What do you think your life would be like if video games didn't exist?
>>
id probably be dead
>>
>Immigrant parents from korea
>no vidya gaems

hello MIT
>>
I'd watch more anime than usual
>>
>>323353286
Exactly the same except I'd spend more time online.
>>
I probably would sit in my room doing something else instead
>>
I would be happy
>>
Much more boring, but I think I'd definitely have more of a social life. So idk.
>>
>>323353286
I'd still be wasting my time on the internet, just not on video game related websites.
>>
I'd probably be really into board and card games instead
>>
Pretty bad.
>>
Drugs
>>
>>323353286
A successful one
>>
>>323353286
The same. I went like ten years where I didn't play games hardly at all.
>>
The only reason I even have contact with the outside world at my house is because I have internet, and we only got internet at my house to be able to play Xbox live as a kid.

So I'd be a lonely shut-in, instead I actually am able to talk to my real life friends while I'm at home because I don't have cell service in my house.
>>
I'm probably one of the odd cases where video games helped me succeed. My brother and sister spent their school careers socializing and are now in prison and 19 with 2 kids, respectively. I ignored every person in my life and focused on doing nothing but school and video gaming in my free time. Now I'm in uni and have a decent job and money. I might be a 21 year old emotionally stunted virgin but at least I'll be successful.
>>
>>323353286
I'd watch anime and read books more and be exactly as much of a shut in as I am now. I'd probably be significantly lonelier than I am now, actually. Vidya introduced me to basically every important relationship in my life.
>>
I'd probably transition from Local Basketball to State Basketball considdering i'd probably be alot healthier than i when i played.
>>
I'd find something else to waste my time on instead
>>
no different because I don't play video games
>>
>>323353286
id probably masturbate a lot more and read more books
>>
I would have been more focused on school. I let video games completely overshadow my priorities all the way through college. It ended up causing some setbacks in my life because I never found a direction, though I'm grateful for what I have.
>>
My Asperger brain would probably find something else to obsess over. Probably books.

Dear god my life was set for destruction.
>>
I wouldn't have learned english and be a normie faggot.
>>
>>323353286
i'd probably be drunk
>>
I'd have watched more movies as a teen for sure since my friend was a film buff

But adolescence not sure. Maybe I wouldn't have quit Taekwondo. My English might be a lot worse too.
>>
Idk

I didnt have a lot of kids near me so I'd spend a lot of time by myself

maybe id be into model kits or film i guess

Exactly the same as with video games - Absolute dogshit
>>
>>323353286

It would've gone one of two ways:

>Do well in school, graduate university in 4-6 years, go on to find a good job and probably find a wife somewhere in the middle of that.
or
>Get really bored and join the military. I could've been one of those kids that was 18 when the "war on terror" started. I would either die or come back home to become one of those conspiracy theorist militia types.

Vidya taught me that talent doesn't matter. Tryharding will get you success.

I was untalented as fuck in fightan games, but I tryharded for 3 years straight and now I can play SF4 at a competent level. In the SFV beta, I won 99% of my matches. (I think I lost to 4 people out of the few hundred matches I had)

I earned that through tryharding and nerding for 3 years straight.
>>
>>323353286
probably would have got into to the stuff my parents have done and still do to some extent. Drugs, some gang stuff, and either die of overdose, killed in gang related fight, or end up like my uncle or cousin, in and out of jail with a lady and kids suffering for the lack of a good father. Probably, as my siblings and I early on realized that we can still make our own decisions even with all the bull crap that happens around you.
>>
>>323355804
Talent does matter but talent without hard work and discipline alone won't bring success
>>
I would be a depressed useless piece of shit but with no hobby.

Video games are what keeps me going.
>>
>>323353286
More reading. Probably identical otherwise.
>>
I'd just be wasting my time with something else nonconstructive
>>
invent video games
>>
>>323353403
임마~ 한국어를 하실 수 있습니까?
>>
>>323353286
Switch vidya with more anime more movies and more books.
I do all of them anyway but without vidya each will just get more time.
I'm not social because I hate most people except for a close group of friends not because vidya.
>>
>>323353286
I'd spend more money on shooting.
>>
Productive and meaningful
>>
>>323353286
Slightly more unbearable than it already is
>>
>>323353286
Still unproductive and meaningless.
>>
>>323353286
not sure anon.
on one hand, i'd definitely have more of a social life.
on the other hand, vidya is pretty fun and a form of stress relief for me.

I'd probably watch more anime\ movies\ series and read more books
>>
Uh, regular TV? board games? I dunno.
>>
I'd probably be better at playing guitar. Other than that though I'd probably latch on to some other form of escapism. I also may have killed myself after high school.
>>
I'd probably kill myself. Why live in a world without video games?

>What do you think your life would be like if video games didn't exist?

I would have never been introduced to this horrible board, that's for sure.
>>
>>323353286
Just as shitty, but in a different way.
>>
I wonder if my hands wouldn't have developed a slight tremble at 17. Cause if video games caused that, then thats why I didn't continue rifle hunting. Then, cause i didn't go hunting as much, I kind of gave up on fishing too.

So, yeah, I would probably be out on a frozen lake right now ice fishing

man... I aint thought about going fishing in years. I really miss it... Maybe I'll go again this month actually.
>>
I'd have to do the things I do in GTA in real life instead
>>
would have killed myself desu senpai
>>
I'd be dead. Or really like books. One of the two.

Probably dead.

When I was little the only 2 things I ever did were video games and LARP (as a little kid, before I knew what that was)

So I guess I would be a LARPer right now.

Probably would've killed myself years ago.

this, some of us are just naturally maladjusted and vidya was a saving grace

>>323353286
Board games and card games

>Shooting for fun is illegal

Okay dude.
>>
>>323353286
As much as I enjoy video games, I'd be better off without them.
>>
I don't know man, I just don't know
>>
LEGOS and toys and figurines and comic books and cartoon comedies and Japanese anime, but not books since books are boring and have no fun pictures to look at. Either way, a 150lb, 24 year old manchild still living with his parents who only had girls like him when he was in elementary school.

basically nothing would change
>>
Drawfagging, anime or books. Or insane. 90% of my social interaction is with my cousins online.
>>
It makes me wonder what the hell the social autists did back before television and before Internet, play D&D? Or were there basically none back then since they were all put in nuthouses or something, I don't know my history and I think D&D was made after 1969, much after television. I doubt my schizophrenic uncleS would be allowed to roam the streets whenever he wanted to 60 years ago (brain disorders run in the family, guess who also has one).
>>
>>323353286
Either in the ministry or dead from suicide. My childhood and adolescence were not happy ones at all.
>>
>>323353286
I'd probably just be playing more mtg or other card/tabletop/physical games.
>>

Most people on /v/ don't really play video games.
>>
>>323353286
No different. My life isn't video games. I just play em to kill time.
>>
>>323353286
Better. I initially got interested in videogames after breaking my leg as a child and being stuck in the hospital for months.

It's really warped my entire life into something unhealthy.
>>
>>323353286

I'd be an electrician who loves to surf in his free time.
>>
>>323370683
This. I'd probably also vote for trump.
