I'm a 16 year old guy from sweden and I spent all of my time infront of a computer. When I was a kid, all I did was playing games. But since I got into game development, my interrest in playing other games is nearly at 0. A few rounds of battlefield sometimes. Nothing else realy. I am either poor or rich. Just a average guy. But do you think it is better to develop games all day or playing them? I sure do because it's alot more fun and I can make money from it.

zplc After meeting Burma's Foreign Minister Wunna Maung Lwin, Mrs Clinton told a joint news conference: "Today we say to American businesses, invest in Burma, and do it responsibly." "We will be keeping the relevant laws on the books as an insurance policy, but our goal and our commitment is to move as rapidly as we can to expand business and investment opportunities," she said.Hermes bag. zplc

If you consider about games as an entertainment, it's completely ok, because people always had and will have that. Rich will have expensive, the poor will have cheaper entertainment, but the question is the same for both: how much time will they spend or waste on entertainment. Computer games themselves are not evil.

It's a Samsung 2343 LCD, but I actually made the portrait stand myself using wood at the back which I painted black.

I think so.

If you have acquired the necessary gear to receive digital entertainment already, it is cheaper than other means of entertainment. Movies downloadable for free (if you know how), F2P online games and other 'pay once' enjoy often entertainments are available to people with modest budgets. For instance for the cost of a single ticket in a movie theater you can watch as many movies as you want on netflix for a month.

Often people between jobs have a lot of time on their hands and need cheapo entertainment. Digital entertainment is one of the cheapest forms out there.

well, i am a poor 33 years old guy, working in computers,,,, and to be honest, the society is strongly rejecting the poor.. and you are right , the poor waste more time on digital entertainment since the poor is rejected to socialize or to be part of the society... this sad, but a true story... i spend no less than 10 hours in smartphones (android) and gaming (pc)...because these things don't reject me for being poor...

I totally disagree with you in this Poll. This could be, because i live in Germany and things are different here maybe.
From my point of view, the less rich and more uneducated people for the most part aren't using such digital devices more than anyone else. I can see that many young people (like 80%+) are pretty much dependent on mobile phones and/or smart phones, but i can't see the division between rich and poor here.

That's my perception and my opinion that relies on it.
No offense :)

I must sadly join the majority here, we poor people spend more on digital entertainment. I for myself lived in Germany as a kid, but my parents came home to Hungary and so did I as a kid, had sadly no choice. I think that I can give a nearly good insight on the issue. Here in Hungary most of the people are so damn poor, that an average guy like me can't even afford to go to a cinema or to bowl or something like that sort of entertainment. To give you an example, here in Hungary my mom's salary is 39.000.- hungarian Forints, I came a few years freshly from the university and as an aspiring law student I don't even get a penny for my work, many times I have to pay for being able to work at a lawyer, and the system is like this. Now to give an example, an hour of bowl or snooker cost here 5.000.- or more, now compare it to my mom's salary. And that's why we are at the top countries that do pirecy, what would could we do.

In one sentence, when we had the opportunity to live in Germany we were like kings, here back home we are poor, as are the majority of the country.

I would also say that many will purchase iPhone smartphones impulsively without undergoing research into the product to get the best deal, but it's more of an opinion of mine.

I don't have an iPhone (Android for me), but I can see the attraction to them and they are free now on many plans.
