In my opinion playing a game for example Tetris or flappy bird is fine for like 30 mins but games which involve progression and levelling up your character is just straight up unhealthy. Why waste all that time improving your character when u can improve urself and make the most out of life.

some games are better than others for sure

If people could live without video games just fine in 20th century and before, then so can we.

I stopped playing video games when I was 24 and I started playing when I was 11. Video games made me ignore my parents and be in my room all day and lost all my friends. Now I'm almost 30 enjoying my life without them...

I don’t know what y’all talkin about “quitting video games changed my life” I haven’t played since 2013 and since then I’ve only used drugs to cope with things I think it was better with games to be honest but this is just my experience

Not everyone can quit video games that easy you know, for example: some one depressed may find happiness on in video games, making them quit is like making them quit happiness. But everyone has there on opinion, people may think videos games are a waste and some people don’t, keep that in mind video game quiters

I've got into university studying Tourism Management. I've traveled extensively with my family, at no point did gaming hold me back. I've even met people through gaming online so I guess your experience differs from my own. Which is 100% fine I'm not starting beef but I felt that you partially implying that gaming is a restriction. Some comments here are definitely discriminating against gamers calling us sad no-life nerds. Even saw one comment saying to go out and get in trouble and arrested to experience life rather than be shut in? Like what? Anyway I just don't see how a lot of people watching this are just so dead set against games😑

definitely not against games personally, just addiction.

I mean, I'm a huge gamer, but when I must do something outside of it I do it, I'm smart, my grades are pretty good. My charm is terrible but I don't give a damn my popularity is terrible but I like it that way, my social life is good, I always go outside with friends when they ask to go out, and you know, we look around shops and talk about different topics. And I'm probably the only guy in my class which doesn't have a phone which means going outside means no internet, games or pretty much even knowing the time until I get home, a phone is yet to be expected though. Gaming is not so bad, just try not to take it more importantly than some subjects in your life, like school, family and friends, and helping out people and being I nice guy, the rest like Fishing, reading Newspapers, and some like that can go to hell in my opinion. If you agree, then just agree, I don't want likes :)

I totally respect your opinion about video games, but man from what I've gathered from this video is that (again dear 45 year old's that's my opinion) YOU are the problem not video-games. Like seriously you LIED to your parents about having a job just for video-games. That's just bad time management. Look at me for example or any other person who plays video games, we don't sit infront of a screen all day doing nothing with our lives. We manage our time, lile for example from X o'clock to X o'clock study or work from X o'clock to X o'clock gaming...etc.. You get what I'm saying. And also I've been snooping arojnd the comments to see what people think and I noticed this one guy insulting people and calling them ten year old's just for saying they like video games, without any valid arguments other than "it's a waste of time" it really is not. I play sooooo many video games, yet I always find time to talk to other people and travel, and I wouldn't call myself socially akward. Only in certain events where I know like no-one there and it's full of strangers, but I get over it. Also I have seen this one comment saying "come on just go out live life, get in trouble, get arrested and get high" I think it was sarcastic but you know I mentioned it just in-case. You can't tell if people on the Internet are idiots or sarcastic these days. As I said I do respect your opinion and I hope you enjoy doing all your hobbies. I just wanted to get this off my chest and play video games peacefully. Have a great day and thx for reading. EDIT:don't mind my spelling mistakes I didn't check before i sent this comment

Also, there's a difference between a GAMER, and people who play games.. I played games, my friends played games. People over 25 who define their lives under the title of GAMER are losers, Simple as that. Unfit to live in the real world. Oh, your car breaks down in the desert? What do you do? Hit R1 R2 and Square? No your gonna die because gaming didn't really teach your shit. Rant is over, cyaaaa.

Game Quitters (6 months ago)

I wouldn't quit but reduce my time to 30 minutes per day, an hour at most. It's all about less time on entertainment more time on learning. 12 hours a day on games while living off mom is crippling. Alot of games you can't stay on top of the other players if you don't invest all of your time. Wanting to be at the top of a leaderboard. But 30 minutes per day beats never play any games again ever. I have too much nostalgia to completely quit.

