Pressing buttons and mashing the X button isn't a valuable skill

Playing keyboard is just like pushing some buttons, guess it doesn't take any skill either...

Playing video games isn't just about hitting buttons; it's about decision making and timing.
It's "I couldn't care less" NOT "I could care less"!! Why do 90% of English speakers get this wrong?

Video games are a form of entertainment.
Like movies.
Watching a movie takes no skill either, but it's still highly enjoyable.

It perfectly makes no sense.

My wife can watch a movie. She can't play CoD or Mario or Guitar Hero. Why would that be? You just don't WATCH a videogame, you play it.

On topic, with this definition so kindly provided by Internet: A skill is the learned capacity to carry out pre-determined results often with the minimum outlay of time, energy, or both.

Any skill? D.
Valuable skill? D. What about professional gamers?

To be fair most games these days are designed so anyone can spam buttons and meet the objective. No point mentioning a couple of hard games, these days they're the minority.

Well it's a pointless skill that we gamers have, enjoyable but pointless. Unless you can get sponsored to play and make a living of it -_-

Thats because you dont play games worth mentioning. And its the strategy behind it not the buttons.
