I kinda dissapointed, nowadays people usually able to spend more time on games than study, work or good activities. Its a sad thread that game publisheres and sometimes developers are making multiplayer games, perticularly Battlefield 3, Halo series, Call of Duty series that have addictive multiplayer reward for playing as long as one can.
I personally never do that, but even with less time playing one game does not degrade my skill somewhat. Surprisingly, despite my rank is poor, I still kill more guys than your average joe who spent 40++ hour on Call of Duty Modern Warfare. I felt that its not long hours, its just predicting your enemies likely movement and take cheap shot rather than go all gun blazing.
This is also why presently I prefer a RTS games over any general FPS, a match that is not too short, not too long and never about ranking, everyone gets the same pool of army and ability is up to one who skilled to win a game.
Sadly people who felt other that advice them not to waste too much time on playing games are called, noob, losers, shut the **** up, nerd, bravado etc, tell me why having a high rank and equipped with a high precision weapon, only to be killed by somebody who has low ranked and armed with cheap sub-machine gun, wasting so much time yet gain absolutely nothing, look at Call of Duty, first Modern Warfare, can you transfer your ranked to Modern Warfare 2 or Balck Ops, Nooo, can you use the same weapon previous game own, no, are you willing to spend on DLC despite a new Balck Ops 2 being announced, why YES, gamers in US are too rich and have too much free time.
Well it is up to them to decide their future, non of my buisness, for me a game remain a game and it should be a system that we learn and enjoy, not spent on day grind like a RPG, only that it last a freaking lot longer..... At least JRPG can be easily given up at one point, but FPS, one gets to deep, better sink with that ship!
