I started this job in 1995, and I felt the same pressure in my first day, with my first team, Reggiana, in the Second Division, as I feel now. Nothing has changed, but what changes are the number of games, especially for top teams. For this reason, the work has pressure. But only this.

The big problem that is holding back Linux is games. People don’t realize how critical games are in driving consumer purchasing behavior. We want to make it as easy as possible for the 2,500 games on Steam to run on Linux as well.
Every player had a roommate for out-of-town games, so I had to slip into the bathroom early each morning and secretly take my insulin injection. I feared that if the Cubs found out and I slumped badly, they would attribute it to the diabetes and send me back to the minors – or worse, release me.
The only thing I shall talk about is my sporting achievements at school. My primary sporting achievement at school was that I dodged games for two complete years and was well through the third year before they discovered that I had completely avoided all games.
Every season is a new challenge to me, and I always set out to improve in terms of games, goals, assists.
First of all, I don’t dislike direct storytelling – people seem to think that about my games! Actually, the truth is, I’m just not good at implementing direct narrative in my games.
I think most people played both variants and regular games. It was a period when variants were very popular and there were a lot more variants being played at that time. Every week practically, it seemed someone would publish a new variant in a zine.
The Olympic Games were created for the exhaltation of the individual athlete.
I make funny videos of me playing video games, and I share those moments.
I approach video games the same way I approach theatre, filmmaking, poetry, or painting. I wish more people would take that point of view. It would help the industry to move on.
I’ll do whatever it takes for us to win games of cricket. If I have to sledge, I’ll get involved like that. I’ll try and intimidate a player if I have to.
I want to win games, want to win championships. I want to go to the World Cup. I want to win a World Cup. I want to play in Champions League. I want to have fun throughout all of that, and I want my family to be a part of that through the entire path.
I don’t like games. You’re robbing the precious time of children to be children. They need to be in touch with the real world more.
I didn’t have any brothers or sisters, so I did a lot of stuff where I entertained myself playing games, reading a lot, a lot of fantasy novel stuff.
We try to make games we want to make for the sake of making fun games and not necessarily to make a profit.
The Olympics were great, because you had to make the team, and then go to the games. Now, I don’t know, these guys today don’t want to do anything like that.
‘Gears Of War’ is one of my favourite games that I immersed myself in playing for long time, and Mr. Cliff Bleszinski is one of the greatest game creators that I respect.
For me, inventing video games was just one successful thing I had done among many others.
The most important thing is that you can make tough decisions, discipline people when you need to, but also create a spirit to get the ultimate thing you’re aiming for, which is winning enough games.
I grew up in the Cayman Islands. I didn’t play video games or watch TV. I would basically come home from school, throw down my backpack, grab my machete, and go hike and chop down trees to make a fort.
10,000 athletes go and compete at an Olympic Games, only 300 go back with a gold medal, the number is very, very less.
I love games. My favorite thing on this planet to do is to play games. And if you don’t enjoy games, then you’re really missing the point of what this life is.
The 1980s was a time of the great recession of interactive entertainment. When Atari fell in 1982, until Nintendo launched its console, video games were an outcast for five years.
The intention behind the high difficulty of the games I direct is to evoke a feeling of joy and accomplishment in the player when they overcome these challenges.
I may play some exhibition games so I don’t want to quit the game of chess completely. I just decided and it’s a firm decision not to play competitive chess anymore.
In Spain, they show many Premier League games on TV, and it is an inspirational league. Maybe I would like to play in the Premier League.
Games bring another level out in you. There is no way you can train to the same intensity when you are playing a game. It is just impossible. Your head won’t allow you to do it. Because the adrenalin of a game and the importance of it steps it up to another level.
My manager introduced me to the ‘Rise to Honor’ team. I was curious about what it took to be involved in video games, a completely new form of entertainment to me.
The reason I know about ‘Tomb Raider’ is from when I was researching ‘Elephant.’ It was 1999, and I was trying to research the Columbine-massacre kids, and they had played video games, and I, at the time, had never really seen one. It was a world I didn’t know.
If I play all the IPL games the whole season, I do get a bit tired towards the end.
Oh, the miraculous energy that flows between two people who care enough to get beyond surfaces and games, who are willing to take the risks of being totally open, of listening, of responding with the whole heart. How much we can do for each other.
Other fans might stop coming to games when their teams fall in the standings. Blazers fans just pack the house even more.
I think what television and video games do is reminiscent of drug addiction. There’s a measure of reinforcement and a behavioural loop.
Eighty-two games, it’s a long season.
And I suggested to change very simple way to Olympic Games, in one competition, two different levels. Separate from, until sixteen, and after sixteen years old.
When you’re winning games, everyone thinks everything the manager says and does is fantastic. Then it goes the other way, and those earlier criticisms of players can backfire.
Golf is a game, and games are meant to be enjoyed.
If you’re going to play at all, you’re out to win. Baseball, board games, playing Jeopardy, I hate to lose.
It should be noted that children at play are not playing about; their games should be seen as their most serious-minded activity.
