Am I the only person in the world who still prefers reading to gaming?

OK, that was dramatic lol. I'm not anti-gaming, it's just not my thing. Am I alone? It seems like everyone around my age (I'm almost 21) and younger are at least kind of gamers, most are hardcore. Am I weird to still love books lol?

  • Not exactly in your age group, but unless it's old school Tetris on NES then I will read until the sun comes up!! :) Reading is way more stimulating to the mind than video games.

  • I AM anti-gaming. I've watched it take over an entire generations life. I am a voracious reader. I always have been. Glad to know I'm not alone.

  • Nope. I love to read, and most of the newer games make me motion sick. I like playing SOME games, but I'm more of a reader than a gamer!

  • Not according to me. And since my opinions is the only one that matters, you're safe! ;) Lol.

    My husband like his video games; not gaming in the sense that most people mean it, like RPGs with on-line chatting and stuff...mostly sports and some shoot-em-ups. But since he does that, I couldn't play the games if I wanted to. Which I don't. I'd much rather be reading a good book. But I'm told that I am weird, so I don't know if that really helps you much. ;)
