I'm just getting my head around stuff, and something else comes along... but I don't even have a camera connected to my desktop. I don't like little screens, don't like being on camera, (or in photos for that matter),
I never wanted to do Online Gaming. I don't like registering/subscribing for sites I use - I make exceptions for just a few, like here.
I don't like how, even though I have not registered/subscribed anywhere on YouTube, Google puts up a very old (obsolete) account pic saying I am commenting as [me]. YouTube's algorithms keep suggesting things similar (not much) to things I might have looked at one time only, & thought, no, didn't want that. Keep putting up ads, no matter which option I select, 'irrelevant', 'inappropriate', 'repetitive'. I'd like another couple options, 'bleeping nuisance' & 'bleeping noisy'.
I used to play some games, Simple stuff, brick breaker, ball, and puzzle and old style Snake (I even had a Gameboy once), I got a NGage phone which introduced me to The Sims. I liked the Sims. I was glad to be able to get boxed discs, and play offline. Glad to be able to pause, to read what would pop up. Still, it went more and more towards the social side and online, and I was not able to read without zooming hugely, and losing the tiny cursor they forced me to use, & it cost real money to buy many unreal objects....& it kept me up all hours.
Before playing any video game, I had not credited how quickly and easily these things could take up so many hours each day. How I could sit and be playing, forgetting to attend to even the basic needs, like eat, unless it was to open a pack of junk food. I could even sit longer without going to the bathroom. Next thing, time passes, and I hear birds singing outside. It is dawn! No sleep, no tablets, eyedrops, food, nothing, but what I achieved in the game, which really didn't seem like much considering how many hours I'd been playing.
I was astonished! The worry is, If I could, I would still play. What a great way to zone out and not think about reality?
