Here's the thing though.
We all literally have cancer already. Our bodies are constantly killing off cancerous cells. Given enough time, such as not dying to any other cause, they will start to let more and more slip through the cracks until we have Cancer as we know it was a disease.

It doesn't matter how healthily you eat or act, what you wear, what you use, or how much you use it, cancer is coming for us all eventually.

Let me help all the hypochondriac anons in this thread.

>Cancer is basically one of the only long-term illnesses that actually kills people in the first world anymore, so more people dying of cancer is largely because they can't die of anything else
>We live in the information age so every literal who with cancer can, and will, tell the world about it
>Cancer only appears to have increased in commonality because we understand more about it now than we did even a few decades ago and misdiagnosed cases made it seem less common and scary
>You're more likely to die by slipping and falling or getting in a car accident than contracting the seriously "fuck you" types of cancer, and even then you can live for a couple of years since those types of cancers are immediately symptomatic most of the time

>>431567413
Accomplishments in real life are much more challenging and rewarding than success in a video game. Gaming has its moments but it shouldn't be the driving focus of your life. Obsessed "Gamers" don't get that, and put in the bare minimum of effort to get by in the real world so they can escape to the virtual with all its shallow achievement. Sounds cheesy but it's true. Your mentality presumes effort in real life spent to better yourself is wasted and effort to video games is rewarding and yields a return on investment, yet it's actually the opposite.

I'm hardly unwilling, I'm just trying to get you to present an actual argument as to why I or anyone should do what you say. Your reasoning so far seems to be "because I think so," but you can't even cite a holy book that we probably don't believe it as a reason to do anything.

There will come a point in every anon's life when they will die before they get to do something. Might not be for 50-70 years, but it will happen to everyone. You will never be able to consume all upcoming media unless there is an apocalypse of some sort that prevents new media from happening. But at that point you'll likely be unable to consume any media, and even if you can, you'll probably be too busy not dying to do so.

Who gives a shit about some random person you don't even know? I mean, I'm not saying I hope they die, but why do I care if their life is made better or worse in any way?
Even if it's creating something, the only thing of worth would be something like making your own chair or something on that level. Maybe sell the plan you used for it to some company so they can mass produce this chair you made for yourself and get a little kickback off it.

you are going to be subject to your own body and mind until your death, and after your death it doesn't matter. so, you don't really lose anything by trying to accomplish something in your life. also, if you believed that deeply that it doesn't matter what you do regardless, you'd just commit suicide right now. so you're not actually committed to your own ideals and you're a whiny bitch.

Yeah, but they're did and still don't know and probably wouldn't care we appreciate them. It has literally no bearing on the person who did them.

There is no real world. We're a chemical reaction that self replicated and grew in complexity by the simple fact that the reaction that replicated kept happening. Millions of years later, we're still replicating, because nothing stops it. There's no value in building something, or drawing something, or replicating more, beyond the value we assign to it ourselves.

So if someone finds value in playing games, and it makes them happy, then that has much value as anything. Learning to draw as hobby doesn't make you a better person, it doesn't make the world a better place. Building a car or shed, or whatever the fuck doesn't change the world. These are all just things we assign value to because a vast interplay of systems, conception, misconceptions, rules, instincts, tradition, etc., which smash together to create something so far removed from "reality" as to be meaningless.

If you can support it, and you find some fulfilment in it, then it has as much value as anything in the world does.

As someone else who is also bedridden, I somewhat feel for this guy.

And when that game comes out, I shoot for another, and so on. It does me more good than hoping what I have will just go away.

not that anon but isn't dying of cancer also leaving on a bad note? I mean you look at a guy like totalbiscuit, he was pretty miserable in the end and basically his family members and loved ones bore witness to a pretty protracted and hopeless struggle against death. for a recent example from fiction, in the movie Five Billboards, Woody Harrelson's character finds out his cancer is terminal, so he (spoiler) has one really nice day with his family and then kills himself as quickly and discreetly as possible so that they wouldn't need to deal with the medical bills and trauma of watching him slowly die over the next six months or whatever. I think the character made a pretty compelling case for his actions, and obviously there are hundreds or thousands of examples of voluntary death throughout history since Socrates where the reason for suicide wasn't just depression or weakness or what have you.

