Video Games are killing us, literally.

Gamer culture has become more and more an accepted part of society. And mind you, this is a society that 60 years ago found entertainment in physical activity and exposure to the world around them, not an x-reality many people today find themselves in. No longer do people need to physically move to travel or run around in another reality, making it much easier for a gamer to lose out on crucial exercise. An as most people know, this leads numerous health problems.

Video Games are killing us, socially.

This gaming world many find themselves in gives people a place to explore without consequence  Many times, these people are using avatars (Beth Coleman) they prefer to their actual selves, leaving many with self esteem issues with themselves in their own reality. Many of these gamers then find themselves with a lack of social skills because they’d rather confront someone on a screen than in their real body, in the real world.

Video games are killing us, mentally.

The TED presentation given to us suggested that video games teach skills that cna solve the world’s problems. They also suggested that increasing time playing video games would benefit the world. But the fact is, while people are trying to figure out the world’s problems for 8 hours a day, they could be going out into the world and changing the world, not just thinking about the problems. These suggested video games are simply counter intuitive, as they promote too much contemplation and not enough action.

Me Manifesto (Blog 10)


Within the Hacker manifesto, the freedom and power seemed that hackers are being held back by others around them. To a hacker, it appears that they actually do have a lot of power and a good amount of freedom as well, “a door opened to a world…” (Mentor Paragraph 6). Whereas in the Cyborg Manifesto, it seemed that femine roles within games and in other areas are stereotyped majorly. That women don’t have that much freedom or power because of the stereotypes by males.

Gamer Manifesto:
You may call me a cheat or a hacker.

However I am not either.

I am the best there is and I set out to be the best in every game I play.

Whether its racing, football, or Call of Duty, I strive to be the best there is. Shall I fail then I get back up and go harder and faster than before.

I will not be put down and out, I will come back and beat who ever has beaten me ten fold.

I know everything there is within the game I play, so much that I am made out to be a cheater, yet I do not use any cheats.

If you question me thats fine, but I will still win whether you like it or not.

I am an ultimate gamer, set out to be the best there is, striving to know everything about a game.

Love me or hate me that is fine. But this is my manifesto as a gamer.

Best there is and best there ever will be.
