    is life too short for video games?

    This is a bad topic to talk about on a forum like this but whatever.

    I have spent my whole life playing video games and i feel like all the time i have used playing games could have been implemented into something more permanent. Think about all the amount of months you have played video games and then think about what that time has accomplished for you.

    The only benefit i can see from video games is stress relief and a form of entertainment.

    I have just been thinking lately how short life is, i'm not atheist but who knows what is going to happen after we die? I'm already 18 and time is ticking really fast.

    In this modern society we often get too caught up into meaningless things like money,jobs,work and forget about the importance of living life. I know there are a lot of you who think about stuff like this but i feel like everyone around me is so unaware of just life in general. I see everyone as NPC's.

    I have always questioned everything as a child and been into this type of philosophy... its a gift and curse to be so aware.

    So what are your thoughts on wasting your life on stuff like video games? It's sad that im in a league que as im typing this too, i hope i have opened some of your guys eyes because even i sometimes forget that life is short and that i need to put 200% effort into everything i want to accomplish.

    I like playing video games. It makes me happy. Being happy should be a key factor in life. I regret nothing.

    Well, gaming is good and time killing, but with reasonable hours. League is an addiction to be honest, and one can't simply just quit such video game, but what I can advise you is to divide your time and give everything the amount of time it deserves.
    You can kill time and make a change as well, in different stuff, such as hitting the gym. Once you get into it, see changes and improvements, I highly assure to you that you will spend less time on League than before.
    Just find something that is more productive, and has a healthy life style that you can see changes with.
    Talking as former League of Legends addicted player, who played 20+ games of League daily, and now I barely play 5-6 maximum.

    i get bored of league after 2 games now, i use to play like 10 a day, seems kinda boring, when you play league, a game is average 30 mins, meaning 5 hours a day is 10 games, you waste a lot of time playing league without realizing it.

    Life is pointless, it's up to you to give it meaning. If playing games make you happy, play them.

    To answer if "is life too short for video games"

    Answer the question "What is the meaning of life?"

    Then you will answer your question and since we can't answer the meaning of life, life is currently anything goesaningless

    Life is too short to play video games in my opinion.Whatever makes you happy do it but remember everything in moderation.

    Listen to some Alan Watts, he makes some good points.

    Even 1 minute of gaming is a waste of time to me. Even not putting in 100% effort is a waste, that's how i feel right now

    Technically then this post was a waste of time just like video games. Both are the same in my eyes both hobbies.

    Everyone else in life is technically an NPC, because they're not you.

    I love sleep. I sleep and dream of things I cannot get in real life. I sleep rather than play. XD. Feels good too.

    Life isn't too short for video games at all, if it makes you happy then do it lol. Just don't play 24 hours a day straight or be crazy addicted lol. But life isn't short for it.

    Do what makes you happy man. If thats playing video games than do that! I personally enjoy it so I dont believe its a waste of time. Others may tell you that but if you really enjoy something, and it truly makes your happy it isn't a waste. You only live once man, enjoy it

    Life is definitely too short to be playing video games all day.
    I regret wasting years on games during my teenage years. I could have been out socializing and learning new skills that would have help me greatly now.
    Sometimes i wish my mother never bought me a PC when i was 13 years old, maybe i would have turned out differently in a better way.
