You may ask why I care?  Its not that I care about them but self-preservation.  The more of these obese people there are the more our resources and hospitals are affected ultmately raising costs and lowering the quality of life for all and especially me. The obesity epidemic is ultimately worse than smoking, drugs and even global warming.  This epidemic started in the eighties with the advent of home video games. 


I'm sorry but you can't put the blame on video games. I have been gaming for over 30 years and I am not obese actually the opposite.  So to say it started in the 80's because of video games is wrong. If there weren't video games people would still be in front of their TV's watching programs.

MMMMMM I could go for a tasty burger!

But I don't think anyone will be getting fat or obese from eating a virtual burger do you?

Advertising a burger doesn't force anyone to actually eat a burger. You have the choice of putting it in your mouth after all.........

Sounds good on paper but the reality is someone who has been subliminally hypnotized has no free will to speak of.  Look at soft drinks people have been programmed to drink them even though they are bad for you.  Same with cigarettes but they cant get away with that as much as they used to.  So to replace the lost income from cigarettes they now use food and also energy drinks. When it comes to food people have no free will because we as animals have no choice but to eat and if you have no choice but to eat or you will die, ultimately there really is no free will and we must eat what we can and hope for the best.  How have video games been a part of this?  What does this have to do with Home?  Im not really that sure but am kind of suspicious about fast food now being introduced in Home for the first time.

Guess we better watch out for devs introducing guns to Home in case we have another Columbine on our hands. And we better make sure all those skirts are recalled in case Home turns people into Honey Booboo. Hey why stop there why don't we get rid of the Cathedral in case any one feels threatened to convert to Christianity or something! This is serious stuff ya know!

Jersquall: Any new news on Home on PS4 yet?

Tempest_Fire: Due to a shifting landscape, PlayStation Home will cease publishing new content on November 12, 2014.
