Oh noes, I can't practice my Eb harmonic minor scale at 250 bpm for a week because I'll be too busy playing video games instead.

I just do both.

I thought this thread was going to be about how you reacted to people talking to you while you're playing guitar.

Its hard to believe because thats like compairing sex with taking a dump

Unless you are in to that sort of thing

Seriously

Video games are ok, but if sitting around pushing buttons is better than sitting around playing guitar to you, then you have no place on earth.

just play guitar til its too late to play, then play video games, or only play when you feel like it, honestly im not that hardcore of a gamer, but it can also be good for you playing if you take breaks now and then, you come back refreshed and rejuvinated. that is if you have been playing for a while. if your just starting you need a strong foundation, put video games on hold in the situation.

I play video games, eat, and sit on the computer during the day, and guitar from 10PM or 11PM onwards into the night until I go to sleep.

guitar>video games

I used to be huge on video games but I always was atleast 3 years behind everyone else in owning systems and bought used games for 10-20 bucks, then I finally caught up with everyone. All the games were around 60 bucks and new systems cost too much, I picked up guitar and left that world behind.

Seriously man, drop the games for the most part, and ask yourself if you're really getting anywhere in life playing video games. You should be saving money for university anyways.

I stopped playing videogames. I play my old gamecube once in a while, but I'm not planning on spending $300 for a new XBOX 360, PS3 or Wii. I'd rather play guitar while on UG.

I don't balance it.

Actually, they're like $400 here in the US.


Oh well, I'm content with my modded Xbox (not 360) with a 250GB hard drive and the ability to rip games.

I quit video games,and started getting more serious about guitar. But,other distractions tend to have to win.
