RE: Playing video games over 30
Getting older has made me much more conscious of how little time we really have - not just in life, but in a single day. The hours in the afternoon I might play a game would be much better spent learning how to play a song on guitar, or writing my own. Those are are real, tangible accomplishments that develop skills and a sense of achievement. Or I could read any number of great works of literature I haven't yet, or something like theology. Playing games cuts into the time for all of that.

I didn't think about it much when I was a teenager or in college because I could easily spend tons of time gaming and also read, play guitar, and do schoolwork, but at 30+ you really become aware of how little time (and attention span) you've really got.

I'm playing Tetris these days and Tetris is definitely like life.

Whenever you think everything is fucked you still hang on to make that extra line and another and it makes all the difference between losing and winning.

Sometimes when the game speed is really fast the shape you thought you put at the right place is put somewhere else and it ruins your plan but
1. You have no time to whine
2. It's unfair but the game doesn't give a shit
3. So you keep moving on.

And of course you have to plan your moves to succeed.
