So i've liked this girl I know for a while now and i'm tired of being alone and not doing anything about it. What should I do?

Do what ever you feel like doing.
You want to talk to her, talk to her.
You want to date her, take her out on a date.
You want to play video games, stay home and play video games.
WTF are you expecting? A step by step instruction manual on how to live your life?
Except some advice on how to do so would be nice. I don't want to just go "Hey I really like you maybe we could date sometime?" and then awkward silence for 5 minutes and then "no"
You have more control over your life than you think. What do you like about her? Is she pretty or cool or smart. Tell her her I think you're <attribute> wanna get lunch sometime? If she says no it's whatever. But she might say yes then ask for her number or whatever then leave
Maybe compliment her about something that doesn't have to do with her appearance.
Use that as an ice breaker, then find common ground. Maybe after a few nice conversations find something you have in common, and ask her if she'd like to meet up with you at ____?
If she says no, lick your wounds and learn from it.
