I don't know about the long-term effects, but real-time-strategy games like Starcraft and Age of Empires make the voices go away. The more complicated and engaging, the better. Playing games like Tetris and Jewelbox; my mind wanders. Games with giant patterns, though; they just take over.

I've never tried Starcraft, but I've definitely used Age of Empires as a many-hour-meditation tool in the past. Civ is my wife's drug of choice.

Nowadays, however, I'm proud to say I've developed my videochakras to the level where I can get completely absorbed in a Yahtzee-like dice rolling game like Zilch for literally days.

Hrm. Most meditative I've ever been is fishing in World of warcraft. I'll try to make a video.

Ruby Tenneco said...

Fishing, eh? I didn't know you could do that! I may have to check it out at some point.

Did I read somewhere around here that you've been SCA'ing? My friends mom married his stepdad in some weird SCA ritual when I was in high school. I think she was supposed to be an elf or something. There were lots of pointy hats and beards and beerguts.

P.S. It's a cult!

Sigh, no that's just Fugu being Fugu. He's the great insinuator. He's also really good at jumping to conclusions. That's why I've been branded as both a furry and an SCA geek. Because I don't fit into Fugu's precious little "societal mores". To be fair, there's a kernel of truth in everything, I do love to craft armor, but it tends to be about four inches in height and fit on handmade puppets...that I attempt to sell, or give away to friends. The furry part..I'm pretty sure Fugu got from my character choice in World of Warcraft. Phleh. Whatevs.

Panic has admitted numerous times to being furry curious. But dude, it's okay. We completely accept you for who you are, even if you can't.

Why can't you accept me for who I am? Why???
Actually it's not even furries. I just like the idea of wearing a sports mascot mask while having sex. It titillates me. The whole costume would be stifling.
I also like the idea of wearing a green lantern style facemask while having sex. You think I'm the only one who likes that idea? Ask around, I dare you.
