Your animation was very touching. So much so that I felt compelled to log into an account I haven't used in years. I felt the need to re-activate this old, dusty thing. I am a gamer, I've been playing games for most of my life; from age 4, and ever since. Your story made me think. It made me question my way of life. It made me contemplate if the way I'm living my be wrong in some way. I felt close to tears halfway through, just thinking of all the time I've been wasted. You made excellent points. Towards the end, you said you found things relating to Penny Arcade con, and went on to explain some - in my opinion - good points about being a gamer. While it does take time, and it can make you persuade yourself to push aside important things for it, It is still an extremely entertaining hobby. Then there's the community. When you're not getting yelled at by prepubescent boys I find the community to be a very welcoming, very friendly place. The conventions put together to help the gaming, anime, manga and comic communities come together are amazing, they help develop new friendships, even new relationships in some cases.Anyway, your animation was extremely moving and thought-provoking. I thank you, sincerely, for making me question my lifestyle where others have not been able to. I will most certainly keep your words in my head, and try to change the way I act sometimes, especially where important things such as family and my girlfriend are concerned.
