Some thoughts: demonization of gaming
I don't get it why people would demonize gaming. I been gaming since I was 7. Breath of Fire IV, Tales of Destiny 2, heck, I even finished that 3d pacman game. Then I moved to Battle Realms, Generals, Half Life, Warcraft, DoTA.
It helped me become the problem solver, it thought me English, math, cartography, risk management, being competitive, hand to eye coordination and one of the best trait I got is FINISHING WHAT YOU STARTED. That's why I love RPG and campaigns.
When I was failing in college I stopped playing an RPG called World of Warcraft and instead made a "guide website" for it, and self-studied how to make websites.
So in a way I will never be a Web Developer if I've never been a gamer, but moreover, I will never be who I am if I never stopped gaming for years.
So I would say, the real problem is being undisciplined. Demonize that.
We are gamer, not sinners.
It's a hobby, not a deity.