"I am a gamer not because I don't have a real life, but because I choose to have many." I proud to be a gamer. And if you are here worrying about your life due to to video games,think about the fact that If you give up video games, you could only do a limited amount of stuffs related to real life. however, by playing games you can be guest to many lives. =)
No Hesitate No Glory (6 months ago)
How are you guys enjoying life without playing games? It sounds extremely eccentric to me. Life literally sucks especially If you born in a third world country. You perhaps born in the world's best country and you guys have a lot of social and economic facilities and chances that I will never be able to achieve. If I were a Canadian, my life would turn into a good shape after quitting game process, however, in reality when I don't play video games, or temporarily stop playing, nothing is going well... On top of that, I'm not addicted at all, gaming is just drawing better worlds than I currently see and live. Life is pretty sick, chaotic, unbearable out there. And there is the only way to not to get crazy is to playing games. So, quitting gaming can never be a "Success" for those who have nothing to do better than "playing games" and enjoy the life as a 3rd world citizen. I found this video extremely selfish and thoughtless. Please don't get me wrong, but you had supposed to know the life is not same for everybody in the world. I don't like the way that you are trying to encourage people as gaming such a bad habit and must be given up thing. It's completely ok for you and maybe your neighbours in terms of activities, travelling the world, discovering new passions etc. But what If you hadn't a chance to commit these things? What If your future is stolen from the country managers? What would you do? Would you still be leaving games? I don't think so tbh. I do play games for not as an escape purpose as it written below the comments section but for tasting life and make it meaningful. Because when I go outside, I never see a good, well-developed city like Vancouver or the good news on the TV. When I go outside I see the poverty and beggars and then I feel I'm lucky enough to not exposed to that kind of situation. But I feel guilty afterwards. Some thoughts whisper to me, as like why there are poor people and not me? In addition to that, in my country, we are always on a knife-edge, about to enter the conflict in the middle east. I'm expecting a big 3rd world war really soon. And that makes me $hit out of here. When you watch you see a bunch of idiot politics clashing to themselves and trying to fire a spark to launch the world end war. And we are in obvious threat. That's not all I concern for sure, there are like 100+ facts that I can count right now, but don't wanna convert it into a wall writing. For short, life is not as good as your view of aspect for everyone. I'd prefer living in a video game rather than a life slaps into your face with it's all reality. That's why I will be playing video games till I die. Without it, life looks so empty and boring also a bit pointless. Even If you are addicted to video games, this is a better habit than smoke and alcohol indeed! http://www.gamesetwatch.com/Video-Games-Posters.jpg

video games did huge damage on my life. As a kid I got a terrible video game addiction that I FORGOT about life. Yup, I literally forgot to live life. I never learned how to take care of myself like brushing my teeth, showers, haircuts.. And I was still shitting myself at age 13. I took 2 minute showers to play games. I didn't care about ANYTHING. Video games can do some serious damage to a kid, as a parent you should watch your kids game time. I played so many games that life didn't feel normal, it always felt strange and wierd.

I understand where you're coming from but it's far more nuanced then that. Things happened, gaming was an outlet, and then I couldn't get away from gaming. None of my videos vilify gaming... unlike your school shooting argument.

Coming out of that I now want to be a 'creator' as you have said in one of your videos, and I want to have people as a main part of creating and help them.

