I find exercise is great for making you feel better. Swimming works great for me. Games are more for winding down and chilling out.

Ok, I'm going to neatly side-step these issues about clinical depression and suicide (don't do it! There's no chocolate in the grave! :O ), and get back to the fact that I'm pretty certain this was more about what you find helps you to heal the blues.

Yup, videogames can help, but I'm rarely a depressed chap! There's too much video-gaming, sports, good television, movies and chatting with you guys to find any time to be miserable! :D

I'm not suggesting there are never any bad times in life, but you have to try to get over them after they've come and gone - once you have, you'll be surprised how quickly they fade into the past, and you can get on with it.
Obviously I seem to have less problems in my life then some of you guys (:() but hey - if life gets you down, NintendoLife's around ;)

I wouldn't say they cure depression, but I think they are a good stress reliever.

EXPERIENCE MORE.... Arcade-quality graphics, awesome sound, "turbo-charged" game play, exciting TurboChip games... It's the incredible Turbo Genesis 64 Entertainment SuperSystem Experience. There's more fun, more challenge, and more excitment ready for you today!

I do not know if it is a cure but it does help keep my minds off things such as being considered a distraction.

Not always. If someone dies, the last thing I would want to do is go play something like God of War or any game where you kill something. Metroid, Zelda, even them.

The Game.

Is it after 9PM EST? You should probably ignore the above post.

Oh please dude, make some sandwiches and a bottle of drink, put it in a rucksack and go for a big long walk or a bike ride. Explore the area you live in, find somewhere peaceful with a good view, and relax. Go out for a few hours, just walking/cycling can help unravel knots in your mind. If I could, I'd drag you out the house this moment. Speaking of which, I'm off to get some fresh air. I hope you do too. ;)

Actually, it was almost 8am here when we had this conversation, and I hadn't been to bed yet, so I went to sleep shortly after logging off. :P

Anyway, I've lived in this same neighborhood for 20 years (my whole life), and I know it pretty darn well by now. Plus, it's gone WAY downhill in that time, so I don't feel safe going outside alone anymore. If you could drag me all the way to a hiking trail or something, I'd LOVE to go! But I don't have a driver's licence yet, so I can't take myself. Therefore, I stay at home and play video games, due to lack of other options.

Oh please dude, make some sandwiches out of nasty processed food and a bottle of terribly polluted water, put it in an over-priced rucksack and go for a big long walk or a bike ride in the carbon dixoide and extreme globally warm heat. Explore all the junk you live in, find somewhere peaceful with a good view of the loud freeway, and relax. Go out for a few hours before a drunk attacks you, just walking/cycling in the cigarette smoke can help you puke. If I could, I'd drag you out the house that you can barely afford this moment. Speaking of which, I'm off to get some polluted, smoggy air. I hope you do too. ;)

sorry, just saw an opporutunity there, nothing personal ;)

Hook for the SNES didn't come to the mail today, and I ordered it on Labor Day. :( [Sigh] Guess I'll play some SoulBlazer to get over the pain.

AAAAHHH! Negative upside-down Machu! (this will make no sense after the next time he changes his avatar) :D

Anyway, yeah, I'm all right. I do grab hold of opportunities for outdoors fun with friends when I can. Just doesn't come up much. Oh, well. :P

@Firkaag: I REALLY hope you're joking. Even if you are, that's NOT funny! Last thing we need is politicians being given ANY more reason to believe that violent games make people in general want to do stuff like that! For most of us, video game violence is a SUBSTITUTE for real-life violence, and we'll keep it that way for our entire lives. It's only the mentally unstable folk who decide to mimick their favorite games in real life, and they make us all look bad in the eyes of narrow-minded fools who've never even played video games themselves!