Physical things crumble, and are forgotten. The only things worth creating are happy memories with your loved ones. I do that quite a lot actually. A lot of those memories also involve video games. All of my friends, siblings, and little cousins love to play. I've made many happy memories playing video games, and I will make many more. That said, vidya isn't the only thing I enjoy. I also love hiking, camping, and climbing mountains. All excellent sources of fun and good memories.

Sometimes the body gets rid of Cancer on its own. It's programmed to anyway. 100% of people have cancerous cells in their body at any given point of time. They are promptly eradicated as they pop up. It's actually rare for them to get out of hand. Like there's thousands of car accidents every day, but billions of drives are completed without incident.

But I'm too afraid to go see a doctor.
When you have to handle such a horrible diagnosis at a young age, it leaves mental and emotional scars.
But that being said, even if it were a misdiagnosis, I don't see a future for me.
When you're faced with death you stop feeling like living a regular life, you want to enjoy your last days on this earth.
It just sucks when you're alive 10 years later, look atthe past and realize the horrible mistakes you made, when you weren't even planning to live that long.

I know there's nothing after death, and everything I do will be meaningless, and once I'm dead I won't even be able to comprehend space or time let alone feel any satisfaction in what I've done with my life. It'll be like what it was before I was born, just nothing. don't care if I'm remembered or not, because I know that won't make a difference either.

Look, you're wasting your time trying to give advice here. As you can see, people here attempt to justify their miserable existence with half-assed philosophies that don't bring them any peace or comfort. They *want* to be trapped with no one telling them want to do, because nobody wants to face the existential crisis that breeds within themselves, and they use videogames and nihilism as an excuse for their escapism and not being able to work in other areas of their lives.

The truth is that humans are not suited for entertainment alone. We're multifacetic creatures. I can tell you with certainty that no sane person who plays 12 hours a day for the rest of their life, without working on areas such as their skills, family, or leaving a mark on the real world outside of videogames, is going to be happy. You may fool yourself and think that it doesn't matter, that you have "chosen" your own meaning, but in the end, you only "chose" that path because you're afraid of facing life, so you stick to stability, even if it means you will never grow as a person. But in the end, the only one who ends up losing is you.

Same here buddy.

Right now the only things that I know for a fact will kill me completely out of my control is being in the epicenter of a terrorist attack, cancer strikes, or getting crushed to death in a car accident.

I feel that as long as I avoid crowded places, highways and sunday drivers, I have a pretty good chance of making it to 80 years minimum.

If I get to survive until I'm 80 and achieved all of the goals I've set for myself now, I can die happy and leave existence permanently knowing that I've lived a full and accomplished life and lived it the best I could.

All of these fears of dying before some game is released will disappear once we're all in our 50s and all the game creators have either retired or died, we will become that next generation instead and games will have changed so much we might not even consider them our main interest anymore.

Cancer absolutely scares the fucking shit out of me though, it can strike at any moment, at any place, without any noticeable symptoms or warning signs, all it takes is just one in BILLIONS of cell divisions to fuck up and that's it, you're marked for a slow, painful death. Even if you survive the first time, it will always haunt you until the day those 00.01% of remaining cancer cells comes back and kills you in two weeks flat.