In ‘The Hunger Games,’ in most people’s idea, in terms of rebellion or a civil-war situation, that would meet the criteria for a necessary war. These people are oppressed, their children are being taken off and put in gladiator games. They’re impoverished, they’re starving, they’re brutalized.
I’m not very good at action games in general and find most action games to be hard.
At the most elite level, your nutrition becomes a lifestyle: it’s not something you have to do when you’re preparing for Olympic games or World Cup games – you just do it. You’re more inclined to eat healthier because it’s better for your muscles.
Football players have always got a problem, some pain, and in some games, I have had small problems with my knee or some pain, and I played anyway, but people don’t know if I have a problem or not. People just know if you score a goal or if you play badly, but they never know if you are well or not.
Some players don’t like training and I’ve seen some players who aren’t bothered if they play or not. But I want to play every game. Sometimes you have to rest in certain games, but I want to play in every game.
Obviously I want to be there at the end every time, winning games for the team.
We are a game developer ourselves, and we built everything we need for our games. We share everything we built, including our game engine.
To the best of my knowledge, a lot of people who play video games also play tabletop games and vice versa.
To be honest, I think I am making normal games targeted towards normal people. But ultimately when I release those normal games, weird people find them to be weird games and enjoy them. Which probably means there’s something wrong with me.
Casino games are the one kind of content that has stood the test of time for decades.
Humor is the most precious gift I can give to my reader, a reminder that the world is not such a terribly serious place. There is more than video games and drugs and nuclear threats; there is laughter, and there is hope.
I’m pretty good at video games, but I’m the champ when it comes to pinball, and that’s just because it’s old-fashion like I am. I can’t get enough of pinball.
I’m a games and theory kind of guy. I love puzzles, so it was fun dissecting Shakespeare’s prose.
I like people who enjoy life. I can’t stand women who play games. I lose interest very quickly. I prefer up-front honesty.
I got to prepare more for the games. I got to be ready for better players and starting lineups, just get a bit more focused, more prepared and got to be in better shape.
By the new year of 1994, it had grown up into Inform 4 and could produce games twice as large.
So, if falling crime rates coincide with the rise of violent video games and increasing violence on TV and at the cinema, should we conclude that media violence is causing the drop in crime rates?
It wasn’t like it is now. But for the types of teams we had, the fans were very good here. On some Thursday afternoon games, we’d get 25,000 fans. That was remarkable. This has always been a great Red Sox city.
At every Olympic Games, anything can happen that nobody can predict, so I did my best to win.
I’m human. I have bad games, I have bad moments, but that’s me. I cannot stay on the floor, knocked out. I have to keep going.
Any time you can get the ball back to the offense and they put points on the board, you can win games.
I create, for whatever reason, a busy schedule, but I watch hockey, all the games, either on the PC or TV. The world is now HD, and this is very good.
I ran the effort to bring the 2012 Olympic Games to New York City. We lost – on a global scale. To my surprise, life went on, and I learnt that nobody cares about your failures as much as you do.
You’d go in, read the script once for timing and then you would sit around and play games. The sound effects people would come in and we would do a dress rehearsal so they could get the effects and the music cues in place. Then you would wait until you went on the air.
I don’t even play video games because I don’t like losing.
My main goal is trying to win games and a championship.
The more games you coach, the more comfortable you feel.
Some people think its just fun and games and others don’t know how much I pushed to get here. They have to be in my shoes, but by listening to my music they can find out.

Nevertheless, the mode, the justification, and all the games involved in this war were dishonest.
I think that PC gaming is as healthy as it’s ever been. I think there’s probably more people playing games on their PCs, I just don’t think they’re gamers.
The math works. Over the course of a season, there’s some predictability to baseball. When you play 162 games, you eliminate a lot of random outcomes. There’s so much data that you can predict: individual players’ performances and also the odds that certain strategies will pay off.
I keep my face covered during concerts. That’s just something that is part of me, an artist, and I think it’s a cool concept and look. It is really inspired by my love for video games, especially with the videogame ‘Watchdog’ that I love.
I went to five Olympic Games and my favorite is Sydney.
Gamers have this tendency to turn games into mathematical equations, breaking them into lists of components like ‘presentation’ and ‘mechanics’ and judging each one on its own merits.
There’s a handful of situations already in two games – some hits I don’t need to take – and I’m taking them because I’m stringing out the play.
We’ve been playing games since humanity had civilization – there is something primal about our desire and our ability to play games. It’s so deep-seated that it can bypass latter-day cultural norms and biases.
I always wanted to experience 50 games at least in a season because all the top players in the world, they do that every year.
I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
If pushed, though, I’d say that the next stage will be reached when it it’s no longer true that about 75% of the best games were written in 1980’s on the way to that.
Man, if I made one million dollars I would come in at six in the morning, sweep the stands, wash the uniforms, clean out the office, manage the team and play the games.
The childhood games ended for me when I was 14 and I finished school. I had to find a job, not an easy thing in those days.
