Do you ever look at all the hours you've poured into your games and think "what if I used that time doing something useful?"
Sometimes I think about it but I'm successful in my career, I'm well educated, I have a significant other, and a booming social life; so why should I care that I spend my free time doing something I enjoy.
I could do something more "productive" but I prefer enjoying myself.
No you faggot, because I enjoyed myself. What good is living if you're not enjoying yourself and instead chasing some arbitrary idea of "doing something useful?" Useful for whom? You? Or for me?
>you dont have any stories to entertain anyone with because you spend all your time by yourself on the computer
>14 browser tabs, 3 image folders and 2 movies on pause open
I'm just so overwhelmed with all the available porn, it always comes to this
me too, and sometimes I make an event out of masturbation
when I finally cum on my own face and realize what I have done to my asshole, I think about how I missed out on playing vidya
>that kid who
wave dashedto school
i seriously hope you guys dont do this
>All that time spent in mmos
I wish i could get it all back sometimes.
I've had girls in my highschool tell me they love the way I tell stories, and all I really do is exaggerate the fuck out of my videogame clutches/good matches I've had.
Get fucking good.
Playing video games is a lot more useful than posting on /v/ and if I could see that time I'd probably kill myself.
Only thing I do otherwise is watch anime and work at a 30 hour a week job
Shit my backlog is still enormous and I've been going at it a fucking year now. At least I'm progressing, I beat Fez, the Outlast DLC, Metal Slug X, Shantae, Crazy taxi (dropped due to shitty controls on a shit port), and some other game I can't remember this weekend.
Time now for hydrophobia, Sam and Max, and whatever the fuck else I feel like
Do you ever look at how much time you've spent on partying and think "what if I used that time doing something useful?"
Do you ever look at how much time you've spent watching sports and think "what if I used that time doing something useful?"
Do you ever look at how much time you've spent watching TV/Movies and think "what if I used that time doing something useful?"
Do you ever look at how much time you've spent trying to get your dick wet and think "what if I used that time doing something useful?"
Do you ever think about how much time you spent at church and think "what if I used that time doing something useful?"
Can do this for fucking ever.
Also any realistic guess on if Fatal Frame 5 will be released stateside?
I read an article written by a man who did EOD work (explosive ordnance disposal) in Afghanistan during the late 1990s. After 9/11 happened, he felt that he wasted his time cleaning up all of the explosives the Soviets left behind when the United States started bombing the country all over again. He'd worked with locals to dismantle all sorts of landmines and undetonated bombs. He'd seen several of his coworkers and friends get blown apart in the process.
Ultimately, he thought that he just wasted his time and that he didn't do any lasting good.
>browse tag i enjoy
>find a pic i like
>open artist's page in new tab
>repeat process for multiple hours
someone save me from this
No, but I do look over a lot the time I spent getting a degree, then establishing a business and think "Man, I did all this work to procure enough wealth that I would never have to work again so I could freely play video games" Then I lament on the irony of having spent all the time I put into one day playing vidya uninterrupted by working and not playing vidya.
>realise how much I fap
>start doing some math
>realise iv done around 5000 hours of fapping
They say 10,000 hours is what is needed to master something
I guess ill find out soon enough
Yeah. Especially thinking about how many times I replayed pokémon and Disgaea games.
However, what hurts more is thinking of how healthier and a better person I would be if I didn't waste so much time lurking in the internet looking at porn, game forums and arguing/getting angry at random shit that don't and won't make any difference in my life.
I think I've consumed just about every english translated story on Sadpanda with the impregnation tag at this point.
I basically check it daily for new stuff to fap to but I usually just end up reading it waiting for it to "get gud" enough for me to think "I can't waste this one" and pull out my dick and start fapping.
>tfw keep on procrastinating on learning SQL and C+
>keep playing vidya instead
I just want to live a decent life.
There isnt a single human being on this planet who doesnt do something others would consider a waste of time
Whether or not you think something is useful or not is purely up to you, and if at the very least fapping and gaming keeps you sane between the hours you work
lolworkthen who cares
One of my fetishes is something I discovered last year while reading a greentext.
The concept was never elaborated on outside of that thread, but it lives on in my heart.
It's also kinda embarrassing so I can't tell anyone about it when not anonymous. Also global rule #15
If I'm receiving enjoyment from video games, that is useful to me.
You know that feeling you get when you're serving on a fireteam, watch the FNG get his legs blown off, and wonder if any of this fighting fucking matters in the end?
How do you think that guy would feel once he gets back to the United States with a head full of shellshock and winds up being an alcoholic shitstain? I'd bet he wished he still had his legs. Didn't fall for some nationalist or patriotic lie. Pursued a passion he genuinely wanted, no matter how difficult it is. Wanted to live a life where he improves the welfare of others in a way that he can control, without being told what to do.
