Your question, "how to stop playing video games", I have ask this question many years ago. I was once addicted to video games, and those were the very first thoughts that ran through my mind when I first saw the question you asked.
To me, there is a difference between being a gaming addict and being a game lover. People get addicted to gaming not because the games provide them much fun, but because the world seems so boring.
So you have to find a way of convincing yourself that the world is not so boring after all just like what I did, and no one else can help you do that.
What someone else said will remain what someone else said. It can never be your own unique thought, so it will never motivate you enough to seek the change you need.
Except you have been having the same thought subconsciously and someone else's words inspires you. If that is the case, asking won't be necessary, just find out by yourself.
But if you ask, it simply means you never felt the same thing. However, this is my humble opinion and may not be the final solution.
