This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
In whole world no day goes calmly, some news we got every day which related to "a method of government or of resisting government involving domination or coercion by various forms of intimidation" (i doesn't use synonym for this phrase).
& many games which play by age group 12 & more, all have Nonlinear_gameplay,Action adventure. I am thinking, is it any relation between these methods & playing these game? Is any one get inspiration from these games wrongly. If any one get inspiration from football game to play football in ground, is good inspiration. But .... is wrong inspiration! Then why creator of games not think about drawbacks of these kind of games? Or they only see their profit? What java rancher thinks about this issue? (I am trying to write such thread which is related to those many threads which were close by moderators due to not properly written or contain such words which should not use in this forums! I hope people got my point!) [ November 26, 2008: Message edited by: Mandar Khire ]
Millions saw the apple fall, but Newton asked why.
I think video games are good, because they give you the possibility to experience situations you could never live in the real world, like killing monsters on cyberspace. The games also improve many skills in the real world. I remember when I started learning driving a car, some race games helped me a lot, as simulators. But everything in excess is bad, and the same applies to video games: when a person spends too much time playing videogames it might be a problem, because this person doesn't do other import things in his life.
I don't see the relationship... those kind of things were happening WAY long ago: have you ever heard of the Egyptians? Greeks? the Chinese empire? The french revolution? Spanish civil war? II world war? The USSR? Almost all the humanity history involves some kind of "a method of government or of resisting government involving domination or coercion by various forms of intimidation".
To me, blaming video games is no different than blaming the voices in your head. You have to have a screw loose to do such a crime -- just to see how easy it would be.
Regardless, I just started a new video game this weekend. Only about eight hours into it.... But I don't seem to have an urge to act like a wolf god, attacking people with a calligraphy brush. (bonus points for anyone who can guess the game )

You too? I used to have blocks dropping in my nightmares when I was playing a lot of Tetris. And I still don't sleep properly if there are unresolved bugs in my programs. For that matter I don't even allow myself to do Sudoku before going to bed or the same thing happens.
But, it hasn't made me act weird in my waking life.
