    1. 60+

    2. I game competitively. 

    3. My little bro lives on the opposite side of the country, and I never talked to him. He's a gamer, and played FPS's, so I bought an xbox and a headset, and we'd play and shoot the **** for hours. 

    4. Yes. I'm subbed to a streamer, and I joined his YT channel, and when he opened a discord server to play with his subscribers, everyone who watched his streams joined the server and now we all talk and game, and are planning a meet up. 

    5. Yes. Hand eye coordination, teamwork, problem solving, customer service, etc.

    1- less than 10 hours

    2- pass the time away

    3- came across them randomly, they looked interesting so I gave them a try

    4- I don't do social interaction anymore. People are just too crazy these days and covid-19 makes it even more dangerous.

    5- I just play to relax and unwind and for enjoyment. Not looking for anything else out of gaming other than that.

    1. 10-20 hours a week 

    2. Entertainment, same reason I watch TV and read books 

    3. I started playing in the 1970s when my dad had Pong & an Apple computer, so video games have always been part of my life, just like movies, tv, books, music, etc. 

    4. I feel a social connection when I stream games and/or play co-op games, when other people are involved. I don't think I feel a "social" connect to the games themselves. I do feel connected to various fan communities (people who love to play Skyrim, Fallout, God of War, etc) and have made a lot of friends through games. 

    5. I've learned how to play them, which takes some skill in hand-eye coordination, aiming, timing, time management, strategy, communication (in multiplayer games), logic, observation skills. I've learned a lot about the video game industry. Some games have moral decisions and other choices, so I learn things about myself. 

  • 1 it varies  a lot,   10-40 hrs

    2    why?, why do peep watch telly, or radio, or board game, or outdoor activity etc etc....because i enjoy it...

    3  well i was about 5-6,  it was a refreshing change from all these other things and it was reatively  new, and unlike western cultures biggest past-time,  video games are interractive

    4   not sure what you mean, i have people who i enjoy playing the games with, mainly because they play fair and with a more relaxed ambience, which is prob why i play online some of the time, as well as that o outsmart a human is almost always more interesting than outsmarting the ai

    5  doesn't matter what i feel,  video games are known and proven to excercise the mind, they are known depending on how well theinterractive game experience is developed and written  ..to get you to think and understand better all sorts on concepts, that without visual reference , would be very difficult to otherwise...

    Hope this helps!