We only die because we think we have to.
I'll always go to bed thinking I'll wake up the next morning. No reason not to. It may or may not make me live forever, but the only way anything is ever accomplished was because someone thought to try.
Wish me luck, bros. I'm breaking them longevity records.

nothing has inherent value, and that is a fact

assigning "value" to something is an opinion, not an objective truth

therefore, what you assign value to, and what others assign value to, are completely different

You ever have a pet bird? They are crazy little assholes who do some really fucking weird stuff. All of them. Go one youtube, you can find neurotic behavior like you wouldn't believe, some funny, some destructive, some self harming. It's because they aren't built for captivity. Birds were evolved to survive in wild, and when they aren't in that environment, they don't function correctly. How could they? It's not what they're supposed to do. So instead they do weird, crazy shit to try and feed those impulses as best they can. All animals exhibit the to some degree or other, people included.

In every developed nation, year after year, more and more people are depressed, suicidal, schizophrenic, OCD, every single mental health disorder (barring those that had diagnoses parameters changed) has increased fucking everywhere. If all of our drives, social norms, and expectations really meant something, really amounted to the vaunted "real world", then things would be getting better. The more and more it piled up, the better people would function. But we aren't. We are statistically richer, more educated and successful than we have ever been in history. And statistically, we have never been more unhappy, and more mentally unhealthy. But it marches on, because the more of these systems in play, the safer, more able to reproduce we are. It replicates more efficiently, and therefore it comes out on top.

There is no purpose to our lives, because they evolved without the scope of such a question ever being relevant. We simply exist, because it was the inevitable outcome. So the onus can only ever be on the individual to carve out his own happiness, his own purpose. There is no inherent value on the what, only the value the individual can derive from it.

the difference between you and the guy you're arguing with is that he has a much more practical conception and application of "value" and understands the human condition of needing to achieve things in the physical world. meanwhile you're just arguing the theoretical side of "value", that nothing matters, while ignoring how us humans assign values out of instinct, without necessarily being an arbitrary social construct.
you can argue all you want that everything is meaningless but that won't make a single bit of difference when humans compare achievements between someone who invented time-travel, became a multi-millonaire and is a huge figure in the world of politics, and some nerd whose only notable achievement is reaching fish lvl 100 in runescape.

you cant really "benefit" the world because its just a floating rock in space

you CAN however, benefit yourself by doing something that you actually want to do instead of planting a tree for no reason

if you get satisfaction out of doing things for no benefit to yourself other than the feeling of "I'm helping! :D" then you can continue doing that, I don't care. When you start projecting that onto other people and saying "this is what you should be doing" then you will rightfully be called a faggot

At the same time you propose so much that causes this very malaise.

And yet that very atomization is an inevitable component of a civilization's growth towards its apex, as seen in every great empire to ever exist. The scale simply becomes too big for a sense of community to function as a part of a greater whole in a healthy, safe society. The drive for community thrives in hardship, and dies in times of plenty.

I really do feel like there's a limit here. Maybe it's because I can't fathom that level of "innocence" anymore, but when I see someone over the age of 12 getting excited about a game literally intended for children, I can't help but feel sickened. Honestly, the autists who spend all day talking posting in the off-topic subforum for babyfurs seem more human to me than someone who is actually excited for another fucking Smash.

I don't care if you haven't bathed in years, if you spend all day jerking off and licking your dakimakura, if that makes you happy then go nuts. But there's just something mentally wrong with Nintendo fans.

Thanks for the fedora. Seriously though, they're right about how we're just a bunch of self-replicating chemical reactions and how in the macro scale anything we do, say, or build is effectively pointless. The thing is, we don't live on the macro scale. In the words of Hobbes, our lives are nasty, brutish, and short, and it is precisely because of this that we derive whatever value and meaning we find in our lives and the world around us. Will it matter in a billion years that you made a garden, planted a tree, volunteered at whatever places would accept your sorry ass for help, worked a job, or even married and procreated? Almost certainly not. In the scope of our lives though, do those actions not have value? Of course they do. At the end of the day, none of these are likely going to be world changing on the macro scale, but these actions and beliefs have very visible effects on our day to day lives, and as such do have value.