mouad chaali (10 months ago)
Video Games is a form of entertainment. They do not have chemical substances that physically takes away your ability to stop playing them. If quitting video games made you convince yourself that you are a more capable person than good for you. Just know that watching movies, playing sports,or even sex could easily be considered "addictive".
Game Quitters (10 months ago)
The point is addicts are not "functional human beings" and they need HELP to get back to that point, which is the entire point of recognizing an addiction. Games can have an impact on your brain causing structural changes which can take you from a functional gamer to an addict, which is one variable of many that can be involved. Anyways, godspeed.
mouad chaali (10 months ago)
Game Quitters If you are a functioning human being you do have the ability to control yourself. There are people who are sex addicts, there are people who are addicted to reality tv shows hell there even was a story of a lady that was addicted to eating toilet paper. The games are not the problem, its the peron's psyche that is. Its this stigma that is reinforced by the media that makes people look at gaming as an addiction. Look I respect that you acknowledge that games are not bad and Im glad that quitting games made you find a happy life I just want you to understand that games are not making you addicted to them. Chances are most people who play games for an obnoxious amount of time are having other problems. Also the World health organization are only considering the possibility of recognizing "game addiction" a disorder. They don't annonce the official list untill late 2018, and they are also receiving huge criticism from people who devotted their lives to study the human psyche.
Game Quitters (10 months ago)
One of the very criteria's of addiction is your "inability to moderate your behavior". So your suggestion that addicts just have the wrong mentality is ignorant. You are right that millions of gamers play and are fine, which is also why we are not against gaming, and only here to help those who are struggling. You can point to the studies if you want, I am aware of them, however the World Health Organization just took all of the studies that exist into consideration and decided to recognize 'gaming disorder' as an official disorder. icd.who.int/dev11/l-m/en#/http%3a%2f%2fid.who.int%2ficd%2fentity%2f1448597234
mouad chaali (10 months ago)
Game Quitters As I said before, if you have no self restraint or responsibility you could pretty much get addicted to anything. Video games are a form of entertainment and if you have the wrong mentality you could get addicted. However millions of gamers around the world are normal people who are passionate about this industry. Its just like movies and books. Also I could point to countless studies that prove video game addiction isn't actually a thing but I don't want to belittle you. I suggest you do the same next time

And what about fapping? How's your family? Is it toxic? Are you frustrated with relationships? Try doing no fap, taking care of your body, you like pretty girls, girls like handsome boys Try dealing with problems you might have ( toxic family, traumas etc ) Try talking to people. Suddenly you will see people is not as big as your mind make it. Getting girls is like going to the market. It's not that special. Believe me. It's ridiculously easy because there's no higher truth and you're free, my bro. You are free. Believe me! You just have to recognize the power you have and recognize people are not that smart. They struggle as well! And there is no higher truth! I know what I'm talking about. I'm on this journey. I am the most ackward guy in the world and can't get a girlfriend. One day I decided to talk to random girls. Guess what. I kissed 1 girl and made a friend called " Iandra " here in Brazil. But I didn't take our relationships further because I am not a normal guy yet but she was interested in me I ignored her, I called her to hang out, she accepted, she went and I don't. She was confused "why didn't he come?" And I disappeared from her life. It has 1 yeah approx. Last week she saw me on the bus station. And guess what. She compliment me happily for seeing me, forgot my name by the way. 1 year is a little bit of time. But I, the virgin, the weird, the ackward, gamer kissed 1 girl and got other interested in me. Why didn't I keep it? Because I am used to my crappy life (gaming, masturbating, isolating myself, toxic family, and negative) So, believe me, bro. It's possible to have a happy life. You have power so do I. Life is not as hard as we percieve. Believe me. Personal experience
Uso Indevido You still have to study, not just find replacement entertainment. Play games for 30 minutes daily. No more than 30

I’m 15 years old and I had an extreme video game addiction. I would play gta 5 everyday, I would skip homework to play video games, I would tell me myself I can get it done in school before class. But I never did and got a zero on it. I would never study for tests and just wasn’t doing good in school. I moved to another town and started doing better in school. I changed my schedule to doing my homework and then playing video games instead of playing video games and then doing homework. But I found myself not doing all my homework so that I can play video games. This was ruining my life. I knew I had to start taking things more seriously. I joined the gym and started going every single day to build my body and free my mind mentally. I felt so good and so much better than playing video games. Then I got a job. Now I was even happier because I was making my own money now. I was playing less video games now. Then I got banned from PlayStation for “harassment” apparently. Now I’m limited to cs go, American truck simulator, and forza horizon 3. But now that I barely have any video games. I’m even happier. I honestly think if I never started going to the gym, never got banned from PlayStation, and never got a job at 15. I would be living in my parents basement. Playing video games, job at a convenient store and most of all, a disappointment. Don’t let video games ruin your life because trust me. They can