Caring, loving, motherly intercourse for the sole purpose of relieving sexual tension. With butterfly-butt. >Imagining her brushing aside your hair while laying on top of you, whispering "Shh, let mama take care of you."
that argument is shit
You have to weigh pros and cons of everything you do
Obviously meth has its cons
I am a former heroin user so I know how it is to waste your life and money.
People here who collect vidya and figures are small time wastes on society
>at parent's place for the weekend
>bored out of my mind having to make conversation
>can still mindlessly browse the internet because they don't know/care about technology
>can finally browse /v/ without regret or remorse because I literally can do nothing else right now
Feels pretty good.
Every time I read threads like this, or "why am I unpopular??" bullshit blogs on this shitty board, it's filled with whiny emo bullshit that would all be solved if you'd learn how to fucking tell a story. Learn how to fucking talk to people.
I'm the biggest god damn weeaboo in town and I have plenty of friends, why? Because I know how to socialize.
People don't dislike you for your creepy hobbies, people dislike you because you DON'T KNOW HOW TO PORTRAY YOURSELF AS COOL. FUCK. People will love anyone no matter what they enjoy if they're legitimately funny or enjoyable to be around.
>have joystick out
>can't just finish game because have to find "that pic"
>have to finish new game+ afterward
>I could probably learned to play an instrument at a professional level.
You think 18 days worth of practice will put you anywhere near a professional musician? Holy fuck, you're delusional. They've been practicing their entire lives and you think you can accomplish that in 18 days?
>Friend you haven't seen in awhile comes to see you.
>"So what have you been up to?"
Umm umm... I played a video games... then another one. Then suddenly I was 25 years old!
Yes, then I realize that I'm a broken worthless person who wouldn't amount to anything anyway and I go back to escaping into my video games.
I won't give the name away exactly, but ill tell you a little about it.
It's a restaurant that's open only two days a week, busy on mothers day, and it's seems to be a brunch/lunch place. It's in east manhattan.
Keep it up, someday soon you'll become a
541 hours. Provided you do 5 hours of practice every day, that's 108 days. With a good instructor and a desire to learn, you could become reasonably competent in that amount of time.
what boring fucking games do you play?
it's supposed to be
>tfw no one will listen to my videogame stories because they have to do with videogames
Yes, I think of the countless hours wasted earlier in life and wonder why. Today though I don't look at my time spent playing games as waste because I'm actually really busy doing a whole list of things that are bettering my life. The hour or so I get every day to play vidya is great as it's just a hobby, not a timesink when I don't have anything else going for me.
Like anything else, video games can be a waste of life when you're stagnant.
Its actually 1000 hours of purposely practicing the things you are not good at
Once you are good, you move on and no longer count what is now known as review instead of practice.
I am balding and just let it happen
Everyone is going to get old I figure.
>Instructor demands everyone introduce themselves to each other for some reason
>Asks what people did between the semesters
>Over the break I went sky diving
>Oh yeah, I went with my family to some foreign country
>The only thing I did in those weeks was sit in a dark room sleeping twelve hours at a time and wasting time on pointless things
Why do these people insist that we get all chummy with people that we will never see again afterwards anyway?
are you me?
no seriously, whats going on here
Being a newfag my hours would be somewhere in the 10K - 13K range. Not too bad. I mean if I spent all that time learning a skill I could actually be doing something with my life but eh. Some here are worse off than I am.
Jesus Christ what the fuck is wrong with me, I don't even like it here and I have spent a year of my short life here.
>think of all the things i could do
>i could try archery
>learn an instrument
>Is guitar too stereotypical?
>all i do is come on 4chan, masturbate and shitpost
>dream of having a life, a career, a family of my own
>wake up and do it all again
It's 7 inches. I spent my childhood being homeschooled by my obsessive and religious father, who had back injuries from several accidents and lived off of Social Security. My mother was also a drug addict and an alcoholic. They divorced before I was born and I had always been in my father's custody. I have no memories to speak of. I don't say anything about this stuff offline and try to do the best I can with the cards life has dealt me (What else can you do?) but I want to either die or simply not get out of bed every morning and I feel like getting sick half of the time. It could always be worse, and some of it was my fault I guess. Oh well, just wasn't too lucky this time around.
How much time do you spend playing videogames that you can't do other useful things? I play vidya 20-30 hours a week despite having to deal with college stuff most of the time, still manage to hit the gym 4 times a week too.
Does this mean that i might be normal
No, I mean if you total up all the hours it has been an entire year (and a half give or take) of my waking life spent on this website. I have been here for 3 to three and a half regular years more or less.
My browser started fucking up after a while and didn't count a lot of visits, so this year and a half old install is probably really underestimating my use.
I hate people. I find most forms of self betterment involve benefit other people more than myself so I choose to become a leeching parasite on society. My contempt for people strangles any desire for self improvement.