My only goal is to play 162 games and help this team win. If I can do that, everything will take care of itself.
The first few games that we played against some of the teams, the young guys, you know, want a stick sign or photo sign, and I think that they respect what I have achieved throughout my career.
When you don’t win games, yeah, you lose confidence. That’s normal.
During the season, I usually work out two or three times a week. I’ll do a full-body workout after games. I plan it out the day of.
The internet is a wild land with its own games, languages and gestures through which we are starting to share common feelings.
If you’re not catfishing someone for romantic reasons, then it’s going to be hard to sympathize and be compassionate with someone who is doing it for revenge, who’s doing it for fun and games, who’s doing it because they want to be on TV.
As fresh as I can be in the games, the better.
I learned from Chuck Noll in Pittsburgh that speed and explosiveness on defense is the way to build a team. Both are difficult for your opponent to assimilate in practice and then in games it is even harder to match.
To win those big games you’re going to have to complete some third-down passes, you’re going to have to be able to get some explosive games in the passing game.
Once-dominant games like straight pool and three-cushion billiards have lost ground to eight-ball – the game of choice for millions of tavern league players – and nine-ball, the preeminent tournament game.

We typically don’t choose our athletes until about a month prior to the Games because anything can happen.
I like some shooters, and I respect games like Doom, but I don’t think it’s right for me.
It’s not ideal for me to miss any time. I love the game. I want to be out there. I can’t stand sitting the back watching games. I want to be out there fighting with my team.
Most ball games are lost, not won.
The bottom line is winning. I want to do what we need to do to win football games.
Quite simply the Games are the biggest opportunity sport in this country has ever had. It is one that we must not squander.

The Olympic Games are the quadrennial celebration of the springtime of humanity.
There is no problem that doesn’t have some underlying need for more optimism, stamina, resilience and collaboration. And games are, I believe, the best platform we have for providing that.
Everybody is playing games. There are games now for pretty much every age, every demographic.
Over the season, the games come thick and fast, and in some games, you aren’t so lucky.
Games I do find interesting for what they say about us, about what we wish for, about the programming. But let it stop there: don’t listen to this rubbish about them actually being good for you, helping with hand-eye co-ordination or whatever. They’re games. They prepare you for nothing.
Baseball has better opening days and All-Star Games than the N.F.L. does. Ours stink.
We turn off the TV, video games and computer – except for homework – during the week. The TV’s reserved for Friday night, Saturday and Sunday just because that’s the time to do homework, and it makes it that much less chaotic in our house.
Some boys accepted me, some didn’t. And my family had comments made to them. Brazil is still a very macho society, and sports are mainly for boys, so people would say to them: ‘What is this girl doing? Why is she always out there in the soccer games with the boys?’
The Khelo India University Games is a great way to unearth talent in this country.
Most of the people who had PCs did not have modems and could not use those PCs as communicating devices. They really were using them for spreadsheets or word processing or storing recipes or playing games or what have you.
You have so many games to play, and you can do well in one game but bad in the other ones. The thing you’ve got to be is consistent.
To be honest, I’ve never been interested in how many games I’ve done and seen. It doesn’t mean anything to anybody. All I know is I’m eternally grateful for having been allowed to work so many games.
But if you can’t relish playing in big games like this then it’s not worth it.
The Olympic Games are for the world and all nations must be admitted to them.
There were probably about five games in my career where everything was moving in slow motion and you could be out there all day, totally in the zone, and you don’t even know where you are on the field, everything is just totally blocked out.
When I was young, we didn’t have indie games. We had ‘garage developers’ or similar terms, who were just small teams making games out of passion.
I’ve been on teams that lost a hundred games in a season. I’ve been on teams that had a shot to make the playoffs and fizzled out at the end.
Everything is very black and white for me. I don’t really like playing mind games.
Years and years ago, I did a game based on ‘Hitchhiker’s Guide’ with a company called Infocom, which was a great company. They were doing witty, intelligent, literate games based on text.
I play really hard. I put my body on the line every damn practice. Every day in the games. That’s my passion. That’s how I give to the game.
To be great we need to win games we aren’t supposed to win.
Sarri taught me football. He is a coach I really like, well-prepared and even scientific in the way he analyses games.
My community was built on a foundation of organic growth through watching people play video games.
I love short track. I competed in short track, I was a world champion in 1986 but at that point in time it wasn’t in the Olympic Games so I moved into long track. Short track is a blast to skate and it’s a blast to watch.
Personally, I really enjoy sci-fi. I watch it, I read comic books, and I play video games. I love this kind of world, so to be able to work in it is a dream. I enjoy it.
People think I played 10 years. I only played 68 games.
Watching Eagles games with my dad, whether at the vet or in our house, was a big part of my childhood.
Sometimes you can lose games unluckily or the other team is better than you and has a great day as well. That can happen in football.
Most other competitions are individual achievements, but the Olympic Games is something that belongs to everybody.
As a co-chair of the State’s 2010 Olympics Task Force, I am working to make sure our border crossings are ready to handle the risks and benefits the Games will bring.
