How have video games affected your life?

Also, which one(s)?

I chose my career path based on the characterization of Tales of Symphonia characters.

They tought me English at an early age (English is not my native language), and gave me a concept of problem solving at an early age as well. I remember I was 5 when we got our first actual PC running at an amazing 10Mhz! (that was WITH Turbo) and I remember playing a game called Mother Goose, where some childs tales got mixed up and you had to correct them.

Video games in general helped me survive (long story, 3,5 years of therapy) but video games were my actual escape from reality. I spent alot of time (cliché as it may be) on World of Warcraft and before that on Ragnarok Online. Pretty much after I was done with my therapy, I ditched WoW, though I still like playing RO every now and then for sentimental reasons.

Now I mostly play games for enjoyment and creativity (like Minecraft) and they are still a large part of my life, but only for enjoyment. I have a lot less time to play (married, 2 children, work) so I don't mind :-)

I chose my career path based on Dragon Age.


I am now a very well-paid, but slightly overworked Dragon.

I'm thinking of taking a career break... I'd like to get into a Space Nazi position - better perks.

My academic downfall was a soon immediate affect of gaming in my life. I went from a 3.8 gpa student and prestigious school to terrible 2.9 and as off now I'm still trying to make up for it in my last 2 years of high school. Although anything from here on out seems futile. Although I had fun gaming this gen I honestly regret getting it.