I felt I have deprived myself of the life I could be living for years now
one day I will appreciate all the things I've missed
Its just the circumstances like having a family and still trying to finish my education, that keep me from doing all the things i think of.
I don't want to take my aging family for granted and distance myself yet
and yet I play vidya all the time to avoid them ;_;
used to. i barely play games anymore. I treat it recreational activity.
>Quit MMO and never touch the game again
>get a console and time my playtime
>quit playing after an hour or so
Console help because you will rarely do anything else besides playing games. Playing games on pc will usually distract you in long run. Though the sad thing is you will not get the attachment you used to have with games anymore. You just treat it as something you do for fun not something you obsess anymore.
Checking 4chan because news delivery is very fast in here and the opinions are usually funny to read.
I've heard for someone who speaks only english, it takes around 3000 hours to learn japanese
I don't think its worth it just to enjoy some anime and vidya that was never translated.
I've thought a lot about this, so instead I've taken another approach. I'll prefer jobs with lesser time demands rather than better pay or influence or whatever.
2 years since I started, results have been mixed as I'm often too still tired 50% of the days to enjoy much of my leisure time and I have to settle for the cheapest stuff. But at least I can enjoy myself on a somewhat consistent basis.
Death will come for us one day anon, perhaps then we can break the cycle.
>shit retail job I have just to pay bills and kill time
>still living with parents
>all other friends are online and have their own lives or moved away because my town is shit
No reason to do anything else if I literally have nothing better to do than study for school.
Maybe moving in with my gf will give me some company and get me away from this shithole.
> spend 40+ hours a week on vidya
> suddenly reconnect with an old friend from high school
> she admits she had a crush on me back when
> start dating her now
> vidya time drastically drops to 5-10 hours a week if I'm lucky
I guess I am happy now... I dont know
I had tired-gamer syndrome for a long time before this. But this lack of gaming is really making me miss a few things. Cant even play a proper game of civ anymore, I am stuck with plopping down on tf2 or something else quick and disposable for an hour (fuck saving the game and trying to remember wtf was going on when you load it a week later)
I should have just stuck with my wizard training.
You're both going to want to have your own "me time" after a while. When that time comes, it's good to be open and comfortable about setting up boundaries.
Relationships shouldn't feel like a drain.
> As soon as it's hard, it's not right.
Karl Pilkington said that.
I have a weird pre-fap and a main-fap thin I do.
I spend probably 30 minutes or so fapping to shit that's hot, maybe watch a few vids on
xhamsterand browse R34 a bit.
Then I'll find something or remember a pic/vid/hentai game that I'll start fapping too, and that'll be what I fap too for the next 30 minutes before I finish.
It's a weird thing but hey I ain't complaining
dude I can sort of relate to that sudden reconnection
I was alone for so long and finally someone decided to come back into my life.
It was very weird because it made me rethink everything I was doing and I felt uncomfortable because I was doing things other people could not identify with.
Today, long after that relationship is over I can say I wish I focused more on myself instead of trying to date this girl because I am alone again.
>All those hours wasted downloading a game you didn't like or playing a game you hated
Pretty much. Sometimes I wonder if having a clone as a Significant Other would be all I need in the world, until I realized I'd probably hate him too
Sometimes I wonder if I'm a pioneer, engineer, visionary wanting to create jobs for people with amazing ideas like a hospital with a gymasium and restaurant like place as a 3 in 1. Hospital food is terrible, why not have the best cooks to give patients energy feeling recharged.
Also new energy resources. I actually thought of a way, even anti gravity cars. Trains need to take us places too? I'm sick of airplanes.
>You're both going to want to have your own "me time" after a while
Not that anon, but how much time is "a while"?
I had a gf two years ago and she wanted to do stuff with me all the time, and I mean ALL of it. And she got pretty antsy when I suggested to have some time for other things after months of quasi-religious devotion, to the point I had to break with her to be able to have a life instead of a gf.
I thought it was just her being clingy, but now my even more permavirgin brother somehow got a girlfriend and he's going through the same shit.
I hate air travel too because it scares me, but dude stop dreaming and get active
I am not too different because I feel strongly about my ideals and helping people in the way I think they should be helped.
Truth is though you can't do anything yourself so just get involved in the world in anyway you can, you will realize its better to think smaller and save those ideas until you are in a position to come up with them.
I remember it once took 6 hours until I found something good.
But then again, that was before I had a sadpanda account and I was stuck browsing
That was a bad time
I don't go to college to socialize, I go to assuage the (correct) fears of my parents that I am a complete failure who will be homeless or living off NEET bucks in a few years. I hate being social, and socializing in person. Hell being anon is the only time I have ever been able to actually talk freely like this. Why can't they just understand that some people don't fucking like or care about that kind of stuff?
Just force yourself through the motions
You don't have to be sociable if you are trying to study.
