    Gamer logic? The point behind my post was to highlight how important it is for us to focus on healthy hobbies. In this age of the media, children and young adults are increasingly choosing gaming as a hobby over reading books. This is an alarming habit especially in a huge third-world country like ours where media, not the text, has becoming a primary source of knowledge. Analyse most of my posts on this forum. You'll notice a pattern wherein i take the time to deeply deliberate and properly construct posts instead of shooting posts left-right-front-and-centre. Not convincing enough? Recall the number of times i've tried bringing up important issues related to gender on this forum only to be shot down by ludicrous reverse arguments. My posts were at worst controversial but in no way inappropriate. My behaviour has been closer to that of saint compared to some of the senseless cat-fights on this forum. Of course, nobody would notice that because they're too busy trying to turn everything that i say into some kind of competition if not drawing absurd correlations, say, contrasting a single person's diet with the alarming consumption of media by a particular age-group.

    Why some venture capitalists talk about gender (and others don’t) I found this article illuminating and agree with everything that Melinda Gates has to say. I was always under the impression that Venture Capital firms were unbiased if not completely gender blind. With the kind of clout they possess, i wouldn't fault someone for thinking that all VC firms should be leading the charge with respect to :- 1) Resolving issues regarding sexism and gender discrimination. 2) Encouraging a spirit of entrepreneurship amongst women.

    I was trying to highlight how important it is for parents and grown-ups to encourage healthy reading habits in their children when they are young. If War and Peace is much too heavy, then try something else. Don't let the experience discourage you. Discovering my grandparent's collection of books and the little encouragement i received during my formative years helped shape me into who i am today, for better or worse. One positive outcome was that i did not succumb to messaging craze when i was in my teens because i refused to give into peer pressure. Plus the crazy sms lingo put me off. Try not to take this the wrong way but what you're hinting at is basically unsupervised parenting, which isn't what i was trying to suggest in my earlier post.

    War & Peace at the age of eight?! Yikes!!! I started reading fiction at a very young age. Can't remember exactly when but it was probably year or two after i got hooked onto comic books (Archies and DC) when i discovered my grandparent’s library. Having noticed my newfound interest, my grandmother introduced me to Enid Blyton as well as a few books from the Billy Bunter series. Afterwards, i took to Clive Cussler and Alistair MacLean at a time when Doordarshan kept broadcasting Poirot and Derrick over-and-over. But it wasn't until i discovered The Fan Club by Irving Wallace that i took reading seriously! [emoji14] I wouldn't recommend this book to any parent looking to encourage their prepubescent children to develop good reading habits. Luckily, my mother is a single parent. Mills & Boon and some books by Danielle Steele and Jackie Collins helped temper this experience. I can vaguely remember my mother reading books by Sidney Sheldon, Jack Higgins, John Grisham and Jeffrey Archer. Michael Crichton was more to my taste. Are any members here fans of science fiction thrillers?

    I stand by my observation. But i'll respond in detail only after gameplay footage has been released to the public.

    @ALPHA17 Pretty sure @HEMAN is confusing the new visual presentation & art direction for poor quality.

    What's wrong with a little self-control?

    You read that right. I plan on doing something productive for once this Holiday season.
  13. Forza Motorsport 7

    Did a little research and bought the Ultimate Edition. But i've already planned to spend the Holiday season reading a few bestsellers first and then catching up on my backlog. So i don't plan on playing the game until after the Holiday season. Might probably put off trying the game until Feb' next year.

    The game is on sale right now. For those who've purchased the Deluxe and Ultimate editions, are they worth purchasing over the standard edition?

    Thanks Zodka! I researched the internet and found that there aren't many monitors presently available that meet my specification
