Health Consequences of Gaming

Posted by on Jul 12, 2014 in Healthy Gaming Habits | 0 comments

You’ve been searching all day. You’ve traveled hundreds of miles, sometimes backtracking to make sure you haven’t missed anything. Some areas are so infested with hostile creatures that you’ve been prevented from continuing on your journey until the creatures were destroyed. After all that, you’ve finally … finally, found what you’ve been looking for – the secret passage that transports you to another place. You’ve moved up to the next level! You’re so excited that you barely notice how much your back hurts, nor do you notice that you’re on the verge of getting a migraine headache … again. Believe me, I’ve been there.

It may sound like a strange story to any non-gamers here, but it’s all too familiar for us gamers.

My Trip to Japan and The Tokyo Game Show!

It would be a damn shame to lose everything you’ve collected in an unfortunate fire or flood. While you may choose to have your collection insured by your renter’s or home-owner’s insurance, there are certain things you will have to take into consideration so you don’t get bitten in the ass by your insurance company.

For example, if your house was broken into, but the burglar only stole one console, then the individual value of the item would have to be assessed. The other scenario would be if something unfortunate happened and your entire collection got destroyed, then the collective value would have to be assessed.
