For a lot of people, gaming is life. It’s all you think about, it’s what you spend your money on, and it makes you feel like you’re something. Then, one day, it becomes less frequent, then, not at all. As it turns, out, there are a lot of reasons for putting the controller down.
I stopped when I realized the ratio feeling of joy and accomplishment/time investment of video game was far inferior to the one of my other hobbies.
