Maybe they do when we do. Not mine.... Duh.. The character you use in First Person Shooter games never blinks.. That's not true at all. Actually, ever since FPS exist, the designers use a complex algortihm, first discovered by eduard aug, who, for the game Doom, programme 8crap fps

That's not true at all. Actually, ever since FPS exist, the designers use a complex algortihm, first discovered by eduard aug, who, for the game Doom, programmed a function which makes your character blink at the exact same moment you blink, so it wouldn't produce an inconvenience, by blacking out the screen shortly.

But how would a program know when to blink exactly when I blink?
I have never seen this, I've even tried this out by staring at the screen for a prolonged amount of time without blinking.

The characters don't blink, and I haven't found a game where they do unless for cutscene purposes.

They install an asian on the video game so it reads your mind.

just because you use the words "complex algorithm" does not make your point believable, if your not a troll i will loose so much faith in humanity.

there is a huge difference between making a joke and being a troll.
Look it up some time.

There is also a line between a legitimate comment pointing out something you said wrong. and being upset.

Please read the manual you got when you first started the internet, that will explain everything.

Whenever I go through my daily life, I never see a "black screen", it just happens too fast. Or maybe your body just ignores it? (Like your eyes ignore your nose)

You can almost never see your own feet or lower body either, no matter how much you look down.

In Halo you can stick your own foot and become a suicide bomber with that.

Well, somehow makes sense, that they don't you... if you are playing a game, you ARE the character for that time. So it should be enough if your real-life part blinks, eh?
