Nope. Family or monetary gains aren't what I strive for either, but I'd like to have at least released some music or a game before I die, and at this rate, that's not going all that well.

I've watched Let's Plays of mostly older games that I don't think I'd ever really get around to but still want to know about. I actually wish more LP's were similar to how GB does Encyclopedia Bombastica. It's a lot cooler when the LP'er gives video game history tidbits rather than acting as obnoxious as possible.
Most LP's used to be that way; a good place to look for stuff like that is to go to the Something Awful Let's Play Archive and filter for Informative Let's Plays. Research Indicate's Trespasser LP and supergreatfriend's Deadly Premonition LP are the gold standard for that type of Let's Plays, so I suggest you check those out.
Yeah, Something Awful has spawned lots of great and informative let's plays, too bad that has been kinda lost since the youtube generation started using the term.
Just get a credit card and only allow yourself to use it for necessities, groceries and gas fit perfectly with using a credit card.
That's kinda crazy, it's pretty much the opposite of what a credit card would be used for here - where people would use it for more expensive purchases they may need a bit longer to pay off. I don't own a credit card though, and I'm not in a situation where I could ever afford a house, not even by the way of loans. House prices have consistently been rising here for the past few decades, to the point that I'd probably need to pay off a small home over the course of about a hundred years, if I paid a very large part of my salary every month.
Of course I do! That's the fucking point of the Internet.
On topic, I usually don't answer the door, since I live in an apartment building where anybody I know would already have called me or told me before hand that they'd visit me, since they need to be let through the front door. The only ones who'd ever knock on the door are sellers, evangelists or my neighbors.
It is getting quite a lot of coverage here in Sweden at least. Not sure what we in other countries - at least us regular people - can directly do about it though, Russia doesn't really give a shit about the rest of the world, assured that they have more resources we need than we have that they need, so even the proposed sanctions mostly seem to be formalities. Germany's Angela Merkel did have some worrying remarks a couple of days ago about Putin though - as far as I know, Russia and Germany are on relatively good terms, but she stated the Putin seems to have lost grasp of reality, and given the direction Russia has gone in recent years, and Putin's crazy rhetorics as of recently, I think that may have been a pretty sincere assessment. With an increasingly irrational and paranoid guy sitting atop of one of the world's largest war machines and nuclear arsenals, there is some major cause for concern.
My only issue with a lot of older PS1 games are that they don't support the analog controls (pretty much nothing from before 1998 does), I think Warhawk would hold up really well if you could just play it with analog controls, the same is true for Descent and Forsaken (neither of which are on PSN though).
The original Silent Hill holds up really well by the way, it really uses the quirks and shortcomings of the hardware to it's advantage, using the poor draw distance to build tension and atmosphere.
