First Blog Post-Video Game Addiction
Hey everyone!

So, this is my first blog post and honestly, I couldn't think of a better topic.

So, some of you might have noticed a significant drop in activity these last few weeks, so I figure I'd explain why. You see, I am an addict. Not the funny "I am so addicted to this game, man! :)" kind, but the real kind.
I have a serious problem and I have had this problem for quite some time.

It all started back when I was younger (around 5 or so) when I was given my first video game system, which was a yellow Game Boy Color with a copy of Pokemon Yellow version. Around the same time, my father passed suddenly due to a preexisting heart condition. At that age, I didn't know how to cope, so I ended up using my games as a means of escape.

This continued throughout my life, through spinal surgeries, chronic pain, depression, and everything else life brought to me, and it ended up escalating. A few years back, I could snatch up 8-13 hours a day on games. After meeting my significant other, it got a little better as I got out more, got a job, and had more opportunities to pass the time and not dwell on the games I wasn't playing.

Due to stress and other issues, this problem started getting worse again. I started overthinking about them and they, yet again, became a problem in my life. Absorbing my thought pattern, taking over my schedules, and ruining my ability to communicate. So, I decided to start working myself back to where I was. My fiance had the idea to cut down to 15 minutes(One check of Fallout Shelter) a day and the occasional multiplayer game I play with her+a bit of VITA on the bus ride to work.

I've been doing this for about 3 weeks now, and the difficulty is enormous. So many days I want to pig out and platinum Shadow of Mordor in a day or just have free play time in general, but am currently pushing through it.

I am posting this here, since I figured there would be plenty of people who understand the pull of gaming, and that few things can absorb you quite like them.

Anyway, hope you enjoy learning a bit more about me and maybe I'll post some more of these things in the future.

This game is brutal!

Are you enjoying it though? I've had it in my backlog for a while. It's artstyle looks great.

Comment by Platypix at 21:33 on 17 Nov 2018

The art style, music and gameplay are awesome. It is brutally punishing though. I have watched hours of guides on YouTube!

Yep it’s great. Some really good maps. The trophies seem a bit glitchy though.
