I Wish Video Games Didn't Exist

Soap box time!

Video games make me miserable, but I can't stop playing them. For example, I'm currently playing Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4. I absolutely love it.

Perhaps, just perhaps, a litte too much. I find it crazy how seriously I take it, because I legitimately feel bad for characters in the game, like they're real people. But I think that's just the problem. I want them to be real people. I have no idea what I'd do to be in my character's place, but it'd definitely be a lot.

The problem, though, is now I am unhappy with my current life, because I see all of these things in video games and think that my life should be just like all of these, when it is flat out impossible. It drives me crazy.

I guess, my whole purpose in posting this was to see if any other people are the same way, and if they have, how they combat this.

    @Avarus Cantus;
    That is just SO ME ;_; I've played numerous games up till now - and almost everything had been very delightful. Pokemon, Trauma Center: Under The Knife series, a couple of MMORPGs, Fire Emblem, heck - I don't know what's much better. My real life is in ruins. I often imagine what it might be like if Pokemon were real, and I want that as well. I have nightmares often, and I'm always tired. I don't know what's right for me anymore.

    Maybe I could be addicted to the games. Maybe. But while I wish games didn't exist, I am so glad that I got to knew games because they're, like, one of my last remaining happiness where I can find nearby. Pokemon, for example. Just looking at how my team sweeps through a bunch of trainers in game makes me feel really happy. They're, like, my children. Competitive or not, I leveled them up, taught them moves that I thought were good for them, and gave them medicine whenever they needed it. I'd probably be sad if I wouldn't be able to play games anymore...

    Not in any video game for me, but I've gotten that way over characters in television shows before. I think it can be good to feel that way over fictional characters sometimes. I think it's a way for me to prove to myself that I'm not a robot or something. As long as you eventually get over it I think it's fine.

    I wish my family was as organized as the Kinomoto family in Card Captor Sakura, but that'll never happen.

    Videogames are art with very high amounts of untapped potential. A videogame a hundred years from now could be have ten times the artistic value as one of shakespeares tragedies. No matter what time you live in you will always fantasize about the impossible. I fanasize about the impossible everyday but I don't begrudge the entertainment industry for it. But then again some would say I have way too much hope of the chance of the supernatural.
