Video games are designed to make you hooked and extract as much as they can from you.  You are slaves on the world they created, wasting your consciousness away on a virtual world.  And the grinding games are the absolute worst, its just the same gameplay over and over.





Well, if you get hooked to this kind of games it clearly is you who has the problem Cheesy

Video games are designed to earn money with them, that's for sure.

+1 to this.

Videogames are built to be addicting, yes. But everything is meant to be addicting in this day and age. If you are to watch CNBC the tickets and colors and all that is meant to draw you into watching them because humans like being stimulated like that.

Facebook and other social media companies? They're addicting too.

Most things in the world are addicting, the people that are addicted have an addictive gene.

All these kind of addictive things were created to extract data about ourselves and keep in control of them so we can relate each kind of addcition to the reality and its long term effect.But if we are just getting addicted to these things and not doing anything then we wasted our priceless life.

I really dislike video games because they are such a waste of money..

I have friends and family that have massive video game collections. Like they have bought everything new since the PS2. They have untold thousands of dollars sunk into a bunch of 1s and 0s on disks thet they would now be lucky to be able to sell for $100..

Stacks and stacks of games they paid $60 each for and now are close to worthless plus all this buying expansion packages of more 1s and 0s to get a new map or fancier gun or the online playing passes you have to buy and controllers and headsets and fancy TVs...
All holds ZERO value..
Terrible investment..

And they make you fat..


Besides.. All that time you could have been reading some nonfiction and learning useful knowledge and you could use that knowledge and money to build something real that is actually worth something, also increasing your personal value through education..

I used to like playing COD zombies a bit..
I hooked up a PS3 a couple months ago in my living room, played it like 5 times..

This is a much better video game..
http://www.msextra.com/doc/pdf/html/Megasquirt2_Setting_Up-3.4.pdf/Megasquirt2_Setting_Up-3.4.html
Read all that and then go build something real.. Learn something.. Have something valuable when you are done..

Create value in yourself and your belongings..

Video games are just a degenerate waste of yourself, your time, your money, and for god sakes quit spending BTC on video games!
In 10 years you are going to hate yourself when you realize you could have retired on the BTC you wasted to make your videogame screen flash colors a certain way..

How about starting a garden? You ever build a house? Additions? Garages? Fences?
Do something productive..

If it is about the money that the player spent on video games then it is their problem.
To be honest some of us are only having a real fun in the virtual world .
But we also have to control it we should always remember that having too much is a bad thing.
The problem isn't really the video game it is the person it self if they couldn't control their self in spending too much on video games then don't blame the game,
It is their decision and to be honest some of us are spending time playing video games in order to earn from the game.
There are some online games that some players are using in order to have some profit.

Of course gaming addiction is a problem. Every addiction is a problem. But...
Behind every addiction is a big business that generates a very lot of profit. Just look, gaming, alcohol, drugs, smoking etc.
Gaming industry "Sony" for example generated over 11 billions (https://www.ign.com/articles/2019/02/01/playstation-network-revenue-hit-record-high-in-2018-topped-nintendo-and-xbox-totals)

The problem is not about video games but ADDICTION in general.

People may be addicted to various things and it just so happened that people are hooked to video games nowadays. Also, there are people who are addicted to gambling which I believe brings worse implications and effects. The only way in order to solve this problem is by having self-discipline and limitation to oneself. Without these essential restrictions, people would succumb further which would potentially destroy their lives in the future.

Very true, but you can play to earn cryptpcurrency.

What kind of method would transpose to playing and earning cryptocurrencies? Also, regardless of the earnings, you would still succumb to addiction. The problem would manifest especially you take it away from them quickly and not gradually.
