Also, waste time, make the time pass quicker, often immerse myself into a great story.

In most genuine and simple way, just fun and some challenge depending on the game. Entertainment to pass the time.

escape reality i guess

I gain a better way to waste my time on this earth. I feel like im enjoying myself just that bit more, even if im not really enjoying the game much. And what i expect are the two things i said.

I hope to regain the sense of wonder and awe I experienced in my youth and find the eager joy I once found in it.

To escape reality.

@Everyonehere I used to enjoy games immensely. Most games I played were heavy on the story, so I gained an appreciation for storytelling and seeing multiple angles for an argument etc... As far as feeling goes, that has pretty much gone sadly. Used to be that games could arouse deep emotions within me. Now they don't even scratch the surface. The expectation is perhaps the most difficult to answer. It changed from time to time I guess. In days passed I expected that I would gain some knowledge of myself or steel my soul for the bad days ahead, & escaping reality was there as well.

At the end tho, I would say that I expected for something to change in my real life when I finished a game. It did happen sometimes in the past, tho that is no longer the case. I'm forced to accept that gaming isn't what it once was for me and probably never will be again.

Thank you for your honest answers and time.
Apr 23rd 2019 2:42pm
you are most likely stressed and have little time to just be able to relax and immerse in the game is my guess.

I waste a lot of time playing game. doing nothing productive.Once i thought i will play games no more. Then i did nothing just lie down on bed. then i thought playing game is better than doing nothing. And i am back gaming.

@saru520 absolutely. I dislike how people view gaming as a huge waste of time and a bad thing to do when it's a hobby just like any other hobby. People hate on gaming, but then spend hours in front of TVs, phones, doing nothing or any other hobby not involving electronics and think that it's somehow better... Games are proven to improve decision making, reflexes and thinking. And there are other hobbies with great benefits too. Being productive all the time is often time counter-productive to the person in other ways. And on top of that, the productivity people praise is usually corporate bs and productivity that continues to circle around our crappy economy...

@psychoman I think the whole "waste of time" thing is really just another human thing to say. Being "productive" just means making it easier for someone else to live. All we've been doing since the time of man is just making things easier for ourselves and now that we have enought time to waste because of all the hard work of all the people that came before and that are working now, some people just come and say what's what. They can shove off and look at their own lives, i'll keep looking at mine and you guys keep looking at yours.

@VCoolX Agreed and respect! :)

@psychoman I have enough time to game, but I need to spend it elsewhere (need to learn new skills, because I've pretty much abandoned going to sea for work). If I don't I'll end up being and old guy who's going to need to go dumpster diving in my old age, because the future will not be good.
