>>26008751 They stopped working as a tool for escapism ( pic related), so I slept alot and my sleep cycle reversed ( night awake, day asleep) lived like it for 6 months before seeking help. I used to play games 8 + hrs a day. Now It might be 5 hours a week or less
No they enhance my life. When I am invested in a good game I have no bad feels like tfwnogf and I don't think about how I have no friends or get envious of people who are more attractive than me. I am just focussed on the game, so video games make me happy.
>>26009968 That image fucked me up, it's too true. Jobless 28 neet , I just sleep 10+ hours during the day, awake all night on the verge of tears every night.
I'll boot up an old favorite game and only play for 3 hours or less before quitting. I'll try a new game everyone is raving about and lose interest around 3 hours as well. I'll watch some anime or movie and just let it play in the background as I stare at it, not really taking any of it in, it's depressing.
>>26010280 I just replay games i played from my childhood and am in this endless loop of trying to relive days that will never come back
Its not the games that have changed because theyre still fun, its me for doing nothing with my life and then i go on normiebook and see everyone happy with their gf or fiance, on vacations, finishing their high end stem degrees, having all this sex with girls....
>>26008751 Videogames were never the problem, they were/are a product of the actual issues. I believe this is true for most people (if not all). If you actually just got addicted to gaming (with no other large issues like social phobia etc) and ignored everything else, you still obviously have severe addiction issues and yet again - games aren't the actual problem.
yeah. They're my heroin. I couldn't get enough of them as a kid. My parents always hated them so I'd play them at friends houses as much as I could, or go to arcades. Started with basic pc stuff like red alert, aoe. Moved to gamecube, then xbox. Then 360 and now one. I wasted high school playing them. I wasted a good portion of jr high playing them. And I still can't bring myself to be rid of them. I justify it by saying I've spent too much money on it, or that I'd go insane and blown my brains out from boredom if I didn't have them to fill the time. Somewhat true but honestly my life would probably be better without them. They're unavoidable in this day and age though. If I ditched my console I'd still have my PC and phone.
>>26010597 I was a kid playing red alert on the family PC. They didn't update it so it fell far behind the times. The last game it could handle was Battlefield 2, and that crashed all the time. I didn't start buying my own games until the 360 generation.
>>26010741 I hate PC gaming. It's expensive and representative of everything I hate about my own habit. It's isolated, anti-social, nerdy bullshit, that I would play every single day if I had the means. I was in a CoD clan in early high school and I fucking hate myself for that. Console at least has the potential to be a social activity. PC gaming is the fedora of video games. The I just don't give a fuck anymore final solution.
>>26010779 I mean if you're playing single player games sure. I wouldn't go that deep man. You're a fat nerdy piece of shit if you're playing hentai and Japanese games nobody will know. But stuff like CoD is white popular.
I game on both PC and Console but if someone threw a party invite my way I wouldn't turn it down because I know video games will always be there in the same state when I return.
The first feeling I can recall is my mind being paralyzed out of boredom. I didn't have video game consoles or pc in my early childhood and it was hell. When I got my first gaming console NES I was happy beyond words. When I was playing, I was devoid of boredom and it was the best feeling imaginable. My relationship with gaming have been pretty much the same since. I can't really blame it for my failures in life. It brought me a lot of joy and saved me from boredom.
>>26010829 I had the same mentality but video games made me unmotivated to seek things out, too passive. "I'll go if I get invited" well I never fucking got invited. Turns out half the battle is inviting yourself, which I wasn't doing because I was having a blast playing games. This was back when CoD was not a blockbuster hit among normies. United offensive days. Vanilla CoD. It was unknown among regular people.
>>26010863 I see what you mean. Sorry if you didnt try. I always tried to get myself into social events haha don't get me wrong. But I was actually autistic I'm seriously autistic. I can't even read social ques.
>>26008751 No. I made friends and related to people more than I ever would have through any other form of media playing video games. I met some of the most influential people in my life who expanded my interests and broadened my horizons more than anyone in my town at the time could have. I was still social and went places when I could but I realized I never really enjoyed it. The people I hung around were never really my friends save for a close few who also played video games to the extent I did.
When they left I continued to play video games but I'm looking into filling my time with something else as I'm always on the computer or in front of a screen for my job already. I have a few online friends and some hobbies as well as reading to keep my sanity.
Thats not to say I haven't had my issues with addiction or neglect due to them. I've never had a decent girlfriend and missed out on a lot of great experiences and relationships/opportunities due to not being able to leave the screen.