All people truly will ask of you is to be decent and somewhat compassionate and being so is more important than the impression you leave on people.
>changing neat folders for a clusterfuck zip
You're a terrible human bean.
>all the time ive played games
>all the time ive looked up porn
>Porn is most likely more
So what, niggas. There is nothing wrong with this. At the end of the fap, it was worth it. Every time I just fap in like 10-20 minutes I feel I wasted my potential.
Many times I've thought "Maybe I spend too much time preparing for the perfect fap". But what else would I have done with that time?
Well, I don't act like an asshole or ignore people or anything when I go places, but at every turn it's like these people are trying to force you into it and making it mandatory and part of the grade or your performance. I just don't get it.
that is the REAL question
>all that time
>still utter shit
no because I'm not a normalfag and I actually enjoy the time I put into play games.
I also know that virtually everyone wastes time doing pointless shit, because when push comes to shove
existence is pointless beyond what you make of it.
Because improving takes active effort, not just fucking around.
I often picture the average /v/irgin as spacing out for hours during the rare instance of them actually playing videogames.
The only answer I can think of is that I was born wrong. Born with poor reflexes, born with a brain that's slow, born too stupid to play smart.
Guess I can't even escape my mediocrity in video games either.
I don't know why I am alive either.
No, it should be natural to be a decent person, but you don't have to entertain anyone is what I mean.
I'm not sure what you mean.
If you can work and go to school its the most productive, but do what you can.
Already having a degree will be a huge help in getting jobs, so it can't hurt.
The best thing to do to get employed will be apply as much as you can.
We're all born dumb and slow (except some crazy fuckers like John Carmack), it's up to us to exceed our humble beginnings and reach our potential, man. If a gorilla can learn sign language you can learn a skill.
Don't be a defeatist.
Well I guess it isn't exactly socializing, but interacting with others, having to coordinate with them, act together as a group. I just can't do that well. The instructors seem to expect that you are able to make friends and do good things in a group, and I just can't stand doing things in situations like that. guess that isn't really socializing. Sorry, I'm just an idiot, ignore me.
I just play monster girl quest until a loli fight or something that isn't completely bizzare comes on
I never realised how much I like lolis until now
I never expected this game to have a decent story either
it's the reason I quit tf2 and started doing kung fu.
I lost 100 pounds in a year, and beat up a drunk a foot and a half taller than me.
also that picture is from a few months before I quit completely.
I may be a manlet but I can punch all the water in your body at the same time.
I am not sure what to tell you
I think you might be lacking confidence making you too shy to work on projects.
I've had to group projects a ton of times in school and I can't see how hard it is unless you purposely avoided the situation.
Basically force yourself to do these things, it wont be so uncomfortable as you imagined because not much can really go wrong.
>got a new pc 6 months ago
>have about 5000 visits here
>have about 1200 visits for rule34
ive been here since 2008 though so i guess i could approximate ive visited here around 55000 times. not sure about '34 though.
i wonder how many hours for both of them
I can see it anon, I can see other people's thoughts moving faster than my own, I can see that without half my effort they advance far past me, I can see that they are better than me with less work. If I can't even make progress in basic things like video games, how am I supposed to do it in life. I am not being a defeatist anon, I am being a realist.
>I can punch all the water in your body at the same time
lol who the fuck says this
sounds like something you'd see in one of those cringe-worthy anime parodies
I dont think so.
*teleports behind you*
*punches all the water in your body at the same time*
heh... hit the showers kid
Fuck off, the reason they think more efficiently, is because they have practiced thinking. Stop being meta, focus on the things that matter. If you can't do this yourself, you are just having a pity party.
I stopped doing martial arts
I used to spar with friends though I don't have anyone to spar with now.
I still shadowbox because it is good cardio excercise and helps you stay in control of your body
Who cares if people are better than you, there will always something better, but it's much more likely that it could be worse. You could be some muslim shit in the middle east getting executed right about now.
Just pick something you enjoy doing, or can even tolerate doing, get good at it, make a living. Be kind to others and happiness and fulfillment will follow.
I only have time to waste and if i can give advice its good
one more word of advice
see what work has to be done and figure out how you can help
then discuss with the group what you can do. For me, groups would often divide up the work and you can work alone.
Whatever nerds I'm gonna be doing backflips when I'm 90 and you're gonna be pissing into a plastic bag tied to your waist.
But you won't live to 90, you'll die of a heart attack.
>Do you ever look at all the hours you've poured into /v/ and think "what if I used that time playing vidya?"
>is because they have practiced thinking
I don't think such a thing is possible anon, besides I spend all my time thinking about how to word my thoughts, and I still can't keep a coherent stream of them coming out of my mouth.
>Focus on the things that matter
You are right anon, it's just hard to be objective.
I don't really enjoy anything, I mean maybe playing video games or something, but you can't really make a living off of those. Guess I will just have to settle for something that doesn't entirely make me want to kill myself and wait to die I guess. Thanks anyway anon.
