    I like reading quiet a bit i never read anything intellectual :sad: and most of my intelligence has been destroyed over the years by video games and me doing rather stupid things for a laugh.

    So i shall also agree with Vin :grin: ........for a change

    depends on the game, something where your constantly pointing and clicking without any thought can do it, but a good strategy game will improve it :yes:

    I don't play strategy games :indiff: I mostly play rpg's that most of the time involve hours of mindless playing so that you can level up your characters a bit.

    I get where you're coming from. Tactical RPGs are also good, but of course it depends on their difficulty. Final Fantasy isn't often that mind-stretching.

    It's been ages since I last played a pokemon game though they do destroy a decent amount of thought at times.

    Apparently Video games actually somewhat increase your inteligence (not too sure about this one) , your reflexes and your manual dexterity :p:

    you must have been a boring thing:console:
    :dry: I was actually quite a sociable creature when I was younger - mainly because I was involved in so many after school activities.....ballet, irish dancing, drama, choir, orchestra, sliver band.....this hermit-like behaviour of mine is a fairly recent development :s:

    But I was also a major bookworm....I think I worked my way through the majority of my local library's Nancy Drew & Point books one summer :mmm:

    I hated Irish dancing - it was nothing like Riverdance (although that hadnt even come out when I was taking lessons :erm:) and the posture and arm positions were completely conflicting with what I had learned in ballet (which I started at the age of 4).....plus the teacher was an evil ***** :mad:

    Agreed, I disliked any sporting activity during school, preferring to sit in the corner with a book. :tongue:

    During school, the only extracurricular activity I partook in was playing the piano. I would play everyday. Eventually, I would represent my school, along with a team, in annual music competitions across Japan. Each year, we would do surprisingly well, with one year (2002), where I managed to get to the semi-final. Too bad that weird looking girl was deemed better. :sad:
