You ever look at something and you’re not sure whether to laugh or not? This video game comic is so close to reality that I am experiencing that exact conundrum. I do find it funny, but at the same time it’s like holding a mirror up to reality.
In general, playing video games aren’t going to make you fatter, but unless you’re playing something like Wii Fit they’re probably not going to make you any thinner either. A sedentary lifestyle is just a byproduct of having more and more modern conveniences. As such it takes more personal will power to make the effort to do something physical and the fact that video games offer access to instant gratification doesn’t make that effort any easier to make.