>I may be a manlet but I can punch all the water in your body at the same time
>mfw people ask me this
>mfw I just tell them stories I have from modded STALKER
Games with unscripted events make for some interesting events.
Like there was this one time a dog glitched onto the bottom of a chimera as it leaped, so it looked as if the dog and the chimera had grappled onto each other in some sort of shonen anime to take down a nearby stalker. He never even stood a chance.
You do realize IQ can be raised, right? Besides even if your logical thinking skills aren't the best thats far from being a dead end. Try new things, >>266541649 is genuinely good advice, albeit simplistic.
Try thinking of talent as a combination of both upper limit of skill and growth rate, then come to realize that at the end of the day most people aren't that special and theres only far and few genuinely talented folks out there in any given skill.
you know what it has done? made it impossible for me to talk to normalfags about video games
their capacity to enjoy utter shit and buy season passes day one willy nilly baffles me
doing something that i enjoy doing is something i can consider productive
I have long since learned to harness my impotence as an engine driving towards the heavens.
>You do realize IQ can be raised
As far as I am aware, it really can't. You can get better at the specific tests they give you to gauge it, but not actually increase it. That's not to say you can't have a good day and test better, or a bad day and test worse, but the base is basically fixed.
You may be right, but I am afraid I cannot believe that the entire population is equal except for a handful of outliers. There will always be stratification and I can't believe that I have the same capacity as everyone else. I'm sorry anon, I really do wish I could believe as you do that I could be as good as these others, but I cannot.
It just takes 10,000 hours to become a master.I put over 1/10 of that into Dota 2. Imagine just being that close to being truly great. It'd make me at least sort of good at something.
>tfw spent two years travelling across America, got a job working for a MUD, became god of the sky and had a paid trip to Vegas where you played a friendly hand of poker with a guy who was in the grand finals of jepoardy, and you STILL can't tell a fucking decent story to save your life.
I'm not that guy, and I've done some fun shit, but I honestly have to say I'm not even remotely improved as a person, or any good at passing on any wisdom that I clearly didn't pick up.
>Because being sociable, even if you think you're boring is better than being the awkward loner that no one knows nothing about.
If the end result is the same then it doesn't matter what you do.
Personally i'd rather keep to myself(and enjoy my time) rather than intentionally put myself in uncomfortable situations.
It's hilarious to me how defensive you manchildren get when someone like OP points out how banal and shit-tier vidya are as a hobby. It bothers you because it's true.
>Do you ever look at how much time you've spent on partying and think "what if I used that time doing something useful?"
Except when "partying" you gain new experiences, make friends, grow as a person, and when you reach a certain age you realize the banality of it and start wanting to settle down.
>Do you ever look at how much time you've spent watching sports and think "what if I used that time doing something useful?"
Spectating sports is as retarded as playing video games. The only difference being that sports promote physical activity which is good for your health, and athletes can be seen (or were seen) as role models when they weren't absolute fuck ups.
>Do you ever look at how much time you've spent watching TV/Movies and think "what if I used that time doing something useful?"
Both those are art, anon.
>Do you ever look at how much time you've spent trying to get your dick wet and think "what if I used that time doing something useful?"
Procreation is what you're biologically put on this earth to do, it can't be time wasted.
>Do you ever think about how much time you spent at church and think "what if I used that time doing something useful?"
Church instills socially healthy values and morality. inb4fedoratipping
>Can do this for fucking ever.
"I can keep being a retard forever"
>Do you ever look at all the hours you've poured into your games and think "what if I used that time doing something useful?"
Right now I'm supposed to do a big ass analysis essay that's due on tuesday, but as you can see I'm replying to a thread on /v/ while playing Smash Bros.
>Except when "partying" you gain new experiences, make friends, grow as a person, and when you reach a certain age you realize the banality of it and start wanting to settle down.
you can do the same in any multiplayer video game
Yeah, but he gives me the impression that he never actually tried excelling in a academical environment.
There is stratification, but its likely you don't actually understand what i mean by that, certain groups of people that are good at certain skill or share particular traits gather, take for example my classroom, i study chemical engineering and i can tell you all of my classmates are over average in academical success, but aside from that their other skills vary a lot.
And yes you can get better at rational thinking, then again its only one (if a very important one) of the many factors that affect our daily lives. Anyone with a mentality such as yours won't be able to accomplish anything no matter how skilled they are.
>>Do you ever look at how much time you've spent watching TV/Movies and think "what if I used that time doing something useful?"
>Both those are art, anon.
Stopped reading there.
>It's hilarious to me how defensive you manchildren get when someone like OP points out how banal and shit-tier vidya are as a hobby. It bothers you because it's true.
