Games – a kind of emotional therapy?

Posted on Mar 5, 2012 in Browser Games, Online Games, Skill Games

The pastor of a small parish in Kansas had encouraged believers to buy consoles for their children. After that he had opened consoles shop. It offered a modern Nintendo equipment in promotional and very attractive prices. It attracted attention of the local police – they were suspecting that all this equipment come from some illegal sources. Finally, it turned out that they were totally legal and their low price was because pastor covered significant cost of every console. Why he made it? As he said “Our research shows that teens who spend a lot of time playing any kind of games (browser games, skill games, racing games etc.), are less likely to get pregnant”.
Probably, Ogyen Trinley Dorje (Lama Karampa), a Buddhist and one of China’s most respected religious leaders would agree with him. This friendly, 24-year-old guy
has recently visited India, where he gave a lecture about the dangers of the modern world. What could be surprising, he spoke very positively about games: “I see it as a kind of the emotional therapy. When someone is full of negative feelings and thoughts should reach for computer games, they help to reduce internal tension and get rid of the negative emotions”.

Bloody Sunday

Posted on Mar 5, 2012 in Skill Games

There will be a day, when you decide to clean up your computer (in professional language it is called “formatting” – so simply throwing away all your data) and believe me, brothers and sisters, you will regret this! Unfortunately I had this yesterday. “Why?”-You may ask. Oh, that is simple – my computer didn’t want to play online browser games, so it just turned off. I am great opponent of formatting (because it costs a lot of time and nerves), but windows blue screen beyond any doubt herald  that it was a time. So I deleted all my appointments, I took my original windows dvd, and I put it in. Of course I forgot that I should change input device in BIOS, and it took me twenty minutes to realize that. When I checked how to do this in my cell browser, I was pretty irritated. Maybe that was the reason why I, not on purpose, formatted not only C: partition, but also the one with all my videos, music and skill games – I am not affraid of ACTA any more! After one and half minutes i had my windows installed. Not in my homeland’s language, without any drivers and programmes, but it was there. The worst part started then! You probably undarstand my pain – I gathered all the famous online browser games pages, and others, all the contacts, all the bars etc. Reconstruction took me like four hours, and it is still not the same as it was before. My conclusion is that nobody like changes, but fortunately skill games are also available on online browser games portals – lucky me:)
