So, I basically figured out my deal with new video games.
For years, I only thrived off of the nostalgic feel that the games I grew up with, brought me. To the point of seeing any modern day video game made me angry or disgusted. Well a few hours ago, I was watching a medical documentary about nostalgia and they said that "Nostalgia brings people back to a time that they felt comfortable, happy or generally pleased, usually to help cope with a difficult modern day life. However, TOO MUCH nostalgia can give one a bitter outlook on the present and future, constantly wanting things to go back to the way they were in the past regardless of what the rest of the population wants. Its also been known to be a high contributor to depression, as the person gets mopey if they don't get their nostalgia fix. In short, nostalgia, while a pleasantry in moderation, is very addictive to a weak minded person" and when I heard that I just thought "wow, that sound exactly how I think whenever someone mentions modern video games and television" (keep in mind, that's not word for word of how the documentary said it, I kinda just half-assed what they said)
So basically, I've kinda screwed myself over in terms of enjoying modern things. Its not IMPOSSIBLE for me to break out of my comfort zone/protection shell. I read somewhere that told me that it gives people a sense of protection, nostalgia fuels the fear of change, and offers happiness and old times to protect the person from the change. What I have to do is learn to be more open minded, and while that IS difficult since Nostalgia has a very tight grip on my psyche, its not impossible.
my first step in doing so is to somehow acquire a 2/3DS and Pokemon X/Y. However I must make sure to keep my temper and nostalgia out of the way, I don't want a reoccurence of last time...I never told you guys this but uh..heh...someone, a while go, got me a 3DS and that game I cant remember the name, you play as "Villager" its like harvest moon? I dunno anyway, I ended up uh...throwing it, with the game, into the street where it got run over by a car, then told the person in a calm yet obviously agitated tone, that they wasted their money on a hunk of trash.
SO yeah...wish me luck...I'm HOPING that this will help my mental issues a lot, since I've got a strong feeling a lot of my depression derives from my Nostalgia, the anxiety and suicidal thoughts though are a different story (and no I'm not planning to kill myself right now, nor am I thinking it, so calm down)