It's not being defensive, it's being annoyed at retarded double standards and pointing them out. No one's denying that video games are a complete and utter waste of time, it's just that 99.9% of shit people do in their freetime is as well.
>Except when "partying" you gain new experiences, make friends, grow as a person, and when you reach a certain age you realize the banality of it and start wanting to settle down.
Same thing could be said about video games. Plenty of people make friends and thus end up going to meetups and such, having experiences etc. all through video gaming.
>Both those are art, anon.
The same could be said about video games, and even if you refuse to acknowledge video games as an artform, why does something being art magically make the time you spend consuming it worth something? Tv and Movies are exactly like video games in the sense that you are accomplishing nothing through them and wasting time you'll never get back.
>Procreation is what you're biologically put on this earth to do, it can't be time wasted.
Are you seriously suggesting that people looking to get their dick wet have child bearing in mind?
>Church instills socially healthy values and morality.
From a Christian point of view it does. For everyone else it doesn't.
>I can keep being a retard forever
Well, at least I agree with you on one thing.
>The end result is we all fucking die so why bother doing anything?
See now you're getting it.
The only real goal in life to have a little bit of fun, and for some of us we're so far down the social competency ladder that we'll never be able to improve enough to have any fun at it. So what do we do? we find other ways to entertain ourselves.
>t I like to get it over with,
why bother doing it at all if you aren't going to savor the experience?
Going on one of those no-fap months was one of the best things ever in terms of clarifying my sexual impulses. It's so much more enjoyable now that it's not just some habit.
dude I stopped fapping for months too, but when I'd get back to it, its the same routine

These days i spend more times watching the same youtube videos over and over again than playing games. I've gotten to the point where i can't play a game unless i have a youtube video i've seen playing in the background so i can listen to the people talk.
>Neither of them will try to help and yet things are still my fault
Yeah. Your fault.
Quit your bitching you fucking pansy.
>a-at least I have videogames
>when I have a job, gf, happy and healthy family
I thought, what if I took the 4,600+ hours playing runescape, and used all that time to learn how to play an instrument, or work out or something.
Then I remember, If I did that I would have a completionist cape, 6B+ and 200M in 4 stats.
No, fuck off. I have tried to drag my parents into college offices multiple times and it ends in the same loop every time.
>Go to College anon, we didn't but you sure can
>We need your parents to sign these forms anon
>Fuck those forms anon, you don't need us, we didn't need college and look at us!

>thinks that means "Faggot-sans blog"
Only thing i worry about is not spending time socializing with friends or dating.
But i just don't really want to make the effort to make friends or anything, it sucks being lonely but it's absolutely exhausting being around other people or having to maintain friendships.
I don't even care about finding a girlfriend or anything either, i'm just horny.
I just want to mindlessly play video games and never get any better at them.
There would have been no other way to spend my time. I could have gotten a job and inserted myself into the cattle position like everyone does at that age, or genuinely enjoy my above average life. I did things in the mean time, anyways. I was a straight A student and wasn't a reckless edgelord like 90% of my graduating classes. Overall, that time was well spent.
so why are you here?
>That feel when jerking off to a bunch of
JigglyGirlspictures with a Lexi Bellegang bang video going on in the background for extra effect
I don't get that feeling at all.
Every time I think about how much of my life I have wasted at work or school doing shit I don't even like instead of playing video games I get really depressed though.
I hate that relationships take effort
I would like to have friends
But it's a lot of work
And I'm never in the mood to hang out with people for some reason
I would like to have a girlfriend
But it's even more work
I'd like to be able to skip to the point in a relationship where we can just coexist
But that will never happen literally ever
This is pretty much the definition of social interaction.
You act differently around your parents, your boss, your friends, your acquaintances. The only fucking time you're "yourself" is when you're alone, if you want to define it that way.
But non retards realize that all the different ways you behave are all "you", just you being aware of who you're fucking socializing with like a normal human being.
This is true, however ture human beings are pieces of shit that i don't want to interact with. I've been coming here since 05 and i never did anything other than AFRO duck. you guys are all fucking faggots. And telling anyone that you have any relations to anything here is a huge stigma.
Have you ever noticed how animufags are always the first to complain about blogshit? that's because they get mad when someone talks about their more succesful lives prove me wrong
I think it's more about the fact that they're so used to their exaggerated animu stories that the normal plight of a normal human is just boring to them and they just check out mentally.
They reply with cute moe anime images to calm themselves down.
What are you guys' game activity?
I always look at it above 60 hours and i feel bad about.
I actually like the occasional blog thread. I think it's mostly the aspergs with ocd going THIS IS SERIOUS GAME BOARD ONLY. Admittedly this happens in /a/ too. Which I never get. I mean what are we going to do, go to /b/ to talk about how we feel? HAH!
>it's just that 99.9% of shit people do in their freetime is as well.
Delusional as fuck. Why don't you go shoot up a school and get it over with. We all know that's what you're destined to do with your shitty life.
