Sometimes I think about the hours and hours I spend playing video games watching anime.    
   
And honestly it really is just an escape, tremendous fun and sustenance.   
   
Without it I couldn't stay sane, but I can't keep wasting so much time. I have so much to take care of and to do.   
   
Life is really just an unfair and extremely difficult RPG after all...   
   
And you can't beat a game you don't play.

For the anime in the gif use this It's good just don't watch after the 14th episode

I love you for saying that. SAO did get considerably worse after the 14th episode. Its like the creators said "We've made this awesome anime about the deep reactions between humans when placed in a closed off environment. Eh lets drive it straight into the ******* ground."

Sword Art Online is what it is. I'm enjoying it. I'll leave the final verdict to the ending.

And then you fap and everything's alright.

I'll share a secret, masturbation isn't that great for me. I'm not sure why, but my orgasms don't feel especially strong. I mean my body goes through the motions but as for physical pleasure.. eh I don't feel too much. I suppose this grants me some good stamina, but it doesn't do much for my overall sanity. It'll cure my hormonal hunger, but not my hunger for life.

but somehow it can make you lose even when the cartridge isn't in
User avatar #251 to #146 - infinitereaper (12/15/2012) [-]
Well, yes, but if you put the cartridge in, turn the power on and play the game... well you have a chance of winning that didn't' have when it wasn't in.

Do you have any 			*******		 idea how long i've spent and how many times i've failed, trying to create your exact .gif?

User avatar #249 to #198 - infinitereaper (12/15/2012) [-]
Dude I just google everything. The art of the gif is unknown to me. But if it really matters to you, you'll probably figure it out eventually.
#270 to #249 - hemming (12/15/2012) [-]
I can do it finely, It's just this particular gif ****** over again and again and again.
Too slow
Too fast
Movement too jerky
Quality too low
Quality too high (giant file size)
Nothing would go right...

Don't assume I'm naive or weak anon.
Sure my health ain't all it's cracked up to be, sure I've got some emotional and mental wounds, but I'm still alive and fighting.
I've survived this long, and I've never been afraid to bleed or bash in a few skulls. I'm going to assume that you're the failure here. Don't blame me for your own shortcomings.

But but... you can't win The Game
User avatar #258 to #252 - infinitereaper (12/15/2012) [-]
It's not always about winning or loosing mind you, and if that was a reference I disagree.
User avatar #263 to #258 - wellfuckmylife (12/15/2012) [-]
Yes. Sometime's it's good to lose...
But not The Game. You never win it and you only lose it (if you are playing it)
User avatar #268 to #263 - infinitereaper (12/15/2012) [-]
If you aren't playing "The Game" you are winning. Also I've always thought "The Game" was ******* stupid.

dammit man.........i was trying to forget about that....
User avatar #59 to #57 - infinitereaper (12/15/2012) [-]
I tried to forget for years, but I think I finally realized that it's impossible to ever truly forget. What I do know is that some of the happiest pain free moments of my life came after I felt that I had done something to better my life. For just a moment, my poor health didn't phase me nor the pain it gives me, and the past stopped mattering... ah. I'm willing to play this incredibly backwards game if it means capturing that feeling forever.
#101 to #49 - John Cena (12/15/2012) [-]
Hmm, using an SAO gif as reference for talking about both anime AND gaming. Very nice, infinitereaper. Very nice indeed.

If life were a game it would've gotten 1/2 a star out of ten.

You don't necessary have to get an S+ rating to defeat the final boss, if you catch my drift.

trust me it's rare I'm this positive or optimist, but in these rare moments I try to ingrain it in my soul as much as possible.
#65 to #60 - mastercolossus (12/15/2012) [-]
actually the final boss is a glitching instakill maniac that is even stronger than (insert strongest and most powerful thing you can think of) and is designed to be unbeatable. plus it can warp to wherever you are whenever it wants even if the game is paused.
User avatar #75 to #65 - HeartOfTheDL (12/15/2012) [-]
The final boss is the mirror that sits in the middle of nowhere. As you stare into the reflection it stares back with dark unforgiving eyes. The longer you stare the uglier and monstrous it becomes.

