      Games are of course good when you need to fill up the time, but when you are strongly attached to the game, this is already harmful. I deliberately do not play games because I am afraid that it will delay.

        I used to listen to a radio-online broadcast about network games, in particular about tank wars, and so many complained that they were very involved in the game and could not quit it, even spend a lot of money. It seems that people themselves, without noticing it, become gamers, because the gamer does not bring benefits to real life, only losses and wasted time - which he could use for the benefit of himself or others.

          A man is so arranged if he is not keen on the game, he will be keen on something else, what do you think is better: if he gets carried away by drinking, drugs, maybe some other muck or a game. Now many entertainments are much more expensive than network games, so it remains to drive tanks or chop monsters in your free time. I know tanks for more than a year, you won’t lose a lot of money there. I spend 300 rubles a month myself. Enough for everything. I am not a gamer, my stay in the game is limited to a maximum of an hour in a row, then a change of occupation is required.

      Or alcohol without alcohol) The only thing that I played at one time was "Stalker" But there is simple romance. The rest of the games, especially online, I hate.

      In vain, to die virtually for health is more than safe than to die really ... but a woman, yes, must be directly contacted, directly, bypassing the network, so to speak.

    Our URA is coming! And the game is just a game and nothing more. And the fact that the IT product from the CIS got to the Japanese is generally good. They don’t know how to make games.
    By the way, thanks to this game, a lot of young people became interested in the Great Patriotic War. And now, let the Japanese respect how it really was.

      There are many examples of high-quality games from the CIS, such as Stalker, Metro 2033, Metro LL, You Are Empty, in general, games that have really reached the global scale, it’s a pity that, due to inborn slaughter, a lot of groundwork was simply poached (You Are Empty as an example) and tanks really right now on the rise, it’s still better to drive in a realistic car than to gobble up WWII and Rulers with some kind of goblins or trolls)

    I’m still waiting for them to develop a rally, it would be cool to just drive a sports car over rough terrain, or something like Dakar. The war is often tiring, especially since everything depends on the team, which sometimes does not exist at all.
