  1. This is a friend of mine, hope you like his music. He is a German artist currently struggling with the corona situation. But he somehow manages. BLOOD FOR THE BLOODGOD!
  2. The major difference between watching movies and playing video games is the alert level. You can easily calm down by watching a movie. Compared to gaming where you need to have good reflexes and a high alert level all the time. While it is the better thing compared to playing video games, it can be a waste of time. In other words: If you watch a movie instead of doing your laundry and you have no clothes left to put on, it's an addiction.
  3. https://www.actionagainsthunger.org/world-hunger-facts-statistics#:~:text=Around the world%2C more than,8.9 percent of people globally. https://ourworldindata.org/internet#:~:text=Globally the number of internet,online for the first time. But what would be interresting if being loneley is a correlation of playing games that are focused on group activities. What would invert to if you have friends and a nice family you would be more focused on singleplayer games. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4080869/ https://www.researchgate.net/publication/314092644_Achievement_and_Friends_Key_Factors_of_Player_Retention_Vary_Across_Player_Levels_in_Online_Multiplayer_Games
  4. Most importanly hadcore gamers priorize spending money on games than spending money on something good to eat.
  5. Unfortunally I do not have steam on my computer anymore :). haha. man that hurts
  6. Awesome idea. Now i Know once more how it hurt when I deleted my steam account. Yet, the deletion did not have bigger impact for me. I spent tons of money on tools. Suppose how it will hurt selling my tools, compared to that crappy steam account :).
  7. Arround 50% of the world population do have internet access. A even smaller ammount (arround 10-15%) are playing video games. Even a smaller ammount do play them regularily. While the numbers increased in the last years seeing so many video gamers in your surroundings is a social effect impacting your location not everyone arround your country. It really depends if your living in a city or if you have good places for sport etc.
  8. I actually built my own speakers. Music was always > than movies. Only when I gamed I did not listen to music. My music taste totally changed after quitting gaming. And I totally love the silkroad ensemble. A mix of people all arround the world making music together.
  9. It is dangerous to think that way in my oppineon. I know tons of people and was on and off with gaming for over 20 years. In my experience social skills who you learn in a gaming community can not be applied to interactions in person. There is one exception, though, it's if you run your own Guild or Clan or whatever. Simple speaking, becouse you learn to manage people. I give you another example: I stopped gaming. I started repairing electronics, what is a real skill that gives even other peoples real advantages. I got to know tons of people throught repairing electronics, people still call me today. I got to know more people in one month than i got to know people in gaming since 20 years. My point is, if you learn a real social skill you will have a much bigger value for your gaming friends than just being good at some games. Suppose you learn the social skill motivator. You suck at the game but if you are with your friends you win every round. It will be hard and take longer to get there but it is possible and your live quality is beyond measurement by then becouse you do not limit yourselve only to gaming.
  10. I totally disagree. Becouse of the text I written above. Short: Gaming communities have the problem of being anonymous. I never had someone in a gaming community helping me to move my furniture. I never had people in the gaming community being honest. Compared to real life friends, gaming friends are not real friends. There are exceptions, but those are so rare. Even real friendships get destroyed by computer games often.
  11. Very interresting topic. Since I had the same problems but that will be a long text. If you want I can write down my own life experience. It seems you lack empathy, no offense (what I lacked myselve alot when I was younger). Empathy is the ability to put yourselve in some others place. After you learn that, life will get much easier. I suggest you try to learn this single skill at first. It is the most easy skill to be learned in a social society. As for the silent part: Remaining silent is not a bad thing, unless you keep silent all the time. If you add a sentence like: "Let me think about it" or "I do not know anything about that". It would be a good start to let people know you listened to them and you are not bored by what they say. It is not a conversations if only one of the participants is talking. After that you can go on to more advanced topics, for example: - Reading peoples body language - Learning what is important to you (in other words your mindset but that's a much more complex topic), becouse it allows you to have conversations about topics that interrest you and seem to be boring to others - Learning whats in trend right now - Building up activities you can also share with others (mathematics is a mindes, swimming is an activity everyone is interrested in) - Learning and building up your social status (being able to repair a car has much values for a society, and if your able you even entertain people while you repair something you can earn money with it) - Learning psychological topics, like rhetorics, complimenting etc. - Learning to get teased and being funny about it - Learning that you did a mistake
  12. Yea, mostly the easy tasks are so obvious, I do not think about them at first. But usually the easy tasks are the ones who give you good results. And thats even more important for gamers becouse of dopamine intox and easy results.
