    Is there any particular reason why gamers tend to be such dysfunctional people?

    I mean I enjoy video games don't get me wrong but I could never really relate to any of these gamers, so many of them are just so... off. I hardly ever see people who get so pissy over such stupid chit all the time.

    Burnt out dopamine receptors. If they gamed while young, which basically they all did, the dopamine reduces frontal lobe development. Similar to using drugs while the brain is growing.

    Imo... Not all of them..but lots of them are phaggot losers that reach to video games for "easy wins" cause they cant get them irl

    Then they build up a false ego thats makes them think theyre cool but its not set in reality, only in the game(s)

    I feel bad for some of them

    Sitting all day with poor posture and not lifting to counterbalance it -> fukd hormones and neurotransmitters

    Poor posture = lower testosterone, hypothyroidism, low serotonin

    Basically your body becomes a cocktail of molecules telling you you’re a tired, angry, dumb, low status phaggot

    Im not gonna go into the mechanisms of baseball cause that will get lost on people

    But i like when i come home from like a 12 hour work day. And want to play baseball

    Then i play online to play a human and not the cpu. And then like 2 minutes in i realize it was the worst mistake of my life cause some phaggot on the other end has been playing 17 hours that day and hes pulling every fuken thing possible to win by playing cheap

    And i have to sit there, or quit, with some dude pulling all this chit on a fuken video game

    Then you message them like "calm the fuk down pal, i just want to play baseball" and then theyre like "welcome to the show kid"," this company has seen my video game skills and is flying out me out to this major city to see my skills and pay me"

    I have a friend from college. He went to school with us for English but never graduated. He lives at home 5 years later and is on Playstation pretty much all day everyday. He does not work. He just plays video games and smokes. This doesn't answer OP's question but just holy chit at the level of dysfunction.

    too much dopamine which desensitizes the receptors

    so socializing, going out etc, becomes boring to them because their dopamine receptors are fried

    I don't buy the 'dopamine' argument.

    In my opinion, people who are very serious about gaming, are usually people who haven't got much else going on in their life. I know periods where i've taken gaming seriously have been chit periods of my life where gaming is some form of escape. So with this in mind, it isn't that gaming makes people dysfunctional, it's that gaming attracts dysfunctional people because it's an activity you can do by yourself to escape your chitty existence, without friends or any kind of social interaction.

    No responsibilities, no purpose, no physical activity, no experience in real life social situations. These are the main ones, there are many more lol. I used play a lot. One thing is for sure, my kids won't play video games. If you want to play games, play sports ffs.

    It's the other way around.

    They start with being dysfunctional.
    Then gaming.
    And then they get to be good at it as they do it in their own time.


    In the end gamers aren't dysfunctional. They just don't synchronise well with others. Their timing is different.

    No, it is extrapolation of a chemical drug addiction model to anything certain groups people don't like eg. porn, games to make a pseudoscience argument.

    If this was true anything pleasurable would cause this issue which is obviously false.

    Also, neuroplasticity:

    the ability of the brain to form and reorganize synaptic connections, especially in response to learning or experience or following injury.
    "neuroplasticity offers real hope to everyone from stroke victims to dyslexics"
    He might be right from a development perspective - so it could cause issues in that specific moment - however, it wouldnt be a permanent issue and is fixable. And thats the key takeaway

    Games today arent the games of 10+ years ago.

    The addictive psychological aspects have been perfected.

    If you have constant, instant gratification, (" KILL + 5 KILL +10) it reduces your ability to see through long, trudging goals.

    Theyre basically addicts in withdrawl when they are in normal society.

    In other words, they're dysfunctional.

    People with no lives tend to get sucked into fantasy worlds.

    I like video games, too, but not as a surrogate for a real life.

    Yeah it's true that gamers weren't always terrible, it seems like they used to be a lot cooler and more relaxed. It's kind of just this latest new generation of gamers that sucks so badly.
