Why Do We Choose Video Games?

Why do some people choose video games over sports?

Interesting article. I used to play football and all that back when I lived in an apartment complex where I was pretty much friends with every kid there but now we have a house so I just stick to video games.

A football brother.....

What position you play?

Marvman checks in at Free Safety (4.50 - 40 time).

Got several State/HS titles too.....
been playing football since Pop Warner......
nearly became a UH Warrior, if didn't severely dislocate
his right shoulder, and joined the Navy.

Hey,
So Madden, NCAA Football & Basketball, NHL, FIFA, NASCAR,
MLB the Show, Top Spin, Virtua Tennis, Mario Kart, Tiger Woods,
NBA 2K and various other so called "sports based" games,
are more "closer" to books and flims???

Come on man.....


Why Marvman chooses to play "games" than to sports
sometimes?

Well, its mainly because either he's too tired to go to the
gym/stadium/field/court, to play physically.....
Or its raining, and he chooses to stay at home.
Another maybe due to injury (shoulder, knees).

But the main thing is,
Marvman has always dreamed of being in the NFL, Nascar,
NBA; and the only way he can relive those dreams is by
creating his character in the game itself, running thru franchise mode,
get drafted and go from the bench to being a starter then a star.

Sports games are absolute fun fantasy games.


Rockn.

It was at an apartment complex so it wasn't an official game or anything. We didn't have certain positions assigned to us.

Sadly, people are just too lazy to do get active and do something.

Like Wii Sports is CRAP compared to actually playing bowling, baseball, boxing. I mean c'mon get your butt off the couch and go outside for 30 minutes.

Even if you aren't good at it, at least your getting some fresh air and burning off some calories. You feel much better after going outside. Trust me.

It's about as close as I'll get lol. They had good intentions but it's too late for America apparently.
