What is the difference?
But...hang on...wait one second! Hadn't she just spent $500 on two new tyers for her motorbike? The one that only gets ridden every 3 or 4 weekends and while camping on school holidays? I confronted her with this and she replied:
"That's different! Motorbike riding is a family activity that we all enjoy. We do it for relaxation and to have fun"
I replied..but that's why I game..it's why my kids game...it's why WE game. She looked at me as if I'd sprouted horns and said:
Surely you're not trying to say that you gaming is the same as my family riding our bikes?!
But that is EXACTLY what I'm saying. Why is it so hard for people to understand? Is it because we game inside? Is it because it requires technology? Why is it that gaming is frowned upon as a legitimate recreational activity?
