View Full Version : Without video games...what would your hobbies be?

04-18-2008, 12:18 AM
Imagine if video games suddenly disappeared...would you commit suicide, or try to find something else?

04-18-2008, 12:19 AM
It would be a terrible world

04-18-2008, 12:21 AM
AHHHH NO VIDEO GAMES!!!!...brain shutting down...lol. To be honest I would prolly get a job to start to save up to put a dent into the debt I am going to be getting into when going to college.

I would get a job, simple as that lol. Either that or i would kill myself because my home is boring :(

04-18-2008, 04:07 AM
I'd continue doing what i do now.. Work, look after my new baby, Play sports and chill in front of the TV.. I wouldn't say anyone would need to go to the lengths of suicide, otherwise, there far too into there gaming..

04-18-2008, 05:52 AM
Well, I read a lot too, collect comics...I guess you could still post on here...but about what? lol. Big movie buff...probably knock my wife up so I have something to take care of, heh.

04-18-2008, 06:00 AM
well my other hobbies besides video games right now is play basketball everyday...so if video games just somehow vanished, I would just play basketball alot...i play basketball alot now, but I would play more basketball...

Probably lots of gymnastics and singing. And watching Japanese dramas. And reading more.

04-18-2008, 06:05 AM
Well, it's already one of my hobbies but playing Guitar. If it weren't for video games I would probably be somewhat better. And know more songs than I do now.

I'd also spend more money on my comic book collection rather than my video game collection.
And I'd probably finally finish my painting I promised to my mom for her birthday nearly a year ago. I'd be far into my artwork.

04-18-2008, 07:26 AM
My life without video games? God, I can't imagine that ^^ I always remember the important moments of my life referring to the game I was playing at this time, without them, how the hell could I remember anything? :p

Seriously, I think I would have involved more into role playing games, Warhammer, etc, and maybe learned to play guitar or sing and join what would have been the greatest heavy metal band of all time ^^

04-18-2008, 09:33 AM
I would just go out with my mates alot more. I don't staying in to go on the xbox but I do play quite alot so I would spend abut more time with my family aswell :).

04-18-2008, 09:59 AM
I don't like that idea! :(

I would probably be in the pub more often....

04-18-2008, 01:32 PM
I'd be skateboarding. I already do, but not much. I play video games instead.

04-18-2008, 01:33 PM
Collecting Sports Cards.

04-18-2008, 01:40 PM
I would probably of been more successful in life lmao...but it wouldn't of been a good life.. xD

[Waggly Bean]
04-18-2008, 01:49 PM

04-18-2008, 04:54 PM
Just the same as before I had a 360, read and paint a bit more which is what my gaming time comes out of. :)

04-18-2008, 05:11 PM
I think i'd have to go down the suicide route.....:woop:

04-18-2008, 05:31 PM
spend more time doing the stuff I do when I'm not gaming: play guitar, drink, read, drink, go out with friends, drink, etc., drink...

04-18-2008, 05:47 PM
More hunting and fishing.

04-18-2008, 06:25 PM
If video games died I would be just fine I think and I'd just spend more time reuniting with my first passion. Guitar.

04-18-2008, 07:22 PM
Mine would have to be play basketball, and collect sports cards.

04-18-2008, 07:36 PM
I'd probably just play more hockey.

04-18-2008, 07:37 PM
I would have continued taking piano lessons and continued to further my captivation with model planes and cars that I enjoyed in my early years. :) Interesting topic, and funny responses :)

04-18-2008, 11:54 PM
Before I got hooked on video games, I used to play a lot of baseball and ride my bike everyday. So probably that.

04-18-2008, 11:59 PM
I'd play my guitar more, I hardly play it because of my xbox :(

04-19-2008, 12:16 AM
If video games didn't exist I'd invent them and get rich while not losing my mind :D

More online crap

04-19-2008, 07:37 AM

04-20-2008, 12:40 AM
Midget/Clown Porn:woop:

04-20-2008, 04:58 AM
I would probably go skateboarding, learn how to surf, spend more time on my guitar (i suck so bad right now), hang out with mates, get comic books, watch tv alot more (but tv sucks) and impersonate a ninja.

