Might have been around the time MW2 or 3 came out, but got a jarring experience where my tuned skills just didn't apply to it as well and looking back a good thing was starting to fracture with the online friends I had. After a lot for reflection I started to realize I could either have a life of gaming alone or something else that was better. I chose the route to try to build something better. Started going the online dating route, after an attempt or two I eventually met my now wife. 3-4 years later I have a son and really suck at gaming.


Pour one out for the Gamers who gave up the good life and remember the examples set by those who turned traitor.

Are Gamers who have to turn in their cards redeemable? Is there rehabilitation or just the noose?

I tried lots of other things: limiting game time, clubs, sports teams, etc. Basically, I tried a whole slew of things and every single thing wasn't good enough for him.

After a year living together, I took stock of where we were. I was working 2 jobs and going to school full time to support myself and him while he was working part-time in this sketchy thing "for a guildmate." Needless to say, I dumped him. He was furious. He threw a gatorade bottle at me and it hit me in the head, I ended up calling the cops, and that was the last I ever saw of him. Two of his friends/guildmates came and grabbed his stuff the next day while my dad monitored them.

If you hear the words "limiting game time" it's just not meant to be.

In the video game Dante's Inferno I learned that the lowest circle of hell is for betrayers. So I do not think someone who has betrayed gaming can ever be redeemed.

Especially so the other can hoard all the game time, which is meant to be shared

I have a friend who basically only plays Everquest. For about 16 years. I think they're gonna quit relatively soon and that just might be the end of it unless they get into the next Everquest game.

Me though, I've been thinking of upgrading my gamer card to a GTX 970.

a fun trick is to ask to see someone's gamercard and watch them scramble with excuse about where it is, or worse, present one

I have great respect for the disabled as well as their hardships and struggles to overcome their handicaps in a world that would shun them for being different.
