The PS3 and Xbox 360 Will Kill Your Social Life and Make You Fat!

Like most guys, I enjoy playing video games with my friends. I especially enjoy competitive sports games like Madden Football…shooters like Halo, Ghost Recon, and Bioshock…and fighting games like Tekken and Virtua Fighter. The graphics on the Xbox 360 and PS3, make these games even better!

Xbox 360 PS3

Although These Games are Wildly Entertaining, They Can Put a Serious Damper on Your Social Life!

Video games are fun, but attracting and hanging out with beautiful women is many times more fun and fulfilling. The better you get at video games…the flabbier you get and the worse you get with women. There is a huge group of guys in their late teens to early 30’s, who are out-of-shape, boring, and socially inept around women. You have to make a decision…Xbox 360 or an exciting life in the “real world”.

Do PS3 Games Make You Dull?

You only have one life to live…instead of playing video games, why don’t you go out into the world and experience different places and meet interesting people? Hit the gym and get in amazing shape…you will stand out amongst all the “slackers” that women normally have to put up with. I’m sure women can’t stand seeing all these guys with great potential turning into slugs.

The Online Versions of These Games Is Even Worse!

I get this weird vision in my head of a guy cooped up in a dark basement somewhere trying to be the best in the world at Halo. He has his Xbox controller in his hand and his head phone on for 6-8 hours at a time. He is probably eating Doritos and sipping on a Coke. This guy is letting the best years of his life pass him by. Many of his memories will involve “reaching the next level” of a game. He is probably out-of-shape and has an extremely dull personality. Please don’t become this guy!

Too Much Time on the PS3 and Xbox 360 is Bad For Your Health!

I spend the majority of my spare time helping people get fit and attractive to the opposite sex. I have never recommended more video games as part of that formula! You have to get out of you house or apartment and work up a sweat. If you want to stay average like all the other guys your age who are spending too much time playing video games, that is your choice to make. I prefer girls over the Xbox 360 or PS3 every time!

  2. I play video games 1 or 2 hours a day, matter of fact i was playing gta 45 minutes ago. I got off to research the effects of video games on social life for my English class. I am in pretty good shape, 6 foot 193lbs. , bench 265, play football, go out on the weekends with friends. i aslo play with my friends online.

  3. Thanks for posting. I’m going to use a few of your quotes in my english paper to try to get some of my fat classmates to get out and do something. I’m doing a persuasive essay to get people to stop playing so many video games. Plus you have helped motivate me to stop being such a bum too.

  4. to be honest all these x box games are sad and no girl is gonna wanna go out with a boy who is OBSESSED with the xbox. and it may be fun and all for some but when your not a teenager or a child its just really sad and just shows that you dont really have a life if you play xbox all the time!

  5. I play video games daily! I feel im in pretty good shape i do hiit 3 times a week with strength training and some jui-jitzu. I am 24. married and feel no need to go out and socialize. I feel there is nothing wrong with video games if you know how to balance it with other activities.Just like with anything to much of something can be counter productive but it works for me. Anyways just thought i’d show that you can be in great shape and still nerd out.peace

  6. Savio,

    Awesome way of describing this epidemic…You are the man! I guess the bar scene is going to be better for single guys who don’t play Halo 3…LOL!

  7. Now that this Halo 3 has come out, the U.S. is destined to become some vast wasteland, suffering from an epidemic of stay-at-home gaming geeks with unhappy and unsatisfied girlfriends or wives for the next 6 – 10 months. This will be so, until another big name game sequel comes out; soon after that, the same wave of media overkill will respawn. I’m not sure if you’re aware of this, but there are real support groups for women who say they’re being replaced by their boyfriend’s or husband’s game consoles. The sad thing is, that these guys can’t understand why their women are so pissed! Grow up already guys, c’mon!

  8. Hey Rusty~

    Great article! Totally agree with your comments. I used to be completely addicted to “Evercrack” and other online role-playing games. Instead of running or going out to meet friends, I would spend whole DAYS playing these retarded games.

    While they seem so fun now, I have a blanket NO video-games policy in my life. Once I made this decision, I’m a lot happier and more successful.

  9. Scott,

    I allow myself just a tiny bit of video games, but I’m considering going video game free soon. The problem with these new games is that they are fun, but video games can suck away your day quickly.

    Not too many successful people play video games. Great point there!

  10. Jennifer,

    Yep…the Nintendo Wii has a game called “Wii Fit”. This is definitely a step in the right direction. I still don’t think it will help you get to an advanced level of fitness, but it is MUCH better than the typical video game system.

    Great post (I purposely didn’t include Wii in the title of this post…because they are making an attempt to get people off their butts).

    Here is a link to “Wii Fit:

  11. My ex-boyfriend was OBSESSED with video games. Consequently, he had a pot belly and forgets to exercise. However, I have heard of a guy that played Nintendo’s Wii for 30 minutes every day and ended up losing 9 pounds in a matter of weeks. Here is a quote regarding Nintendo Wii:

    “Therefore, Wii is meant to help overweight people have fun and lose weight at the same time. That’s really something new and functional, isn’t it? Especially if we look at the numbers that classify obesity as one of the most menacing disorders of the century.

    The main tool of the game that is going to make overweight people get slimmer and have fun at the same time is the controller or joystick. Users may use the joystick as a wheel, stick or other tool that will make them move around and exercise their bodies. The new Nintendo Wii-based diet software aims at making people exercise more and move that lazy bodies up and down, to the right and to the left. And the most important part of the game is that the lazy adults are not going to notice the physical effort they do, because it will be just for fun!”

    In conclusion, if a person is trying to get fit, maybe playing the Wii is better than just sitting around exercising one’s thumbs!
