first +Amanda Blain because I was thinking video game related stuff doesn't apply to me. Then I remembered just last month when I lost a week of being-present parenting and overall productivity when I let myself download Candy Crush on the phone and the iPad. I was losing my ability to be social, but I wasn't craving jelly beans…

  32. Neville Swaby says

    I played Farmville once but i don't have the time to continue playing even though i have been invited so many times.

  33. Phillip Ryan says

    I would be a goblin and sneak around all the time pickpocketing.

  34. Donagh Reardon says

    But do we know how many people out there are trying to knock buildings down by catapulting flightless birds at them?

  35. nick miles says

  49. Bruce Williams says

    Farmville.

  50. Michael Winkler says

    if influence by video games would be direct and immediate, then mankind wouldnt exist any more.

    Lol

  57. Bruce Dobson says

    +Alucai Vivorvel
    Here, here (with a sarcastic wink)!
     We have almost all of those. The only one that's really mine is the Nintendo 64, and that's only because my wife bought it "for me" (for the family). What a debacle that turned out to be.  When I had to make a choice between Farmville, what ever that other Farmthing was and Island Paradise or my family and friends there was really no choice to be made. Family and friends win hands down.
    It seems to me that the more we throw our lives away playing video games the more zombie-like we become, thereby making something that's otherwise impossible an absolute reality. Someone (above) said that reality is for those who can't handle fantasy. I've heard that from so many people, but usually only those who don't know what an original thought is.
    Regardless of his intention, I believe Marshall McLuhan said it best when he said, "The Medium is The Massage". I think he was talking about us zombies when he said that. If you think I'm being cynical and paranoid, about this you're right. If not me then who?
    Have an interesting day.
