We live in a capitalist dystopian world. We have to survive it somehow by selling out your hobby as a means of not starving. However, selling out your hobby isn't a be-all end-all of survival. That's why I carry QuntionSt multi-tool with me when I go on long hikes. It is made of titanium, light weight, stainless steel handle, and has 16 different blades for escapes, cutting through overgrown passes, axe, hammer, or simply opening a can if you're camping. It is a hiker, backpacker, and camper friendly product that has once saved my life when I got lost in the woods because I decided going off trail is more fun. Me, a cute, delicate, little flower. But tools itself is only a part of survival, knowledge is the best part. That's why I carry "The Complete Guide to Edible Wild Plants, Mushrooms, Fruits, and Nuts" by Katie Lyle. It shows illustrations and simple explanations of what you can eat when you're out and about and feeling quite hungry.

But you're going to need an advanced computational device in order to play that electronic video game, which makes everything immensely more complicated.