You must look past the horror you see and walk forward past the mirror. Keep on moving forward into the mist that had gathered and never turn back. You'll stumble and fall and you'll gain scratches and scars, however as long as you don't turn back to look at the mirror you'll reach then you'll reach the credits.

If you turn back then all that progress, all that good you've done will be undone. The game will be over the screen will turn dark. The light that was right in front of you will fade.

Hm. Cheat codes, hacking... virus. There has to be some work around, loop hole or exploit. You just haven't thought of it yet.

you mean humanity hasnt yet
User avatar #83 to #77 - infinitereaper (12/15/2012) [-]
True enough, though it's not going to get any better if no one does anything about it. I'll give it a shot myself but who knows how far I'll go with that.
#280 to #55 - mastercolossus (12/16/2012) [-]
why is that? its the most accurate rpg, platformer, open world, fps and driving/flying simulator. and you could play games while you play the game. life is a game. just try not to play it on hard.

Video Game Ending Syndrome:


the intense feeling of sadness that a person may experience upon completion of a video game that the person was able to really immerse themselves in. These video games often draw the user into the their story, involving the user in the characters lives, so that when something happens to the characters the user feels emotions connected with it. This type of syndrome can be experienced mid-game if say, your favorite character is killed off, however it usually only appears at the conclusion of the game, wherein the story reaches its conclusion and the feeling of sadness is created by either the events in the conclusion, or simply the fact that gameplay, and the storyline is not over. This syndrome usually lasts at maximum one day, and can be cured by the purchase of a new video game which is equally involving. There is also some evidence to suggest a similar syndrome exists with "books" however this is impossible to test since the art of reading has been lost for many years.

And people ask me why I still haven't beaten Borderlands 2.
#194 to #175 - qworta (12/15/2012) [-]
i still haven't beaten borderlands either, I want to play it but I got preoccpied with Dishonoured and far cry 3. Doesn't help that I also recently got back into skyrim and put a ton of awesome mods into it...
User avatar #177 to #175 - brandofan (12/15/2012) [-]
I did and I think I might be bored of it..... I don't want to be bored of it................ IT'S AN AWESOME ******* GAME *Sobbing*

Did you get the season pass?!
User avatar #179 to #178 - brandofan (12/15/2012) [-]
No :( I'm waiting to buy the DLC
User avatar #183 to #179 - Tvfreek (12/15/2012) [-]
Why? Can't you just get the season pass and wait till they all come out? I'm pretty sure it's cheaper.
User avatar #184 to #183 - brandofan (12/15/2012) [-]
It probably is but I had no money the day it came out (Spent it all on the game) and I didn't think that far in the future.
User avatar #186 to #184 - Tvfreek (12/15/2012) [-]
Oh, yeah gamestop didn't tell me I hadn't payed it off so when I went in to buy it, I couldn't and had my friend's mom pay for it (60$) and I'm giving her 100$ of my christmas money to her.

The Solution.
User avatar #229 to #206 - Crusader (12/15/2012) [-]
If you know what you are doing you can beat each of the DLCs and Main story in less than 4 hours a piece, and since they don't really overlap, (except for broken steel) then they should each be considered a separate game within a game.
#233 to #229 - juggernautchunk (12/15/2012) [-]
Yes, you're correct, but I don't think that very many people are going to play a fallout game and not do any side quests, commit any genocides, or venture through the wasteland for extended amounts of time.

I've been playing New Vegas a lot, does that still count?

New vegas is much longer that fallout 3
so yes

If there's one thing i ahte about gaming, its that after I've played a game, I can't do anything but watch videos and chat.
My brain just refuses to work.

I dont play much games, but i know this feeling from every television show i've ever watched.

I watched all Breaking Bad episodes in about a month.. Then when there were no more episodes to watch, I was extremely depressed for the following week or so.
I had no idea what to do with my time, so the only thing i could do, was start on a new show.

I am currently watching The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Game Of Thrones, Dexter, Supernatural, Dr. Who and HIMYM... I regret nothing.