Are you acting as if most people don't sit on facebook, watch TV, or read shitty fiction novels in their spare time? Video games aren't any better or worse than most leisure activities.
Gaming and smoking weed can kill a lot of life time. I even don't remember everything.
Shit, should I eat something? Yes - I think so. Maybe I should also stop gaming and start continuing my studying.
this. stop comparing yourself to others constantly. it is sure to drive you insane. youbshould instead compare yourself to how you were the day before. i meditate everyday and people call it a waste. i literally do not care what they have to say.
ITT: Hobbies are a waste of the time you could be using to do something more productive
Yeah, no shit. But life is boring if all you do is mindlessly contribute to society like a fucking drone. Hobbies make us human and enjoying them does even moreso.
A good hobby will enrich your life, and not just be mindless entertainment.
Vidya is an okay hobby.
You say this like you can only ever do one thing ever. Who says I can't play vidya as well as work out, create music, read, etc.?
Even then, what one person chooses to do with the life they've been given is not up to anyone to decide but the person with that life. Live and let live. Even if their sense of living differs from yours.
>tfw don't even fap to hentai anymore, just read/watch them for the stories
something is seriously wrong with me at this point
Whatever you say, friendo.
What do you think the average person does in their spare time, then? Why don't you look up some fucking statistics, you'll see TV and facebook.
>why can't I have both
Interests require significant time commitment, and both drain one's energy. The problem with video games is that many try to "hook" a person in, and keep them playing it (and making micro-transactions), despite video games having very little reward outside. Compare this to a hobby such as studying math (I understand that this is an extreme, but it stresses the differences): it is strenuous, very mentally rewarding, and helps to cultivate a way of creatively thinking that will have repercussions in most aspects of your life, but it doesn't really have a "hook" for most people.
>Even then blah blah mind your own business blah blah
We have to place limits on what a person can do with their life; for instance, we cannot allow a person to shoot heroin and then shoot little miss Molly over at her preschool. We must also demand that a person contribute to society, especially if the government provides public services to them. Personally, I believe that an individual should demand oneself to contribute to society.
People can pursue their interests, yes, but they should spend the majority of their time as (perhaps mentally) masturbating monkeys.
I think I know what you mean. Last time I streamed (inb4 /a/spergers sperging out on me) this tri-episode miniseries of some dude getting revenge on an elven kingdom because the king stoled his waifu through the sheer power of his dick. was pretty satisfied with the ending overall
meant to say that the dude destroyed the kingdom with his dick* not the king taking his love with his dick (though that obviously did happen).
Usually I like the romance more than anything though.
Nope. Because I would've been doing something less useful regardless.
Like right now I'm watching the Carrie remake and posting on /v/.
Before that I was furiously masturbating to Asian girls butts and anuses.
I did go food shopping yesterday and laundry, so that's something.
>despite video games having very little reward outside.
I dunno. One of my big hobbies (studying history) was inspired by and is often supplemented by videogames. While obviously you shouldn't take games at face value, they've gotten me interested in several eras in history. Some games also help you handle math and analysis and stuff, others with teamwork, etc.
And studying history as a hobby giave me a really interesting perspective on the modern world. So I attribute that to videogames, at least partially.
More recently I feel videogames are becoming less fun
and I keep playing them to keep convincing myself I still love to play them constantly
I feel in a few weeks I'm gonna be doing mostly art in the evenings
instead of videogames since I learn a usable skill
>That year I played about 20 or so hours of video games and spent most of my free time shitposting on /v/ and /m/

Same here bro. There would be way more if I weren't so goddamn picky.

the dreams about it.
>family has a history of being successful
>the pressure that comes along with this
>Nearly 1000 hours in Skyrim
I've dropped several classes for shit like this.
I can handle the occasional smalltalk with whomever's next to me or whatever, but
>tons of forced group projects with random people
>those teachers that constantly want to know what the students think and randomly call on everyone at least once every class
I had a teacher that was so fucking condescending and she'd ask our opinions over shit we haven't even covered, and then scoff at shit answers. Of course I'd always fear getting called on, ended up skipping classes, falling behind, and eventually just not showing up ever again and dropping the class.
This is fucking community college too. I'm doomed to be a loser forever at this rate.
>This is fucking community college too.
As someone who's attended both community college and a proper university I have to think that the whole group work/class introduction bullshit is a staple of CC instruction methods. As that crap rarely happens at the full university level.
>fed up with group shit in lecture
>"OK, everyone get into groups"
>not this time faggot
>"Anon, why aren't you in a group"
>"I'll do it myself"
>"How about you join that group?"
>"How about you get on with the lecture?"
>start acting like an asshole because it makes me feel powerful
I nearly dropped out because of group projects. Always stuck doing speeches with people who don't speak english, you never get a high mark because of them but the university is paid for by international students so you'll never fail either.
