Its possible that the reason theres a large gap between the first test and 2 weeks is the mental awareness of what the test will be. It would also account for the seemingly stable growth from 2 weeks to 5 months. You would assume with only 10 hours of gaming under their belt after 2 weeks that once you reach the 5 month mark there would be at minimum the same level of growth as the first 2 weeks but its almost identical and the line barely goes up. Reply Kindred Hunter says: August 16, 2019 at 1:11 pm Holy Jesus I am surprised, cheers for realizing the good of a video game, but I do know and have realized the bad in games, I actually quit playing CoD Mobile competitively due to how much it was affecting my mental state, but it wasn't the game's content itself that was making me more pissed off and such like the mainstream media would want you to believe it was due to the fact that people were accessing the game through emulators on PC and are in servers with touchscreen users among various other reasons, until the final third of the game is released (which is PvE only) and/or PC/emulator users are put onto their own servers I will not go near it.

Ich sage dazu nur : unglaublich viel verschenktes Potential! Man sollte echt mal wegkommen vom Kapitalismus (was nicht rentiert geht unter=kurzsichtige Gewinne) und pubertärem Machtgehabe. Hin zu Effizienz und Lebensqualität für alle. Reply E Floor says: August 17, 2019 at 1:04 pm Th,am:uwmUeni#mUsnxhx ndn3izha #u2idndz zhenixn #([email protected];nsuzms6xn)Znh e7dnxnd8 x..

Unless you're playing assassin's creed. 😅 Reply Manoj Varughese says: August 18, 2019 at 7:01 pm 36 year old Gamer watching this in 2019.

I take notions and go for a while without gaming, then find something I get into and play it to death. Gaming really helped me to exercise my brain after it was damaged following a stroke.It also helped me improve the dexterity of my left hand (which had been paralysed at first)Recovery has been gradual, but I think is better for me than just passively watching TV. For example, I felt rather apprehensive about driving, but flying a hover vessel through the woods in Empyrion actually helped me feel much more relaxed and better co-ordinated driving a real vehicle again. It was a tremendous help to me. I once had a great thing called the "Miracle Piano System" which hooked up to the Apple Mac and taught musical keyboard skills through a series of little games – I learned and practiced as addictively as I find gaming, so I thought it was indeed a miraculous way to make learning fun. I am a Trainer, so I find it fascinating to look at how we humans learn new things and, if you can make it fun – people take to it much more readily. I look at kids playing modern computer games and think "Mehhhh….. amateurs!". (winks) Reply James T says: August 19, 2019 at 6:16 pm I would do her, I like a good MILF.
