I loved the candidness and the display of the all-too real example of MMORPG's of today. It reminds me of myself when I was a teenager. Fortunately, I did not get into the hardcore aspect of gaming as these people did, but I did have gaming addiction problems and even weight gain. I also found that I saw life much differently when addicted to video games, so a lot of what these people were saying spoke truthfully to me. As I got older, I found that my taste in video games is not as pronounced as it used to be, and I was inspired by the different transitions each person had as they went through the motions of gaming. Another thing I found interesting was the "gold farmers" in China. I had no idea that there was such a thing as when I played games it was solely on a solo-basis. I feel afraid for the younger generations and even those who are still captured into the gaming realm. At the same time, society as a whole in this world should open their eyes and realize why so many people have devoted almost their entire lives to these types of games.
