@medacris: My father doesn't really understand why I enjoy video games as much as I do either. However, the thing I have found best is to respect his opinion.

He has most definitely lived longer than you have and believes that playing games is a waste of time on this earth.

Honestly, logic dictates that he is probably right. Living life actively i.e not sitting in one position exploring another world, may actually be pretty awesome.

But I really like video games.....like alot. So I try and balance. I throw myself into something HE spends his time doing, with the same level of enthusiasm I carry when I jump into a new game. All in hopes of easing the thought in his mind that says, "what is my son doing with his life."

And when I have a son, I'm going to spend time doing whatever it is my son wants to do. <3

I had a similar experience to yours in that my memories of Morrowind are vivid.

I don't think I'd ever encountered a game like it before putting it in my Xbox, and I'm not even sure what got me to purchase it - I think I just really enjoyed character creation tools at the time and saw that it had one. I just backspaced through about a paragraph of why I think Morrowinds atmosphere was so "heavy."

Loved reading your recollection! Great writing.

I thought it was great. Beautiful, with a great story. Best one since Wind Waker.

God damn I really enjoyed Black Flag. Here's hoping Unity delivers too.

I'm replaying AC II right now and I'm pleasantly surprised at how it holds up.

Unfortunately it's a scam.

This bums me out. This bums me out a whole lot.

Rock on man! Living a healthy life is something I think everyone would like to do, as it leads to good moods and a longer lifespan.

But it takes hard work and diligence to stick to it, so congrats on kickin' ass duder.

Oh, and I don't know if it's unhealthy - I'd say the obvious answer is no, but under certain conditions I could see someone hurting themselves.

Is this another one of those 'I don't like how content has changed on Giant Bomb' threads in disguise? Isn't it obvious? Brad and the rest of the GB crew only exists inside of the videos we watch, when they are not acting out the roles we know and love they power down and get plugged back into the mainframe #followthemoney #skynet

Goddammit that's pretty good.

What are your specs? Curious if they're comparable to mine.

Me too. I'm still running my 570 and would love to know if holds up.