I’m not a very fancy person. I’ve been a writer a long time, and right now ‘The Hunger Games’ is getting a lot of focus. It’ll pass. The focus will be on something else. It’ll shift. It always does. And that seems just fine.
By shifting your focus to the princess and treating your life’s challenges like video games, you can trick your brain and actually learn more and see more success.
I’ve got five grandkids. They play baseball, they play football, they play basketball. I go to all the games. You always have that urge to say something when you’re watching them. But I’ve learned to keep it to myself. I’ve blurted out some things and embarrassed myself.
Most one run games are lost, not won.
Those market researchers… are playing games with you and me and with this entire country. Their so-called samples of opinion are no more accurate or reliable than my grandmother’s big toe was when it came to predicting the weather.
Sometimes games may not go the way you plan it, and sometimes you have to do the dirty, gritty stuff well – you have to tackle; you have to run. I learned that when I was young, and it is a good feeling to work hard for the team, to get the ball back.
I play my Xbox and PlayStation at home. Then, when I’m on the road, I’ll bring my Vita with me to play games like ‘Snake Eater.’
When I’m on planes, I’d talk to people and I’d tell them I compete in the X Games. Some would know what it was, but maybe half didn’t. But everyone knows about the Olympics. They’re really like the X Games for the world!
I just went to your typical public schools, and my dad would take us to the movies every week, or he’d buy scalped tickets to San Antonio Spurs games. I remember I was four or five years old and my parents, who were very young, took us to see The Police in Austin, and Iggy Pop opened.
I got beat real hard and heavy in the Olympic Games in 1968 by a guy who swam an incredible race one time in his whole life, but he did it right at the right time. I’d like to be that guy now. Maybe that’s what I’m going to have to pull out of my hat to make the Olympic team.
Klopp would reproach me for not tracking back properly. I took things on board, and I listened to him. I worked hard in training; I stayed behind after training. That’s what helped me to shine in the Bundesliga because I scored quite a lot of goals despite some difficult games in the league.
I can shoot pool, and I can play ping-pong. I’m pretty good at those games.
I think average players are able to play well now and again, or they’ll play very, very well. Good players or great players, nine times out of ten, they have good games.
I have to work hard and give my all in games and training sessions.
The issue of the Betrayal was so central to that, I felt the need to comment upon it. My choices were to ignore the games and put them ‘outside’ of continuity or to integrate them. I chose the latter.
The problem stems from the ADHD. The nutty behavior. You have got all this energy going and you can’t focus on anything. It’s like games at school – like football. I couldn’t play because I couldn’t understand the rules. I couldn’t get offside. I just couldn’t take in the rules.
After I read ‘The Hunger Games,’ I went out and got ‘Catching Fire’ the next day.
In the time between records, I always have lots of stuff going on. I shoot photography, make little sculptures, play video games.
The only legitimate use of a computer is to play games.
Working with franchises can be challenging, but at the same time I really did enjoy working on ‘Star Wars,’ for example, and I have done a lot of ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ games, but I still enjoy it very much.
When I was working on the first ‘Dark Souls’ – as far back as ‘Demon’s Souls,’ actually – I didn’t expect the player community to come up with speedrun contests or any of the strange new ways to play the games.
The relations between rhetoric and ethics are disturbing: the ease with which language can be twisted is worrisome, and the fact that our minds accept these perverse games so docilely is no less cause for concern.
Often times, political games prevent senators from even beginning to debate some of the most important issues.
If you’re going to win games, you’re going to have to come up with the big hits. That’s the bottom line.
We’re just going to come out and play. We know that we’re supposed to win all the games, but if we don’t, we just have to take the next game and focus on what we did wrong in the game before and just try to do better at the next game.
What matters is the team and all of us being focused on what we need to focus on, which is winning games, rather than contracts or any topics that can be a distraction. What matters is focusing on football.
The only way you can get match fitness is by playing games.
Holding an Olympic Games means evoking history.
There was a lot of passion with Klopp, I felt that most in the dressing room before games. He always had a big smile. He hugged every player. I loved his attitude – he was never nervous. He gave us confidence.
Yeah, that’s what kind of, we get the idea a little bit yeah, because other people from different countries also try as hard as they can to get a medal or a gold medal in the Olympic Games. And you know, if they can work hard, we can work hard as well.
I love to play games. I really like football, and I also like to ride horses.
But I think what Liam said just kind of hit it spot on, that the people in the capital are brainwashed and such a disconnect with what’s actually happening. They don’t realize what if it was their kids that were being put into the games? They just don’t have the mindset to have that kind of compassion for people.
I’m in the business to make games – I love entertaining people.
The problem is that when Argentina doesn’t play well – and the same is true of Barcelona – the press think it is easy to blame Messi. We have seen time and time again that he wins games on his own when the team is not performing – but the media expect him to always be the hero.
The basic idea of Games With a Purpose is that we are taking a problem that computers cannot yet solve, and we are getting people to solve it for us while they are playing a game.
