I've always been more of a thinker than a doer and at this point in my life it's really debilitating for my health and well-being...
But having spent so much time playing games I realized there are a lot of people in worse positions still willing to spend dollars and hours playing game after game after 100% completion after finding glitch here and useful bug there.
I don't like playing games a whole lot anymore and i'm kind of empty since nothing really fills the void.
I don't collect them anymore because I want to save money and eventually become as rich as over a million dollars.
I don't even download, read reviews, keep up with what comes out anymore etc.
No more music, tv or movies either... They're the same way. Maybe i'll keep up with an old band or series I liked. But nothing really thrills or compels me anymore. Even the remnants of my collection are stashed far away from me.
So what keeps a gamer going nowadays? Is there a support system that keeps people feening for more? Is it the gamer or the game?
Last game I ever got into was League of Legends, but my gay uncle decided to steal my comp and trash it... He was addicted to crack incidentally. But since then I haven't gotten a decent enough computer to play it and have no plans to get another. I'm just a cashier at Lowes, but I always thought even with this POS i'm using I might play emulators more often. Still tons of games I haven't played I know. That motivator it's just not there anymore.
I'm reading Zelda and philosophy right now and it's bewildering to say the least.
