"How Video Games Saved My Life"

A man who goes by the username lifespiller79 speaks out about how video games saved his life. In this video he talks about how they acted as a form of escapism and refuge during some very dark times. Experiences a person should NOT have to go through.

The story is too old to be commented.

Video games are the best. Its always nice to hear about how good they can do to ones soul.

It was a little tough to watch the video, I mean his up bringing was a harsh and unfortunate one. It was definitely emotional to watch (even though I never experienced such this I could only imagine)

It's nice that he found an inner peace in Video games.

Good to see stuff like this. Ive said before video games should be looked at more positively, they help alot of people me included.

They helped me through very dark patches of my life which I don't really feel the need to detail here. Also when I think back to my late teens when I first got into online gaming I started becoming a bit of a recluse, which usually is a bad thing, but my group of mates at the time took a bad turn and started to get into trouble. Not your usual slap on the wrist trouble but more serious things, 2 of them are actually locked away now.

Makes me wonder where I might be now if I hadn't discovered WoW, if Id never played Resistance Fall of Man (the starting point for my online gaming)...I turned out pretty good. Got a job, a child and hopefully another on the way. The media needs to stop blaming random crime on video games and look at how they probably prevent more crimes than they cause, and also really help people cope with life as a form of true escapism.

Yeah speaking as someone who started gaming at 7 and is now 33, I can't imagine my life without it. Games have helped me through sadness, depression and loneliness. I'm a well adjusted guy with a sweet life today and gaming is responsible for a HUGE part of that.
