People today treat games as a WAY OF LIFE. It isnt.
I play video games occasionally, and I smoke weed occasionally too. The key is to use those things as leisure time, and not have the leisure time envelop everything so you dont have time to do important things.
If you cant pull your head out of your ass and realize that video games (like many things) are meant to be used in moderation, and you need to get OFF the couch to change things, then you deserve whatever life shits onto you.
