lagi ko naiisip na sayang lang ang oras sa paglalaro ng video games pero sure ako sa sarili ko na effective ito para ma "recharge" ang pagod kong utak.

depende din sa klase ng videogames. iniiwasan ko yung mga games na lalo lang nagbibigay ng stress sa akin.

tbh, hindi ko alintana yung gameplay length, iniiwasan ko din yung mga masyadong open world tulad ng gta sa dami ng side quests. Kung bata-bata ako pwede pa pero pag ganitong meron ka nang obligasyon mahirap din bunuin yung mahabang laruan. Yung ibang games ko na kayang matapos ng 1 week minsan inaabot ng ilang buwan na hindi ko ginagalaw sa dami ng content :sweat:

mag mga rpg ako nilaro na inabot ng mahigit isang taon hehe.

iniiwasan ko na din ang mga open world games pati mga games na medyo complicated ang mga controls at mechanics. minsan kasi hindi ako nakakapag laro ng mahigit 1 month. pag binalikan ko uli yung game na yun maninibago lang ako at pagaaralan ko nanaman. na stress lang ako lalo. mas prefer ko yung may pagka linear lang.

tsaka hindi na rin ako completionist. wala ko paki sa mga trophies na yan, basta natapos ko yung main playthrough at nag enjoy naman ako sa gameplay then dun ko masasabi na sulit ang binili ko.

katulad na lang ng ff13, daming negative about it dahil sa pagka linear nya pero nung nilaro ko naenjoy ko ng sobra...yun nga lang, hindi na ko nag grind, tamang level up lang para makatalo ng final boss :sweat:

Meron namang games na inaabot ako ng more than 100hrs tulad ng monster hunter, kahit na same contents at paulit ulit pero yung challenge at rewards sulit din kaya sarap laruin din nun pag nagpapaantok sa gabi hehe...

A successful game for me eh hours of gameplay and I admit that the trophy hunting does help extend the gameplay. What I hate about gaming mostly is the multiplayer side of gaming, I tend to steer away from games na MP ang mostly reason for playing like COD and Street Fighter V. I like how SFV looks though, I'm just useless when it comes to fighting games.

My work is stressful and gaming ang vent ko, when I'm at home, I don't want to talk about work much. My wife isn't a gamer but she tolerates it as much as possible because she knows that it's my hobby and it keeps me from being restless at home, I got that going which is nice.

Speaking of society, I've met a few people na di aware that they are pirating games. Like yung jailbroken na PS3, it's tough keeping a straight face while they talk about how incredibly cheap gaming on the PS3 is compared sa PS4. I recently had a chat with a friend who watched Kingsglaive so gusto nya bumili ng PS4, sabi ko magastos na hobby and kinwento nya yung "old times" where magdadala lang sya ng harddisk sa recto and for a small price eh may games na.

heh..kung pagastusan lang ng hobby wala na siguro makakadaig sa mga nagasta ko sa photography ko. It's the only other hobby i got besides gaming that actually makes me go out and be with people. Only problem is that some of them, especially pinoys, can really be full of themselves. Akala mo ang gagaling pero nanggagaya lang din naman. So i went back to gaming again pero hindi na kasing full time tulad ng dati.

Mas relax pa ko sa mga games nung bata pa ko, manghihiram ka ng cartridge sa tropa or dadayo ka sa kanila tapos pagtutulungan nyong laruin yung donkey kong country sa snes or even nung uso pa mga laruan ng ps1 tapos dun kayo tatambay magttropa to go up against one another na meron pang tourneys. Dun diretso laro na pero sa panahon ngayon masyado nang cash grab ang mga publishers. Ayoko ng business model na dlc, paying for just a measly item or in sfv's case, buying characters pero yung grind to earn fight money is somewhat a chore which then forces you to cough up actual cash to obtain that character. It's annoying and defeats the purpose of playing games in the first place.

Hindi ba parang bias yun sa video relative to type of game? FPS at COD lang ang example nya.
Paano naman yun mga mahilig sa RPG, Action, Stealth, beat-em-up, fighting, etc? Ano kaya benefits makukuha sa mga yun?
Ok lang sa akin ang FPS games but not really a big fan of those. Minsan sumasakit na rin mata or ulo ko kapag matagal na ako nababad sa FPS. Nahihilo ako.
Mas gusto ko games yun relaxing na. Ayoko na ng masyadong challenges. Pampa-relax ko nga ang gaming kaya ayoko ng mga nakaka-tense na games. Don't like those FPS scary games too.

Still, its a nice video presentation and may it serve as an eye-opener to those who don't understand us, gamers. :agree:

^parehas tayo brad, nung time na nauuso ang ragnarok hindi ako makasabay. Halos lahat ng tropa ko nung college hindi ako sumasama, hindi ko gusto kasi yung idea na kelangan pa bumili ng card para lang malaro yun. They got so addicted they even went so far as spending actual money for rare items - meron kinuwento tropa ko na yung barkada nya gumasta ng 60K for just 2 rare items, this was way back during the first version of ragnarok started getting big. :sweat:

Same...I have a former officemate na every Wednesday e kailangan daw umuwi ng maaga...And nung tinanong ang reason, may "guild wars" daw sila sa Ragnarok every Wed...

Ewan pero hindi ko talaga trip MMORPG...Hanggang FPS & NBA lang ako when it comes to PC gaming..Saka bihirang bihira ako maglaro sa PC...I'm more of a handheld gamer...

malas ng mga late bloomers na gamers ngayon, di nila naranasan yung panahon na isang bala lang ng game solb na. Pwede ka ring manghiram tapos pagtulong tulungan nyo laruin magbabarkada. Solid gamers mga tropa ko nun, meron isang nakakapag speedrun ng resident evil 2 gamit si tofu lang, meron ding iba sobrang competitive sa starcraft pero ako naman sa fighting games lang talaga. Pero common interest naming lahat is starcraft 1, kala namin kami na pinaka magagaling sa area namin, nasira lahat yun nung minsan kinalaban kami ng isang koreanong may-ari ng pinaglalaruan namin sa BF pque, mag isa lang sya tapos 7 kami nilampaso kami lahat :sweat: burado kami lahat sa mapa ng wala pang 1 oras. Pare-pareho kami natahimik nun, di na nga kami bumalik sa laruan na yun after that :lol:

Watched half of the video while I was preparing to go out and most of it is pandering and nonsense. I think most Ted Talks for me eh just jibberjabber.

nakita ko ang top comment na ito sa minecraft music video na ito

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjQQ9JYGgTM
When I was a kid I used to play Minecraft with my brother all the time. We would spend hours and hours just building cities and farms. I built a farm one time and my brother said "nice one man". Last year my brother died. I stopped playing Minecraft and my life was at a standstill. Then one day I heard the Minecraft theme music playing. I could not stop crying. But then it finally hit me. Instead of being sad of Minecraft I should be happy. Every time I play I should remember the good times we had when playing Minecraft. I should think of Minecraft as a celebration of my brother's life, not a deep sorrow. Now I play a lot like I used to play. Whenever I hear this song I smile now and not cry. This is my story of Minecraft, a simple game that brought two brothers together, a game that still connects me to my greatest friend I ever had.

Bonding time din namin ni misis at daughter ko ang gaming.
Hindi naman talaga gamer si misis nung na-meet ko sya noon.
Pero ngayon, sya na minsan ang nagsasabi sa akin kung ano gusto nya laruin.
Type nya yun co-op games at yun hindi masyadong ma-action na laro.
