Wildermyth 88 Posted September 10, 2022 Share Posted September 10, 2022 I'm almost a month into my gaming free life now and so far it's been going really well. I haven't played any games at home and for the most part not thought about games at all. I do however recognize the challenge when it comes to avoiding games in everyday life; when visiting friends and family for instance or when I go to work where my collegues are gaming. In my case I also work at a youth center where gaming is a big part of what we specialize in, and since I have so much experience it has become my responsibility to look after all of our consoles and the games that we provide. I do however manage to approach games differently when it comes to these particular scenarios. I don't get any urges to start playing as it feels like I'm doing work rather than enjoying myself. The only time I do allow myself to be invested is when I play party games with my friends, but these games have no hold of me when I'm away from my friends; they are gone from my mind the minute I take my leave. All of this is still new to me of course and I'm approaching with some caution. How do all of you approach this? Are you trying to stay away from anything game related as much as possible? If so, what kind of strategy do you use when dealing with friends and family? 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
