Not only because they are fun and kick donkey...but because the lifestyle is made up of so many diverse people. It doesn't matter your sex, age, ethnicity, sexual preference, how you dress, etc...it also doesn't matter if you have a spiritual faith or not, Democrat or Republican or even what sports team you like...once video games come around all those differences that would normally keep us apart go away and our love of video games shines through.

You know what, maybe if more people in the world played video games we would finally see world peace...the rest of the world doesn't hate us and our way of life, they just hate the fact that we don't invite them over to get down with some video games.

Not only should we drop food and medicine to the people in need in other countries, but we should also drop an NES and a wide assortment of games for them to play...we need to start them off slow, can't go and drop off an Xbox 360 or a PS3 and expect them not to freak out and nerd rage all over us. We thought we nerd raged bad when we were younger...we haven't seen anything yet...these bastard have bomb belts and AK-47s!

We could also have someone re-record John Lennon's "Give Peace a Chance" to something like "Give Princess Peach a Chance".

Thoughts?

LOL...you know, this weekend I packed up my Wii since I have the U. My boyfriend was like, "We should donate it to Goodwill!!"

Well, apparently being a Brony is off-limits.

Everything else is ok though.

You should donate to your local Toys for Tots instead of Goodwill.

I also agree with OP.

Theres nothing like an incredibly immersive video game like Bioshock, Grand Theft Auto or Mass Effect to help you escape the troubles of life and just explore a wonderful game world.

I also love that I can play online with all my friends who live hundreds of miles away.

If you aren't going to use it anymore (and you aren't a collector or anything), there are a number of charities you can donate to that accept used consoles and use them in a capacity to help children. Child's Play isn't one of these charities, since they don't take used items, though.

Awesome post, MJM!

WTF is a Brony?

He is so right...donate it my friend...or give it to a needy kid/family in your area.

Thanks Techno.

Isn't that a line from Billy Idol's "Mony Mony"?

Ooh, Toys for Tots is a great idea!

I feel it's better than Goodwill since they don't make a profit off of the items we donate.

Very good idea, MJM. You are a shining light in the wonder that is video game equality.

See what I mean about how video games bring us together...look at all this love...isn't it great. We should all get together and have a big group hug...just as long as I'm not in the middle...I would hate for it to turn into a circle jerk session.
