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

  • 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.

    Been gaming for 14 years... From the age of 12 to the age of 16 I've been spending DAILY at least 7 to 14 hours gaming... I have over 12.000 hours in one game. I don't want to imagine what I could of simply achieved if I spent this whole time in another domain. I'm an idiot... Or at least used to be one

    I suffer from minor depression and I only have the will to play video games or eat. Everything else seems boring to me. Lately I don't even want to play video games.

    I just deleted the game I was most addicted to about a month ago. It's been a tough journey, but I am proud that I made it through a month. I hope that I can continue this for the rest of this year. Fingers crossed...

    Playing over 110 days of TF2 what skills do you come out with?
    What practical experience do you leave with after you've had enough?

    You spend so much time improving in-game yet when you leave you come out with nothing that battered you as a person.

    You havent learnt a new language.
    You haven't learnt new social skills.
    You haven't learnt how to become a better person.

    Then you wonder why you're all so miserable. Turn off the screen and go outside.
