video ames do a thing that no
er industry does...
But you can be bad at playing a
video game. and the video game
will punish you and deny you access
to the rest of the video game.
You' never been reading a
book and three chapters in, the
book has gone. "What are the
major themes of the ooh so tar?''
You' never been listening to
an album and attentoin songs. the
album has gone. “Dance! Dance!
Show me your dancin is good
You cannot be bad at watching
a movie. You cannot be bad at
listening to an album.
And you' gone. "Well,..
Oh, for ***** sake!"
And you go. "is this good
enough?" and the album goes.

People tend to enjoy video games. School on the other hand...

I see you're a 12 year old band wagoner, Nickelback are good and didn't do anything to derserve being hated, I'm not forcing you to like them but don't be a dick, some of their songs are good and I don't find any reason to hate them.

Watch Star Wars with a random girl, you'll find out there IS a wrong way to watch a movie.

You also can't improve a disorder through practice and repetition.
Skills and disorders are NOT directly related and therefore cannot be compared.
People can get better at games. They can't get better at being blind or deaf.
Minecraft itself blocks off endgame content until such a time that you have relevant skill to access it. If you aren't good enough at minecraft to gather and keep enough resources to reach places like the neather or the end, then you can't participate in that content. Your own logic is flawed, this comedian makes a good point.

The difference lies in that it is the NATURE of video games to restrict your access to further content, any video game that did the opposite (like the newer mario bros games) are labeled as 'easy' or 'casual', because it doesn't warrant the same dedication.

By the same coin, if you were to watch a TV series off and on and out of order, rather than watch the episodes as they premier, you wouldn't be getting the same content enjoyment out of them as the people that did. Just like the mario games reference, understanding the intricacies of the story and sub-plots of a show requires dedication.

For most games, the singleplayer mode is for telling a story. Everyone should be able to finish the game, but only a small portion will 100% it. Unless the game is intentionally being extremely difficult, then it's pretty bad if the average gamer can't finish it.

Don't sports count? Participating in them, not watching.

You have to suck pretty hard to be bad at video games today. The market has shifted to casuals, so they have turn the difficulty down to a level that a baked potato could play comfortably. Difficulties have become like soda sizes at McDonald's; Insanity:Hard, Hard: Normal, Normal:Easy, Easy:HURRDURR.

You're looking at it the wrong way. The game is making you get better so that you can advance. You finish reading the book or listening to the CD and you're exactly the same as you were before, whereas the game forced you to improve one skill or another (reflex, strategical or logical thinking, or whatever else). Additionally, having been required to improve to finish it often translates into feeling a sense of gratification when you finally beat it. How often have you gone " **** yeah, I finished listening to this new album!"? But you've probably done the same thing for a game, because it actually required some level of skill in order to do it.

TLDR: Different mediums are different.

What the actual **** ? I swear to God, is it just me? Or is this frontpage similar to last weeks and the week before it?

You can be bad at those things. If you just enjoy movies to look at sideboob and explosions, you are limited from seeing the good stuff, like story and that **** .

Bu... But... You CAN be bad at reading. And you can be blind, or near-sighted and have difficulty watching the movie...

There are different levels of difficulty in every art form, however, they might not be as explicit, try reading Milton's Paradise Lost or T.S. Eliot's the Waste Land and then tell me that literature doesn't require intelligence or skill
