Video Game Addiction . . .

Hey guys! Andrew here. I guess this is my new intro? So it is. 

Well, um . . . I felt like posting, so here I am. Bringing you crazy internet people a new dilemma occurring in my life right now. I don’t know if I’ll be able to post everyday, for right now I feel like posting about mainly what the week has been about and what I’m feeling. But none of that for right now, let me introduce me tell you guys the dilemma causing me over-used thinking and somewhat depression and sadness. 

As you see in the title, I am addicted … To video games! (Lol, I know you had a small prediction that this was going to be drugs) Not such a big thing I guess, but here anyway, so I’ll finish. I’ve recently bought a PlayStation 3, or PS3, for short. I actually bought it off Craigslist, a great site that has people sell you just about anything you want for a cheaper price! And since I bought it off Craigslist, I managed to get a deal of 5 games (MW3, Black Ops, Uncharted 3, Skyrim The Elder Scrolls V, and Batman Arkham City) along with the PlayStation3 and a headphone set for $300! I know, I’m proud myself of the deal I got! Plus most of the games I got had Collector’s Edition in them, which made me feel even more geeky! 😛 

So, I bought those things, and recently, I’ve just been addicted to playing each of the games, besides Uncharted 3 and Batman Arkham City. Actually I’m selling my Batman Arkham City Collector’s Edition bundle with the game for around $100-$150 so I can save up for this gaming PC I will use for Minecraft gameplay. The addiction to these games have just been … so parallel! I don’t know if that’s the right word to define what I’m saying or if it is a word I want to use, but that’s the word I feel this addiction has come to.. parallel..? You guys can leave a comment to telling me how wrongly I’m using this word (It’s a freedom of speech blog, I won’t moderate your comment or delete it). So yeah, I’ve been caught by my parents a lot of times recently, playing MW3. Which also brings up another subject. Since I’ve been playing mostly MW3, my parents have been concerning about my addiction for video games. But the problem is my parents are being two sons of bitches about it. 

I’ll explain by what I mean addiction.. I mean as in, that’s all I’ve been occupied and thought about recently. In my defense, although, is because my parents have put very unfair and unjustified rules on the behalf of me playing video games. My Mom only allows me to play video games 45 mins. You would probably say that is fine if I were to play 45 mins everyday! But I’m actually NOT playing everyday; I’m only playing on the weekends 45 mins! How preposterous is that?! And ontop of that, for the Summer my Mom’s being bitchy about the fact that I can’t EARN a video game time during the Summer on the weekdays without doing some schoolwork or some few hours of work. And I’m thinking how fucked up that is! She’s even gotten the audacity to tell me she’s taking my MW3 in a month, so I’ll have to enjoy it! How? I only have 45 mins on my time!! 

Now do you see my point? This is what has caused my addiction! The fact that my parents are limiting me too much on my video games, trying to prevent me in the future from playing, but instead, they’re making me even more thirsty and hungry for video games. My Dad doesn’t give a **** about it just because he doesn’t want to say something against my mother and because he can do just NOTHING. Most of my friends are enjoying their Summer, cooped up inside their house with their friends playing video games (and they’re also younger than me, don’t forget that!) while “I” have to sit around bored and probably find other things to occupy me like sports (which my parents can’t afford), workouts (which I can’t find the energy to do sometimes), and instruments (but I can’t do THAT all day!). I mean all I ask is that I get a little more game time! Even for the Summer! You know?

You guys can leave some comments for me to suggest what I do to decrease my addiction and handle it but to also put a stop to this ridiculous time-limiting from my parents. And if you guys suggested that I say how I feel about the time being too low, I’ve already that; my parents will say that I should be satisfied with my time… so I don’t know! Help me guys, please? Thanks..

This episode was brought to you by.. Lol! Can’t do it 😛 

Check out my friend and me’s channel, we haven’t started anything much, but I assume will start something soon! TheXProject123

Thanks guys! -ACP

    do you know any kids that are on drugs………… if so you can just remind your parents that you’re a good kid and they should give in.

    45 minutes is hardly enough time to play video games at all. That said, those games are all kind of blood and guts and violence, right? I can understand your parents not wanting you to be playing that for long periods of time. I know it might not seem like it, but it really isn’t good for your mental health, lol. Your parents are also hoping you’ll play outside more if you aren’t on your computer. And you should be outside playing! I wish I played outside more when I was a kid. We weren’t allowed though, because my mom worked all day. We were kind of forced to be coup’d up in the house, with nothing to do but play video games, lol. You have pets right? Play with them. Cause you’ll eventually get to the point where I am now, where you realize that your pets are too old to play with, and you didn’t get any time to truly play with them. I know you want to play those video games, and even though my telling you otherwise isn’t going to help, just know that you should be out playing and being a kid, cause you won’t be forever.

      My Mother and Father actually really enjoys Uncharted 3 and Skyrim. It’s just.. lately, I’ve usually taken part into playing with my friends most of the time since it’s the Summer and we usually play Black Ops Zombies or MW3. I would be playing Skyrim, since I can literally be stuck playing that game for a long time, but recently I’ve went over to a friend of mine’s house, and the only game I could play there was Skyrim for just two days, plus my friend’s parents did not have a time limit. So, long story short, I played the game and got decently far. The only problem NOW is that I have to return to my original profile, and to get to the point where I was at in Skyrim will probably waste about two or three days of my gaming time. This is the reason I’ve been kind of backing away from Skyrim lately. I do nowadays spend a lot of time outside, and draw (I’m a decent drawer of drawing things I see pop up in my mind), and exercise, as well as listen to music. I just want MORE time to play the things I want after returning a lot back for my un-satisfied parents.

        Yeah, I spent a couple summers playing nothing but Sims when I was around your age. You really just have to wait it out lol. Your parents are your parents and you just have to listen to them. Even if it sucks. lol.

    The question is, how long have you usually played these games before. If you spent 6 hours every day in front of PS3 your parents could be worried… But anyway, 45 minutes is too little time for playing games. Maybe you can make the test mentioned in the article Are You Addicted to the Internet?. If the result will be good your mother might calm down.

      I don’t how to respond…
      I’m not sure how to tell if you’re an advertisement or not. But since you’ve actually talked about the topic, I’ll respond properly.
      No, actually, only since I’ve been 7 or 8 when I received my first DS, I’ve been on a time limit of 30 mins, now it has somewhat increased to 45 mins. But really only 15 mins change after 4 or 3 years -.-

    I have an idea, why don’t you make a deal with your mom. Look for something your mom wants you to do that you’re okay with. I hope this helps, its how I got 1hr and 30 min per day.

    • Andrew says:

      I’ve got an 1 hr and 10 mins for Skyrim, Uncharted 3, or Minecraft. Whilst I have 45 mins for Black Ops and MW3. I don’t play MW3 as much anymore :/
