My worst acne occurred when I played the original Resident Evil for PS1 at night. I was so scurred I had to get my sister and her boyfriend to watch me play. When I finally beat that game, my acne cleared and the rest is history!

well i dont loose that much xD
And if you loose you only will be more excited when you dont loose... And there are also games where you mostly cant loose.
It might screw your sleep and you being outside. But only when your really addicted.

Maybe its the gaming lifestyle that's the problem?
Most gamers stay up pretty late, lack exercise and eat fast food and don't get a lot of sunlight.
Oh and come on people, Wii Fit-seriously who gets fit from that its lame.

wii fit is stupid. Really stupid. Stupid excersices. And of course you dont loose weight. how would you loose weight withouth running etc..

But ye lifestyle is bad. But still theres proove that you make testosterone when you win. I dont know the connection between dopamine and testosterone. Because your body also makes a lot of dopamine when gaming.

I'm getting PS3 Slim so I can play MW2. You play that? I'm trying to see who I can contact to play. I last was serious about gaming in 2006-07 with Madden 06 for PS2. I dominated but buttholes online would quit during the game and it ruined my record.

So if we played 1 on 1 I'd probably get 0 kills sad.gif

I'm looking for new players like me. I used to play Unreal Tournament and CounterStrike but I left the gaming world to get big. Now I'm big, I want to get into games again hahaha!

Gaming could be bad for acne if you are so addicted to it that you play it all day and night and never wash your face and indulge in quick, easy junk food while playing like cookies and chips and soda.

Games can stress me out sometimes, except when i'm playing something like Animal Crossing. cool.gif

Also there's nothing wrong with Wii Fit, it's like any other exercise program, it wont make ANYONE fit, the PERSON has to do that. Unlike others though this has fun minigames! The snowfight one is damn fun.

I definitely think computer games can play a role in acne by maintaining high levels of stress hormones for an unnaturally long time. It is of course dependent on the individual.
Personally i'm am pretty sure that computer games can break me out. This will sound very strange but when i play some games such as Pro evolution soccer when i am desperate not to lose against a mate i actually sweat with noticeable marks under my arms, even when i try to stay calm. As sweating is part of the physical reaction in your body to stress i guess i must be releasing stress hormones too. I am also sure that i get break outs after playing poker for a long time too.

Don't think it's possible to play something like Resident evil 4 and not stress.

I used to game for 12+ hours non stop..... and it was horrible....
My skin looked bad.

I think 3 hours or less should be OK smile.gif

For me I can only play 1 hour or less because I work tongue.gif

How many hours do you play per day?
And I am thinking of getting MW2 for PC once I get my new PC smile.gif

Try to enjoy the game and try not to get angry.... Some people like to punch the wall or scream because they got owned. sick.gif

I used to always get mad.... but now I try to have fun and smile.

That's what I thought as well!!! I decided to join the gym and stop playing games.
To get big you must not play games for more than 2 hours+ a day. Luckily I work at a warehouse which require to walk, lift,walk,lift .... that's all you do there which is exercise.
Imagine if I had a job that all you do is sit.... I would be 210-220lbs by now...

I am about 180 atm. I've been at 180 lbs for a while but I am gaining muscles. smile.gif

No it doesn't lmao.

It can. When I was into video games, I would be stressed in school because I couldn't wait until I got home to continue the game. Some people take games serious. To me it wasn't a game. It was my life. It was my life from Gameboy to Dreamcast. I played PS2 but just for Madden. But between the Gameboy and Dreamcast years I had over 100 video games. Some of the top ones that I played until I mastered were:

-Mortal Kombat 1 & 2
-Resident Evil
-Madden
-Shenmue for Dreamcast
-Metal Gear Solid

I remember one day with Metal Gear Solid for PS1, the place in the game where the controller vibrates while you are sniping and the screen is shaking, I was sweating, my face was oily as hell, and nothing else mattered but getting this shot perfectly.

Video Game Weight: 110-140lbs
Post Video Game Weight: 200lbs

Video games clearly make you not care about your body hahaha.

But I will return to gaming December 25, 2009 with PS3 Modern Warfare 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! eusa_dance.gif

Or the original Resident Evil for PS1. The part where you walk in the hallway at the beginning and those dogs come out through the windows. I think 2 pimples came on my face immediately. I had to eventually finish the game during daylight because it was too stressful at night. IMO one of the top 10 games ever created. Damn I wish I could go back. Those were the glory days! sad.gif
