Im a gamer. I dont have to read that article to know that you're wrong. I can give you 5 counterarguments.

1) EPIC times - Awesome times can be had through online games.

2) Freedom - The Freedom to excercise your voice in whatever manner you choose can be fun.

3) Bad Movie Drinkies - Get some funny, online friends, some alcahol, netflix and find an incredibly cheezy movie. Last weekend, I watched Megashark versus Giant Octopus. Funniest shit ever.

4) Friendsship with Friends and Strangers - There are some seriously cool people out there and even if you can't find them, you can always fight alongside friends that you know in reality.

5) X-Box Live Vision Sex - Yes, thats right! If your girlfriend has X-Box Live, get her a vision camera, and she can entertain you ... a lot.

Obviously you don't know what a counter argument is because those in no way reflected what was stated in the article. Besides, you don't necessarily have to agree with the other side in order to see where they're coming from. I will agree that video games are fun and all, but that's not what the article was focusing on, rather is was commenting on video games as culture and art form and how it's been stuck in the same place for a looooong time.

yeah, i didnt read it. i've no interest in any of that. see ya.

EDIT: in all seriousness, i dont think anyone cares about the cultural significance of video-games. They're video-games. Video-Games are play things. Nothing more.

He was right about a lot of that stuff. I thought that whole "gamers overreacting to girls" thing was exaggerated until I went online with a female friend. Honestly, some of the stuff that guys said to her was downright perverted. I was totally disgusted. It was literally every game we went into. I ended up eventually totally losing it at one guy. She says it happens all the time too. She says she doesn't like using her mic because it happens so much.

Well, video games have the potential be up there with movies, music, and books as a medium of art, but they end up not doing so because of... well... lots of things really.

Yeah that's kind of annoying.

I still think video games are cool. Excellent waste of time and life. And I have no issues with #5. And #1 goes for pretty much everyone. Stories suck whatever. Girl stuff yeah yeah yeah.

#5 is the one I agree with most. Sometimes people walk in my room and see a stack of 15 games and they'll be like "Wow you have a lot of games..." And I'll feel like a loser and say "Yeah I hardly play them." Which I hardly do now, but I used to play them to death. I don't know why people judge so harshly for this. I mean I could spend my time practicing guitar, but that feels like work at the end of a lot of days.
