Studios that create video games have made use of the human desire for accomplishment, while making it easy to feel like you accomplish something when you finish a section of the game or gotten the gold, but it's a pyrrhic victory.My husband was recently fired (no reason given). He is going to school for, so we knew that we would have to live on one income when he starts mire intensive classes. At the moment his classes are online. When my husband is employed he works like crazy.
It hurts to see what he does daily with gaming. He denies how many hours he spends, but from the moment he is awake until late into the day he is gaming. We do stuff together, but I know when I am working, gaming is pretty much his whole day (once in awhile he does projects). I admit I struggle with motivation, but I try to push myself.
Gaming in itself does not bother me. Endless gaming every day does. I plan activities outside the house to encourage him not to game. He is also overweight abd our diets are terrible. O am trying to get in shape. I was hoping all this time he has on his hands he could go do something more active.
