I do not understand people who make video games but don't play video games. If you program for the sake of technology, why not make a simulation or tech demo?
whenever I play a videogame. I am constantly thinking about how to implement the things that the game uses. And it drives me crazy. cause I cannot just simply enjoy the game
I may not entirely understand where you're coming from, but if I am distracted by something I can't let go, I find it helps to write it down in a spiral bound notebook I keep for the purpose. After writing it down, I know I will come back to it later, so I don't have to worry about forgetting it.
umm, practicing for a sport and playing video-games are very different. sports are good for your health, they circulate the bloodflow get hte heart pumping.
You are deprived if a video game has never elevated your heartrate and made you feel adrenaline.
video-games may work your mind a bit, make you think quickly but too much video-games is bad for your health in an abstract way, because if you spend 1 hour playing video-games that is 1 hour you took from doing something active.
If you're talking about action games, then you're not entirely correct; action games are light exercise. Sure, sports are better for you, but games are still better exercise than reading, watching TV, or doing deskwork. Also, with both hands tied up, you can't munch on potato chips.
