I'm inclined to agree that some can' separate the games from real life. Sure there was a child no older than 29 walking around my estate earlier trying to track a grizzly with an imaginery Winchester in his hands.

Don’t let my thread get to you, you didn’t have to post in it.

Should adults who play games be audited?
What, like audited by the Scientologists? Or PWC? or the Public accounts Committee? You need to be more specific.

Are you a scientologist OP? It would explain a lot.

Yep.

Irony hopefully not lost on Mary that she's having a debate with a bunch of pseudonyms on her computer, all or none of which could be real but "seem" real to her. Essentially a video game, but whatever the case I'm sure her battle against the enemy commenters will see her reign supreme and she won't have to use any continues or select an earlier save to beat them. But she may use a Game Genie.

The more pressing question is about the auditors imo. Who audits them?

Or do we have un-audited auditors in our midst?

This is the type of thing that causes stuff like Brexit

37 yr old man here OP. Every year my New Years resolution is to play more video games, so... Yeah whatever. I sense that you are the one who wants to control everything

You're talking firmly out of your rectum. Like most forms of entertainment there is nothing wrong with playing computer games in moderation, which 99% of gamers do - the notion of some basement dwelling anti-social weirdo playing computer games 24/7 is a fallacy that rarely happens. Every gamer I know is doing absolutely fine and would probably have more success at passing an audit (whatever the hell it is you're auditing) than you would.

But don't let the truth stop you, you enjoy your moment on your soap box you utter clown

I loved computer games until I was 12. Once puberty kicked in, and I realised girls had nothing but contempt for lads who played video games, the PlayStation was soon dropped.

I don't know, each to his own and all but I do think it's a bit sad adults playing computer games.

The weird thing about this is there's a shít-ton of 25-35yo female gamers nowadays too.

Why are male gamers the target?