To be honest with you I would never want to completely quit video games, they have given me inspiration for doing my own animations and illustration comics. I love video games but I would never get addicted into it like 5-6 hours addicted a day, I've always been careful about that. I usually play 1-3 hours a day and mostly miss days in a week so I'm happy the way my life is heading. That's just from my point of view

potatomongrel (11 months ago)
You are saying that gaming is like alcohol. Then you just can't control yourself. Don't blame a product for your lack of control with it. There are many successful people who also play video games. You haven't defeated your weakness because you completely gave it up. If you can play casually and know when to stop and when not to play; that's when you know it's not your problem anymore. There are some things you should completely stop doing; Drugs, Smoking, and Gambling. Games are nothing compared to those 3. Making a big deal about gaming is like making a mountain out of a molehill.

Game Quitters hey sorry that was my older brother and he shouldn't have said that but I do agree with him in a nicer way. It's cool that ur life is great but ur sort of stereotyping gamers that they don't have lives. But yeh so sorry about him but maybe consider what gamers think about this thx

I quit gaming back in 2007 when I got my first car. I never look back I became a ladies man. I couldn't believe how much vagina I was getting once I became more sociable. It's amazing how I forgot about video games completely. In 2013 I finally settled down with this young lady. She ended up getting pregnant in 2014 we got married 2months before my lil girl was born. For my birthday my wife decided to buy me a PS4. I rarely played my PS4 when I had it. I had moments when I would play for hours but not how I use to. One day we got into an argument because she felt I was ignoring her. So I broke my PS4 I didn't feel bad about it because my heart wasn't into gaming anymore. Fast forward to 2016 things went down hill. We ended up separating!! Lol I ended up getting depress and everything but I continued to work my ass off. I'll say around October I discovered the Nintendo Switch. When I first saw it I was like i need to buy this whenever it comes out. I ended up getting it in April I don't regret buying it at all. It's helping me get through this divorce also its helping me save money. I work 10hrs a day 6 days a week so i don't game all day. The one thing I use to love doing growing up is helping me cope with change. I'm not addicted to gaming like I was growing up. I still hangout with friends and family. I still put my daughter first and my priorities. I refuse to become addicted to video games again. A person can play videogames and still have a life. I understand what you're saying completely but I refuse to stop gaming again. It saved my life!! Lol

Game Quitters You seem to be answering everyone. Nice commitment bro... Also, I've been a hard core gamer since N64, and almost lost my marriage a couple weeks ago largely due to gaming... Sad... Gave up my last game, but now I need a hobby BAD!! Good job on the success, hope to have my own soon!! ...Brian...

I just trade my gaming computer for a laptop so I can focus more on graphics designing and video editing. I havent download any games. But I still have my hard drive but I might turn it into a portable external one so I can have what stuff I want to keep still with me.

That's a good amount of time for gaming. It helps to stretch a game instead of blasting or marathoning through it, that I sadly have often done personally even though I do the 1-hour thing too! It's all about _self-control,_ applicable in all things outside gaming too.

And you look at people who play video games for a living and have better lives than most people on Earth, like PewDiePie, Markiplier, Jacksepticeye, Vanoss, Mini Ladd, TheRelaxingEnd, SpeirsTheAmazingHD, MerkMusic, etc.

Yes. I dropped out for a year in Grade 10, and then again in Grade 12. In Canada you can. I know in some places like California you can't.

I feel like the comments are trying to put words in his mouth. He doesn't seem to be saying games are bad by nature, but that they just played a negative role in his life personally, and that if anyone else feels the same, then there's hope for them.

