HOW VIGOROUSLY would YOU DEFEND YOUR VIDEO GAMES FROM A WOULD-BE BURGLAR?

I'm pretty protective of my things, video games or not. I'd even fight dirty like a woman if I'd have too.

I don't believe there is a "dirty" when your life and home are at risk. I also don't believe in warning shots. 8)

Oh, quite vigorously. Afterward, while we bask in the afterglow of our passion, we'll share a cigarette.

The question ignores the fact that someone broke into your house and assumes you are that worried about your games. This premise sucks.

Any who dare try to take my games will perish at any cost. Nothing in life is more important than video games to me.

I'd hid in the closet and wait for the thief to pass. Soon as he passes, i'd attack him from behind and smother him unconscious.

Good, because most law enforcement doesn't either.

Their view is that if the situation allowed for warning shots then it wasn't dire enough to warrant violence.

If people spend over 12 hundred for a desktop, I'd imagine they'd fight tooth and nail. I sure as hell would.

I'd rather lose the computer and everything with it than lose my life to a burglar.

I imagine odds are I'd be both underpowered and underprepared for such a scenario.

Hopefully, the burglar doesn't go for my savings jar.

Thankfully, getting burgled won't happen at my current house. I'm upstairs, behind a thick door, with a ton of neighbours around.

This has been another (probably) uselessly informative post, by me. Booyah!

How exactly is one supposed to respond to this if they've dealt with home intrusion before? I doubt the results would be appropriate conversation, so I'll leave it at video games being the last damn thing on my mind.
