2. Broad-brush statements aren't allowed in GD?
That's the secret? Also, IBTL.

4. It isn't wise to question the moderators' decisions...Updated at 3:43 PM
This thread is likely to be locked as well...

Just sayin'...

9. Well, I LOVE the mods....but some things REALLY NEED to be discussed, imvho.
A LOT of things really need to be discussed out in the open....once and for all. *Cleansing*, and all of that 'good stuff'!

8. It should have been. This one, too.
Edited on Sat Mar-07-09 10:18 PM by TexasObserver
It was a dumb thread, a stupid generalization, and you're apparently clueless about the rules here.

You made and hold a nasty stereotype about today's young men. Get over it.

15. I just love the new Baseball Mogul 2009.
I think some of the outfielders ratings are a little high, but over a 162 game simulated schedule it comes close to working out in the end.

Do you have any daughters around 35? Can I meet them? Are they great ticklers?

Also, does she like Torii Hunter?

Thanks,

I'll go do my best to live up to your standards now. Since that is really what I am living for.

19. It's probably better than some of the activities they might partake in these days.
People used to sit around and play monopoly. Then it was D & D. Now they play video games. What's the big fucking deal?

Continuation of a broad brush smear and general douchebaggery is against DU rules.

23. Why do you oppose equality of misery between the sexes?
The video game players win and guys looking for dates can feel better about women having the same difficulty as they.

29. That's because it's sexist and a broadbrush smear. It's also full of shit, but if threads got locked
for that alone, there'd be tumbleweeds blowing through GD.

30. I play video games all the time
I also have a college degree and a job. Whats your point?

Just so you know, men aren't interested in women who are judgmental and controlling anymore than women are into men who are lazy and apathetic.

31. Hah, my 30 something girlfriend does nothing but play video games
I phoned her this afternoon and she had been playing the new biker gang grand theft auto for 15 hours straight.

It really doesn't bother me,

32. You just don't know where to look.
My oldest, 25, a working designer, and his wife just had a baby and bought a house yet sometimes still play videogames together, and my youngest (21, single) who's a mountain bike mechanic at a ski/mountain bike shop and is now on a cross-country mountain bike tour to MOAB and Sedona and also plays bass in a bluegrass band, would beg to differ with the notion that all they do is play videogames.
