      And then it becomes fun again after you grow out of your cynical phase in your mid twenties

      There's literally no escape. Video games were a mistake.

          I can't play any story games or AAA but I can put tons of hours into autism games and some roguelikes. I have hundreds of hours in each Factorio. Noita, and Dwarf Fortress.

    I started to try to gamify non-game stuff like fitness

    Then I went to college and thats pretty easy to gamify because of grades n stuff

    basically use your mutated dopamine system to your advantage, gamify your world

      This isn't addiction, this is being a gay. Kind of like how Tony Montana in scarface wasn't addicted to cocaine, he was addicted to power.

    i'm reformed but also descensitized. 1,300 hours is literally rookie shit lol. pre steam i had easily 2000 in runescape, pre steam i had skyrim at 1000 on xbox . League of legends, dota, filthy numbers. 4,000 each at least. add another misc 2,000 from various steam games, garys, mod.

    You would think that 20,000 hours total play time is a lot but it's two years. It's really not that much for me being 29 now. 2 years of my life out of 29 were spent sitting playing vidya

    It doesn’t matter. It’s pixels on a screen in an imaginary world. It has no real effect on the world. If you’re not a mega streamer or you tuber by this point then you’re literally just wasting time. Doing anything around the house or to improve yourself are much more valuable uses of your time, and no, being able to quick scope is not a marketable skill

    > beat gaming addiction?
    You can't, it's a trick, they force you to play whether you want to or not. It's not actually your decisions making you play, they just mind-control people into playing to keep them busy. Remember this post when they go public with the mind-control stuff; it's getting harder and harder for them to cover it up with how technology has advanced (people need to DIY this stuff because certain hardware is compromised already)

      Anon they've been openly radically reprogramming citizens for the entirety of all Western civilization. The trick is that you think there's going to be a big reveal but you've already been mind controlled your entire life.

        What nonsense? If you're rich and powerful you want things to go your way, so you influence the world. It's almost physically impossible for that to not happen. When you're being influenced artificially, you're being manipulated. Simple as. What do you think people were rioting for the last several years and decades prior for? For fun? No it's to push back against whatever horseshit control they feel. BLM and antifa and proud boys and Malcolm x and all that gay ass shit, it's all people who feel manipulated unfairly.

    I got a wife and made a son. Can't just sit around all day denying them a future. I always saw myself as a decent but lazy, if not neurotic guy. Couldn't be a decent man if I don't try and support my son's education.

    Plus, a lot of games are shit these days and I've played to death many classics as well. I feel like I've seen most of the medium in general.

    Elden Ring is my most played game, I played it for roughly 500 hours. I have a few games that are 100+ but most are under 100 hours put in. Now if there was a timer for how many hours I've wasted on Ganker, then we would have some real addiction hours

    For WoW private server addiction: my friends went to retail, I got bored of grinding for better gear so I can grind more latter, for better gear.

    For LoL addiction: I noticed I wasn't happy when I won a match and only got frustrated when I lost.

    I haven't had another addiction. I sort of had one for Genshin while trying to get Klee. Other than that I game a bit, browse Ganker, drink tea with family and watch YouTube.