I love working on games, it is my life.
Video games and YouTube.com are creatively booming, even though Web design, as demonstrated by the ugly clutter of most major news sites, is in the pits.
The thing that excites me most technologically is the ability to use VR not just for games and displaying our content, but also for creating that content. We’re putting a lot of thought into what the Unreal Engine editor looks like as a VR application.
I wish I could go to the school where my close friends go, but I obviously can’t. The good thing is, they’re really good about inviting me to all the football games and all that stuff. So I end up having an adopted team spirit for a school I don’t go to.
I play some fighting games, but mostly I just play sports.
No, I do not want to sacrifice four days for two games. My time is too valuable to do that.
I’m into classic games like Donkey Kong, and also collect vintage tour t-shirts – everything from Olivia Newton-John to Duran Duran. I’ve got a Chicago one worth $100.
The triple is the most exciting play in baseball. Home runs win a lot of games, but I never understood why fans are so obsessed with them.
The only other thing that’s like video games for me is watching tennis on TV. I can have it on, and there’s a rhythmic quality to it – I can be watching Wimbledon or the U.S. Open and still be working.
The way Michael Vick uses his legs and is able to throw out of the pocket really changes games. The way that Aaron Rodgers is able to sit in the pocket and make throws that not a lot of people can make – I hope I can be half what those guys are and emulate it into my game.
It takes about eight years to develop as an Olympic athlete, very few athletes actually who go there win medal in their first Games.
That’s what I do now: I lead and I teach. If we win basketball games from doing that, then that’s great, but I lead and teach. Those are the two things I concentrate on.
There are some games where I will look to be more aggressive and score more, and then there are games that I want to be more of a playmaker.
I’d been ready too, because before Olympic Games, I wasn’t compete in big competition like, World Championship, like European Championship. I just competed in national competition.
I have this set-up at my house where I have one big movie theater screen that’s 9 ft. by 16 ft. Then, I have nine 63-inch monitors around it; four on either side and one underneath. So I get all nine one o’clock games, and I can switch them onto the big screen. That’s what I do on the Sundays during the season.
Political analysis is full of chess metaphors, reflecting an old tradition of seeing games as models of physical and social reality.
I’ve always loved to play games, and face it: investing is one big game. You need to be decisive, open-minded, flexible and competitive.
I watched my idol and fellow Dutchman Tiesto. He was the first DJ to play live on stage at an Olympic event – the Opening Ceremony of the 2004 Summer Olympic Games in Athens. At eight years old, all I can remember thinking was, ‘I want to be a DJ.’
I’m blown away by the graphical detail of today’s games. I can’t imagine that it’s going to get any better, but it’s just going to continually progress and soon we’ll be living in that world.
I think video games and that stuff should be as violent as possible, but age-appropriate. It should be realistic. When it’s not realistic you run into kids running around shooting people and not realizing the consequences.
Stop making the same games about shooting something and driving; try something else. There is a market for that.
The console games, as they come out with this new generation, will have a temporary advantage in price performance, but there are still many things you can do on a PC, more conveniently than you can do on a console machine.
There are one-hundred fifty-four games in a season and you can find one-hundred fifty-four reasons why your team should have won every one of them.
I missed a few key basketball games, AAU games, because I didn’t finish my homework.
This independent report clearly indicates that while we may differ among ourselves in government about what to spend money on, we have one of the most reliable and non-political processes for agreeing on how much money there is. We don’t play games with the numbers.
I’m not making any excuses. I got my butt kicked in certain games.
I still want to see the Lin-Lee rivalry; those games always bring great fun for the fans.
Also at the top of the list was my three day appearance on ‘Press Your Luck’. In addition to the intense competition of each of those games, it slowly started to dawn on me in the minutes between tapings that I was winning some serious money.
We can’t let the USMCA become another casualty of political games.
I agree with Klopp, the Nations League is a ridiculous competition. There is no sense in playing these games. It’s not a real competition that you have to win. You can call these games whatever you want, but the fact is they are friendly games!
The most important thing is win enough games to get into the playoffs. Then, once you get into the playoffs, win.
I try to not put two bad games together.
This circus games aspect has existed since the beginning of my career.
Right now, more people enjoy movies, music, television and movies than they do video games.
It seems astounding to me now that the video games are perhaps as important as the movie themselves. And people will spend 2 or 3 years obsessing about the video game in exactly the same way that they’d be obsessing about the movie if they were working on that.
I spent my whole life trying to play the games males play.
I did pretty well at the Sydney Olympics, but those were my first Games.
Performance matters because games are built on great performance, but form factor and energy efficiency matter incredibly because they want to build something that’s portable and transformable.
The park achieved a kind of reality. Like these virtual reality games the children are playing with. I told them we were doing this 40 years ago! Disneyland is virtual reality.
I became an optimist when I discovered that I wasn’t going to win any more games by being anything else.
If these are the last 34 games of my NBA career, I want them played as tough as I can.
I think the reason that I like so many different games is because I like the way my brain works when I’m playing games. It’s more fun.
