I don't know, each to his own and all but I do think it's a bit sad adults playing computer games.
You should have carried on, you've missed some cracking games over the last few years - but each to their own dude

My mam once questioned how anyone could sit interacting with a screen for hours playing a game, the same woman has a weekly ritual of bullsh1t brain-dead soaps between 6.30 and 9 every day of the week

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 beg to differ, my partners brother is a 33 year old, basement dwelling anti-social weirdo who plays games 24/7.
The only time he leaves his bedroom is to collect his dole.
Sad existence really.

Wow, the ninja edit by that poster gave a clear message. Are you a mod or a poster here as you can’t be in the parade and watch it also.

I agree, it is a sad existence and he should seek help for what is most likely, at this stage, an addiction - my point is that your partner's brother is the exception rather than the rule

I don't see any problem with it, a grown man on a skateboard I'd have a problem with.
