    To the last one: I tried giving the controller to my dad once, he just stood there smirking weirdly. I haven't seen any kind of interest in games from anyone else in my close family. Well, there was one of his colleagues, whose son introduced me to GTA Vice City (I forgot which console, probably PS2 or Xbox). But we haven't talked in years now, and I'm not sure how he's even doing cause I suck at keeping in touch.

    Regarding save files and turning off the system, this was the worst with Skyrim on PS3. It had that massive broken bug related to the size of a save file that made it unplayable, because the save file would get corrupted. And usually it would be corrupted because the game slowed down so much it locked up your PS3, leaving you with no choice but hard reset it, corrupting things even more. It was infuriating.

    Here's my two cents: 1. You _will_ burn out. Hardcore or casual: When that happens, put the controller down and do something else; take a break for a few days. You might even experience a boost on your skills. 2. Videogames aren't everything: There are other things that you can try alongside games, like art, exercise, literature, etc. Don't let your gaming (or anything else for that matter) monopolize your time. Hanging out with friends is another, like the video said. On that matter, games are that -- games; there are other things more important than gaming, also mentioned in the video. 3. Learn to be a graceful winner: You are good and you know it, and the players you defeated know it (begrudgingly or not), but that doesn't mean you have to brag or insult those you beat. That is just gonna get you booted from a lobby or everyone else to gang up on you. And on that note... 4. Learn to lose with dignity: Oh yeah, we're in it to win it. But sometimes we just... don't. It happens -- no shame in it; hell sometimes it can be fun to lose to someone more skilled than you in a game. But then insulting your opponent, making excuses, and being a sore loser, just makes you look worse; and you gain nothing from it.

    It happened to me a few times that my Nintendo 3DS ran out of battery power while playing and I couldn't insert the recharge cable in time. Normally the little lamp on the 3DS shines blue but when the battery power gets low the lamp shines red, and when it starts blinking it means the system will shut off in a few minutes. It also happened on my Nintendo Switch a few times that it ran out of battery power but to my relief the game saved at the point the system shut off and I was able to resume my game normally.

    I used to play a fuck ton of dying light. When I got the game, my Ps4 at the time had a hard drive corruption, causing it to shut off at a moments notice. I would just be like "ok" and turn it back on. But every so often, it would shut off in the middle of an auto save. I tried to back up my saves but it was literally impossible for that game. I now have a working Ps4 Slim, and it works wonders in not turning off while I'm saving.

    The last entry is surprisingly relevant to me as recently I decided to take my Switch when visiting family, with the thought maybe my nephew would like to play some Mario kart. Not only did he love playing, but my sister and even my mum ended up playing for hours. Sure, they sucked but it brought us all together and we even reminisced about the N64 Mario kart days. As the member of my family who was always moaned at for spending my adult life still playing video games, it was nice to have some time to bond through them. I should note though, I didn't hold back and won every race I played. It was a nice time but it's still Mario kart damnit!
