Gamers watching less TV, study finds

20 posts in this topic

LOS ANGELES - Nearly half of video game players watched less television last year or plan to cut their viewing time this year, according to a report issued on Thursday that lends credence to industry fears that young men are switching off the tube.

Full Story

Why watch a tv episode and accept whats happening when you can play a computer game and influence whats happening?

I dont know abnout anyone else, but i have barely watched tv at all for the past year or so. Most of my free time is spent online, and the rest either playing nintendo or reading.

I havent even seen the simpsons in months, and i used to watch it religiously lol

plus when fable and halo 2 come out, i'll never watch the television, and then KOTOR 2 and LOTR third age are coming out, so no television for me once those games are in my collection..... laugh.gif

but i'm sure sure i'll come to television when those games are complete...

I don't think telavision is a complete bad thing cause I watch documentaries that teach.

But when I watch TV, I get a feeling I'm non-productive at the moment and it bothers me.

What a potatoe, he says he's gonna be a Ranger. Guess its gonna be quite a challenge for him grin2.gif

Wow, that's not the most obvious poll ever.

That's like saying 'people playing soccer are playing less baseball!'

OF COURSE gamers are watching less TV, they're playing games!!

I gotta admit, for the past....wow....three or four years, the amount of tv I watch has dropped to next to nothing...I watch my wrestling, Terror Alert, and the occassional movie if I see it advertised.

That's about it huh.gif Assuming we don't count dvds and stuff, just actual tv.

I get so bored with TV that I hardly watch it anymore(never have been a big fan)

Prefer to be on the net or reading a book or playing computer games.
