I like the comment the one guy made about these things being supernormal stimuli. "Modern food products have divorced flavor from nutrition. In the same way,Video games have divorced thrill from physicality Pornography divorces sexual pleasure from relationships Modern fitness and sports culture divorces fitness and specialized skills from overall movement capacity freeform play and nature. "

Why You Need to Give Up Video Games (and How to Do it) : TheRedPill
Very interesting analysis. "The problem with video games, specifically MMO/pvp/RPG oriented games, is that they provide an outlet for your competitive masculine urges and instincts. The joy of exploration, the need for adventure, the desperate yearning for competition... When you get that through a game, you reach a point of satiety and don't seek it in real life."

OpenEMU - Imgur
OpenEMU is an emulator for old consoles. It is completely free and very easy to use. Not many people know about it so that's why I'm going to help spread the word. Any game from your childhood is available on this thing. Zelda, Mari Kart, Super Smash Bros., Mario 64, etc. ----------- Mac only, but "OpenEmu is Mac only, but RetroArc works cross-platform. http://www.libretro.com/" - also see sub-comment by jstarlen "Download OSX virtual machine, open with VMWare player"

Slashdot | What if Game Graphics Never Aged?
Amazing. I'm not what you would consider a gamer anymore. However, even I can tell those screenshots don't look like a 96k game. . . anyway, read this, it's interesting, but main point: our network has to contain a healthy amount of fragging.

UPDATE 2019-02-22: I only came across this just now because I saw a tag "kkrieger" and thought "What the hell is that?"

Opened it and realized I had no idea how to use tags back in the day. Just updated the tags.