I stoped playing video games 6 months ago for the cause of wasting time i was playing call of duty 24/7 i was really good at playing black ops 2 getting many killstreaks! Always played it from when i woke up in the morning til it was night in 1 am i was 13 years old and i would rarely go outside to play with my friends my parents would be like you play to much killing go outside. I didnt really care. In dinner i would eat so fast so i would play call of duty or minecraft. Spending many hours of play in my ps3 or ps4! I realized i would get mad everytime i lost badly or when someone interrupted me. I was really good to be honest. Then 4 months ago i got infinite warefare for my birthday playing even more more. My parents were happy like go ahead play your new game. Then 2 weeks later of getting the game i had a dream of dieing playing video games til i grew older. I woke up and realized this video game stuff is wasting my life. I would of done many other things than play video games 24/7. Then at that point i stopped playing video games i was getting mature too i sold infinite warefare legacy edition, black ops 2 and my other call of duty games. Sold my ps3. Stayed with nothing. Then i started getting a bmx bike learned tricks went outside played alot of soccer, played with my neibors outside mostly everday like today. Started playing basket few days ago all day to get better at it. The really wierd thing is that when my friends play any single kind of game i deny to play video games with them my response to video games now is Why play videogames when you would be doing something more beneficial then wasting your time playing that. I think im more happier now that i go outside and make more freinds playing basketball soccer baseball go to my uncles house and play with his kids. Have fun beating people in soccer. Get beat at at basketball play tag or, something childish with my neibors. Workout alot or do pushups play alot of chess. I would say getting rid of video games is the best thing i ever did! Im way happier than i was before and NO im not ganna play video games anymore never. By im going outside!

I was addicted to WOW and I have been clean for 9 years. I don't game at all. My life is too boring and work oriented. I need games back in my life. This time, moderation will be practiced.

See this video paints up that people who play videos games can't own their own businesses, can't travel around the world, can't have friends other than gamers, and are pretty much just losers. While you don't outright say it in the video, you don't outright say it otherwise either. I understand that its more geared towards Video Game Addiction but with the title and the way you are talking, it makes the video come off as, anyone who even plays a game, their lives are inherently worse than yours. The whole tone of the video left me with, "Look at me, I quit video games and I am BETTER than you. Not to brag, but this is what you COULD have if you just never played video games ever again. Until you quit, you can't HOPE to have a life as nice as mine. So let's help you get your life back on track, cause if you are here you OBVIOUSLY play video games and have an awful life."
Game Quitters (1 year ago)
I made this video to address a specific group of people, of which completely got the message, and people of whom I did not make this video for have become triggered due to their own projections and insecurities about gaming. there are a lot of opinions I left out of this video, like the fact that I like chicken, because it was not relevant to the audience I was addressing. It's no different than being triggered by my "Why You Should Quit Gaming" video, which literally states you should quit gaming IF YOU WANT TO (implying that if you do not want to quit, do not quit..). Anyways, this is a waste of time, hope you have a good day.
CTRL-X (1 year ago)
Game Quitters and if you WEREN'T against gaming you also would have said it in the video. You dont have to directly say, "I am against people playing games" when the whole tone of THIS video is how much better your life will be without video games. and once again, if you need to push me to another video to help explain this video then this video doesnt get the point across does it?
Game Quitters (1 year ago)
If I was against gaming I would stated in the video itself that I was against gaming, of which I did not. Anyways, all the comments of people who are triggered by the video are due to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-s_Co_tTKI
CTRL-X (1 year ago)
I was just repeating what I got out of the video, and what a lot of people apparently got out of the video. If you have to explain it to... how many people now? How many people have you explained, "oh no this is about people who WANT to change their life" then I believe the message you are trying to get across is lost. I also understand that this video was made... like three years ago and you may now see exactly what I am seeing from a video creator standpoint. I noticed the same trend with the "Why you should quit video games" video you did as well. Many people saying, "Oh I will never quit video games" or "I am still happy and I play video games" and then you had to explain to them the point of your video. Having both perspectives explained would have been better, saying something like, "Oh Video Games themselves isn't the problem, but the addiction to them is. I have nothing against the gaming industry or people who do play video games." The title and tone of the videos really brings out that you aren't against just Video Game Addiction, but Video Games as a whole. I can't vouch for later videos since I have just watched this and the "Why you should give up video games" video.
Game Quitters (1 year ago)
That's your own projection due to the stereotype of gamers. My video is geared towards people with a video game addiction who WANT to quit gaming. So ya, **IF** gaming is fucking up someones life, quitting is going to help them accomplish the other things they want to accomplish.. ;)
