Doctor told me running is a healthy activity.
Who says I'm running away from my problems? I'm running with them. Always slightly ahead but never too far to leave them behind.
You seem to be under the impression that it's one or the other. I can enjoy real life and fantasy.
Is that a strange concept? Are you afraid that if you would delve into the fantasy you would not want to go back? Are you that afraid your real life could be replaced so easilly?
🎶"Fly Me to the Moon and let me play among the stars..."
Because I suffer with chronic back pain and long term mental health issues, not going to go into details. I can't do much movement due to my back and the escapism the game gives me mentally helps to take my mind away from the mental health issues for a while.
That's why I play the game.
Is existing enough to make you want to live in real life? Why don't you want to get away from it completely? Problems that make you run disappear that same instant when you play the game. Don't you want to live without problems? Do you simply hope for something in reality? Do you fuel your life with that tiny hope? Sounds more like torture, doesn't it?
You're starting to sound like a creepy cult leader lol.
What makes these words "creepy"?
It’s oddly addicting. I only play a few hours a night with some friends if we’re all on. Right now I am on leave from work for a few weeks so I’ve been playing more but you’re right, it’s not fun the majority of the time.
Just the way you're wording it makes it sound like a cult recruitment campaign.
What's that feeling you're looking for when you enter each time? It's not pleasurable. But addicting. How can something unpleasant be addicting?
They kinda do don't they?
Half expecting them to say that in trade for my material possession their god Quazululu can free me from the shackles from the virtual life and the torment from the real one
Well I mean we all need a break, and for some people this break has to be escaping reality to be immersed in another. That's why I play video games. I want to forget my problems for a moment, not ignore them.
I'm working at customer service, I see all the Human Stupidity at my job, and 75%... nah 85% of people I encounter brings so down my faith in humanity that I need to escape somehow. Because those 85% of people just remembers me that if these few people I met at my job, I can't imagine on global scale how many people can be so ######### and I can't stop thinking that they are the people who have the right to vote.
Especially with the pandemic, those countless people who are complaining that wearing a mask for 10 minutes of shopping is the end of the world, who can't put in on their nose etc.
So yea, sometimes I need a virtual/fictional break.
We all need a break somehow, some go jogging, some read, etc. Otherwise, you must accept the burnout is inevitable.
Not as much torture as having to act strange and confronting just to have a semblance of human conversation.
Having to dig underneath people's skin so they have to notice. Having to act condescending so they have to pay attention. So they don't just ignore again.
A lot of questions asked where the answer itself was unimportant. As long as an answer was given. As long as a response is recieved.
All i saw was a cry born out of loneliness
Yes exactly. Seems like people were taking it personally or something. I guess that's what asking those types of questions can do. 😎
This is worst post I've ever seen in this forum. ######### like this should be removed in the first minute.
OP took 1 philosophy class and now thinks they know everything better than everyone else
... All these questions are simply my thoughts that I want to continue by looking at what others have to say. I despise the concept that we can only live happily just by keeping ourselves distracted. That probably leads to the opinion that I act condescending. Maybe I dig underneath people's skin but you've decided to look into my bones right now. Funnily, even I haven't discovered such an unpleasant cause in my actions. Maybe your words don't fully represent my reasoning but the fact alone that I find the opinion pleasant because of the result you've described still makes your comment valid.
I can hear all sorts of ugly cries inside my thoughts when I analyze everything you've written. But let's leave it all to me.
Why do you still keep holding something that made you feel so lonely that you can easily see it in others though? The content of answers is still important to me to a certain degree.
Is distraction a key to the happiness of existing? Do you really feel this calm knowing that?
That seems fair.
The real answer to the question of why we escape reality so often is cause humans and most likely most living creatures are made that way.
Even you escape reality every night wether you realise it or not. In your dreams. And several studies have already showed that taking away those dreams has serious consequences to a persons wellbeing.
And while i can see that the thought of only being able to be happy when you step away from reality is a scary one.
The ability to do so is the biggest asset human kind has.
After all, would airplanes exist if humans never imagined what it would be like to fly.
To be able to change reality you need to be able to step outside of it and see the change.
So it's more a blessing then it is a curse
Ooh! A nice scripted discussion! I haven't seen one of those since my last philosophy class!
There are no stupid questions.
I'd call it a scripted discussion. One question often leads to the next. It can seem the way you described it though.
Oh there definitely are stupid questions.
Agree to disagree.
Damn everyone, imagine getting so angry over watching 4 people escape or not being able to escape at all and then everything seems like you just gotta question your life's existence and the reason why we go on with living. All because of a videogame, I've seen people try to be as passionate with this game making a few fair points with their criticism to bring some change, keep some balance and other qualities of the game to try and get the developers to incorporate said ideas. Sadly it just never seems to happen with every criticism they get.
Your words could be just as meaningless to everyone in this forum, I wouldn't be digging right into people's skins to try and find some answers just because you hide the meaning with your feelings with these thoughts you may be having as you question the people in here. The minute you put meaning into words you read in a monitor is only because you want them to affect you. That being said even if you're not making a huge difference to the whole world, you can change what you want about yourself to making things slightly better.
Start by changing your perception in life, because even if when there's nothing positive or negative going around you, you'll just be stuck in the same loop doing the same thing getting bored and tired of it. Things just don't change by themselves, you make that change happen if you just try hard enough to force yourself to change. Waiting for things to happen for yourself is just not the way to go.
That being said; I'm honestly not sure how long this thread will be up as it rarely brings any contribution on the game itself and it's more about emotional rambling, you should probably go get some therapy as this isn't the place to go on about it. It'd probably be more appropriate to move this to off-topic instead.
Ouch damn don't hurt them too much.
From their posted picture of the Anime Evangelion, I guess they watched the show, got high and went to their favourite forum to "spread some wisdom".
Ehm why do people play Battlefield for example. Spawn, Shoot, drive, heal, die, spawn....etc etc
I mean what is your Intention?
Do you want to write a treatise on dbd?
Because it's also too hot outside to do anything productive.