It is not simply the teleological result of some civilization's apogee. It is easy to see all around the effects of trends towards globalization and supernational interests across nations around the world (populist reactionaries notwithstanding). The drive toward the destruction of identity, and the associated primacy placed upon individual autarky, has at the same time, where this trend is strongest, eroded the foundations of the traditional sources of moral and social authority, i.e. family, neighborhood, religions, etc. As such there is the collapse of this very social bond which serves to give the individual identity and meaning.

So after getting in my slightly later 20's I've discovered that to justify playing video games, jacking off, and taking drugs excessively is to balance that out by working. That's literally it. Getting a job or learning a skill balances out the recreational activities, makes them more fun, and alleviates my existential depression quite a bit.

humans need an balance between pain and pleasure to live a healthy life

Im still in my early 20s and I kinda had the same realization myself but fuck working a job like mcdonalds or retail. unless you literally have an iq below 70 you can find a way to get a degree or learn a trade that leads to a decent job that you also enjoy or at the very least find rewarding in some way.
>>
>>431590854
Yeah doing a job you actually like is a pretty big part of it, though any physically demanding work will do, at least for a while if you're working your way up towards something better.

I'm lucky because I work with my family since we have our own business. After working for a few corporations in office settings I much prefer doing this.

So right about needing balance between work and pleasure. Another things to keep in mind is that finding a job you also enjoy that challenges you elevates that feeling of satisfaction you get from "work day successfully accomplished, now on to the fun" even more, so keep trying to better yourself and work toward improving your station in life. Only good things to follow with the right mindset.

Whatever. Literally everyone of us is getting closer to death with each breath we take, and we too wont be able to play whatever great games in the future.

Putting off work is only fun if there's work to put off. Otherwise, you just become overcome with malaise.

I think that the nihilism in this thread is dumb. Yeah, there's a good chance that there's no greater purpose to life, but all that means is that we need to make our own greater purpose. Living strictly for pleasure seems disgusting to me on many levels and at least to me sounds like it would be miserable. It's ignoring basic human psychology as we all have a drive to achieve greatness/ambitions and simple hedonism will never satisfy that drive for long.

Get a load of this organic plebian.

>>431592148
Of course I have goals I'm working towards, but they're nothing grand and that's fine with me. I want to overcome moderate challenges and live a comfortable life.

I just play video games because I want to have some fun, I'll never understand the "Why living just onw life, when I have many" group of losers lurking around my hobby. I really hope you find something meaningful in life if that's how you really feel, anon, not even trying to be mean just try doing something else or going to a therapist or kys yourself

Why would I create something in a world were I don't have input? Our accomplishments of today my be besmirched by the generations of tomorrow, or at worst, forgotten.
Our words and works will be twisted in order to preserve a supposed greater good.

What do you think there is after death, anon?

I don't really believe in an afterlife, oblivion seems an odd concept. We haven't existed for thousands of years before this and won't exist for thousands of years after. But we exist now. How does that make any sense?

But at the same time, as one consciousness fades from this world, others start. I think that we simply restart, somewhere else in time. We'd never know, how could we?

and chances are we'll end up in a shit country, just due to statistics

I'm done with my work for the day, and I'm just making up time until I can get home. Not everyone works at a factory where you gotta slave up until the very last second of the day

You NEVER have to prove anything wrong. The burden of proof falls in the hand of whoever say something as a fact. If you have nothing to prove your point, well, then it's worth jackshit by definition.

This thread is so fucking pathetic. All of you depressed sociopaths kill yourselves immediately instead of just trying to get attention, or take your fucking “jeez I know so much about life and how futile it is” circle jerk somewhere else. No one will miss you, either way.

How many times a week do you think about suicide? Not even seriously, just "fucking wanna kms desu"

Allowing normalfags on 4chan was a mistake.

In a way knowing I can off myself at any time is so comforting. Man, I really need to go to a therapist or something, that's probably not a good thought to have constantly.
