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 =)

awwwwwwwwww. I hate you.

Great, as an animation, and an idea. I'm not going to apply the word "message" because I agree with what you're saying and that makes me a hypocrite. That's why I hate you.
But I have been pondering exactly what you brought up about our generation being faced with a dilemma about how our digital lives actually hinder or enhance our real lives. So what's my answer? An Android phone for social networking, (and productivity, obviously) and a video-game budget. I only buy with saved pocket change. Doesn't answer much, but obviously you're saying what I'm saying, which is moderation.
But conventions and community based on pop culture for young people are def a plus to be applied to any of our pop-culture vices. There are that many conventions.
Anyways, nice. Kindof funny, too.

But anyway, nice movie, you tell the truth.
I was about to stop playing runescape but I needed someone to push me over it.
Thank you, you really supported me!

I don't think I will be much more hours on newgrounds.
This might be one of my last reviews.
Since I'm standing a 3 on german, I will need to study, instead of game!

I might owe a life to you, so here you go: LIFE +1

Good graphics and great animation.
The convention in the flash is the PAX convention run by Penny Arcade. Also run by the company is Childs Play. This charity takes the many millions of pounds and thousands of games and consoles gamers across the world donate to them annually and give them to hospitals for critically and terminally ill children. This gives them new facilities, exercise and a new outlook on life.

This just goes on to poove your point that some good does come out of the gaming community.

I am only 17, but your flash has taught me a valuable lesson on how to spend my later life. 10/10.
