I'm an art student, I do a little bit of everything, from drawing to photography.
Cosplay is a large part of what I do, I always attend the MCM Expo in London.
If you're interested in meeting me at the MCM or wanna play something against me if you have a PS3 (dunno why you would) feel free to message me.

you are exactly correct, imbalance can happen in all areas of life. And I sorry if it looked like I was targeting you I didn't mean that, I just felt like it was a reminder for everyone. Glad to hear it, thanks for clarifying that you just meant interest in video games. Have a great day dude.

Warning: I wrote more than I expected, Just skip to the TL;DR section if you are lazy, or just skip this comment and don't read it at all lol. You are a cool guy if you did read though.

I hate to rain on this parade, but I just wanna say this to anyone wanting to circle jerk over video games. There is a balance to everything, and video games is no exception.

Video games has a lot of the good things you listed, but it can bring bad things too.
Video games can quickly become a deadly time consumer and can get out of hand fast. Life is time, and what you choose to do with that time. Playing video games too much will result in the loss of certain things in your life, depending on what you choose, this could range from keeping yourself in good physical condition, doing well in your studies, or having a social life outside of video games and family.

The majority of people (and i'd go as far to say all people) can not keep their lives in balance keeping up with their studies, physical condition, healthy social life etc, and play video games to the extreme (4 - 6+ hours a day) at the same time. I know first hand that people sometimes even become so attached to the fantasy world of video games they end up hating reality, and wish everything could be fantasy.

I'm simply saying that people who are asking you why you like video games so much or seem annoying when they ask you to stop, are not saying so because of some bullshit controversy of gamer gate, or shitty statistics in the news. They are most likely saying it because, they see something happening in your life right in front of their eyes. (btw I'm referring mostly to close friends, or family, random people will always say bull shit to you) I think you should examine yourself when people ask you stuff like this, and see if their is some merit.
- from a video game addict
TL;DR (holy shit I wrote too much) There is a balance, and even if you love vidya games, which is great, you may be over doing it, if family members start asking you to take a break. They don't say this shit because of some bullshit they see on tv or gamer gate (seriously though barely anyone knows about gamer gate except feminist, and gamers) haha.

Oh no I don't mean that they ask in that way, they ask in a sort of 'how can it interest you' sort of way, because it doesn't interest them a lot, or they just don't see the appeal - not that they're asking me to not do it.

I do keep myself healthy, I don't become addicted or let it negatively affect my life because that would just be detrimental to my enjoyment of life.

This isn't exclusive to just gaming though, it can happen with reading too much, facebook, too much youtube (or the internet in general) or pretty much everything. There's always an extreme end to a hobby where it just becomes unhealthy or decreases the value of your own life.

I get where you are coming from. But it's hard to believe.

I guess you could say, superficially, that I am an addict for the sheer amount of hours I play daily. But I don't consider myself one because I don't really care that much wether I'm playing or not. If I pass a whole day afk, good for me. Now this will be a very personal stuff, but I saw a lot of people on the same situation both on the internet and the real world, so...

More than having time to do stuff outside your bedroom, you must have motivation to do stuff outside of your bedroom. And at least speaking for myself, I have not. My family are assholes. My university is a ticket to high salaries that I will eventually reach, but it, and the carreer it will lead to, are completely unfullfilling. My friends are nice, but they work and study so there is very little time for any physical interaction, especially with someone as boring as me. It has been weeks since I spoke to someone I really cared about in person. And I'm slowly drifting away from them the same way I drifted away from my girlfriend.

I may even try and go outside. I actually love to hike and just... go and talk to people. But every. Single. Time I get out of my room, my family is there. Even when I don't go out, they barge in to tell me about how I "just play games instead of doing something useful". You know those comments like "hey, you came out of the cave"? They are shit. They just make me wish I never had to leave my room again. Outside the house, work and university are tiresome. Not the studying and working itself but the social part tires me emotionally, if not physically. At the end of the day, what is left to me but games?

So this thing about balancing your life... well... no. All that gives me, and a lot of people like me, is the same tired drivel.

Do you really think those people care?

They don't. I'm not saying they should since my problems are my problems and it's up to me to deal with them. But they don't. The ones that do care? They only care about how much of a weirdo you are and how much they wish to see you removed. No they don't give a fuck about controversy, but that doesn't mean they like you either. Some of them do, of course. And you know what those people do? They talk to you without that disapproving tone in their voice.

The human being is moved by feelings and dreams. And this need only increases when your life is shit. That's when video games come in. It's not simple escapism, it's a sense of purpose, a sense of wonder, a sense of motivation and fair reward. All that the average life ultimately lacks.

I have only congratulations and good wishes for you if you somehow found something worthy in your life and managed to keep it. And I fucking swear I try that daily, but it's hard. Videogames and hope are the only thing keeping me alive.

TL;DR Just because those people don't know or care about the controversies doesn't mean they think of you as anything more than a weirdo that should leave. And video games are much more important than they seem.

Have a gif for the trouble of reading this sentimental crap.

Chinese people, especially in East Asia itself, are famously rude. Kind of like how Americans are famously rude. Considering the latter's general inaccuracy, though, the stereotype could just be a stereotype.
User avatar #49 - elcreepo (03/08/2015) [-]
It goes both ways though.

Some Chinese are like that, some aren't. Depends on what social class they were in. Those sound like the poor and uneducated who are treated like dirt (and are essentially the niggers of China because of it).

Of the two full Chinese girls I knew, one was raised in Beijing and was extremely modern and normal, the other was the most polite and well-socialized young lady I ever knew. The Beijing girl was from a very well off family and the other girl was part of the middle class and felt extremely lucky to be in America, from what I found out talking to her.

And every Japanese person I've ever met with the exception of one Tokyoite have been very polite or at the very least, normal. Though I do know of a Laotian family who are all cunts.
User avatar #77 - mechgeek (03/09/2015) [-]
Looking at most of them, they all seemed to be very well dressed, very trendy and very well groomed. The event itself was also very expensive. So it's quite possible that the family and a bunch of the friends on one side were lovely and cultured whereas the other side was ... not so much.
I'm aware that this isn't a wide spread thing, I've met plenty of people from all over China and they've been some of the most lovely and soft spoken people that I know. I don't want anyone thinking that I have a hate for Chinese people from this one event.

Laos is a war zone
