If I were half as serious about my life(as I am while playing games) i'd be a millionaire.

I was playing video games very seriously and I said to myself:

1) "If I were half as serious about my life (as I am while playing video games) I'd be a millionaire now." 

My question is do I need to mention 'playing video games' or is it implied from the context?

Another example:

I was looking at a picture and said:

2) I wish my genetics were half as good (as his).

Same questions- Is 'as his' required?
