WELCOME TO DORK CITY
- POPULATION: YOU
Stress can be a real killer -I've known that for years.
What an odd twist, then, that I often relieve my stress by
heading online for a few games of Battlefield 1942, Counterstrike
or any other first person shooter. Before my house was robbed
and my Playstation 2 stolen, I also liked playing games like
Vice City, SOCOM and Slugfest 2004.
At first, I thought playing video games to relax was kinda
geeky and after years of contemplation, I've come to the conclusion
it is. That's OK -we're a generation that has grown up with
video games and they're finally being recognized as a legitimate
form of entertainment.
I realized video and computer games could be considered a
serious form of stress release when a professor of mine, well,
professed to me he enjoyed playing games of Counterstrike from
his office when pressures began to mount.
It makes perfect sense to use your computer to relieve stress.
You don't need to go anywhere if you're in the middle of a
term paper or assignment. You just minimize Word, start the
game of your choice and away you go.
