    Like everything in life. Things should be taken in moderation.

    She sounds like an uptight bitch. She indeed should be zerg rushed.

    Got to the 6th second before I had to downvote. Everything used in excessive amounts has negative side effects.

    She's stupid and that video is stupid.

    Same thing could be said about sports, or drinking, or banging your face into a wall. If you do it 20 hours a day your social life will decline. If you do it 2-3 hours a day you'll be just fine.

    Given my reclusive and introverted nature, video games and digital-social interactions have done wonders to expand my social life.

    Video games have provided me with far more entertainment than a "social life" ever did (not counting gaming friends, of course.)

    So my thoughts more or less agree with the like/dislike ratio on the video.

    I wouldnt take anything she said seriously, shes crazy. There's an 11 minute video of her talking about how lady gaga is working for the devil.

    Maybe some people aren't interested in a social life.

    Doing anything in excess is bad for your social life. It's not the games, its the amount of time put into them.

    If a video game developer removed tumors from players, they'd whine about nerfing their loss in weight and access to radiation powers. -Cracked.com

    I'm old and scared of new things, and upset that men aren't spending all their money on me.

    Computer games are the main reason I h ave a social life. You think games ruin it? Try things like art or books; that shit will destroy you if you're a reclusive introvert. At least most games these days, by their online, multiplayer, or community-oriented nature, heavily encourage socializing to get the most out of them.

    I got to the part where she says that people who play games can't discern fantasy from reality before I downvoted. I really can't be bothered to sit through minutes of her if that is the sort of drivel she'll be 'educating' me with.

    I have friends in the US for playing "Computer Games"... that woman point is invalid in all ways...

    Oh, the irony.

    Someone who believes in god/heaven is telling us we don't get an afterlife and we don't respawn like in video games... but somehow we are the ones that can't tell the difference´╗┐ between fantasy and reality. =/
