You're crazy. You don't need to quit video games to have a good life. I have a wonderful life and game every once in a while. It's fun, and if you deprive yourself of your entertainment because someone told you you don't have a life because of it, you will have some serious psychological problems. You will feel insecure and depressed. I know you won't listen to me now, but mark my words, you will be sorry you quit eventually. Also, you don't need to throw everything away. Someone else would pay good money for your CDs and computer. Yes, the companies are trying to take your money, but they are doing exactly their job if you buy their games and break them, so they make one more sale from the guy who could have bought it from you, and possibly a further one from you if/when you realize the irrationality of your decisions and decide that gaming is not a moral disease. In addition, you can't spell. Proofread your posts, because right now you look like some crazy 11-year-old (13-year-old, I stand corrected ) who can't spell and is trying to make adult-like decisions by telling all of his "friends" he destroyed hundreds of dollars of overpriced software and is "ending" an "addiction". One more thing: why are you getting a Sony computer? They are the second-biggest waste of money, right next to Apple. At least get a Dell or HP or something or other.

Lol, lith and me had the same idea, "computers not gaming" REP+ for that
You know, you're only supposed to Rep+ for things useful to the entire community, not for someone who has the same opinion as you. So even if you do Rep+ for something you're not supposed to, don't announce it.

Games tend to be a hobby for people, so you are asking them to give up their hobby and find another hobby...nice way to contradict yourself.

If your life is run by your computer you have problems. I will not play any games if I have something else that needs to be done. Only if I am bored will I play a game.

And how can anyone seriously get depressed about not playing games for a couple of days, please, get a life or learn what depression really is.

Isn't there some famous video game player with a lot of hardware with his name on it ? Besides, I've made money from playing video games. Go to a small lan and start placing bets, it gets real fun then .

Obviously you have never immersed yourself in music. It is the most invigorating force I have ever experienced. Guitar is the only thing I am truly passionate about.
