Nerds dissing nerds... Kind of cancels itself out.

Acquiescence3134d ago

It's a nerd dissing a nerd who has reached 500,000 gamerpoints.

Big difference between the two.

Imagine the crap he had to wade through to get that gamerscore.

"Congratulations! …on wasting several years of your life in the pursuit of a completely futile goal."

couldn't the same argument be made against sports? what real lasting value comes from sports entertainment?

billabong19853134d ago

How about the lasting value of regular exercise?

nightfallinicedearth3134d ago

Hmm not really. Playing sports makes you stay fit, active, could lead to more. professional soccer, football, basketball etc players make millions. Reallisticly, how much money can be made as a 'professional gamer'? Unless you're a developer/publisher of course. These guys that are 'journalists'(HA!) guarantee they don't clear 15,000 a year. Even that's a stretch.

Whats the lasting value of anything?

n to the b3134d ago

was waiting for that. sure the athletes benefit. but I know so many unfit SPECTATORS that are "wasting several years of your life in the pursuit of a completely futile goal."

n to the b3134d ago (Edited 3134d ago )

you could maybe say at 500,000+ gamerscore it's going too far. I just object to the idea of dismissing video gaming out of hand as being a less worthwhile pusuit than some of these other hobbies.

EDIT: oh and another way of looking at it: sports = physical exercise, gaming = cerebral exercise.

EDIT2: in fact the 1st definition for 'exercise' that pops up on dictionary.reference.com is: "bodily or mental exertion, esp. for the sake of training or improvement of health"

but I really do admire dedication like that.

Jaybad543134d ago

The only thing he is dedicated to is not getting a job

FordGTGuy3134d ago

As if he had no job he would not be able to afford to purchase the games over the last 6 years.

Rauland3134d ago

He must be in one of those Modern Countries that pay you for being unemployed so you don't starve to death and steal to survive and make trouble.

or as I mentioned under another article about this guy, it's possible he's loaded ($). or it's possible he's supported by permanent disability or something.

FordGTGuy3133d ago (Edited 3133d ago )

That he has a job.....

Your not buying 20,000 pounds worth of games in 5 years on disability.

The disagrees on my original statement just goes to show the level of stupidity on this website.

As long as the dude had fun it was time well spent. Life is too short and muddled down with bullshit to not do something if you enjoy it.