Gerard Houllier is a great coach. He made me grow. He gave me chances in big games, which raised my confidence. It opened my eyes to what I could do. It was through him that I managed to trust myself.
Just make games for yourself and try to have a critical eye to what you do. If you genuinely like the game, there will be other people who like it as well.
I liked hacking into and pirating computer games while in college. One of my favorites was Bethesda’s ‘Terminator 2029.’ So I drove to their offices and asked for a job.
There are so many YA novels being made because there is so much young talent that can bring it to life. J-Law was one of the first females to do it with ‘The Hunger Games,’ and it’s been going on for a while now. With J-Law, it was like, ‘Hey, I’m Katniss,’ and then, ‘Hey, I just won an Oscar!’
If I’m sitting at home playing video games, and I’ve got a couple of minutes to myself before bed, I’m listening to music and putting a couple of playlists together. I’m passionate about music.
I play games.
I liked playing video games because I felt like I was inside of the story in a way that I didn’t feel when I was just watching something. Any chance I could get to step into the shoes of another person, I would take. I couldn’t get enough of stories.
Elections are zero-sum games. That means that there’s always one winner and a lot of losers. If you just get one more vote than the other person, you win that election.
What we do is nothing like the portrayal of badminton as a gentle game played in a church hall. Badminton can be fun and relaxing, but as professionals, this sport is our heart and soul and passion, and our games are fast and aggressive.
I have figured out it’s not what you do on the field, it’s how many games you play in.
Both the ‘Gregor’ series and ‘The Hunger Games’ are what I call lightning-bolt ideas. There was a moment where the idea came to me. With ‘The Hunger Games,’ the lightning bolt sort of hit at a moment when I was channel surfing between reality TV and the coverage of the Iraq war.
Qualifying for the Olympic Games was one of those moments where you just cry because it was like you’ve climbed Mount Everest.
I actually have the Arcade PC at home, and it has 5,500 games on it. Everything from the old school, Galaga, Tron, Missile Command, anything you can think of, they’re all on there. I love the old school games.
Look around on your next plane trip. The iPad is the new pacifier for babies and toddlers. Younger school-aged children read stories on smartphones; older boys don’t read at all, but hunch over video games. Parents and other passengers read on Kindles or skim a flotilla of email and news feeds.
I’ve always been a proponent of the idea that technology doesn’t matter to game design. The example I always like to point out is ‘Tetris,’ one of the greatest games ever made.
I like video games, I like tech, I like being positive.
The guys who play in midfield and up front are the ones who decide games.
I don’t feel pressure going into games.
Of course, when it comes to Japanese role-playing games, in any role-playing game in Japan you’re supposed to collect a huge number of items, and magic, and you’ve got to actually combine different items together to make something really different.
My whole career I’m used to playing a lot of games.
Video games and computers have become babysitters for kids.
You have guys that are all over the field that are making a lot of plays, you’ll win a lot of games in the NFL.
I wish to clarify that I have absolutely not made a decision regarding my participation in the next Olympics. On a personal level, playing in the Olympics would be a huge honour. However, the Games in Rio are still four years away and I certainly won’t be making any decisions with regards to participating any time soon.
My son taught me a few tricks about card games and Rishona spent time painting with me. She would also make us dalgona coffee at times. These small joys of family life have made me a very happy person.
It was probably ‘Contra’ – ‘Contra’ was the game that really got me into video games.
Gotham Games called me, and I could not be more thrilled. I’ve been waiting to be in a video game forever, so when they called there was no hesitation.
Rio is going to be my fifth Olympic games – it’s been a long journey but a rewarding one, I would say.
In BJP & RSS, there are good people I respect, but some are playing dirty games.
It has been a fantastic journey. I have gone to five Games, broke the Olympics record in 2004 in Athens and won a gold medal as well in Beijing. I have had a good run at the Olympics.
The head-banging music gives me a headache. Katy Perry is fun, Rihanna, old-school ’90s hip-hop. Salt-N-Pepa. I like listening to that. Get the nerves out before the games.
When I was a teenager, I felt my life was constrained by rules, school, my parents. I wanted to feel like I was empowered and different; that’s why superheroes, comics, manga, and video games filled my needs. When I got older, I realized power is not free; it comes with responsibility.
The gold medals from world championships and National Games prove the efficiency of my daily training.
A player is said to have the opposition when he can place his King directly in front of the adverse King, with only one square between them. This is often an important advantage in ending games.
I happen to believe that video games will be the largest sport and entertainment in the world. The reason for that is a video game can be every sport. You can be anybody.
A lot of rookies hit the wall after 50 or 60 games.
I loved playing ‘Ultima.’ Getting my computer in college and playing ‘Wing Commander.’ I hear a lot from our fans, and they are the same way. Games are where I want to be.
My idea of childcare at festivals is to sit at a trestle table with an ale while the kids run around and make up their own games.
I don’t get nervous in any situation. There’s no such thing as nerves when you’re playing games.
