Lol I remember my mom hating my video games when I was a kid. Like she thought my behavioral problems were because of the internet.

Turns out I now make more than my parents do combined, am happy and functional with a fulfilling social life...and play video games for at least a couple hours daily.

u/Cookie22222 Jan 12 '22

Feel that. Went to get the wow expansion after school in grade 12 (wrath of the lich king). Lineup was absurd so I got home half hour late. That half hour of lateness was the perfect excuse for momma to bring down the hammer on the evil video games. Got grounded and game removed for a month along with no cellphone for my birthday. Fell behind my friends and couldn't keep up, missed raids, so said fuck it, went and invested myself socially, starting parting drinking and doing drugs cause well cant really hang out with my old friends now, need some new ones.

Similar to end of your story, I'm now working as an engineer making more than my parents, and still enjoy playing a ton of video games more than almost anything lol

u/aljhay120815 Jan 12 '22

I’m in a similar situation lol My mother always grounded me due to my low grades and she said the reason is because i’m playing too much even though I just play Minecraft for a few hours(I’m in middle school in this time) and I decided to just play outside to remove my boredom and made like 10+ friends and my grades are still bad so she always locked me up in the house and my friends keep inviting me for a few months until they no longer invite me.

A few years later

I became introverted and have trouble making eye contact and only have 2 friends

u/need2peeat218am Jan 12 '22

That fucking sucks. Some parents are just like don't do this or that but figure out your life by yourself. I remember my brother used to go out during middle school too, playing sports and generally being active. But my parents would always go get him and yell at him for being out after school because it wasn't school related. When he got to high-school he didn't hang out with any friends and skipped school a lot and developed depression. I just wish they were more understanding, but I guess they tried their hardest to raise us imo.

u/FacialDark Jan 12 '22

my mom said she would ground me for low grades but she dosent

34

u/Cookie22222 Jan 12 '22

Hey you sound like young me, almost exactly! Only diff is I was forced to get high grades, else my parents would use violence. I was a Cs kid until grade 3 when my parents told me "your going to be a doctor, your going to get high grades, this is not a discussion" and beatings for low grades started.

I feel you on the shyness. At some point, gotta just get out there and try being social. That was me. Grade 12, cant play video games, only loose connections at school outside my gaming group, miserable and lonely, I had to do something. I remember awkwardly conversing with some now great pals for the first time, including a now hilarious story of nervous me saying "that sounds off the balls!" Instead of "that sounds off the wall!"

If it helps, try thinking of the most embarrassing thing someone has ever done socially. Usually, I find it's kinda hard to think of anything at all. So the same goes for other people. They wont remember that little social mishap either haha

So basically your moms pushed you towards drugs? Man that's fucked up

u/Cookie22222 Jan 12 '22

I still chose to do drugs. No one put a gun to my head and said do this (as hard as I got was cocaine/speed/mdma - party drugs). I just found eventually the group that kept partying past high school kept experimenting and I kept hanging out and chose to keep joining in.

I dont drink smoke or do drugs and havent in well it's at least been over 4 years. I never considered myself addicted either really, it was just a past time that replaced what video games me. Eventually the hangovers and next day is awful and frankly it feels creepy to be like 25 at a rave with 18 year olds dancing around half naked. Now I'm back to sober chillen enjoying video games and life is grand aha

Sad. I lost a group of online friends (who were likely much older than me) as a kid.

I told them i had to go sorry blah blah instant deleted from friends list and ignored for life xD

u/Cookie22222 Jan 12 '22

Yeah I'm old, the near full head of white hair isnt just from stress.

For what its worth, I think you can experiment with drugs and drinking and partying and satisfy your curiosity without getting addicted and ruining your life. You gotta be real smart about your dosage and drug type and source, etc. Dont reccomend it though, stick to minecraft and games if your parents dont ban it lol

Usually the saves are still in a separate folder from the game. If you’re smart, sync that folder with Dropbox or OneDrive. They keep deleted files for a while.

As a parent, I worry about this. Don't get me wrong... I'm tech-savvy. Even to the point of compiling my own Linux distro optimized for my laptop. I know some shit.

But I'm 43. Computers are a second language to me. My son, on the other hand, is learning technology as a native tongue. And he's taken to it like a duck to water. He's 6 now, so I still have an edge on him. But he's already showed me an easier way to do something on his tablet once... a way of which I was not aware.

It's inevitable that he's going to pass me up eventually. I give it 10 years... maybe less. He's gonna run circles around me.

Eh, maybe not. I have so many students who are clueless about students. I had to show an 8th grader today where his files are located. They know how to do things they are taught, but it's all surface level. For many, there's no curiosity about how it works or what other things they can do with it. Many become absolutely helpless when they come upon an unexpected tech issue instead of trying to troubleshoot the problem.

Obviously there are exceptions. Some kids are great with tech. But without that curiosity that many kids lack, most don't become any more tech savvy than needed to turn on and download devices and apps.

I actually taught this to my brother and one day our mom wanted to delete his games and just deleted the icons and just like that my little brother became a man.

My mom would usually just take my wireless keyboard and hide it but there's only so many places in the house you can hide a big ass wireless keyboard

I don't get the point, just re-download the games

It would be slightly irritating having to wait. It took 4 days to re-download around half of my games to my new switch oled.

If I delete the icon of a game, that game is as much as dead because I will forget it exists without a visual reminder on screen.

On a parallel note, this episode of the Powerpuff Girls was by far one of the most annoying. It wasn't bad, just really hate-inducing.