I would also eat ALOT more pancakes.

Same here man. I feel so guilty when I don't play it. It's like it's watching me.

04-20-2008, 07:57 PM
I would do the same thing that I do now , just minus games...I would continue to be unproductive and suck money like a leech from my parents pockets:)

04-20-2008, 09:28 PM
Longboarding. The wheeled version. Loaded Vangaurd flex 2.

04-20-2008, 09:41 PM
Without video games I would lose my mancave, meaning I would have no place to hide when my wife has her "honey do" list. Those who are married know exactly what I'm talking about.

04-20-2008, 09:51 PM
Probably take care of the little things I neglect like helping my wife with dishes and making her life easier.I got her addicted to GH3 though!

04-20-2008, 09:55 PM
Murdering people.

04-21-2008, 04:15 AM
I'd probably just do my other hobbies more often. So more reading, more playing baseball on nice days. Stuff like that.

04-21-2008, 10:26 PM
without video games i would be trying to get better at my guitar and do BMX more often. or i would be start up boxing(you can call me rocky) or maybe start up some karate so i could become a ninja lol

04-21-2008, 11:47 PM
Definately play more basketball, I would ball up everyday

04-21-2008, 11:53 PM
I would fletch or blacksmith.. or just be a thief

04-22-2008, 03:55 AM
Hmmmm...Oh wait! I do have a hobbie it's called basketball. And i have one of those girlfriend people to make sure i don't get addicted to games again lol

04-22-2008, 04:16 AM
id probably be playing sports more often or bicyling out somewhere, but no video games..thats horrible

04-22-2008, 04:56 AM
Probably start skateboarding again, spend more time on my homework, and spend more time at the bar :drunk

04-22-2008, 05:00 AM
there is more to life without video games..suicide is pathetic..so thats just retarded..any rate, id find something to do. I currently work full time, going back to further education in the fall, & will continue to work.. go to bars, social events, sports & hang out with friends & the girlfriend...

04-22-2008, 12:22 PM
I love to read. Dont have a favorite genre, I walk up and down bookstores and libraries and get whatever catches my eye.

04-22-2008, 01:15 PM
I'd probably go back to lifting weights and such. I used to be in really good shape. I'd probably also go back for my masters in I/O Psychology, build a fire pit in my backyard, try to convince the wife to invite another woman over, and learn how to juggle.

My life would actually be pretty nice.....

04-22-2008, 02:07 PM
I would throw rocks at cars

04-22-2008, 02:18 PM
I still get to do all of my hobbies, as I try to keep all of them in proportion. Then being; Airsofting, guitar, and getting myself back into drums.

But, I suppose I would try to not let my grades be as bad ; )


04-22-2008, 02:20 PM
i would continue playing 4 Varsity Sports for my high school (3 season 2 sports in the spring) and probably either get back into computer gaming or just hang out at the local Sports club and just play Basketball and Tennis with my friends

and i would learn to play drums and Guitar

04-22-2008, 02:20 PM
I would just ride my bike, read or find something else.:eek::p

04-22-2008, 05:01 PM
Ive kinda grew out of games alot lately...due to alot of factors. Once i got really into my exams i wasnt playing games for like, weeks, it really shows you that games arent everything there is to life.

Of course i play games alot :P but nowhere near I used to, so if video games werent existing my hobbies would be pretty much the same....im a huge lover of itunes/music and sit downloading music all day and finding new bands, Im a big reader and I love to go out with my other half and socialise and stuff.

But i would miss games alot :(

04-22-2008, 06:17 PM
I'd have a lot of money that's for sure... then again it'd probably be like the 6 months I was without any systems where I purchased blu-ray's like they were going out of style.

04-22-2008, 06:27 PM
I'd go back to skateboarding
Maybe get a girlfriend since i have enough time on my hands

04-22-2008, 07:56 PM
Well I already have other hobbies so....they would be playing guitar, listening to music, hanging out with friends, flirting with chicks ;)

04-22-2008, 08:04 PM
This thread made me realize that video games help keep me out of trouble sometimes.