‘The Hunger Games’ isn’t for everybody. But neither is ‘Anna Karenina.’
I’ll be here in my home with three big screens. I’ll be watching three games at a time, and when they’re over, I’ll look at three more.
At some point he seemed to lose all confidence trying to break down the Berlin Wall. He was still fighting as only Kasparov can, but I could see it in his eyes that he knew he wasn’t going to win one of these games.
Poker has such an element of competitivness that other games don’t have.
I use a lot of utility apps on my iPad, and I have four kinds of ‘Angry Birds’ games! I also use GarageBand to create demos.
If I’m a guy reading a newspaper, and I hear this actor who I know gets great seats at basketball games, and he’s complaining about being typecast, I think, ‘Hey man, count your blessings.’
I played football for a team called the East Dragons on the east side of town. We only had six regular season games. And six games I played tail back and I had 18 touchdowns in six games. That’s when I knew I had some athletic ability.
Kids just don’t read any more. They spend much more time with video games. It’s just hard to get kids to read anything. Book sales have dropped dramatically, too. I think 90% of the books are bought only by 5% of the US population.
I had only played five games in my senior year in high school. I was not large enough. Hell, when I graduated, I was about five foot four and weighed 120 pounds. I didn’t go with the Dodgers until spring training of 1940 and I weighed all of 155 pounds soaking wet.
I was not a cool kid. There was no reason for me to be marginalised. I was just a nerd. I was kind of weird, and I found solace in video games.
Tell me the truth – do you think I’ve lost my Southern accent? I feel it comes back to me only when I’m shouting at fights or at baseball games.
But there is something to the fact that we don’t see games on the West Coast, or we don’t see games on the East Coast, and stuff like that. It’s so unfair, because there is a bias that takes place.
In college, before video games, we would amuse ourselves by posing programming exercises.
I just enjoy playing in the big moments, in the big games.
If I couldn’t broadcast baseball games, I think I would make a good impression on people.
Most people get excited about games, but I’ve got to be excited about practice, because that’s my classroom.
If gaming were seen as an art, the important question would be not whether games are good for us but whether they are good, full stop.
I love playing games, but also training.
I prefer ensemble casts, but with games like ‘Resident Evil 6,’ where there’s just so much dialogue and recording mo-cap, or with ‘Resident Evil: Damnation,’ where the story pace is already set by a previous set of mo-cap actors, it makes more sense to do it individually.
Good pitchers, after a tough outing, bounce back. Real good pitchers don’t let too many poor games get in there.
If I feel I’m not influencing games, not scoring goals or making goals, then that’s the time I’d pack it in.
You can’t just drop everything and focus on playing video games for a living.
I also developed an interest in sports, and played in informal games at a nearby school yard where the neighborhood children met to play touch football, baseball, basketball and occasionally, ice hockey.
Georgia Tech beat us and Mississippi Southern tied us last year, and Texas beat us after we had the game won. We only played about five games the way we were capable of playing and lost one of those.
I don’t think people can watch University of Texas basketball or football games with me – really, anything Texas is playing – without wanting to punch me in the face. I’m as big a Longhorn fan as you’ll find.
If you’re dating the quarterback and then you go out with the hockey player, you just go to the hockey games. I don’t think I’ll still go to the football games.
I want to win football games.
Now I’m president. I get to meet a lot of other company presidents. They’re such weird people. I’m fascinated by them. I use some of them as enemy characters in our games.
I don’t know how many calories an average chess player burns per game, but it often exceeds that of a player in ball games. It is not only the chess as such: You need to be fit and undergo complicated preparation.
You cannot compare warm-ups with World Cup games.
In both games, you have to think fast. In chess you tend to know all the patterns already, just like in football.
There exists in this country, sadly, a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells and stows violence against its own people through vicious and violent video games.
I’ll do whatever it takes to win games, whether it’s sitting on a bench waving a towel, handing a cup of water to a teammate, or hitting the game-winning shot.
Another thing I like to do is sit back and take in nature. To look at the birds, listen to their singing, go hiking, camping and jogging and running, walking along the beach, playing games and sometimes being alone with the great outdoors. It’s very special to me.
I loved Japanese culture before even realizing it was, in fact, Japanese culture. The cartoons and anime I was watching as a child, my favorite video games, and even in pro wrestling – my favorite wrestlers and matches originated in Japan.
The school holidays were always an exciting time in the Brownlee household. This was the opportunity for my brother Alistair and me to escape from the classroom and enjoy the great outdoors. Our childhood was jam-packed with fun family games and activities.
All of us have to win games. Whether we like it or not, the graduation rates and all the things people are talking about aren’t as important as winning.
There are at least two kinds of games. One could be called finite, the other, infinite. A finite game is played for the purpose of winning, an infinite game for the purpose of continuing the play.
I grew up with my little brother, and we were raised by my grandmother. I was an insider for real. I stayed in the house a lot, writing songs or playing video games, watching TV, or chilling with my girlfriend.
He’s a big player, and the big players score the big goals and make the big contributions in the big games. That’s what determines a great player. That’s what Steven Gerrard is.
