Games aren't beneficial

This is something we gamers hear at some point in our lives, and we go like “have you even played games?” There are tons of games that are fun yet beneficial, like Kerbal Space Program, Civilization and FoldIt, which don't even have niche audiences.

Can you fix the computer for me?

Gamers don't have friends

There's a notion that a person who games more frequently lacks a social life. We do have normal social lives and even a larger virtual, vibrant friend circle that's not restricted to a single location.

Video games aren't art

There are years and years of preparation and skill that goes behind the art design of a game. It isn't a joke anymore. Open up any new title and you'll realise how beautiful things look. There's a reason why there's a separate BAFTA Games Awards.
