Internet and Gaming.

In the last year, i was an Zelda fan. Now i am an Brony, and addicted to the internet. I've forgotten the joys of how it was to sit down on an couch, simply grab an SNES controller, and play some Starfox, ALTTP or Super Mario World.
I've forgotten my schoolwork, and how important it is. I've forgotten the awesome music of the Zelda series... But today, i opened up an youtube bar, getting some music to make me more relaxed, while i do my homework, and prepare for the exams. And randomly opened up an 16 minute zelda meledy. And there they were. The memories. The games. This thing i've done my whole life, forgotten, like an old toy. And i think... Should i abandon the internet? Should i abandon my addiction? I wont ask my friends, my family, or my girlfriend. I ask you. Mabye you can help me decide? There's so many thing's i'd like to do, so many games to play, so many new consoles to discover... And it all stands behind this... I ask of you, your opinion on this. What shalt i do?

Re: Internet and Gaming.

I suggest that you just have to balance it. Take a look at a nerd athlete as an example.

As for the rest, you have to learn how to balance it. Know when to take a break. You can use youtube and stuff to listen to music while doing work, but don't get sidetracked by it.

I use internet for interaction mainly, and some online gaming, as well as getting news and gaming information. It's an outlet to the world that's unlike any other, really. No TV or anything can match it.

Balance how much you're on the computer and how much you play on console. :3

Re: Internet and Gaming.

You should stop using "an" before words that start with consonants. That should help with your school work.

Re: Internet and Gaming.

Have you tried MMOs? Or multitasking. I multitask games and internet all the time.

Lol Personabro.
I love it.
I wouldn't use it, but still.

And in all honesty, if you're anything like me, forgo the youtube.
It's way too easily to get distracted.

But dude, you don't have to give up the internet completely. It's pretty much an essential now for so many things. Including school.

Re: Internet and Gaming.

Just follow your heart.

Do whatever the heck you want in the moment you want it.

If you're doing some stuff online and suddenly are like "Hey, I suddenly want to stop Ganon from ruling the world or whatever the heck he's planning" then get off that computer, sit on that couch, and turn that SNES on so you can stop Ganon from ruling the world or whatever the heck he's planning. If you're battling against the forces of evil and suddenly are like "Hey, I suddenly want to know what's going on in the online world", then turn that SNES off, get off that couch, and go to that computer and start browsing the internet so you know what's going on in the online world.

So yeah, you don't have to abandon anything, if you feel like doing something, just do it.

Maybe, but the year I started playing FFXI was the year I became a good high GPA student and before then I sucked. It has been that way ever sense, though probably not because of FFXI.

It seems to be the only grammatical error you ever make though. On top of that, you didn't seem to start making that error until about a month ago. Suspicious.

I wouldn't abandon the internet. Just stop using it when you shouldn't be.

Re: Internet and Gaming.

Stick to games you can play in one or one half hour sittings. Update yourself on internet matters only a few times a day. Moderation is the key to everything.

That's your share of the loot. Enough to shut you up, I hope.
