Sports or anime...are we all really that different?

Posted 24 January 2010 - 05:46 PM

I'm just writing this to see where most people stand...What I am really wondering is why is it that there are so few programmers and Electronically inclined people that prefer such things as anime and Final Fantasy to your local jock that glues his mind to the idiot box every Sunday for the "big game". I'd really just like to get some input for my own perspective. I mean I'll be honest I've never been big into sports, but I've never been good at any of them either. When it comes to anime and Final Fantasy, just hearing these words kinda gets me excited...I mean come on be honest some of those Final Fantasy Females were pretty hot.

Just for the record I am also a big fan of Vampire Hunter D.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Hm, why are you passing 'today' by reference? :P

I'm not sure this is a 'Student Campus' topic. I guess it can go in the Lounge, unless another mod finds a better spot for it. :)

I'm actually not all that into either. If I had to choose one to watch on the TV, I'd probably just go with anime. Although, I would be just as interested if there was a basketball game.

so you think people can't enjoy both? or that all people who enjoy sports are 'the local jokes'? seems like the only divide that exists is one you've created in your head because you fall into one of your imagined categories of people.

I love playing baseball and watching anime but final fanatasy not so much. I haven't played sports in a while but that doesn't change the fact that I love to play I just can't see the point in watching a full game on tv...in person yea but on tv nah...maybe just the highlights.

Anyways when you assume you make an ass of u and me...even if im already one

Personally, I am much more into sports. I think playing games is a waste of time, though I sometimes go to my friends house and play some game on the XBox mostly because of the great graphics and animation in some of them, but never play a full campaign or something that takes more than 30mins.

I much more prefer playing football (the real one, the one that's got Ronaldinho, not the American where they use the foot 0.1% of the time), basketball and maybe handball.

Personally I prefer watching a game though.