Actually, as that first association continued, we got a little more legitimate. In those days, they asked Boy Scout troops to act as ushers during the football games. So we signed up and I went to many games in full Boy Scout uniform as an usher.
There are too many games being developed by people that have no business creating games.
I got addicted to Tetris, playing it in my basement, I was missing all these airplane flights over it. After the fourth one that I missed, I realized I needed to get rid of this thing – so ever since then, I don’t play video games any more.
I didn’t grow up playing video games. I grew up catching crawdads in the creek and minnows and lizards and snakes.
One of the times I went to one of the Phillies games, that’s when I met Sammy Sosa.
Everything was happening on that strip of Fulton Street. And if I wanted Chinese food, if I wanted to play video games, if I wanted pizza, if I had to go to the corner story for a juice, I had to go on Fulton Street.
The first audition my manger sent me on was ‘The Hunger Games,’ and I got the role.
In football, the only game I know is the 90-minutes game. It’s not mind games; I don’t try to do that.
My memories of events and games are fragmented.
You know, I have a lot of books on my iPad, but when I try to read them, I find myself wandering off to play games. Those are books I’m interested in. I can’t imagine what would have happened to me in college if my biology class had been on the same computer as ‘Words With Friends’ and ‘Doom.’
While films are a very visual and emotional artistic medium, video games take it one step further into the realm of a unique personal experience.
The only way the confidence comes back is by winning games. You grind out a few results and hopefully with each game you get more confident.
Going 33 games unbeaten is no coincidence.
I would make hockey movies: I would edit together Flyers games and do highlight reels of goals or fights, which I still have to this day.
I’ve met my share of guys who have insulted and assaulted my intelligence with their stories and games. I say hello and goodbye!
When I was growing up, there wasn’t too much technology. There weren’t so many channels that we were glued to on TV. We had to go outside and create our games. Kids had the habit of being active and exercising, just enjoying the fresh air.
I was a very happy child, so to speak. But, since we didn’t have video games or television, and very little radio, in terms of a form of entertainment, I used to read a lot and I would draw a lot, and those two things used to occupy my time.
Today’s Little Leaguers, and there are millions of them each year, pick up how to hit and throw and field just by watching games on TV. By the time they’re out of high school, the good ones are almost ready to play professional ball.
I grew up on games like Madden and NBA Jam, then moved on to NFL 2K on Dreamcast. The game I really loved was Virtua Tennis.
I hope the fans have enjoyed listening as much as I’ve enjoyed doing the games. I don’t ever go to the park where I don’t have a good day. I don’t like losing. But I don’t think I ever go to the park where I have a bad day. I don’t think once.
What joy and adventure the youngsters of today are missing as they sit indoors mucking about with computer games and videos!
I like poems that are little games.
If a man watches three football games in a row, he should be declared legally dead.
I like video games, but they are very violent. I want to create a video game in which you have to help all the characters who have died in the other games. ‘Hey, man, what are you playing?’ ‘Super Busy Hospital. Could you leave me alone? I’m performing surgery! This guy got shot in the head, like, 27 times!’
You must invent your own games and teach us old ones how to play.
That’s what my objective was, to reinvent myself from a console designer to starting a new business and embracing multi-platform, relearning the skills necessary to make successful games. It’s been an amazing journey.
It’s not just about winning or losing, but to learn about teamwork, learn about sportsmanship, learn about discipline. The value of working together for a common goal. Have the emphasis on fundamentals, not just games.
I was always the last one chosen for football games in Central Park.
Mentally, you have to be strong, particularly in away games at the places where the fans are very passionate.
I grew up on 23, country music highway, which is a stretch of road where Ricky Skaggs and Dwight Yoakam and Loretta Lynn played. Driving up and down that on the way to school – to baseball games, to anywhere – you see all these signs commemorating these artists. It was a point of pride for my area growing up.
Kids don’t even read comic books anymore. They’ve got more important things to do – like video games.
Role-playing games have been a huge part of my life and a huge part of my training as a performer – learning social skills, meeting friends, and being a generally competent person – so I owe a lot to role-playing games.
I’m the biggest Blackhawks fan ever. I’ve been going to games since I was 6 years old.
I kept these games pretty intimate. You know, with this much money on the table, with this much risk, you wanted to make people feel safe. They don’t want to feel like they’re part of a spectator’s sport – well, the winners do, but the losers do not.
The only time I waste is time I spend doing something that, in my gut, I know I shouldn’t. If I choose to spend time playing video games or sleeping in, then it’s time well spent, because I chose to do it. I did it for a reason – to relax, to decompress or to feel good, and that was what I wanted to do.
As of right now, I have no desire. I’ve watched several games and played pickup ball thinking I’d have the feeling I’d like to get back, but I didn’t have that feeling. I don’t really miss the game.
The guerrilla fighters should be required to go to bed and get up at fixed hours. Games that have no social function and that hurt the morale of the troops and the consumption of alcoholic drinks should both be prohibited.
