How To Play Video Games Without Going Bad

If you have been alive here on planet Earth for the last (oh, I don't know) decade or so, then you know that there have been and continue to be naysayers who claim that video games will ruin you.

The intellectual arguments that they have put forth allege that the games are "distracting," "expensive" and can become "addictive." (Wow.) Jon Henshaw, M.A., from writes that the wasted hours could be "harmful to relationships" and even "rob you of real life experiences."

Just as ardently, however - if not more so - proponents of game play have asserted the benefits of the sport, especially in the fantasy/role-playing genre.

In an online article entitled, "The Good Things About Video Games," the Media Awareness Network says gaming provides a fun and social form of entertainment where kids can become "comfortable with technology" while reinforcing "teamwork and cooperation when played with others."

While both of these groups probably have a point ("too much of a good thing can be bad" and "see the good in every bad situation"), I think moderation is key.

I think PC games are fun if they are in a genre I like. And they are challenging. They challenge my reflexes and hand-eye coordination as well as my math and reasoning skills.

If I spend about two hours a day, I find that I am more relaxed, feel better about myself (especially if I do well) and am better able to concentrate.

If I, however, spend less time, I struggle with restlessness and boredom. And, conversely, spending too much time leaves me feeling drained (and I usually start making a lot of really dumb mistakes).

But the thing that really irritates me is that many times these anti-gaming groups say that all video games are bad - "phooey."

That simply is not true. While it may be true of teen games like Warcraft, how could it possibly apply to Mario or Zelda? When anti-gaming zealots make such ridiculous claims, they lose any hint of credibility and my attention (and my dad's, too - he grew up on Mario)!

My advice: Set reasonable boundaries. It is no different from television. You would look stunned if your neighbors just threw out all their television sets because they did not like one of the channels.

Establish an acceptable amount of daily or weekly play, a rating or series within a genre and the location of your gaming unit (i.e., in the family room). That way everybody - parents, teacher and you - is winner!

My Favorite Wii Games

The Nintendo Wii is a state of the art video game system which uses motion sensing technology. Because of this unique feature, most of the games that are played on the Nintendo Wii system are also unique in nature. In this article, I will be highlighting some of the Wii games that I simply love.

One of the more popular games for the Nintendo Wii is the Wii fit game. This game is about keeping your body fit though the use of guided exercises. Before you start, you would have to use the balancing board included in the game to allow the program to take and keep track of your weight. The Wii balancing board can also be used for other activities within the game. For example, there is this concentration game where you are supposed to sit down cross legged on the board and concentrate on a flickering candle for a certain amount of time. The balancing board can also be used to play a tightrope game where you have to get from one rooftop to another, overhanging the streets below! Then there is also another game where you use the board to get a ball though holes within many platforms.

Another Wii game which I like is Wii sports. Wii sports has been such a success that it has released a sequel known as Wii sports resorts. While Wii fit is about keeping your body fit and playing around with the Wii balancing board, Wii sports is about playing all kinds of sports using the Wii motion controller. For example, your Wii remote transforms into a boat padded as you play in a boating race. Play against other players or try to beat your best timings in cooperative modes. Then there are also other sports to play such as archery or even table tennis! All this can be done simply by using your Wii remote otherwise known as the Wii-mote in creative ways!

Wii Sports

I am sure there are plenty of fun Wii games out there and there will be at least a few which you will appreciate and love to play. Check out the plenty of cheap games for the Nintendo Wii that are available online. If you are lucky you will even be able to find some cheap Wii games sale and end up with plenty of new and fun Wii games to play with at home.

The Most Common Issues That Arise With Your PS3 Console

In its early days, the PS3 was a console that came with a few small issues. As is normal when you include an extremely powerful processor in a small space along with an extremely powerful graphics card, the amount of heat that is generated internally can cause issues with crucial parts, and other errors. Most issues can be fixed by using your own reliable PS3 repair guide, however it is worth knowing how severe certain issues are, and what they mean before you jump the gun and start trying to repair your own console.

The Yellow Light Of Death

This is one of the most common faults with the PS3 console, and has in the past caused many headaches, not only with console owners, but with Sony's warranty repair department which is quite often flooded with consoled that have the notorious flashing yellow light issue. Although Sony will not clarify in great detail what causes the flashing yellow light issue, it is widely believed that it may be to do with overheating of the graphics card, which results in solder becoming soft on the motherboard, and wires coming loose. For most people who are handy with a soldering iron, this is a very simple fix.

The Red Light Of Death

Much like the yellow light error, the red light issue tends to relate either to overheating, or more commonly, it relates to issues with your hard drive. Understandably, this can result in loss of data, however using an eSATA cable, you will be able to remove and hot connect the hard disk to your home computer, and attempt any repairs yourself. Often, this does result in the need to install a new hard disk, which is quite easy to do at home, without the need to rely on a warranty repair from Sony.

Jammed Disk Issue

Sometimes through an internal fault, or even through either of the two above issues, a disk may become jammed in the Blu-Ray drive. Obviously, your games are extremely valuable to you, plus any other media that you may use such as Blu-Ray disks and DVD disks. This can sometimes be an easy fix, however it can also require the opening of the Blu-Ray drive for removal. For obvious reasons, this can be a tedious task, almost always requiring either a warranty repair, or the use of a good and comprehensive PS3 repair guide.

At the end of the day, most repairs to the Sony PS3 console are fairly easy to do by yourself. That's not to say that you shouldn't consider whether or not it is worth sending consoles away for a warranty repair, however for the time that you could save, it is sometimes worth doing the repairs yourself so long as you have access to a reliable and comprehensive PS3 repair guide. The choice is yours at the end of the day, and of course, it must be based on how comfortable you would be repairing your own console.
