JOBLESS UNI DROPOUT REFUSES TO GET A JOB, STAYS HOME TO PLAY GAMES ALL DAY

So I’ve got this cousin who’s in his late 20s who I play games with pretty often. I’ve always known him to be a cool guy and we’ve been pretty close after years of playing games together despite our age gap. (I’m in my early 40s)

However despite the cool personality he’s got when playing games, he’s actually pretty problematic at home. He has never held a proper job and mostly spends a lot of his time at home playing games. Refuses to get a job and refuses to help out his parent’s business. A couple of years ago he dropped out of SUSS because he said he wasn’t learning anything and wanted to find something else to pursue.

We’re all worried for him and his mother (my aunt) has asked me to talk to him since we’re rather close.

When I asked him about it, he went on about wanting to get rich through cryptocurrency and becoming a full-time streamer and YouTuber. I’ve known this guy for years and I don’t think he’s the creative type, nor have I seen him make any YouTube videos. I also know cryptocurrency is in the dumps right now so I’m unsure about how realistic his goals are.

Maybe I’m getting old, perhaps being a YouTuber is something that’s common with younger folks. I don’t want to dash his dreams but talking to him has made me question if my ‘uncle’ advice from a 40+ year old is any relevant to a young man in his 20s.

Yet, I am also pretty sure he needs to wake up his idea and stop dreaming, but i don’t want to come down on a young man’s dreams too hard.
Any advice I can give him? How would you guys approach this?
