How We Fix The Millennials: An In-Depth Guide

I am really sick and tired of seeing this new generation of entitled brats be so pretentious is society. The millennials of course. They are by far the most asinine generation to ever exist, and this is proven irrefutably by their lack of pride. They lack respect for every basic aspect of a civilized society, which is evident through their music. I don't care about hearing some dude using autotune to replace his shitty singing rap about how many ho's he has. I would rather listen to real music my father showed me when I was growing up (That was good stuff man, I never had a good relationship with him, and that music was pretty much our only connection). The key issue, is that they all feel a sense of entitlement that is totally unsubstantiated. Now, of course, we need to fix this before they get old enough to vote. Or else, I mean, who knows, they might change something. We need to attack the root of the problem. And I think I know what that root is. You see, I stopped playing video games a few years ago when I became an adult, and ever since then, the things I like have been increasingly different from the things that those who are younger than me like. And that's it, it's the video games. Everyone plays a video game expecting to win. You always win. There is always some sort of instant reward. Whether you're picking up the phone on call of duty or reading tarot cards on Destiny, you're always receiving something, getting that instant gratification. Over time, this makes millennials far more interested in instantly receiving what they want rather than earning it. They want things like free healthcare because it doesn't cost them any chips to respawn in Halo. They want free education because the tutorial is always offered automatically. Video games are killing us, and I think we should make the conscious effort of not allowing children to play it. I mean seriously, video games are practically mindwashing our kids into becoming communists. [b]TL;DR:[/b] We must stop our children from playing video games if we want to fix the millennials.

    Make them play ark survival on pvp only. They grind for 14 hours straight, get fuq'd, then grind for 14 hours more. No more entitlement.

The game gives you random rewards for completing activities. Destiny doesn't give you what you want all the time, in fact, ot hardly gives you what you want. I learned to not expect something i want for completing something. There is also a grind in destiny for some rewards, meaning you want something you either do it enough, or you build up to what you want. The existance of Destiny in your arguement and how you portray it is completely wrong, and quite frankly, i do not think you ever played any of the games you mentioned. Because your portrayal of videogames is blatantly inaccurate.

              • It was then that I knew Cellar has completely lost his mind...... you just described sjw leftists. Not all millennials are entitled sjws. Maybe stop glorifying shitty rap and shitty people in pop culture and maybe just maybe you'll see a change in society. Unfortunately it starts with the left seeing as they have monopoly on Hollywood and the music industry. You got Future in the top 100 talking about gang gang and molly and xans. How are people surprised we've degenerated?

                • This is quality b8, but what honestly defines a millenial? People in their 20's probably count, but what about highschoolers? They appear to be the grey line. I'd say that most highschoolers today from freshman to senior are born between 1999-2002, maybe earlier. Would babies born in this time span count as millenial or Z?

                  • The last millenials are just about leaving their childhood, the first are pushing 40. You need to be a bit more specific - you can't just hate everyone that was born since 1982.

                      • 1. I do not feel entitled 2. Well, we kinda are the worst... in the civilized world at least. 3. Yeah I don't care about humanity that much. 4. Really, I mean Halo music is the bes- Oh you're talking about that kind of music... yeah that's mostly shit. 5. I mean yeah, I would agree that music before the early 2000s were better, I prefer the 80s myself. 6. Gotta change that thing fast, voting time comes soon. 7. Well, I don't always expect to win... thanks Destiny's shitty PvP. 8. Not all the time do I receive gratification, and if I do I just don't notice. 9. Well I mean free healthcare would be nice but that shit costs money. 10. I don't care, I just want out of this broken education system so I can actually learn how to do my future taxes. I don't think it's always video games, but the general "safe" messages we keep placing, like making sure nearly every -blam!-ing movie is PG-13, not exposing people to more realistic stuff, etc. Also LASO Combat Evolved is a pain in the ass.

                          Wait, you aren't a millinial? How old are you? I know​ you aren't in high school. This doesn't make sense at all, anyway. Video games were way harder in 80s.
