I stay active while not playing games, if you don`t you deserve all the wierd looks and lack of sex that you get.

Derekvinyard132552d ago

zeeshan8102552d ago

Users who disagree with you are fat. I workout everyday and I play video games.

Jesus, another one of these? Playing video games does not make you fat. It's the lack of exercise that makes you fat. Don't blame the games people. Blame the parents who don't give a fuck.

Pintheshadows2552d ago

It is healthier than eating cake 24/7.

Soldierone2552d ago

And at that age its THEIR CHOICE to do so. If they are too stupid to get up and move around why should we care...

thrasherv32552d ago

@xTruthx: And why do you think they "stay" playing games 24/7? Old habits die hard.

What about game cases? Or the whole console?

Also how frelling old is that picture? Are they implying those kids are now fat?

@sidar, cardboard tastes better than Weetabix.

ChickeyCantor2552d ago

Do you eat the cereal box?
Wth is wrong with you.

GodofSackboy2552d ago

Not those mini-chocolate Weetabix things, I devour them twice a day at least!

Wolfmoonstrike2552d ago

Talk about an expensive meal. Jeez, and I thought steak priced were getting bad.

Tigerfist2552d ago (Edited 2552d ago )

How about "Why going to work and sitting at the desk all day makes you fat." article? It's blatantly obvious...

SSKILLZ2552d ago
