    A New Dawn: The Beginning of the End of Gaming Addiction


    Let's be honest. Life sucks a lot of the time, and it seems like playing video games is a good way to deal with it.

    But it's also true that nobody has unlimited time, video games are addictive, and instead of gaming, we could be working on other things in life we value.

    That's why I'm convinced that gaming addiction will soon become a rare phenomenon. It's just a matter of time before video games go by the wayside, and everybody gets really excited to figure out their lives again.

    Everybody is going to be spending their time leaping down sand dunes instead.

    Staring at screens all day is causing too many problems.

    We don't talk to our friends enough, and it makes us miserable.

    The human spine depends upon muscles for stabilization, and if you don't walk around enough, it gets curvy and painful.

    Nobody wants to get fat, but that's what happens when you don't spend enough time moving around.

    Humans were never meant to meld with computers. It's just not biologically suited for our bodies to sit and stare at screens all day.

    Look at the stars. The great kings of the past look down on us from those stars.

    Who are you?

    What are your values?

    Who do you want to be?

    These are simple questions, and I bet your answers have little to do with playing video games.

    That's because nobody actually wants to play video games if they knew how to think - they've been brainwashed, and their attention and fulfillment areas in the brain are not being activated.

    The chess match between QuitLoL and Riot Games has just begun...

    I'm taking on Riot Games for round 2.

    Personally I just believe everyone would be more successful and more satisfied if League of Legends never had existed. It's just a mechanism by which anybody can short-circuit their brain and forget how to live.

    We want everyone to wake up in the morning with a plan to make their lives better,

    And we want everyone to be so tired at night, that when their old friend asks "Want to play LoL?",

    They respond, "No, I just want to read for ten minutes and go to sleep, I'm too tired from investing in my values all day!"
