How to Waste Your Life | A Short Film on Video-Game Addiction

  • Published on:  Saturday, January 12, 2019
  • There are many things I'd love to do with my life. Music, programming, and art are the big three creative outlets I'd love to pursue. But I'm 22 years old and I still suck at all of them. Why? I think I know why, and I aim to answer it in this video.

    I know at some point there's gonna be somebody saying something along the lines of "how dare you tell me how live my life, get off your high horse and stop telling me to stop wasting my life". Most likely they won't put it as eloquently as that but I should say: this is mostly an analysis of my own life. If it inspires you to do something more with your life that's great! But otherwise if you feel insulted by what I said, I recommend not worrying about what some random guy on the internet thinks.

    Hey I got 12k+ hours in dota 2 and I feel completely lost always. I really don't know how to reflect my feelings and need someone to talk it through. Its like when used to play these games I had a purpose but now i have none. Its been 2 months since i deleted it but I am still depressed. If someone has some suggestions pls do tell.

    I am a wumin and my gaming shame is spending 150+ hours playing Fallout New Vegas when it came out. Platinumed the game + completed all DLC + trophies. I got absolutely nothing out of that expect a deep appreciation for wartime jazz and swing music.

    " Don't do too many drugs " So um, you're saying, do drugs but in moderation just like gaming? XD
    Anyways, yes. At the end when it comes to gaming, it's really about moderation, all work can have a detrimental effect on our mental health and it's always healthy for the brain to unwind and relax. Joy is what we seek as reward and gaming is the very readily available dose. It should be best to reward yourself with gaming after doing some extent of work, now that's properly balanced, in my opinion.

    there is no such thing as wasting time. you do what u want. and think about the stuff you can't do probably because of financial reasons or cuz u literally live nowhere. just remember to exercise, socialize if you can, and get an education through school or reading. oh and job/work. then after all of that and you have time play video games. then sleep. repeat. vacation. repeat. etc.

    I feel like 12 years of school education was a waste of time... Now in university if i study a subject and i realize 2 years later that i don't care for that subject anymore. So the time you've studied was actually wasted time... Until which point is it not a waste of time? Only if you earn money or what? So in this case everything that makes you happy is well spent time... Making people happy you love is well spent time..

    Money is the only reason why we even think about well spent and wasted time... Fuck money

    I've dealt with this, it sucks. If you spent your life playing video games then life will pass you by and there is nothing you can do about it. Did anyone hit a point where they blamed their families and friends for not trying harder to stop them from gaming?

    That problem only occurs with multiplayer games. Try single player.
