Instead of your new hobbie lets say that you picked up gambling. Lets say you eventually lose 60,000 dollars over seven months. If you had kept playing MMOs you might have never gambled. In this case MMOs might be life saving.

Anyone else ever feel the same way?

 

I feel the time i spent in mmorpgs is better spent than the time i spent watching TV before mmorpgs - although not as good as some of the other alternatives. However most of those better alternatives e.g. hiking, i *couldn't* do most of the time anyway e.g. worknights, so the best comparison is with things like TV.

I've heard this excuse many times back when I used to PT clients.

I run through the snow at -10C and ride through thunder storms or till -5C if no ice on my GSXR750. Don't be so soft.

EVERYTHING is just waste of your time ...

 

go kill yourself

 

Now for real ... almost everything is waste of your time, BUT if you enjoy it and it makes you happy thats all what matters :) NO ONE can ever say that playing mmorpgs, games or whatever is less meaningfull that going out with your friends or whaterver. All comes to you and what you enjoy more :)

everything is a waste of time.

your live consists of time you waste.

 

actually even doing stuff in RL is a waste of time.

earning money? waste of time.

life is meaningless. it's only meaning is to waste your time. get used to it.

 

you will waste your time till you ran out of it, then you die. no more time to waste...

 

 

 

so, i suggest do what is fun to you while wasting your time.

If nihilism was a valid philisophy then nihilism wouldn't matter, thus I can safely reject it from consideration and embrace the essential value of my time.

Being a waste of time is why it is called a hobby, and not a job.

Many would argue that their job is a waste of time, though...heh.

Nope you are wrong. Life is a waste of time and so is everything you do. Everything you do is worthless anyway when you die so do whatever you want before you die.

mmo's were worth the effort back when people were more social animals that weren't turned off by teamwork to accomplish things......it's kinda why sandboxes don't work in the states and why so many mmos are at their core solo experiences...it's a real shame

so say we all

Buddy, you have to realize that there is nothing to gain from play mmos or video games. Well technically there is, such as friends and perhaps some knowledge that you wouldn't think of, for such I learnt how to socialize from mmos, I learnt how to trade, or work as a team mates, also decision making.

Mmos and video games is just another entertainment type, it's like reading a book but without imagination but its more interactive.

You don't see anyone gaining anything from watching a TV/Movies or reading a book, except the message implemented in it. It is the same as that.

You live only once....at the end of your life just make sure you have done all the things you wanted to do.
Be it gaming / traveling / collecting / vacations / whatever flows your boat.
In the end when you die you got nothing to show for anyway.
you will be burried or burned and no1 will remember you.

So live life the way you want it and make sure to have fun :)

I guess if you seek some kind of tangible, real world benefit from playing games, it would indeed be a waste of time. I did not know that games provided this kind of reward, so I never sought that out from my games.

If it is a hobby for a player and all they seek is enjoyment and pleasure for a little while and find it playing games, I don't think that is a waste of time for them.

- Al

Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

You....are just figuring this out now?

All games are a massive waste of time, lol. There's a reason it's called a pass-time. It's something people do to pass the time. The only games that are not wastes of time are those that either earn you some kind of real life tangible reward (ie. money), or educate you.
