You make lots of assumptions Small Fry. You have zero clue who I am - hell, you thought I was that kook from San Clemente who spits on moms.

Keep telling yourself how bitchin you are - I just see an astronomical post count which proves you don't have as rad a life as you think you do.

In regards to gaming, I'm typically not for kids being indoors and sedentary, but I also read top gamers making upwards of $200k. I've also read that as people get older, gaming helps fight off dementia/Alzheimer's and also helps with hand-eye coordination. I wouldn't rule out getting a console at some point in my later years.

I've been using this handle 14 years.

I'm fine with my post count.

I also surf more than you. A lot more.

And I go on more surf trips than you.

Have more hobbies than you.

Etc.

Gaming def helps with prob solving skills along with the obvious hand eye coordination.

My Mom was convinced Atari was started by the military

we limit our kid pretty heavily, so he's a light gamer - no xbox, playstation etc - pc only. i'd be open to more computer time if he were more inclined to understand the technical side - hardware, software etc - because there's value in understanding how it all works and what to do when it doesn't.. but if he only wants to point and click, then it's gonna stay light.

I refused to pay a penny for anything video game related. I compromised with the wife and my son had to pay for a console on his own. Thankfully he's pretty much over it.

Ok in all honesty sorry for the highjack and I am done. I just have strong feelings about the subject.
this. I eventually found forums telling me how to pirate games and emulators.

I got hooked on the forums, not the games.

What’s so great about PC games that you dont just get a PlayStation or XBox?
You lose the ability to have your rig become obsolete every other week. That's the glass half empty. Optimistics will say they can upgrade their rigs to a more powerful version every other week.

I learned how to speak english by playing video games. My son already plays and he's 5. I would love to take advice on how to raise him, but I would need to receive those checks to pay for his bills first.

Are PC games “better“ and or don’t you get games/dlc first for PC?

I swore off video games after GTA San Andreas but man does RDR look fun

There are games best played with a mouse and keyboard. Don't get me wrong, I would love to always have an over the top PC in the house, but unfortunately I don't sh!t money. Keep in mind anything that seems expensive in the US is 3x the price in Brazil.

I’ve heard Brazil is crazy expensive. If you’re ever planning on returning to the Los Angeles, pm me. If you’d be willing to meet up in your country with a Peruvian associate of mine and help bring some family heirlooms to his grandmothers in Compton he’d compensate you very handsomely.

Also I don’t know if you’d be interested but I still have a lot of contacts in the industry who are always looking for fresh young faces especially from foreign countries. Would you feel comfortable taking your shirt off in front of the camera?

Not sure the the camera would feel comfortable with a shirtless brukuns. But good to know they are looking for fresh young faces, I'll let you know if I see any.

As for bringing the family Heirlooms, I only feel comfortable transporting drugs, so not sure if that would work. I might go back to LA in 2023 or 24, we need to get my son a Visa and the wait is looooooooooooooong.

Play Robotron 2084 here (click me). Before clicking on things, read the reviews for instructions on how to play on a keyboard.
That game is probably the most keyboard UNfriendly game out there. :roflmao:


Every once in a while I go on a nostalgia kick. This is a good site for that: https://www.retrogames.cc/arcade-games

Then I realize I am no better at Ghosts n Goblins than I was 35 years ago and that's that. :roflmao:
