This is why video games should cater to solo gamers. Groups of Millennials playing games is a recipe for disaster. Most can't even find a decent job or move out of their parents homes.

  • The only thing wrong with millennials is the entire undercurrent of your post - too quick to play the victim and look for anyone else to blame. You are correct the previous generations failed to teach you, but only one lesson, personal accountability. You can’t change the entire world, but you can take responsibility for the tiny fraction you have influence over and try to leave it better than you found it. Stop wasting time and energy blaming other people for perceived woes. Suck it up and keep moving forward.

  • As a gen x, I can tell you that in the 90s we were portrayed as the worst thing ever. So, I think they say that about every generation. Millennials are fine.

  • I see you're a GenX that fell through the cracks. Each successive generation is getting worse than the previous one.

  • That was only because of the war on drugs and the mass incarceration law that portrayed yall as the worst. Gen x aren't too different from millennials but i have been discriminated against by them when it come to a job due to my age and some share the same opinion of as the baby boomers have.

  • Thank you as baby boomer I 100% agree with you my generation has damm near destroyed this country with their greed . As for putting all the problems that they created on their children and grandchildren is disgusting. Your generation needs to always remind that it's my generation that blam the world up .

  • I thank you good sir. Not many of that generation will own up to that but i had a great grandmother and she treated me great but i found out from my mother that she was a horrible mother so it makes sense why my mom wasn't a great parent starting out.

    I think you mean the current generation of young adults. Millennials are all over 30 now. Not that kids playing video games bothers me at all, but I agree the mindset of the young these days is pretty lazy. The excuses you see below are a good example... "if I move out I'd have to live in a shithole and couldn't drive a new car". When I graduated High School in 1993 I immediately moved into a $200/month shithole(making $5 /hour btw) and had two friends as room mates to defray costs. We had beerfests most nights and ate a lot of Little Ceasars. We were broke but had a good time. We all drove 20 year old cars and were constantly piling our change together for beer or food. Anyway, that's the way it should be. Just because people's parents supported their asses for their entire youth doesn't mean they aren't ready for the bird to leave the nest. I struggled my ass off to buy a house and maintain it, plus pay for 2 vehicles and their insurance. I was paying a mortgage and two car notes by 30 y/o on a $16/hr job. I'm sick of hearing excuses about how "hard it is these days". Bullshit. There were months I subsisted on coffee and Ramen packs. There were times I had to travel hundreds and thousands of miles for a high money job to catch up on my car payments. In 1997 I was forced to go to Florida, McAllen Tx, and Denver back to back and work 7 days a week 12 hours a day a year after I got married so I could stay afloat. The one time I had to borrow money from my Mom to get through the week I was ashamed and paid it back next paycheck and suffered through another couple of weeks of ramen with hot dogs. I've sat in my truck many times and cried from frustration and missing my home while traveling for work. I've had to pull off the highway to get myself together after leaving yet again because it was my responsibility. It's not harder these days. It's always been tough to get a start. The difference is we had pride. And you kids reading this? Your parents probably went through the same shit I did. Show the respect of becoming independent so they know they raised you right.

    I know the point you're trying to make... but did you ever hear your grandpa say "I used to walk 5 miles to school....." or something along those lines? Same thing. It does nothing

  • Idk why you think everyone has to go through a similar situation to be a credited as "responsible". No one lives the same life, thus you can't judge someone's path because it is not your own. If you disagree you have the mindset of the fictitious persona any one yonger then you apparently has

  • I’d like to point out that at 5 dollars an hour 40 hours per week you make 200 dollar rent in one week, where I live minimum wage is 14 which at 40 hours is 560, that’s not even enough for rent in the shiftiest shit hole anymore (this is all not accounting for taxes but still) so ya, do some reading before you run your mouth bud.

  • You didn't account for inflation from a period over 20 years ago. If you had stayed in school and not played so many video games, you would have known that.

  • That’s funny, what does inflation have to do with it? It’s the same percentage of your income either way genius.

  • Here is looked into it for you, this first article shows how’s inflation supports my argument more than yours, it explains that inflation over time makes it harder for the less well established (we lazy millennials) to buy essentials. https://www.investopedia.com/articles/personal-finance/081514/how-inflation-affects-your-cost-living.asp Next an article showing that education is way more expensive now even vs 1993. https://www.forbes.com/sites/mikepatton/2015/11/19/the-cost-of-college-yesterday-today-and-tomorrow/#1bdbc5be6060 And this shows that housing has outpaced even total inflation. https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2018/06/06/home-prices-outpace-income-inflation/679451002/ So in the future how about you have a little bit of compassion for people instead of just assuming that your self-righteous bullshit makes you smarter than everybody else. But I’m guessing that you’re too dumb to do that.
