Gamers think about sex way too much

Gamers think about sex way too much

Human Brain Cloud, an online word association game, reveals the most thought words are 'sex', 'me' and 'money'.

My mum used to say that when a man isn't thinking about sex then he's busy avoiding doing the cleaning, and Kyle Gabler, founder of indie development studio 2D Boy, has finally managed to prove her right. Which is very nice of him, if you ask me.

Founder of the Experimental Gameplay Project, which encourages to create small and stylish indie games and give them away for free (staff favourites include Attack of the Killer Swarm and the horrendously addictive Tower of Goo Unlimited), Kyle has been working hard on an experimental game called Human Brain Cloud.

The game basically involves a massive word association experiment, the results of which are gathered together into viewable clouds. The game has reportedly gathered over 800,000 associations, connecting over 100,000 unique phrases.

Kyle has recently revealed his most recent statistics from the data-gathering game and, you guessed it, 'sex' is the most submitted word in the entire game.

Arriving in second place was 'me', shortly followed by 'money' - thus proving that all gamers are just horny, greedy, egotists who probably scour the internet for ways to make quick cash all day (with one hand).

Human Brain Cloud, along with all the other games hosted, is free to play, so why not check it out?

What do you think about most? Does this game count as art? Discuss in the forums, if you're not...uhh, busy.

FYI: The game's website has exceeded its CPU quota; "Please contact this site's webmaster."

There isn't really any way to think of sex too much, the only unnatural thing for a human to do is not think about it at all.

and that is why gamers have the best life ever

sex

This kind of schedule make for a big day

Of course we all know the theory: If you're very good at games, you mostly spend your time ... alone... which would explain all that 'sex'

Heh, the game keeps overrunning it's CPU time allocation. Methinks Brain Cloud needs a new host.

I disagree.

I think about my loneliness and depression about failed attempts at finding mates more than I think about the actual act of intercourse.

Depends on the time of day though.

Well that's a cheery post. Self-fullfilling sorta one too I suspect ;)

Do I think about sex more than anything else? Hell no. It's simply a nice part of life, that gets a small ammount of thought on a regular basis because hot ladies exist.

How can we be thinking of sex? I thought all computer gamers were suppose to be overly aggressive with tendancies towards violence.;)

Drag them close to the existing frame, you should see a shadow of a construction shape appear, if you release the mouse then they will form that piece.

that is stupid, in a very wrong way.

I think a better analysis of gamers thinking of sex too much would be to run a battery of forearm strength and grip tests.

lol the site is slashdotted!

This Account Has Exceeded Its CPU Quota :

If you are the webmaster, your account may have gotten this error for one or more of the following reasons:
Your account has used more than its share of the cpu in the past 60 second sliding window.
Your account has too many concurrent processes running simultanously.
Your account has consumed too much memory.
Your site was recently very busy trying to run inefficient scripts.
The solution would be to optimize your applications to use less CPU.
Adding appropriate indeces to your SQL tables can often help reduce CPU.
Using static .html documents instead of painful .php scripts will practically eliminate CPU usage.

Not that strange. A couple of years ago I read an article on a group of people who called themselves Asexuals. I.E. - they had no sexual preference, they happily lived without sex. You might think this was only ugly fat people, but the article covered a ostensibly normal young good looking person who could obviously easily have found partners. While wikipedia says there is still debate on whether it's a sexual dysfunction or a sexual orientation, I believe the groups themselves strongly feel that asexuality is simply another choice in our modern world.
CardJoe 24th July 2007, 20:33 Quote
Yeah, but its a weird choice ;)

Who says it's a choice?

I suspect it's obvious, but I miss your point.

Just goes to show we humans are a strange lot, the whole purpose of an animals existence is to survive and be strong so they can spawn more of themselves. Choosing not to have sex at all is a very unnatural thing to do, but then again, so is having sex with the intention of not making babies.

I started the test, and all I could think about was sex because I knew that was what it was about! Not good, should be secret.

yeah i was thinking, sites like this linking to it are really going to be clouding your mind beacause they are implanting the thought before you do the test (if you understand what im trying to say there ...)
