@ToTheSun!

I did not expect that. More something like:

"What kind of brain desease do you have that makes your mind dizzy from games?"

Has it finally become common sense amongst gamers, that video games are a media that smacks your mind till its mousse ?

Its probably just amongst the users of this forum

No. I meant that clearing your mind from an addictive game you might be playing right now is a good idea before classes start because one needs to ace shit. Games are great, but they can be a distraction when it's time to study.

Games are great, but they can be a distraction when it's time to study.

Thus the only sensible choice is to do your research and studies on games :). Likely going to do my bachelor and master thesis on something gaming-related.

Some kind of an outing - games dizzy my mind.

When I play too much, I have problems in communication by needing long to think what to say and difficulties to find the words for it. Together with difficulties in keeping attention at something somebody says and giving a proper answer to it. And the worst thing is, I loose any sensibility what might offend people. Basic communication stuff.

Probably has sth to do with overconsumption of media.

Last year I went on a fast on gaming for 4 weeks and it got considerably better. I would say cured. But when I play 1h every day for one week, I start to see the old symptoms peep out a little.

That makes me sad. I like games. So many fun and inspiring moments.

bad attitude and his frustration.

I watched the "response" first and then his initial video, but I thought if I share, then it should be in chronological order. If anything then the 2nd is more watch-worthy (? is that a word ?)

If anything, gaming at that amount should *help* with your concentration and communication. Perhaps the adrenaline is too much? Do you get super hyped up when you play? Perhaps lack of sleep? Do you stay up late gaming?

ARE5, what Sun said. Gaming is good - addiction is bad and fucks up the brain and person in a multitude of ways.

For that gaming is good, there's several lines of scientific evidence. Here is decent popularization from the leading researcher on this topic: Daphne Bavelier: Your brain on video games | TED Talk | TED.com

It is worth noting that even if gaming improves many (low-level) cognitive skills, time spent gaming is negatively correlated with academic success.

For that addiction is bad, everyone knows it already. Neurobiologically gaming addiction is exactly the same addiction as alcohol or drug addiction, same molecules, cells, circuits, behavioral effects and consequences.
