It really feels like there’s a 50/50 split in the community in terms of gaming habits, most of us gamed in our childhood but as adults either barely play anything nowadays or spend the whole day playing. I personally can almost never get into it anymore, I just end up getting board and guilty for wasting my time playing games even if I would be wasting it doing other activities. Gaming just doesn’t hit the same. Do you guys still game, and for how many hours a day on average??

I occasionally replay a series for nostalgic purposes, otherwise gaming worlds have lost their mysticism. Anime is another form of escapism that’s lost its appeal. Other than YYH and JJBA I can’t be bothered to get into series.

the new Yakuza Infinite Wealth looks interesting, but I’ll just wait a few months down the line when it’s on sale. Dragon Quest 12 is another I look forward to.

I'm so glad I lack a proper conscience. Maybe I'm borderline sociopathic (I do have a diagnosis of BPD alongside my schizophrenia and BPDfags are known for being sociopathic; I've even heard them be called "secondary sociopaths"). That way I can play vidya every day, all day without feeling guilty or shameful.

I played through the Soulsborne games 2 years ago, but couldn't get into Elden Ring. I can't play anything anymore these days, boredom haunts me at every corner. Vidya is not a meaningful activity anyway, so I don't miss it, as in the end it only wastes your precious time.

Lol technically nothing besides productive stuff is "meaningful". Its just boring to you so you focus on that more. I dont play games anymore but its not cuz its less "meaningful " than watching shit. Its just cuz I'm too low energy and cant suspend my disbelief like i used to

I play a couple hours every day, recently I've been playing OW2 a lot and ero games (replaying the Rance series). But I do think naturally at the same time, normally, I'd get bored after like 5 minutes and LDAR watching anime. I never feel guilty for spending time playing vidya, my thought process is that it's ultimately futile to work hard (productive grindset) because general intelligence AI will supersede any human accomplishment I can possibly do in my life. So minmaxxing life is a waste of time, some kid in 2070 will have knowledge straight blasted into their brain and learn anything, there's already technology out in the starting stages for this. Simple memories have been transferred between apes via electrical signals through the internet before, I believe back in 2010. Don't forget the underground experiments being led right now by multiple major countries to genetically modify embryos now to be superhumans through trial and error, we're going to get a flood of human beings with modified genomes that are going to IQ diff me to death.

The most important thing right now is having fun and living long enough to see the insanity that the future will bring us. It's a hard balance, since I do take copious amounts of stims (modafinil, caffeine, etc) and do lines of K and other things that are clearly bad for my health, but they make life 10x more entertaining to me so I generally view it worthwhile even if my life is shortened by a decade or two. I try to eat as healthy as possible, sleep well and exercise to try to mitigate some damage, intaking a constant level of antioxidants to mitigate as much from the drugs I consume as possible. It's because of drugs, as I was getting to, that I can play vidya for like 8+ hours a day. I don't have the natural energy or motivation to do much without drugs. The one that's helped the most is modafinil, I read like 50 books last year on it too without trying to be some sigma productive grindset unit since it'd simply give me a type of motivation and focus and enjoyment to read for like 4+ hours straight too.

Just imagine the compounds too that'll be out in the future. There's going to be hyperborean amphetamines, 6th generation SARMs and compounds that'll tickle every receptor ideally. For now, I cope with what I have. I'm not a kid anymore and I don't have the natural motivation or energy to even play vidya for long sober. Though I do write long posts like this sober so maybe there's copium for me after all, curse of typing fast as fuck, I just ramble on, just wait 'till I get some speed in me or something :feelslol: thinking of those 30 paragraph essays I'd write on neets.me in 2021

I'm doing the Shadow Hearts marathon now. But since September I've been playing only like 50-60 hour RPGs, I'm taking a little rest.