I fucking should have dropped out, I'm self employed and never used my fucking degree
>>"How about you get on with the lecture?"
>hours you've poured into your games
After 8 years here, I honestly think I've spent more time collectively on /v/ than actually playing video games.
And that fucking kills me the most.
furryporn folder has 40k hand-picked images, and I've only ever used it like twice. I just keep going out and getting more images
What is the point of all that time I spend saving images
>Girl came to me during school (2007) and asked if I wanted a date
>Told her no
>Because "I don't think you're serious."
I spent most of my time playing videogames, staying up late doing stuff on my computer at home and being a dull person at school.
Why would you want to go out with me?
I deleted my history like a week ago.
Christ that sounds horrible.
Also, fuck group projects.
Last one I did I ended up looking like a stupid motherfucker infront of my entire science class.
Who the fuck expects a highschooler to understand the concept of Schrodingers Cat.
>Years ago when I had a 360
>Gamerscore so high, so proud of myself
>Decide to switch over to a new xbox, one of the newfangled ones with a built in HD.
>Buy that little cord to send the profile and memory over from the old HD
>Try to log into profile
>Please enter password
All that time, wasted, because I never bothered to write down my password when I made my profile.
I had a girl say "I love you" to me in high school. It was in art class and her group of friends was right next to me always chortling about stupid shit. Judging by their personality I just sort of shrugged it off and went "yeah, right." Later on I found out a friend of mine probably did the dirty double with her. I should probably be more down about it but I haven't seen her in ages and I didn't really know her well enough to care
no, because if you play games, then your mind needs relaxing after some taxing activity
for me, it's the university, i have 8 hours of classes a day
i like to come back and play an hour or 3 of vidya like hoi3 or something to relax, while building Greater Germany
then i go to bed and the circle starts all over
No because I have done everything I ever wanted to do in life. I wish I had more gf's in my life but 5 gf's and 5 different partners is nothing to be ashamed of. I guess having a really good career would also be nice.
are you me
>had 3 girls who were interested in high school
>i thought they were just joking or having a laugh
>turns out one was obsessed with me, the other one moved the country and the other one is dead
'Stralia. Wasn't so much about Schrodingers cat specifically, but the entire class was grouped up and given random scientists to research about. Lucky me, Schrodinger.
Fuck science was annoying at some points in my school. The next year was based on group projects that involved a fucking diplomacy at the end of the subject. Don't get me wrong that shit was an interesting way of teaching, but attempting to have a diplomatic discussion amongst highschoolers ends up pretty cringeworthy at some points.
>Maybe if I accuse all these posts of being fake the mods will talk to me and interact with me for value and appreciation.
I usually view a .gif or .webm or something interesting, then I try to find the rest.
Sometimes I get horny from something stupid like single picture of a woman with ONE breast hanging out, then I search for pictures with ONE breast hanging out.
Also recently I've moved to 3D hentai like [seismic].
Pictures don't have the same impact, videos usually feel stupid and gross me out [minus Miss Monroe and Miss Alice 18, I love them both].
I like the fapping H-Games provide, especially when they have something going on for them like Monster Girl Quest.
>tfw parents think I'm gay because I've never had a gf
I think that way about the amount of emotion I put into my vidya.
Looking at my Steam library, I have 2.8k hours played of dota 2 that was accumulated over two years. 2.8k hours of getting unnecessarily raging at complete strangers. I could have learned the ways of Normals or started new friendships in that time. Maybe I could have even found something else worth being passionate about besides VIDEOGAMES.
>Do you ever look at all the hours you've poured into your games and think "what if I used that time doing something useful?"
In the grand scheme of things, nothing we do will matter in the long run.
There won't be many historical figures that will change the world out of us.
I'm taking Culinary and my I'm losing points because of retards in the class leaving their fucking knives at the sink and not bringing them back to their station. Do you have any idea how frustrating it is to work your ass off for 3 -4 hours just to get half credit because some fuckwit couldn't put his dishes away?
Fucking losers. If you had money you wouldn't be feeling so sad for yourselves.
>"What's it about?"
>"It's a strategy game. Navigate dangerous mazes and fight other monsters while a battle between heaven and hell rages on earth. Along the way, you can talk with the intelligent monsters to get them to join your side and fight for you."

>"This series started years before Pokemon and is in a much more serious setting. You can kind of relate the recruiting monsters; everything else is pretty different."

>you have to tell the class your interests and hobbies as well
>only interests and hobbies are playing vidya and watching chinese cartoons
>just lie every time and say my hobby is watching movies instead
It's an awful feeling, but whatever works.
I actually had a girl sit down in front of me and put my arms around her. It was a very conflicting feeling because even though she was cute I couldn't stand it when she was talking. Now she has a child that she apparently got while in high school. Dodged a bullet on that one
