Really, though, we're social beings, so it's only natural that we enjoy having good conversations about our favorite games. Would you really want it to be the other way around?
I can't relate to this _at all_; it seems retarded. Lemme tell you, I only spoke about games with my friends when we couldn't _play_ them (i.e., at school/church/sport/whatever).
Who the hell sat in front of their Amiga and talked about Speedball 2 with their friend when it was there to be _played_?
and whoever thought talking about it instead of playing it was more _fun_?
man, were/are you a gamer or a mere human?
I swear some ppl really baffle me!
(BTW, gaming is not an anti-social activity - who are these nubs!? If my best friend were resurrected today, we'd be playing speedball, not talking about his exp in the fuckin afterlife)
