Autistic women tend to collect stuff, not sink hours into watching numbers go up and down
>>
>>2926583
Girls are said to be more broadly aware, while boys tend to be better at focusing on single thing.

And video games are designed to capture your attention easily. That's probably why a lot more boys fall for them.
>>
women can just go out and get fucked by a reasonably attractive chad whenever they feel like it even if they're 4/10s. Imaging if you had it that easy, you would never waste your time with video games ever again. Now you understand why women hate nerd shit.

More money is spent developing games nowadays than a dozen tv shows combined. It might be "cheap" to purchase, but the hours of enjoyment you'd get out of it likely dwarf whatever you would spend watching a bunch of different tv shows.

>discipline
Video games are the opposite of discipline. Video games are accomplishment simulators that subverts discipline in the name of a quick and easy dopamine fix that requires zero effort, or rather the exact amount of low-key effort for the player to find it stimulating enough to feel a sense of accomplishment at the end. We're all just rats running on a digital spinning wheel, no matter how fast you kick your stubby little legs the only thing you will ever have to show for it in the end is a "game over" screen, and that's as true for people who rush through casual games as it is for marathon RPG enthusiasts

You *could* make the argument that e-sports require discipline because they require huge amounts of practice, application, dedication, and teamwork and you're competing against another person with the determination to win for the possibility of payment and prestige, but the level that 99% of us play at is no better than trying to attach significance to a friendly game of basketball with your neighbors, but even that at least leads to the accomplishment of a healthy body and fostered team spirit and sense of community. Video games don't even give you that.

Don't get me wrong I play games and I love the right ones but I am not under any delusions about the fact that it is all just an elaborate and cleverly disguised waste of time
>>
>Discipline
>Fucking video games
Lol, everything you do on your monitor is fucking pointless and gives the illusion of accomplishment.

If you use discipline for something don't waste your life away in front of a pc screen but do something good for you. Read pic related, despite the memes it is unironically an easy beginners book because it was released in pieces in a russian newspaper, and is thus written to be able to be appreciated by the average barely literate common man
>>
>>2926945
While this is all true, the same could be said of pretty much any activity/pursuit in the modern world whether its reading books, lifting, chasing tail, or accumulating wealth. These are all just diversions that people engage in to satisfy the power process and fill the void that technology has created by rendering trivial humanity's evolutionary imperative which is survival in nature.
>>
>>2927744
Well said. That's why people pray for the end of the world, they subconsciously crave for the technoteat to be pulled from them, for they lack the Will to do it themselves.

Ridiculuos. Absolutely none of these pursuits is as low bar of an effort as video games. Video games are on the same level as solving crosswords, with the exception that it's an exercise to maintain your reflexes. You can prescribe it to the elderly stave off alzheimers. There's absolutely zero value to it as an activity otherwise.
>>
apparently most of you guys despise playing videogames
>>
>>2927765
I think you're missing my point, but as for this:
>Video games are on the same level as solving crosswords
If done in moderation, so what? If you practiced what you preached and invested all of your time in disciplined, constructive activity we wouldn't even be having this conversation.
>>
>>2927806
>If done in moderation, so what?
Because you don't do it in moderation, no matter how disciplined you are. Video games are designed to provide cheap dopamine hits, therefore the longer you maintain the addiction the less disciplined you become.
>>
>>2927811
I can't say I have this problem. When I was younger I was hooked, now I can't stand playing a game for more than an hour per sitting. These days I spend more time discussing games than I do playing them and am more interested in gamedev than anything.
>>
>>2926583
if your recreational past time requires "discipline" then maybe your time would be better spend elsewhere
>>
>>2926583
>why dont they have the discipline to get addicted to videogames
They have discipline unlike men and thats why they're not wasting their life on rpgs and actually do important things like going to school,getting a job,moving out of their moms house instead of sitting in their moms basement all day trying to get their friendliness level with John Smith/Jane Doe to unlock the kiss scene.
>>
>>2926583
Average girl spends their time grinding IRL. They all have like three degrees, participate in some hobby every weekday, volunteer and yet still have time to maintain friendships.
>>
>>2927785
it's just keeping a healthy perspective
>>
>>2927832
It's not a realistic one though. You can spend your adolesence playing vidya and still graduate from college, have a career, a house, a marriage, etc. These are not difficult things to achieve with modest effort. I know because I did it, a lot of the people I knew growing up did too. I also remember people in high school telling me games were for losers who went on to become dishwashers or die of drug overdoses.
>>
>>2927827
>participate in some hobby every weekday
Yeah, watching tv. Every woman I know does this, and they all think games are a 'waste of time'.
>>
>>2927846
You're not wrong, but anyone who attached unwarranted significance to their video gaming, such as some autismo thinking that he is better than women because he plays ultra-autistic RPGs, is the issue here
>>
>>2927811
>Because you don't do it in moderation, no matter how disciplined you are.
lol, video game addiction is a symptom, same as any other addiction.
>>
>>2927878
It's not anything to do with that, it's just fox and the grapes. "Girls are icky because they won't fuck me."
>>
>>2927882
Of course it's sour grapes and different incels find different ways of seething about it and one such way is OP's way of thinking that the video games he plays makes him superior to every one else
>>
>>2927886
I doubt he actually thinks that.

My computer can't run the OG edition smoothly anymore so I'm gonna have to mod up the EE version.

Except I do?
I also played Pillars of Eternity, Dragon Age Origins, Mass Effect 1, Andromeda, Fallout 3 and New Vegas. On top of the countless jRPGs I played from a previous age. I might have placed 500 hours on DAO alone. Recently I tried Pathfinder Kingmaker (PS5) but the early segment and its gameplay mechanics is really really complicated to me. I might try it out again
