Completely unrelated to esports, I stumbled upon this Jordan Peterson video on Youtube (I’m a sucker for Peterson) “The meaning of life for men”. He lightly touched upon game addiction, which I found it interesting, then found this comment below that got the most reaction.
I think there is a certain truth in it.
If what we seek in life and in game is essentially the same, why do we have such different stereotypes in the respective world? Why do goal seekers in the gaming world get frustrated in trying to do the same in the real world? How do we bridge the gap? Or can we bridge the gap? Is there any component in gaming that we can make use of, in order to assist the goal seeker in real life? Is this simply gamification? How is this relatable to esports?
