Unusual but awesome episode! Thank you for the moving story! :)
That episode feelt really real ;,-) Thank you for sharing your story, I truly believe that it opened up more minds then just mine :-)
by the way i just about cried (im a bit sensitive to emotions of all kind) it was amazing your courage to speak.
your points really hit home with me but i would like to ask if it qualifies as addiction or compulsion when i mostly use it to communicate with my friends and we can't get together a lot. mostly we go out on weekends and walk around town and i spend time with my family and school is always first but I find myself enjoying being a hero i can't be in my life. I can't go out and save anyone and I don't have the ability to control fear infact when something happens i generally lock up. But these games gave me a way to escape from my weakness and express myself in a way i never could to a school and world that would never hear the voice of a nerd who just wasn't built with the natural athletic ability that so many find important. however these worlds are worlds I know don't and never will exist so i have taken to making my own stories. the point im getting at is that my brain ever since i was bullyed and teased in school has prefered only being with those trusted and since i was born I have always been more detached from reality than I would prefer and there is just no way around that wiring in my head. These games have brought me back from the deepest sadnesses i have experienced though I am to young tio have seen true pain the things that get under my skin leave me when i can save a world from destruction. They have spoken so much to me that I want to design them. but i want to know if these things make me an addict or if it is just a passion for the media form that has helped me so many times. i want an opinion from someone else because i just don't know
Video game addiction is a reality and there are number of teenagers are addicted to video game. Video game addiction can be cure with the help of counseling. http://www.controllingaddiction.net/articles/video-games-addiction
After watching this episode I realized how serious of a problem I have. A few months back the girl I loved broke my heart because I wasn't talking about actual stuff enough it was mostly about games. After that I just fell apart and sunk most of my time into games. My grades have taken a serious drop since then. I realized that if I hadn't become so addicted to games things could have been different. I am hoping that I will be capable of taking that first step back into the real word. I can't thank you enough for telling your story and helping me realize my problem. Thank you this was amazing.
I might not have an addiction, but I've had ... I still play games more than I really should, but I have work, got friends and stuff ... but always felt that I am throwing away my potential ... This moved me quite a bit, I've always been the guy who managed everything with ease, but never really tried ... somehow that makes me ashamed of myself when I see people who has a hard time, just managing despite all their efforts ... I'll try to become better, that's the least I can do.
that was beautiful man..... that must have took a lot if courage to say that.... :)
I love you man. Im trying to turn my life around from this Ive signed up for classes in broadcasting after realizing I had a problem and this video has hit so close to home I thank you guys for putting this out
