Nope, I stay away from MMO's.  I get sucked in too easily.

Any one on here still play SWTOR and know of a good atheist friendly guild?

When of my arguments against the moral argument for God, is to compare morality to good strategies in games. Obviously when trying this one does not want to imply life is just a game. However ontologically I reckon the two do have the same status. Has anyone else thought of this and or tried it.

I got sick of waiting for a US release, and downloaded the Japanese version of Phantasy Star Online 2...and am absolutely loving it! :) Still considering ESO as well though.

Sounds boring. My kid (4th grade) and I blow up tanks together, cut heads off zombies, and chainsaw apart our enemies with ruthless abandon. Through these actions he's learned the importance of teamwork, perseverance, and how to not treat people like video game pixels. In other words; he's got a firm grasp on reality and doesn't like boring games.

Hi... I'm hoping a few of you can share some game recommendations:

I read about a study showing that kids playing video games over and over learn thought and behavior patterns that carry over into real life: "... with violent games -- you practice being vigilant for enemies, practice thinking that it's acceptable to respond aggressively to provocation..."

(The study specifically looked at third- through eighth-graders, not adults who happen to enjoy first-person shooters.)

"However, that does not mean all games are bad and that children will only develop bad habits.... prosocial media -- video games, movies or TV shows that portray helpful, caring and cooperative behaviors -- positively influence behavior regardless of culture."

If you can recommend any such "prosocial" video games, where characters cooperate and help each other (but not with a violent goal such as fighting a war), it would be good to reply to the post about video games in Parenting Little Heathens. Thanks!
