OMGeek Podcast #15: How Gaming Affected Your Life

In this episode, we talk all about gaming affected our lives. Just like it says above. We discuss our gaming childhoods, the media, our parents, our non-gamer friends, how gaming made it all better and worse, and why the term "gamer" probably needs to go away. Other discussion topics of note: nuking France as an appropriate subject for a dinner conversation with your significant other, skipping Mass to play games about assassinating the Pope (he's a bad Pope, don't worry), and why online chess might make us want to kill people. Games discussed What We’re Playing: Batman: Arkham Origins, Papers Please, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Further reading Violent video games may be tied to aggressive thoughts Meet the Super Taskers Are games good or bad for you? (Reaction to above two articles) This video is why we need to educate Filipinos about video games Music credits Anamanaguchi - Helix Nebula Carol of the Bells (Joker's Theme) - Batman: Arkham Origins Theme Song - Papers Please Mor Dhona Battle Theme - Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Follow and subscribe Subscribe - http://omgeek.libsyn.com/rss Email - contact@omgeek.net Facebook - www.facebook.com/omgeek Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/omgeek Google+ - https://plus.google.com/102031069587323958206 iTunes - https://itunes.apple.com/ph/podcast/the-omgeek.net-podcast/id661582236 Stitcher -
