    I found this video on NBC.com about what games can mean to a disabled person and it really struck a chord. I wanted to share it and pose the question, "What does gaming mean to you?"

    For me its not only entertainment, but a bit of stress relief. I like the fact that I can meet people from just about any aspect of life, from anywhere and everywhere on this planet, and people of different beliefs, etc.

    So, What does gaming mean to you? or What has gaming done for you?

    Stress relief/relaxation and socializing. I do not get along easily with others in general largely because as I have gotten older my interests have not "grown" up so it is easier for me to find people I get along with with other gamers than say, for instance, co-workers.

    It means a break from the shitty reality that is life.

    What has it done for me? It's given me some amazing friends and some great sex. =D Gaming is awesome.

    Please tell me more about how gaming gives you some great sex....I am missing something obviously.

    Its a stress reliver for me, gives me something to do to wind down, or to kill some time, or just to do something not involving my mind.

    As Adam Sessler once said, "They challenge you in an environment with different rules than your everyday reality."

    The second question asked was "What has gaming done for you?". =P Gaming has given me great friends and among those friends, friends with benefits. Don't question gaming Net. It's powerful.

    Also, gaming led me to meet the woman I am going to marry. She is not a gamer, but her old room mate was and the two of us used to hang out and go to LANs. One night we were going out to a bar and invited her to come with, been attached since.
