    Is that how I made it to seem? Well, I apologize for that, if I made it seem as though you were born and/or destined to like a certain genre of a game, and nothing more to it. In that sense, you are right. Nobody is branded as something so specific and so early. I defended that counterpoint by saying that you can surpass anything through hard work that you have not gained naturally--this is constantly occuring, is it not? This is why we work to learn new things that do not just come easy for us.

    However, you are certainly, as you agreed I believe, directed, geared towards a certain direction due to influences of culture and up-bringing. Yes, this makes sense, it appears that a simple misunderstanding of words occured, and when that happens and you don't want to find out the truth and what really was implied, this leads to ignorance (and I'm not saying that's what happened, either) .

    1. You never closed your first quote, it's a pain to look at.
    2. Who's "they"? Are you trying to argue with someone?

    I guess it is what it is. :/ Pretty weird though, I only had one other person like that, my friend who I met in kindergarden (however we lost touch a year and a half ago). Now I may have met another person that thinks like me....crazy.

    @ my god the wii owns: how culd he be starting an argument by using the term "they"? If you're referring to the "gay" mis-conception, I think that's been cleared up.

    noooo i just typed a huge thing on how my philosophy on gaming corresponds to real life situations, i spent a good 15 minutes typing it all up...now all that information is boggled in my head and I'm too lazy to write it all back up. Ion, please if you hear this, stop logging people out for being "idle" for several minutes, it seems that every time i type...since my mouse isnt actually clicked on the site, but rather in this text box, that I am considered "idle". I lost at least 3 long passages in this way! bah its annoying watch this post not even make it through...

    Yeah I agree.

    Most people and gamers don't know what they're missing out on. I'm constantly suggesting games to my friends who play strictly only play typical mainstream games like Final Fantasy, Halo, or GTA. I've helped a lot of them gain new interests in games they wouldn't have ever thought they liked.

    As a gamer I think before you diss a game you should make sure you make an honest attempt to play it first. For all you know the game you diss could be your favorite game, if you weren't so fixed on making dumb assumptions of it!

    Not to mention you should realise you can't like every game, there will be good games you'll absolutley detest, but just because you don't like them it doesn't make them bad games. It just means you have your own taste.

    A true gamer trys a little bit of everything or everything if he or she has the big bucks.

    What i am picking up from this post is alot of Arrogance over nothing.

    M8, everyone feels and thinks differently - you can wrap it up into 2 Categories of people: People who accept your life is pointless and makes the most out of it or people who constantly think about it, cant let go, and sometimes eventually kill themselves. Have fun m8.

    Overall tip: Humble defeats arrogance if you want people to like you

    Look at the thread title: "My Philosophy on Gaming"

    Not trying to bash, just saying, if you're going to post, at least debate with him.

    Yeah...I think ashenshugar missed the whole point of this thread, then summed it up in one sentence, thinking I said the opposite in my "speech" if you will. Also, I'm simply stating my philosophy, and tried to relate it to real-life...but my post got deleted and I have to write it another time. I know you're gonna wonder how it got deleted...so i typed the whole thing up, i clicked on "send" and it said "you are not logged in. You must log in " and that stuff. Writing down something thats already very hard to explain will definately be harder the next time you have to repeat it, when its not all bunched in your mind and its back in pieces again. I don't know about others, but that;s how this "philosophy" works for me. I know everything already, its just remembering it and getting it down into words is very hard. Only you know your mind language.
