Smite is a MOBA like League of Legends but different camera angle. The game was developed by Hi-Rez Studios that brought you Paladins. In the game, you choose between different gods from Mythology. You can level them out and unlock different skins for them. If you don’t feel like defeating towers. Go to the arena and battle it out. The gameplay is very similar to League. Players must assist minions on talking the enemy’s side. You buy relics like armor, potions and magic. Some game modes have 3 vs 3 or 5 vs 5 depending on your choice. I have fun playing this game but it’s not noob friendly. There were players tougher than I am. I have loss interest in it and was looking for alternative. It was fun while it lasted and was a good game. If you want to play Smite it’s available for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
Mental Health depression is a serious issues in this country. Recently, a YouTuber/Streamer named Etika took his own life. Etika was known for making Nintendo-related reaction videos.

Once you hit that 10,000 followers or more on Social Media. Trolls will come and bombard you. They will spread rumors and gossip about you. Once you say something controversial, there is no turning back. You might make an “I am sorry” video but will it be enough? What about your community? Will they back you up?

People hate video games because it slave away from personal responsibilities as an adult and child. I did a post about why people miss work and school to play video games. Readers you can check that out and tell me what you think of it. Not everyone plays video games for a living or lifetime. Most gamers play them as a hobby and favorite pastime. Others found ways to make money playing and developing video games. Mostly, males play video games in the earlier years. Times has change in video game culture. Females play video games nowadays but in the past. It was look down and don’t want to be like a male. Any age group can play video games and there is not limit.
Enjoy them while there are hot in the market. As far life goes people are aware of being a kid and adult. Stages of your life, you will get an education and get married. Relationships does play a role in video games. Depending on you and your partner interest in gaming. Then its chemistry and you have found someone who has the same interest. For those who chose the wrong destiny, one of your partner hates gaming. Don’t end up with that person and stay far away. Speaking of person responsibilities, make sure to focus on them. Get a education and go to college. You might get into Game Design in a prestige school. Don’t play video games all day if you have children and a day job to feed them.
Video gaming could be anybody favorite pastime but do you play it too much. Addiction can be a sickness like drugs and alcohol. Study said playing video games too much will hurt your brain. In American Addiction Centers, show that video games could sharpen cognitive skills. Testing hand reflexes and brain coordination. Video games depends on the mood of the player. First-person shooter could trigger anger, excitement and neutral mood in the brain. There are some warning signs of video gaming disorder. Poor performance at work, school and household responsibilities of the player. Neglect other day to day hobbies and using video games to escape stressful situations. Inability to set limits on how much time is spent playing video games.
I kind of disagree with a decline in personal hygiene because we need to clean ourselves. Certain beliefs in video game are called flow. Flow is when gamers became immersed in an activity that makes them lose track of time. For example, 6 year old Timmy Turner got 5 homework assignments but want to play a brand new video game. Timmy spends 12 hours on playing video games and forgot to do his homework. He lost track of time and will get an F on his assignments. If Mrs. and Mr. Turner would put their foot down. Tell Timmy to do his homework, he would got an A+ on his assignment. Parents would have to get involved. For adults, you are on your own and have time management. Grownups, have responsible such as talking care of children, work and etc. P.S. you are not a kid anymore but an adult act like it.
If you are in relationships with someone and you rather play video games than going on dates. Will it benefit you in the long run I don’t think so. You will likely to love the game more than the personal you are dating. This is likely you are stuck in a fantasy world and can’t grasp reality. Your video game consoles is not a person but something that you turn on and off.
There is a saying “Get a Life” don’t play video game all day unless you are paid YouTuber and work for a video game company. Other than that, you have to meet people, get employed and be a better person. I agree relationship come and go because you are not looking for the right person to love.
