    If you ask me (and nobody is), they're targeting the wrong habit. The most detrimental electronic addiction is phone usage, and social media more than gaming.Phones provide instant, and more or less c...

    Disappointed. Starfield is for next generation consoles so, what, 2-3 years away? And Elder Scrolls 6 is after that. No single player ES for this generation at all.Fallout 76...maybe...need to see mor...

    @sethmode: Well, okay, see, Drew was sensible about it. In my memory, Jeff was pretty negative on the podcast which got my undies in a bunch. I've mostly unbunched them now though.

  • imchardo posted a message in the forum topic metacritic score vs user score. on the General Discussion board

    I mean, I spend time on Giant Bomb because I value a professional opinion about the games that intrigue me. So yeah, I look at Metacritic, then jump to the reviews by the critics I like most. Metacrit...

  • imchardo posted a message in the forum topic What is your IRL equipment loadout?. on the Off-Topic board

    Imma skip past the basic loadout to just offer this old guy advice - consider carrying a good-sized pocket knife in lieu of a multi-tool. I haven't found much of real utility in a little multi-tool, b...

  • imchardo posted a message in the forum topic What's the longest you've had to go without gaming?. on the General Discussion board

    This is one I think I could jump in on. I had a 20 year gap (more or less). Back in the day, when I graduated college and got a job, I bought both a SNES and a Genesis and played them into the ground....

  • imchardo posted a message in the forum topic How did you celebrate your 30th birthday?. on the Off-Topic board

    I'm a little disturbed to discover I have absolutely no memory of what I did for my 30th birthday. Probably nothing at all. My ex and I were married just weeks after, so we were distracted, I suppose....

    Warms my heart to see so many others like me posting here. I'm 53, love video games, and use our PS4 and Switch *far* more than my kids (aged 11, 13, 16, and 20) do.

    I agree strongly with those who have recommended turning the tv/pc off an hour or more before bed.Lie down in bed and read. Regardless of whether you find reading enjoyable or not. Just lie down comfo...

    I like that idea :-) Also a show where, each episode, he's taken to a different restaurant and forced to eat something repulsive to him.

  • imchardo posted a message in the forum topic Are pizzas pies?. on the Pizza board

    Pizza is, by strict Merriam-Webster definition, a pie. I looked it up (see how hard I'm working today?) I still voted false though, just because that's BS and I refuse to acknowledge it.
