This has been the most difficult film I have ever made, because its meaning is very true to my soul. For too much of my life I have been a mindless consumer of time. Hopelessly placing value in things that never gave an ounce of value back. Now that I am older, I worry endlessly that this new generation is making the same mistakes I now deeply regret.

In the end, I hope my message is honest and clear. Whether you agree with me or not, please share you thoughts, spark meaningful discussions, and share this film with everyone you know.

Special thanks to all those who have been my strength - and to all of you for taking a moment to open your minds =)

Speechless, simply correct

One sad thing is that to some people, it takes someone else to tell this to you, instead of yourself to stop. What this video has, as a matter of fact, changed the way I looked at these things a lot. It makes me think of all the time I have used on these consoles and systems. Sure, there are a few positive things about gaming, but in my opinion, this video put me back on track, made me think about my future. This video truly made me look into what i have done in my early ages. This little video, that I watched once, has done something. Thank you, and please, to viewers of this comment, remember, this is what it has done to ME.

Very inspiring

It touched me and true words were spoken, but the main thing with games is that you need to realize they're just for leisure and when a friend asks to go out or invites you to his/her party, then go instead of playing games. I mostly play online games with my friends, through the years my friends and I went our own way, went to other schools, etc... but these games always bring us back and ofcourse we do have appointements in real life but when it's raining or we just can't get together for some reason, we get together in the virtual world, without things like facebook or online games, many friendships would waste away through time.

And for all the non-english speaking people (like me) out there, games are a great way to learn english :)

I dont know what to say exactly...

I dont know how to really say this but i just noticed that it would of maybe taken me years to find this infomation out i might of never found it out either
watching this actually changed my life a little i think because when i look at the facts
your right in every detail but i still think if you play online games with Friends in real life together you might improve your social life,Vocabulary but youll never improve or get talents to aid you in the future now that i think of my years of playing video games Days apon nights and not going outside or doing homework on time
i can imagine my future and the thought of it makes me wanna cry i wonder now what could i be doing right now at this moment while im typing this long Comment
i always watched your flims and never thought of how you earned the talent of a great Designer or How great your ideas are as i want to continue down the path i am taking right now of video games MMORPGS or even as simple as flashgames or Videos i wont like what comes out in the end so you know what i think ima go outside tomorrow maybe hang out with friends and do what i can
to improve the path i am on now and maybe change my future and maybe the
future of others i will still play video games in my life but i wont let them take over my life well ima go plan to do something tomorrow thanks brian for this
it made me look at the world a different way i also liked the detail and the facts you put into this though good job.