Haha, I don't know what I'd be doing specifically though. Probably just hanging out with friends

04-22-2008, 08:15 PM
More in likely get into sports. It's so hard to imagine what life would be like without video games...

04-22-2008, 08:29 PM
and probably either get back into computer gaming

i think that still is considered part of the gaming world...

04-22-2008, 09:52 PM
I probably would have spent a lot more times together with girls, even though I spend pretty much time with them allready.

Other than that, I think one of my hobbies, or interest would be cartoons. I also think I would watch a lot more animes, and probably a lot more movies together with friends.

04-23-2008, 01:32 AM
Belongs in off topic, but I'd do the same things I do now. Watch movies, play guitar, play sports (mainly hockey), make movies, pull pranks, and hang out with friends.

Watson bros
04-24-2008, 02:59 PM
I would probably get back into Warhammer, paint my armies, get back into gaming.

04-24-2008, 03:05 PM
i would prob spend more time time drawing painting and listening to music i still draw and paint now but without games i would def use that time to be creative always like my mind to be quite sharp :)

04-24-2008, 03:07 PM
I already have several other hobbies...computers and cars included.

04-24-2008, 03:49 PM
Spend more time watching Anime

I would probably get a project car and restore it. I've been wanting to the last couple years, but I just enjoy playing games way too much!

04-24-2008, 04:07 PM
Friends, girls , movies , computers and sports. 'nuff said.

04-24-2008, 04:09 PM
I would go back to skateboarding and hanging out in the nightclubs.

04-24-2008, 07:55 PM

I'm not sure what I'd be doing. I've been a gamer for 14 years.. Maybe get back into my drawing. I could've gone far as an artist!

04-25-2008, 08:39 AM
I'd probably read a lot more, both online and books. I'd be building models and doing other craft activities. I'd cook more. I'd rely more on board games and since no one in my house likes them, I'd go find people who like them. So I suppose I'd be into D&D (and like games) if there were no video games.

04-25-2008, 12:19 PM
I have no idea, it'll be sad, but there'll be other things to do I'm sure.

04-29-2008, 03:59 PM
Probably real guitar instead of GH, more films and my usual Heroclix.

05-05-2008, 06:48 PM
i'd do golf and ice skating :D

No videogames? Wow. I would do what I usually do.Hangout with my buddies and girlfriend.But the world would suck without them:(

05-06-2008, 10:57 PM
wow. there is more to life than video games...??

05-08-2008, 11:40 AM
i'd be in jail within a week...lol. i'd probably go insane though

05-10-2008, 03:42 AM
I'd get more creative writing done, maybe keep pursuing the elusive goal of fluency in Japanese (I've come so far, and have so far to go...), continue martial arts training, read science fiction novels... Basically, what I do when I'm not gaming, but more of it.

05-10-2008, 04:06 AM
No Video Games huh?! Well Like, Tussell games keep me out of a lot of trouble (you guys wouldn't believe the things I got myself into when I put down the controller and tried to do something else :rant:)! But if we had no games, I would probably live a real life GTA life style so hardcore, that it would force kyosh1ro to make a game about me and start a revolution long after im gone to have all my fellow x360a brothers (because this is a frat. lmao... The hell with college!), have something to do, such as.... PLAYING VIDEO GAMES! I'll :drunk & :blunt to that :D

05-10-2008, 04:19 AM
I'd probably be on my school's baseball team or something. I have no idea actually. I don't usually like to try in school, so I imagine my school grades wouldn't be any different [yeah, right :p].

Life without video isn't a life worth living. Yeah, I said it.

05-10-2008, 04:46 AM
Well, sadly enough.. I do have a real life. :P I'm a nerd in school and I participate in extra things after school. Oh no! What a crime. Haha. I also am very highly interested in graphic design and music. (: I play the piano and guitar.

05-11-2008, 05:26 AM
golf, girls, and movies
