What year did/will you graduate HS?

I actually am a high school dropout- well, actually, I was expelled. I was absent more than six days a quarter because I get sick easily and have chronic conditions. I can't easily keep to a schedule/make an appointment because of this, so I haven't gotten my GED yet since my state refuses to make it legal to take online.

Gaming helps my mental health too. How does it help yours?

It depends on the type of game. I find certain games, like Harvest Moon and related/similar titles relaxing when I'm anxious. I find games with some sort of fighting better for venting excess energy and anger. Every game type has an emotion it effects, I think- it just works differently for different people. 🙂

That expulsion story makes me angry 😞 My chronic conditions kicked in after school luckily, but I know what it's like to be discriminated against because of them. And no online GED ... what a rotten state.

I also play games to treat my anxiety.

Oooh, that's a tough one. I guess my question would be... what's the best way I can help the world be a better place.
I know the answer will probably require me not being lazy, but I'd still like to know.

Wow, that's a real toughie! I'm gonna have to say story. I may have times where I skip through cut-scenes when able, but I still consider the story the vitality of a game. If there's no story or interesting characters, I find the action kind of pointless. Then again, I mostly play RPGs and simulation games- but it might be because those are what I play that I think the story is so important. The actions of creating in a simulation game mean nothing if there's no at least basic plotline to help you understand why you're working on what you're working on.
