some of the comments at the bottom are hilarious.
so would any of you be labeled a game addict by your S.O.?

"My S.O. works all day, then when he comes home, he spends the whole evening on some inane message board. Then at night, he refuses to make love to me in order to play Halo 2. I think I'm going to break his weed whacker."
:P :P :P
My husband suffers a terrible addiction to EverQuest. He even has withdrawal symptoms when we're on holiday, slackened only by finding an internet connection to check on the status of his fellow players. He plays at least eight hours a day, not coming to bed until 3am most mornings. I've become so accustomed to seeing only the back of his head, that I am shocked when I see his face. I'll sign up to the Games Widow clan! Maybe her husband is the guy from the work-unsafe "owned by eq2" thread...

Oh well... sleepin' is overrated anyway. :hihi:

I am not playing online games nearly as much as I was probably a year of two ago. I will admit that I played a little starcraft last night though with my Father-in-law. :D
Remember - a family that games together, stays together... :P

nice way to get your father-in-law on your side. the wife can't challenge both of you!

my s.o. couldn't call me a game addict without admitting he's one, too :dodgy:
