  1. #1 They are not kids toys! 
    = Star Trek/Battlestar Galactica/Babylon 5

    = All Quiet on the Western Front

    = Pirates of the Caribbean

    Why do people still think video games are children's toys? Today's games have themes to appeal to adults. I think it is unethical to relegate entire mediums to children's entertainment. When comic books first came out they were held to a strict code. Is there still a stigma against people who play them? I know a fighter pilot who plays World of Warcraft.

    Why does the flag have to be black? That sounds very racist to me. That should be banned on account of racism. Fight the power.
    Be Not Afraid.

    I guess that "not kids toys" lets you out of playing them, right? I did believe you are 13 and should be getting ready for the fall school startup rather than exposing us to the ass that you are.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    As a man who spends way to much time of his life playing video games... all I gotta say is OP is dumb.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    You could always try playing the MMLARPG called "IRL" instead of burning up you lifespan on that stuff, kid.
