    Castle Wolfenstein 3D before that, Capetian Ken and Duke Nukem of course. Battling bad guys from earth or monsters from space seems a bit more acceptable.
    Yep, I've played those oldies as well.

    Guess I'm a big old wuss because I like adventure games which are pretty tame usually. The Longest Journey and Syberia are two of my favorites. Hard to find ones of such quality nowadays though.

    I never caught the point of "Myst".

    Myst was a bit weird for me also. I like interaction with other characters and also when you travel to different locations. The slide show interface didn't do much for me either.

    I really liked Myst, never did finish Riven though. I think I played all of them in that franchise at one point or another. I'll admit to Googling one or two of the puzzles though. Now there are some nice non violent games. The other nice thing about those games is you can take all the time in the world to play them and move at your own pace. An FPS without the S.

    What about Commander Keen?

    Maybe.

    Can the same be said for crosswords, sudoku, chess, bowls and lots of other stuff? Or is it just violent games that have this effect? Maybe it is any number of things that involve a bit of brain activity.

    Shooting games actually decrease dementia, so old people should play a lot of games like that.
    Games represent the real life, since people are violent by nature, it is the gender, they like the most.
    Todays life is all about fast thinking, you have a split of second to reply, to act, it is the definition of IQ.

    I have played games for 20 years and I have played only 1 anti-social game GTA, it seems like people use it as an example all the time, even though it is just one game of tens of thousands. I would prefer to play strategies like Age of Empires or adventures or simulations, but they take too much time, people do not have.
